Man Who Calls Women ‘Dumb Twats’ and ‘C-nts’ Now Minority Owner of NY Mets

Remember all the manufactured outrage when Rush Limbaugh wanted to buy a piece of the St. Louis Rams? The mere thought of it was met with howls of indignation of race charlatans and hucksters. Well, now belligerent “comedian” Bill Maher has bought a piece of the New York Mets and nobody seems offended by his past behavior.

Fresh off their Bernie Madoff fiasco, is this the direction the Mets want to go in? I guess they’ll take money from anyone.

Funny really is money.

Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time,” announced on Sunday at Citi Field that he had purchased a minority stake in the Mets earlier this year — and the sometimes controversial, always funny comedian wasn’t kidding.

Always funny? Is this a news story or opinion piece?

Maher, a lifelong Mets fan, says he thinks he made a “great investment” by purchasing a share in the team.

“I think people sometimes forget there’s only one National League franchise in New York City, and they’re not making anymore,” he said. “I just thought it would be a great place, especially after I’ve seen some of the ways money can disappear in recent years. I had my money in Lehman Brothers in 2008.”

    Any sports deals with Rush as an investor got sh*t canned for less.

    Who is Maher planning to donate his ill gotten gains?

    BOYCOTT the NY METS. They have the nerve to accept partial ownership by this LOUT. BOYCOTT THEM.

    So, the guy who repeatedly equated mentally handicapped children with dogs is now a co-owner of a baseball team. I hope they and he loses everything.

    I’ve been a Mets fan since childhood (born in Astoria, Queens). I was a Mets fan in the late 70s. That wasn’t easy.

    I’m done.
