Maher: Occupy Protesters Are "Douchebags" Who Need To "Get A Job"

Bill Maher turned his ire toward the "Occupy" protests that took place across the country in the fall and continue in some locations today. Maher says he find himself "almost in agreement with Newt Gingrich" and tells them to "get a job."

Maher said they initially did a good job, but now the "movement" is "just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution." Read what he said below.

"Similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything for too long people do get pissed off," Bill Maher said about the "Occupy" protests on his HBO program "Real Time."

"As I watch them on the news now, I find myself almost in agreement with Newt Gingrich, like, 'You know what, get a job.' Only because the people who originally started it, I think they went home. Now it's just these anarchists stragglers. And this is the problem when your movement involves sleeping over in the park. You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway. And I think this is where we are with the 'Occupy movement'" Maher said on this week's broadcast.

"They did a great job of bringing up the issue of income inequality to the floor, but now it's just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution," he also said to his panel.
