Maher: Racists are more likely to be Republicans.

Maher is, as always, bang on the money.

"Government power bothers conservatives unless it's directed at people that are not white. It seems like there is something like that going on," Maher said on ABC Sunday.

Conservative columnist George Will seemed to take Maher's words personally. "Mr. Maher, just said -- if i heard him right -- that conservatives basically are racists and like government intrusion only against people that aren't white," said Will.

"Let me defend myself," countered Maher. "I would never say and I have never said, because it's not true that Republicans, all republicans are racists. That would be silly and wrong. But now days, if you are racist, you're probably a Republican. And that is quite different," explained Maher.
And Maher is right when he states that the reaction to the Tea Party movement would be entirely different if they were groups of black people taking to the streets threatening to take the country back by force unless they were given what they wanted.

They are so small in numbers though aren't they? It is a predominately white movement.
