If Bill Maher hasn’t misplaced his card but, he’s about to quickly. It is a card of superiority, a card that claims Maher is one in every of them, a protected group of celebrities and elitist TV hosts. The card shields its carriers from penalties and actuality.
With Donald Trump out of the White House, Bill Maher has had extra time to look within the mirror — not at himself however at fellow liberals like him. Maher tells his viewers weekly that he sees them — they usually embarrass him. Thus, Maher isn’t catering to both aspect lately. Instead, he’s telling the reality, one thing so uncommon you generally wonder if broadcast corporations even permit it anymore. That pursuit of reality led Maher to the NFL’s promotion of the “black national anthem” on Friday.
“I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ which now I hear is called the black national anthem. Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem,” Maher stated on Real Time.
“I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have — many of them have — different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms — this is what I mean! Segregation! You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name.”
The NFL claims it’s attempting to unify Americans. However, selling totally different anthems for followers of sure pores and skin colours is the alternative of unification. Terms equivalent to unity imply nothing to those that use them most.
Moreover, Maher can be right that it gained’t cease right here — that establishments will proceed to separate folks by race, together with commencement ceremonies and grading scales.
America’s main establishments are combating racism by racism. Isn’t that revolutionary?
In some methods, Maher is extra threatening to the Left’s racialization of the nation than Tucker Carlson or Ben Shapiro. Supporters of the Woke Loser Movement don’t watch Carlson or Shapiro — however they nonetheless watch Bill Maher. He reaches the group others who push again can’t. The wealthiest, most depressing, and entitled leftists take note of what Maher says. Enter the hateful Whoopi Goldberg.
On Monday’s episode of The View, a program hemorrhaging viewers, Goldberg bought mad at Maher. She was livid.
“I think because we have gone backwards a good 10, 15 years, we’re having to re-educate people,” Goldberg says. “We’re having to re-educate people about how women want to be talked about, how black people want to be talked about, how Hispanic people want to be talked about, and yeah, it’s a little bit tough. Native-Americans, the Asian folks — these are all things that we — I thought we all worked together and got everybody to the point where, ‘Here’s what you can’t say.’”
Re-educate, huh? What does that imply? And who might be doing the re-educating? Please, let me know.
Goldberg went on to say, “We don’t think rape humor is funny, we don’t think talking about Native Americans in a really despicable way is funny. It’s not funny and we have to re-educate.”
Got that? Because Maher doesn’t need America to have two nationwide anthems, he should be taught rape humor is just not humorous.
Notice Goldberg made a complete of zero stable factors. She went into battle with the key phrases black, ladies, and rape as ammunition. Goldberg didn’t have something of substance so as to add. So she didn’t — she as an alternative hoped nobody would push again as a result of she used the right phrases.
Goldberg has doubtless been ready to assault Maher for months after MSNBC turned on him when it known as him an “angry white man.” Angry white males are the worst of the worst, they inform us. With that phrase, MSNBC despatched a sign: Maher is now a goal, go get him. That’s very true when what he exposes pandering causes like “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
