Bill Maher: "Being Fat Is A Bad Thing";
When Did It Become Taboo To
Talk About Getting Healthy?

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 9/8/2019 6:51:20 AM

Bill Maher addressed the obesity epidemic in a monologue he delivered Friday night at the end of his program 'Real Time' on HBO. Maher criticized the culture that protects people from judging others, especially when it comes to "fat-shaming." Maher said fat-shaming doesn't need to end, it needs to make a comeback. The comedian said shaming and judging are necessary and the first step in reform. "I know this is a controversial thing to say now in today's America but being fat is a bad thing," Maher said. "We shouldn't taunt people about it. And overeating shouldn't be singled out as the only vice. It isn't. We all have something.

Comments:

Spoken like a true liberal. Everybody knows that being fat is unhealthy, but Bill Maher wants to tell you what to eat and how much to weigh. They just can’t help themselves.

It seems to me that being stupid is worse than being overweight, Bill. So look in the mirror, you may see thin but then do you see what you really are too? That would be an indoctrinated nitwit. I thought all you liberals and feminists were all about who we are not what we look like. Somehow it is all about celebrity and looks and perfection these days. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds, you pretend to support things like the Special Olympics and yet push destroying every person who may be born to compete in those games. Amazing how liberals think of themselves as perfection and somehow we should all be aiming for their utopia. "Utopia", Mr Bill, is a book and a word, which St Thomas More made up and it means "nowhere" and that is what you and your ilk are constantly trying to lead us to. It is a nightmare place where there are no imperfections and sooner or later the "perfect" police are going to come for you.

It is all about choices. Democrats want to tell you what to choose. Sorry I don't buy into their mantra. My choices are about what God wants from me. He spells it out in the Bible.

Holy Crap Batman! I finally found a topic where I agree with Maher. I hat the guy with a passion, but even a broken clock is correct twice a day. Fat has become part of the left wings PC agenda. The want to protect fat, so fat people vote for them. When I was 30, I looked at 18 year old girls and said darn, they certainly didn’t make them like that when I was a teen! Now I look at 18 year old girls and say , damn I am glad they didn’t make them like that when I was a teen! Being overweight is a killer. It kills getting out of the house and experiencing nature, it causes s more global warming because it takes more energy to produce the food fat people eat, it deposits fat in your liver killing you slowly and it deposits in your cardiovascular system sapping energy as it kills you.

Mar is a disgusting human being.Being fat is hormonal condition having to do with more with heredity and what you eat rather than how much you eat. And for years our very own experts told us to eat a low fat diet. Which means high sugar. That's why there is more fat people. Not any character issue that Mar is insinuating.

I don't often agree with Bill, but I do on this issue. Most of our health problems are caused by what we eat. And when the government gets involved, it usually gets worse.

When I got married in 1977, I weighed about 170 pounds. Now I weigh 230. It's all muscle, I tell you. I still ride my bicycle for exercise every other day. But sitting at a desk since 1995 has taken a toll. No shaming. No judgement. But speaking from experience, carrying more weight than necessary never helps. If you think so, put on a 40 pound backpack and carry it around all day. See how you feel when you take it off in the evening. Processed foods have a big part in it, I believe. It's not just genetic.

People make choices and they are ultimately responsible for those choices. As long as they don't break the law and they respect the equal rights of others, what is the problem? Maher has just exposed himself as a biased, prejudiced and intolerant person.

Disliking the messenger doesn't mean we shouldn't consider the message. Many things about the changes in weight perception horrify me these days, but I am really horrified to see restaurant food portions. They keep getting larger and larger. And I'm not talking about Joe's Diner; I'm talking about the medium-upscale restaurants that I frequent. Spending time in an airport recently has reminded me of how overweight we are as a culture. Spending time in Walmart is even worse in that regard.

