Bill Maher
closed out his show tonight with a New Rule railing against the U.S.
military-industrial complex for being so eager for a possible war with
North Korea. Maher mocked the Korean leader as “Kim Jong Pugsley” and
said he’s not really worried about North Korea targeting the U.S., but
the war-hungry masses just itching to get into another war are a
problem. Maher said that the U.S. has been at war for an insanely long
percentage of its existence, and that it’s time to start defining “peace
as strength.”
Maher said that people are just looking for “any excuse to ramp up
the war machine again,” because if the United States ever ends up not
being involved in any war anywhere in the world, the country may start
thinking about things like poverty and infrastructure, and “that’s no
fucking fun.”
Maher likened going to war with the United States to getting drunk with Lindsay Lohan:
we’re already in the car, so let’s go! Maher rattled off a list of wars
the U.S. has been in just in the last few decades, acknowledging that
while some of them were necessary, the U.S. needs to “look in the mirror
and say, ‘maybe it’s me.’” He said that the war-hungry mentality needs
to be replaced with promoting the idea of “peace as strength.”
Maher cited Jimmy Carter as a role model in that regard, and Dick Cheney as the complete opposite of that. He also ended his New Rule by explaining that Hillary Clinton
lost in 2008 because she voted for the Iraq War and stood by it,
because “what good is being the first female president if you have to be
a dick?”
