Congressman Michael Grimm is using comedian Bill Maher’s “Flip a District” campaign as a fund-raising opportunity.

The Republican lawmaker’s campaign fired off an email to supporters earlier this afternoon declaring that Staten Island and Brooklyn voters do not agree with Mr. Maher’s “anti-Catholic, leftist propaganda.”

“Bill Maher is hardly the spokesman for traditional American values, in fact – he’s the opposite,” wrote Mr. Grimm.

One week ago, Mr. Maher, a liberal late-night TV host, declared Mr. Grimm one of two congressmen he urged his viewers to target in this year’s elections.

“He’s a guy who thrust himself into the running this year by threatening to throw a reporter off the balcony of the Capitol,” Mr. Maher said of Mr. Grimm, according to Politico. “He seems to be all of Staten Island distilled in one man and there is a lot of enthusiasm out there for making him go away.”

But in the fund-raising email, titled “The Liberals Are Coming,” Mr. Grimm made it clear that he is not amused. Mr. Grimm took particular exception to Mr. Maher’s past commentary critical of religion.

“When it comes to Maher’s judgement, what should we expect from the man who said, ‘The Bible looks like it started out as a game of Mad Libs,'” wrote Mr. Grimm. “Liberals like Maher don’t share our values!”

“Like Bill Maher, the DCCC and Mayor de Blasio (aka the most progressive Mayor of New York City has ever seen) want this seat because it would make their lives much easier – let’s face it, I am the only one standing between them and a liberal take over of NYC. I am the only Republican Congressman who represents a borough within New York City, a city of 8.5 million people.  THEY WANT ME GONE!” Mr. Grimm continued.

Greetings!

The liberals are coming and apparently, they want MY Congressional seat!  Bill Maher announced that he’s taking aim and wants to “Flip This District” -
YOUR DISTRICT, YOUR VOICE!

What Maher doesn’t understand is that the voters in Staten Island and Brooklyn do not agree with his anti-Catholic, leftist propaganda. Bill Maher is hardly the spokesman for traditional American values, in fact – he’s the opposite.

Maher not only offers advice to what districts need to be flipped, just this week he shared some words of wisdom to Democrat candidates on how to best “sell” Obamacare to the American people,  Stand your ground. When a Tea Partier says, ‘Obamacare is a government takeover,’ say, ‘I wish’.” 

When it comes to Maher’s judgement, what should we expect from the man who said, “The Bible looks like it started out as a game of Mad Libs.” 

 

Liberals like Maher don’t share our values!

 

Maher has even shared his idea of what valuesare,
“When we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems.  That’s something I value.  When they talk about values, they’re talking about things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal to Jesus, praying.  These are not values.”

He also said,
“We are a nation that is unenlightened because of religion.  I do believe that.  I think religion stops people from thinking, I think it justified crazies.” 

Like Bill Maher, the DCCC and Mayor de Blasio (aka the most progressive Mayor of New York City has ever seen) want this seat because it would make their lives much easier – let’s face it, I am the only one standing between them and a liberal take over of NYC.

I am the only Republican Congressman who represents a borough within New York City, a city of 8.5 million people.  THEY WANT ME GONE!

They want to unseat me because I’m an outspoken, conservative Republican. 

They despise the fact that I am a United States Marine combat veteran and a former undercover FBI agent and that I continue to fight for the honor of this country.

The reality is the liberal left is destroying this great country.  They don’t share our values.

Help me stop the Liberals from Coming.
