That's fine. I'm sure that whatever carbon emissions NYC manages to cut will be more than made up for by emissions from states which aren't willing to cripple their own economies.

Sure is fun to watch liberals' heads explode over something one of their guys said. Bill Maher referred to himself as a "house nigger" and now the SJWs are demanding his head on a silver platter.
Completely oblivious to the fact that she's actually become a parody of herself and her position, The Root writer Monique Judge said, "He said 'nigger' with a HARD ASS Rrrrrrrrrruh, so that makes this extra offensive," as if it would have been perfectly fine for Maher to refer to himself as a "house nigga". Sure. Then they'd be bitching about his faked ebonic accent and cultural appropriation: "He's mocking a thousand years of African-American culture and tradition!"
She added, "His show needs to be canceled."
You'd think someone would have clued them in that Maher is one of their fellow travelers, but I suppose that only goes so far in this post-Obama era where Black Lives Matter (As Long As They're Black Thugs Killed By White Cops, But They Don't When They're Law-Abiding Black People Killed By Black Thugs).
Funny how the self-same people complaining about Maher using the word "nigger" on his show don't decry the hip-hop culture, even though "nigga" is every third word in every rap song emitted anywhere by anyone. They'd have us believe that someone saying "nigger" is a crime against humanity. Well, as the article says, "Does that mean the regulators will ban hip hop songs where it just happens to be the most frequently used word for 'commercializing' social anger, injustice and hatred?"
Let's not forget the time some rapper called Trump a "nigga". "Fuck, nigga!" his "song" went, addressing the then GOP candidate for President. Where does that fall in this whole spectrum of good/bad use of "nigger"?
(I actually don't have to ask the question. Black rap "artist", being critical of a Republican--the judges have ruled this a valid use. No penalty.)
The biggest reason leftists are up in arms about Maher's remark is due to the fact that it makes plain the actual way the Democrat party works. By calling himself a "house nigger" Maher has let slip the facade that there is some kind of division between the Democrat party and the leftist media. Also, the Democrat plantation is a place where you must always say the right things and act the right way, lest you be excoriated for your sins.

Overall, the general level of lefty head-splodiness has been rather entertaining of late. Can't complain about that.
