Bill Maher likens new GOP Speaker Mike Johnson to Maine mass shooter

Comic and social critic Bill Maher has broken with the pack on “woke” cultural revolutionaries but when it comes to contempt for Christianity, he’s a leftist to the very core.

The smarmy, pot-smoking hedonist attacked the newly elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, a devout Christian, who he likened to the mentally ill mass murderer who had just gunned down 18 people in cold blood in Maine.

On Friday’s edition of HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the host and his guests assailed the Lousiana Republican in a truly despicable fashion, showing that despite coming to his senses on some things, Maher is still a God-hating Democratic party mouthpiece when it comes right down to it.

“When you’re this much of a religious fanatic, there is no room for real democracy. That’s not what you believe in. He said it today. ‘Look in the Bible. That’s my world view,'” Maher said, referring to the new Speaker’s interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“And I was reading about this horrible shooting in Maine. And, you know, we don’t know much about the guy yet, but apparently he heard voices and I thought ‘Is he that different than Mike Johnson?’” Maher asked, his remarks oozing with disdain for devout Christians if not for the almighty himself.

“I mean, degree?” Maher added. “Yes. But it’s thinner than you’d think?”

It was a pretty sick remark considering the human toll from Maine shooting Robert Card’s killing spree that claimed 18 lives when he opened fire in a bowling alley and a restaurant.

One of Maher’s guests, New York University Scott Galloway, a full-blown COVID authoritarian, compared Johnson to the notorious David Duke – a former Democrat.

Speaker Johnson has been the focus of an intense left-wing smear campaign that began immediately after House Republicans voted for him to replace the ousted Kevin McCarthy, winning the gavel after weeks of discord that paralyzed the lower chamber of Congress.

Why do they hate him so much?

Not only did the new Speaker reject the Biden regime’s blaming guns for the actions of the deranged Card and reject White House pressure on Republicans to pass new restrictions on the Second Amendment rights before the victims had been identified, but he also referred critics who questioned his worldview to the ultimate authority.

“I am a Bible-believing Christian,” Johnson told Hannity. “Someone asked me today in the media, they said, “It’s curious, people are curious. ‘What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun?’” I said, “Well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it, that’s my worldview. That’s what I believe and so I make no apologies for it.”

Scratch a leftist and the hatred of Christianity is just below the surface.
