It’s not difficult to admire Dana Loesch. Her latest merit was earned opposite Bill Maher and fellow Real Time panelists John Legend and Markos Moulitas. Maher would ask a question, pause just long enough to cue her response, then join the other two in talking over her. Such ungallant behavior is hardly surprising, and was not the last evidence of Maher’s inability to confront conservatism honestly.

During his “New Rules” segment, Maher threw out two theories regarding the psychology of conservatives that are as specious as they are offensive. In fact, these statements are so ridiculous, they disprove each other.

Building off a tasteless rant regarding Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and his alleged sexual indiscretions, Maher manufactures a deeper implication which is more creative than credible.

Brett Favre is like a lot of white males. He’s owned the world for so long, he’s going a little crazy now that he doesn’t…

… because, for hundreds of years, white penises were America. White penises found America. They made the rules and they called the shots, in the workplace, in the home, and at the ballot box. But now the unthinkable is happening.

White penises are becoming the minority. 2010 was the first year in which more minority babies were born than white babies. This is what conservatives are really upset about. The president is black, and the secretary of state is a woman, and every shortstop is Latino, and every day-time talk show host is a lesbian. And suddenly this country is way off track and needs some serious “restoring.”

Which is more likely? Brett Favre sending a remarkably attractive woman a provocative picture in a foolish bid to woo her into bed? Or Brett Favre sending the same picture to act out his post-colonial white-bred frustration with shifts in nationwide demographics?

If the Tea Party and the broader conservative movement are a reaction to a demographic milestone established in 2010, why did it surge in 2009? Maher is off the deep end here.

That’s not the end of it though. He continues, making reference to Christine O’Donnell, Sarah Palin, and Michele Bachmann.

That’s where this crew comes in, the lovely MILFs of the New Right. And their little secret is that their popularity comes exclusively from white men. Look at the polling. Minorities hate them. Women hate them. Only white men like them… My theory is that those women represent something that those men miss dearly, the traditional idiot housewife.

Here Maher demonstrates his leftist misogyny, stereotyping conservative women, dismissing professional accomplishments in consequence of political views. Let us first forgive the insult to our mothers and grandmothers, the class of women whom Maher refers to with open distain. While serving one’s family as a housewife ought to be commended rather than ridiculed, a cursory reading of these women’s bios demonstrates they have worked extensively outside the home.

The real joke here is the dissonance between these two sentiments. If white men are really so threatened by shifting demographics, as represented by a black president and a female secretary of state, why would they seek to elect more “idiot housewives” to office? More to the point, why didn’t these supposedly racist white men flip out over Condoleezza Rice? Serving in the administration of George W. Bush, Rice began as national security advisor, then became the first black female secretary of state. Rice replaced Colin Powell in the latter position, who also served under Bush and was the first black secretary of state in American history.

Given the glaring incongruities, there is no other way to say it. These remarks portray Maher as a moron, all the more so when you consider the self-satisfied smirk with which he utters them. He really believes he’s on to something, that he’s cracked the conservative mind. Instead, he reveals his own hateful prejudice and intellectual sloth.
