Bill Maher Trashes Libertarians: Movement Went ‘Nuts,’ ‘Intellectually Stuck In Their Teen Years’



VIDEO here: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/bill-maher-tears-into-libertarians-movement-went-nuts-intellectually-stuck-in-their-teen-years/


Bill Maher ended his show tonight by railing against a political movement he has aligned himself with in the past: libertarianism. He slammed the current wave of libertarians, among them Paul Ryan and Rand Paul, for having a “creepy obsession” with free markets, Ayn Rand, and government staying out of the way. He made it clear that he has not abandoned the libertarianism altogether, saying, “I didn’t go nuts, this movement did.”

1. Yeeowtch! That's going to leave a mark!

He skewered Paul Ryan very nicely along the way.

He also managed to delineate between the social libertarians (which many of us here are) and the wingnut nihilists who want to do away with everything, let god sort it all out.

I hope this one is picked up around the web. It was one of his better ones.
