Bill Maher blasted for saying ‘kill the right people’


...Television host and political commentator Bill Maher served up the latest example of this mentality during a recent appearance on StarTalk Radio...

“I do believe in more DNA testing. My motto is let’s kill the right people. I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving – that’s what I’m for. It’s too crowded – the planet is too crowded – and we need to promote death.”

The comment came after host Neil deGrasse Tyson asked Maher about his position on abortion and the death penalty...

...“The Pope is consistently pro-life, I am consistently pro-death.” said Maher, drawing laughter from the host...

...“I’m not randomly going on the street and saying, ‘Hey, we’re going to kill you,’ ” Maher said. “I mean, we’re talking about people who have earned it. But as I say, kill the right people. I’m just not one of those people who thinks that all life is precious. You know? I bet you a lot of people wouldn’t say that, but if you’re pro choice, maybe that’s really what you’re thinking.”

Individual lives don't matter because life is "teeming everywhere" around us and it is something that even a dog can create, he said....
