Bill Maher Panel Wants to Angrily F**k Bachmann and Santorum

You heard it right. And gee wasn’t it funny? Isn’t it funny when a bunch of Neanderthals sit around a shiny, glossy table with lights and cameras pointed at them resisting the urged to jiggle their junk come up with hilarity like this? Wow! ROTFL! LOL! OMG!

So what exactly did they say? Well, they must have been trying to top Jon Stewart’s bit in which he claimed that Dr. Bachmann cures gays “So He Can Hoard All The Gayness For Himself,” which, by the way, was hilarious and didn’t involve “angrily raping”, er, f**king, anyone.

If you watch the video, you can see that the conversation actually started out rather seriously with sex advice columnist Dan Savage discussing Dr. Bachmann’s clinic: “You can’t pray away the gay, but you can torture a conflicted closet case to death.”

Maher then asserted that the clinic was receiving money through Medicare to practice witchcraft. Wiccans beg to differ.

That’s when things got “Real”. Comic Marc Maron, host of WTF with Marc Maron, began discussing Marcus Bachmann, and, of course, the vibe Marcus gives off. But it wasn’t the vibe Marc was interested in so much as it was how to handle Mrs. Bachmann:

I don’t want to be crass but I hope [he] takes all that rage that comes from repression and denial into the bedroom with her…and I hope he f**ks her angrily, because that’s how I would. And I’ve thought about it. I just uh…  [audience and panel laughs and claps as Maron sits back in satisfaction at his “accomplishment”]

It’s a political statement I’m trying to make.

That statement apparently was, “If I disagree with your beliefs and I think you’re horrible woman, I hope your husband rapes f**ks you angrily because I want to f**k you angrily.”

Well, Dan Savage couldn’t be outdone and apparently felt the need to “spread” the anger around. He was also concerned that there might be the possibility that Mr. Maron might be called a sexist (where did he get that idea?). So to come to Marc’s rescue he offered this bit of help:

SAVAGE: Just so you don’t get charges of sexism, ‘cause only Michele Bachmann was [involved], I sometimes think about f**king the shit out of Rick Santorum. Just ‘cause I think he needs it. This is not just women we’re talking about f**king. It’s like, let’s bone that Santorum.

MARON: Let’s video it.

SAVAGE: I’m up for whipping up some Santorum in Santorum.

Just ‘cause Savage think Santorum needs it? Sounds like a group of men talking about raping another man because one of them “thinks he needs it.” And Maron wants to videotape it. Funny stuff, right?

And thank Jiminy Savage clarified that this wasn’t a sexist rant with his “This is not just women we’re talking about f**king” comment! As long as were talking about f**king men too, then we’re okay.

Now, we all know that none of these guys are actually going to do it. But here’s some food for thought.

It was Bill Maher and numerous others all up in a tizzy before, during and after the Arizona shooting in which Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot are gravely wounded. Maher and others, including myself, were upset at the heated rhetoric coming from the right about guns and reloading, and specifically, Sarah Palin’s crosshairs graphic. Maher even appeared on Jay Leno just this last January claiming that the “go to rhetoric” for folks on the right is: “Wouldn’t it be fun to kill the people we disagree with?” Mind you, the Leno crowd did not agree and Maher’s response to them was “No? Really then, do you read?”

And while I agree that the rhetoric is out of control, Bill Maher and his friends need to reexamine their rhetoric.

They seem to think that violence can only come out of the barrel of a gun. I would argue that most women know that that is absolutely not the case. Violence can come from all sorts of objects including simply the human body and dicks like the ones sitting around that table.

BTW is “angrily f**k” the new PC term for rape? Not sure, just asking.
