Everything Bill said in that segment was true. The "woke" left in the United States have experienced about as much real oppression and tyranny in their lives as the crazed MAGA right has. Neither side knows what the fuck they're talking about when it comes to living in a real police state.

Except he was comparing apples to oranges. It's a non sequitur unless you are talking about casus belli. Anything else is just the old man cranking out, "get off my lawn" and "In my day we had to go to school uphill both ways in snow up to our ears".

Shove it Bill. He is an out of touch elite who is playing the blame the flavor of the week crowd for our problems and move on.

Right. And he's also personally done more to get Democrats elected both in California and nationally than the entire lynch mob of woke children on Twitter have ever done combined in their multitude of whiners.

That's the real division now, the one between the actual adults and the full-grown baby-bitches who cry until they get their way. Getting the professor fired for informing you of facts you didn't like hearing isn't a heroic act, it's cowardice. Fucking disgusting is what it is.

There is a limited bandwidth in the consciousness of the people who are active in the political process. Grifters use that to then squelch valid counterpoints to their own bad policies. They either blame useful idiots or try to act like nothing is wrong. Meanwhile the store is being robbed wholesale as long as you give the grift a platform and not call it out for what it is.

As long as the masses are cajoled into fighting each other rather than the elites who are making off with everything out the back door nothing will change.

CNN will have back on the likes of Henry Kissinger till the cows come home as long as people like Bill Maher keep blaming the 'woke' for his catastrophes.

I think you need to take a break from all of this if you genuinely believe that Bill Maher is personally responsible for CNN's interview choices. Like, seriously? You hate Maher that much that he's now to blame for what a hack cable network like CNN, the one "news" channel that's more responsible than all the others combined for getting Trump elected due to their grotesque dereliction of journalistic duty in 2016, does in order to get views and clicks? C'mon, that's even less logical than most of what Fiddy used to say around here. 8O

Think your losing the plot here Thanos. I am not seeing the forest thru the trees of Bill Maher. I am citing him as a symptom and as long as he and others like him look to quick and easy fixes of blame games and not seriously looking at those who proposed the policies to begin with and not holding their criminal mismanagement to account.

Donald Rumsfield, Dick Cheney, Bolton and all these Project for the New American Century types that are directly bankrolled by the defense industry are the root cause to this rot. The media, on the same payroll, and now comedians who cover for them are the useful idiots cheering for a cause.

No shit, like this weekend he goes off with right winger licking the flag, thrn immediately goes into a rant about how great America is just like he was one.
WTF somebody in Somailia's perception of America is comes mostly from their delusion that everyone everywhere else wishes deep in their hearts to move there.
Criticizing something that needs improvement is not sedition.

Bill Maher has never once defended the Forever War or nation building in a hellhole like Afghanistan. On Friday's show he openly blamed, once again, the Bush Admin for everything that went wrong from the beginning in Afghanistan (and Iraq too), which he's been doing for years. It's not credible on any level to call Maher a right-winger. Maher's stayed consistent. What's changed over the years is that the current American left has abandoned liberalism far behind it and openly embraced an authoritarianism of their own. Their thought-policing/tone-policing/virtue-signaling is rooted in leftist authoritarianism to the core and has absolutely no foundation in what we've always known as liberalism. It happens all the time, the hardcore left goes as bonkers and radical at the exact same time the hardcore right does the same thing. Maher's only a right-winger to anyone who's so far to the left now that they might as well be a Stalinist, in the same way that you, me, and the majority of CKA members are now "leftists" to some of our departed participants (like Martin, Fiddy, and Bart), those who went so far to the hardcore right & alt-right during the Trump regime that they can't even be called conservatives anymore.

You can label someone like Maher or any of the other comedy/commentators all you want. That doesn't make it their reality, or even actual empirical reality. And it certainly doesn't force them to accept your entirely erroneous judgement about them and force them to alter their thoughts & beliefs to suit you.

Ever wonder why that is? I never accused Maher of being a right-winger. He is an elitist. He panders for cause he has a stake in. To that end he is giving cover to proponent of the 'right' wing (whatever that means anymore). As depending on the time of day and who is in office determines how they support policy. This false virtue signaling of Maher of blaming the woke and the tyranny of the left is a straw man argument. Show me a concrete example of a leader in the left wing supporting this plague of cancel culture. It's a tempest in a teapot meant to detract from serious issues. You want to know what people really give a shit about follow the money and Trillions of it went up in smoke in Afghanistan.

"Wokeness" isn't just a threat to liberalism and democracy in it's own way, it's also a threat to the basic idea of truth, and Bill Maher is 100% correct in calling it out for the bullshit it is. It might not be as openly dangerous as Trumpism but it's still long-term corrosive. Anything that relies on building walls between groups and engages in collective guilt based on racial criteria is by default dangerous and destructive. Anyone saying otherwise, like in trying to whitewash CRT as something "harmless", is either simply not paying any attention or are engaging in implementing a radical agenda of their own.

Every single person, left or right, in the American media constellation is also by default an "elitist" based on having a position of attention and influence. It's neither good or bad, it simply is because that's the way media figures have been and always will be regarded. So why are you condemning Maher for that status and no one else? If you want to do some good by going after elitists then maybe move your aim to people like the editors of The New York Times, who have caused actual real harm to people over the last several years by purging pretty much everyone from the general staff who wasn't "woke" or who might have put entities on the left, like BLM, under a critical examination. Name someone that Bill Maher's gotten fired over a belief or an opinion because right now I can name two people (Andrew Sullivan and Bari Weiss) who got fired from the New York "liberal" media for running afoul of the woke & the correct.
