Sign the Petition to

Richard Plepler, CEO of HBO

​Bill Maher continues to show his true colors -- he's a vicious person who makes a living off trying to destroy religion and conservatism. Now he's adding racism to the mix after the following exchange with Senator Ben Sasse on a recent Saturday night show:
"I've got to get to Nebraska more," said Maher.

To which Senator Sasse earnestly replied, "You're welcome. We'd love to have you work in the fields with us."

Maher narrowed his brow. "Work in the fields?" he said, raising his palms. "Senator, I'm a house [N-word]."

This is unacceptable. Maher has apologized but it's not enough. Many others who come before have been fired for racism. Comics regularly cross the line and they certainly have the latitude given by the 1st Amendment, but there are levels of decency that shouldn't be crossed. As Senator Sasse said later, the history of the n-word is an attack on universal human dignity. It’s therefore an attack on the American Creed. Just don't use it.

Maher has got to go. HBO, you better be listening.

Signed,

Conservative Corps
