12:51 pm, July 21st, 2012Yesterday, as details were constantly emerging from Aurora about the movie theater shooting during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, comedian Bill Maher
took to Twitter to make a point about American exceptionalism, saying
that the shooting is a “reminder” that many things that people believes
makes the U.S. exceptional are bad.

Maher tweeted his thoughts last night, specifically calling out conservatives for their view of American exceptionalism.
NewsBusters’ Noel Sheppard tore into Maher for his remarks,
wondering “how stoned Maher was when he wrote this nonsense.” He
questioned how Maher could take such a dim view of American
exceptionalism and explained what makes his words all the more
What should make people sadder than the comment itself is
that there are so many folks around this great nation who agree with
him, and that maybe such anti-American sentiments are part of the
Maher has hit upon the theme of American exceptionalism before. Last
month on his HBO show, Maher said the United States needs to “get over”
the idea and claimed that the United States will be a Mormon nation
someday because it is an American-centric religion. Maher took a lot of
heat from conservatives for his remarks. Watch that video here:
