Bill Maher: A lot of people were angry at the way Netanyahu won this election. They said it was racist that he said, at the last minute Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls.
And I guess that is racist, in the strictest sense, hes bringing race into the equation. But, first of all, like Reagan didnt win races with racism? Or Nixon? Or Bush? Like they didnt play the race card? Reagan opened his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi, remember that? Remember Willie Horton?
I heard a lot of commentators here say, it would been as if Mitt Romney, in 2012, on the eve of the election said, black voters are coming out in droves to the polls. But I dont know if thats really a great analogy. I think that would be a good analogy if America was a country that was surrounded by 12 or 13 completely black nations who had militarily attacked us many times, including as recently as last year. Would we let them vote? I dont know. When we were attacked by the Japanese, we didnt just not let them vote, we rounded them up and put them in camps.
