Bill Maher's New Rules ended last night by scorching the Supreme Court and the American Taliban for their “naive” thoughts on racism and campaign finance and how America’s way past the point of not being corrupted on those two issues.
Maher first took on the ruling that gutted the Voting Rights Act, mocked the idea that “racism had been cured” and that “other than shopping at Barney’s… there was no evidence anymore that black people needed special protections.”
And as for John Roberts‘ astonishment that people think the South is more racist than the North, Maher cited slavery, the KKK, and the fact that “Paula Deen lives there.”
Maher also addressed the Citizens United ruling and the assumption that more money in politics doesn't lead to corruption, “which is true except for always.” He found it troubling how “naive” conservatives appear to be about America.
“That is the problem with today’s conservatives. They are too sentimental about how wonderful America is. Racism? That’s over. Moneyed interests? They couldn't corrupt us if they tried!”And when the Supreme Court gave more power to the people, they reacted with the line from Animal House: “You fucked up, you shouldn't have trusted us!”