Oh, please, #8. People may have a genetic pre-disposition to gain weight but that can be controlled through eating healthy foods, controlling portion size and being active. I know because I come from a family in which every one of us has a tendency to easily gain weight but we have all learned to control it through self discipline and not one of us is overweight at all. I have basically been on a “diet” since I was about 12 years old. At 67 years of age, I am 5’4” and weigh 118 pounds. Being obese is a choice. The left has been telling us for years that we are not responsible for our actions and our life situations, that someone else is. So why would someone like Maher be surprised by the obesity epidemic? If the left ever gets their way and enforces “Medicare for all”, the first people who will be denied medical care will be the obese. Need a knee replacement? We won’t touch you until you lose X number of pounds. Got type 2 diabetes? We won’t treat you until you lose X number of pounds.

I am very disturbed by the great numbers of fat young people I see around. Fat is not just genetic. It can be inherited when bad eating habits are passed down through a family, generation after generation. Mostly it is about consuming more calories than one burns off as energy. We were far more active than many (not all) of today’s kids are. We started young with games that involved running, playground equipment that required exertion. We walked to school. We had better playgrounds with better equipment, and more time was allotted to our using them. We rode bikes everywhere. For miles. Up and down hills. Our Mother was not our chauffeur. We drank milk instead of soda. Desserts in our house were simple. And not on the table every day. We ate fresh fruit. But mostly we consumed far more calories by being very active than we consumed.

I’ve lost 22 lbs. The first 13 were on the “I found out my husbands cheating on me” diet and I had no idea I was losing weight. I don’t recommend it. The next 9 were on purpose. I’m posting this here now because I don’t think very many people will see it but I need to get it off my chest. Some days are better than others and this hasn’t been a good one.

Having a bit of fat on you is not necessarily bad for you but the do-gooders would have us believe that it's a national emergency just like they do with climate change. Fat is a necessary part of the human body and, even if you have subcutaneous fat - which is what makes us appear fat to others - it's not necessarily a form of obesity. Fat and obese can be mutually exclusive.

Guess what happens when an employee randomly harasses a customer and throws them out of the store without cause? The employee gets fired, that's what. And everyone, or at least everyone sensible, agrees that they deserve it. Unless, of course, that employee is transgender. Then, as intersectionality demands, special rules apply. The progressive and LGBT media cover the incident in a way that implies the trans employee's actions were righteous, so long as the person they targeted was a conservative. Or at least, that’s how NBC News and the Hill bizarrely decided to spin the story.

The Texas senator told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week" that he thinks the Democratic candidates will call for impeachment to rile their base. "I bet you the next Democratic debate, they'll all be saying impeach Kavanaugh, impeach Trump," Cruz said. "There's nobody they don't want to impeach.

In the first hour of Donald Trump’s presidency, the newly appointed administration wiped Barack Obama’s administration’s climate and energy pages from the White House website, replacing them with the America First Energy Plan, which mostly focused on “clean coal”. A few weeks later, the EPA’s website was stripped of any mention of climate change at all. Activists across the country panicked, but as the Trump administration began its hectic reign, their outcry was largely ignored in the wake of other devastations.

The president suggested that Kavanaugh bring civil suits for libel and decried “accusations without recrimination.” (tweets) A Saturday story in the Times from reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly prompted the presidents tweets. Pogrebin and Kelly are the authors of a forthcoming book about the justice called “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” The pair reported they reached seven individuals who could further corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s accusation.

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump ousted John Bolton in part due to frustration with his third national security adviser’s guidance to pair military power with economic pressure against Venezuela, according to current and former administration officials. One senior administration official said that Trump had grown weary of repeated vows from Bolton that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro would be out of office in short order. A second official said that they had clashed over Bolton’s efforts to advance planning for military intervention. That official pointed to the administration’s national security strategy, which predated Bolton’s tenure and called for “strong diplomatic engagement” to isolate rogue nations in the Western Hemisphere. “That has been

I thought we'd at least get Oprah. President Trump's victory was supposed to be the start of a new era of celebrity politics in America. He proved that a candidate with no political experience but substantial name recognition can win — that fame is, for many Americans, reason enough to give a campaign a serious hearing. For 2020, I anticipated the Democratic Party would respond in kind, and I don't think I'm alone in that expectation.
