Real Time host Bill Maher accused conservatives on Friday of ignoring the increase in reports of excessive force by local police departments — the kind of “jack-booted government thugs” Republicans used to criticize.
“This is the massive expansion of government power that you numbskulls in the Tea Party should be freaking out about,” Maher said. “You’re always screaming about the loss of liberty, and how tyranny is coming. Yeah, it’s coming right through the door with a battering ram, no warrant, and a stun grenade. Or to put it in a way you can understand, I’m scared of the cops, and I’m white.”
