Maher: ‘Slow-Moving Right-Wing Coup’ In US, I Don’t Trust NC GOP Not To Hack Voting Machines

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that there is a “slow-moving right-wing coup,” he doesn’t trust Republicans in North Carolina not to hack voting machines, and “in security, law enforcement agencies, it’s usually right-wing folks. The difference between fascism — and I know that’s a strong word, but that’s what it is, and what we have enjoyed in this country for 240 years, is that those types are under the rule of law. If Trump gets elected, they’re not. They are the rule of law.”

Maher said, “This is a slow-moving right-wing coup, that we are witnessing. When the FBI is politicized to this degree, working with Russia, hacking one side, this is a coup, and this could f*cking happen in this country.”

After former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) said that “a lot of people” “appreciate a strong leader.” Maher responded, “Yeah, they’re called fascists.” A point Granholm agreed with.

Maher added, “[S]ince the Supreme Court shot down the Voting Rights Act…868 polling places in the South have been closed, since the last election. Those are the people who vote Democratic. A federal judge scolded North Carolina, which is run by Republicans, for preventing people from voting, and I don’t trust them not to hack the machines. I mean, if the FBI — if what we learned this week about the FBI, that there’s this faction. And of course, in security, law enforcement agencies, it’s usually right-wing folks. The difference between fascism — and I know that’s a strong word, but that’s what it is, and what we have enjoyed in this country for 240 years, is that those types are under the rule of law. If Trump gets elected, they’re not. They are the rule of law.”

He concluded, “If the FBI is capable of taking leaks from Russia and using it against one side, there have been no leaks on the other side. Can you imagine what’s in the Republican emails?”
