RACISM! Bill Maher calls Ferguson shooting victim Michael Brown a ‘thug’

blmhrWhere is the outrage from the left? On Bill Maher’s show Friday night, he labeled Michael Brown, the black man who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. sparking a race riot, a “thug.”

Gateway Pundit, which observed that Maher also gets a free pass for calling conservative women c*nts, reported Maher’s comments,

And Michael Brown’s people. I’m sorry, but Michael Brown’s people say he is a gentle giant. Well, we saw of when he was in that 7-11. No, he wasn’t a gentle giant. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not a gentle giant. He certainly didn’t deserve to be shot for it.

The YouTube video has been pulled, probably because Maher’s people complained. Any well-known conservative who has tried to cast blame on Brown for his actions toward the police officer has been roundly castigated. While Maher may not be racist for calling Brown a thug, why isn’t the left protesting outside his studio and demanding that his advertisers pull their ads from his show?
