+ WATCH: Bill Maher Once Said N-Word 11 Times and Told a Black Woman He Couldn’t Tell She Was Black — And Didn’t Get Canceled

TOMMY CHRISTOPHER APR 17, 2021 11:46 AM



Comic and political pundit Bill Maher hosted Sharon Osbourne for an extended complaint session about “cancel culture” on Friday night, partially because Maher was able to survive cultural cancellation himself after he said the n-word 11 times on the air in a segment of his old Politically Incorrect show.

On the latest episode of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher commiserated with Osbourne over her exit from CBS’ The Talk following an on-air meltdown during which she berated a co-host and demanded she not cry.

But for all of his complaining about “cancel culture,” Maher has managed to cultivate an immunity to the alleged phenomenon that would make Pfizer and Moderna jealous.

Lots of people probable remember the flap surrounding his invocation of the term “house nigga” during an interview with Ben Sasse. Maher was moved to release a brief statement of apology that time, which was followed by a lengthy schooling from Professor Michael Eric Dyson and some professional counseling from Ice Cube and Symone Sanders.

But long before that, during the run of his ABC show Politically Incorrect, Maher took some truly atrocious liberties during a discussion of racial slurs with Black actor and activist Anne-Marie Johnson.

During that segment, while advancing the even-in-2001-tired-as-hell argument that white people can say the n-word because Black people say it, he blurted out “nigga” 11 times — including the claim that people regularly walk up to him and say “Bill, you a nigga!” — and told Johnson he’d never know she was Black if she hadn’t alerted him to that fact.


The segment included some other pretty sickening moments, such as David Spade explaining how much the mockery of white people by Black comics hurts him and Sarah Silverman defending her assertion that activist Guy Aoki wasn’t really offended by her use of the word “chink” in a joke, and was just trying to get attention for himself.

She concluded the segment by telling Aoki, to his face, “You know what? There are only two Asian people I know that I don’t like. One is you, and the other is my friend Steve, who actually went pee pee in my Coke.”

That episode aired on August 22, 2001, and it was not followed by any outcry, and Maher’s show stayed on the air for nearly a year after that, even after he said something that actually did eventually get him canceled — at least from ABC.

But Maher landed on his feet quickly, and has since thrived on HBO, where he consistently rails against the “cancel culture” that he mysteriously seems to escape time after tine. How about that?

Watch the full segment above.

+ They're the military's most elite. In secret online groups, some spew racism, conspiracies.

WASHINGTON — They're the most elite, lethally trained members of the U.S. military, widely considered the best of the best. And yet in secret Facebook groups exclusively for special operations forces that were accessed by NBC News, they share misinformation about a "stolen" 2020 election, disparaging and racist comments about America's political leadership and even QAnon conspiracy theories.

+ CAPITOL RIOTS:

Oath Keeper Becomes First Capitol Insurrectionist to Rat Out Fellow Rioters

ONE DOWN

DOJ/Criminal Complaint


A heavy metal guitarist and self-described “founding” member of the Oath Keepers who stormed the U.S. Capitol armed with bear spray has become the first Jan. 6 insurrectionist to plead guilty and cooperate with the feds, prosecutors said Friday.

Jon Ryan Schaffer, a 53-year-old from Indiana, pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding and entering a restricted building with a deadly or dangerous weapon during a Friday hearing. During the hearing, Judge Amit Mehta also revealed that Schaffer will be sponsored for witness protection.


“The defendant in this case admits forcing his way into the U.S. Capitol on January 6 for the express purpose of stopping or delaying congressional proceedings essential to our democratic process. These actions are disgraceful and unacceptable,” FBI Deputy Director Paul M. Abbate said in a statement.

The plea, which requires his full cooperation with federal prosecutors in their ongoing investigation, marks the first time a rioter has copped to his crimes on Jan. 6. It’s been exactly 100 days since thousands of MAGA rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol to prevent Joe Biden's electoral certification. So far, 400 individuals have been charged in connection to the riots.


Schaffer was released after the Friday hearing until his sentencing, though he must now submit to court supervision in the Northern District of Indiana, surrender his passport, and stay away from Washington, D.C. His release came after his attorney argued for no travel restrictions, claiming Schaffer is an “internationally known musician and recording artist.”

Plea negotiations between Schaffer’s lawyers and federal prosecutors were unintentionally disclosed earlier this month after sealed Department of Justice documents were accidentally filed on the public docket.


“The government’s ongoing plea negotiations with this defendant are the first and most advanced plea negotiations involving any of the over 300 Capitol Riot defendants,” federal prosecutors wrote in the April 5 filing. By pleading guilty on Friday, Schaffer will likely face a four-year prison sentence.

The guitarist and founding member of the heavy metal band Iced Earth was initially charged in January with six crimes for participating in the Jan. 6 siege while wearing a hat that proclaimed him to be an “Oath Keepers Lifetime Member.”

In his plea agreement, Schaffer “acknowledged he is a founding lifetime member of the Oath Keepers,” and admitted to traveling to D.C. to protest the results of the presidential election, which he believed was rigged, prosecutors stated.

“Schaffer admitted to being among the first individuals to push past the damaged doors and into the Capitol building, forcing officers to retreat. Schaffer and others advanced toward five or six backpedaling USCP officers while members of the mob swelled inside of the Capitol and overwhelmed the officers,” prosecutors said in a press release announcing his plea agreement. “The officers ultimately deployed a chemical irritant to disperse the mob. Schaffer was among the people who were sprayed in the face, after which exited while holding his own bear spray in his hands.”

During the siege, Schaffer allegedly sprayed multiple U.S. Capitol police officers with bear spray as they breached the government building. A criminal complaint also states Schaffer verbally assaulted officers inside the building.

Long before his decision to storm the Capitol alongside his paramilitary members, prosecutors state Schaffer held far-right extremist views.


“During an interview in 2017, Schaffer identified himself as an ‘anarchist’ and referred to the federal government as a ‘criminal enterprise.’ During that same interview, Schaffer stated that the 2016 Presidential election was ‘rigged,’” the complaint states.

After the election, Schaffer attended several Trump rallies protesting the election results, including one March event where he told reports, “If somebody wants to bring violence, I think there’s a lot of us here that are ready for it. We don’t want that, but if they bring it we’re going to respond to that, trust me.”

So far, prosecutors have charged over a dozen Oath Keepers with conspiracy, including Jessica Watkins, a 38-year-old former Army vet accused of recruiting members to “fight hand to hand” to take over the Capitol. Prosecutors describe the Oath Keepers as “an organization that characterizes itself as a militia of former law enforcement and military personnel and has often, as a group, urged President Trump to declare Martial Law in order to prevent Congress from certifying the Electoral College Results.”

Yeah, I was actually doing it before I even realized what I had been doing, heh...


Wearing All-Black for years until I finally noticed that I owned Women's Pants and Tops.


Even My Dad was wearing Women's Sandals until I pointed it out. Heh.


Later, as My Stage Attire evolved (influenced much by Goth, Sci-Fi, Comics etc.), I started moreso using Skirts, Tops, and other thangs.


Ha.
