Bill Maher: California’s Economy Is Booming Because Here NRA Stands For “Nuts, Racists, And *ssholes” (Video)
HBO host Bill Maher says California’s economy is booming because there’s no Tea Party and no GOP “legislative cockblock.” On “On Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Maher claimed California will single-handedly drag the rest of America kicking and screaming into the present.
“New rule,” Maher said, “Conservatives who love to brag about American exceptionalism must come here to California and see it in person. And then they should be afraid. Because while right-wingers are taking over places like North Carolina and Texas and even Wisconsin, California is creating the kind of modern, liberal nation the country as a whole can only dream about.”
“And not only can’t the rest of the country stop us, we’re going to drag you with us,” he added.
“Here in California,” he said, “we’re not just gluten-free and peanut-free and soy-free, we’re tea party-free! Yes, we can live in reality!”
Maher said it’s in California’s nature to try new things.
He said places like Texas “like freedom a little too much, like when that unregulated fertilizer plant blew up.”
He said the two things conservative often tout, the free market and states rights, are the two things that will ultimately “bend the country in California’s image as a socialist fagtopia.”
“Maybe our constipated Congress in Washington can’t pass gun control laws.”
He said that’s because California doesn’t care about the NRA. “Out here NRA stands for ‘nuts, racists, and assholes.’”
He said while other states are “working with Jesus to make abortion more miserable,” California is making it easier.
“And while immigrants are demonized in Washington and elsewhere, in California we just ok’d driver’s licenses for undocumented aliens. That’s right,” he said, “we’re letting them drive cars just like white people.”
Maher concluded, “We can’t be worrying about the nonsense that keeps Fox News viewers up at night.”
