Bill Maher is every conservative’s favorite leftist. If you’re new around these parts, you may ask why. I’m glad you asked. See, there are few intellectually honest leftists out there. We may not always agree on the issues, but we do appreciate when a leftist is honest about their positions. When it comes to Bill Maher, we can count always count on him for calling out other leftists on their own garbage (see Bill Maher to Liberal, Emory Students: ‘I Want to Dropkick These Kids’… and Bill Maher Warns Clueless Leftists about Dangerous Islamic Culture). But this rant blasting these SJWs for whining about their own whiteness is particularly special.
Yes, he makes some jokes about conservatives here. Put your big boy pants on. You don’t need trigger-warnings. Take this leftist bashing for what it is.
No, this is not safe for work.
“We need to have a talk, because this idea that being white automatically equals lame is getting out of hand. You know who I’m talking about, the kind of person who goes away to some exclusive vacation spot, and comes back and says, ‘It was nice but so many white people.’ The kind of person who watched the Super Bowl halftime show and tweeted some version of ‘Coldplay just made me sad to be white.’ Why? Because they’re super successful at a job you’d give your left nut to do? I know you’re trying to demonstrate to minorities that you’re a sympathetic ally by dumping on your own whiteness, but most minority folks could give a shit. They think it’s ridiculous, you, pretending you’re making a difference when you’re just making yourself feel better. It’s so, white. It reminds me of how, in the ’90’s liberals attacked the ‘Seinfeld’ show because all four characters were white. But I don’t remember any black people caring about it. They just watched ‘Martin’ instead. Cut to 2016, and social justice warriors are doing the same thing with HBO’s ‘Girls.’ All her friends are white. Well, I know a lot of white people too. There’s just so many in this country.”
This is the line that almost killed me.
“Bruce Jenner was a boob, even among Kardashians, but now he has boobs, so she’s Rosa Parks.”
Yes, this whole white privilege thing is stupid. If you were expecting something more poignant there, I’m sorry. But this has gone too far. If we have someone like Maher feeling the urge to tell frequent checkers of the white privilege line to knock it off, stop it with the whiteness bashing, you know we’ve gone too far. Because, as seen in this clip, Bill Maher probably won’t be on the #CruzCrew. He’s far left. When your movement has gone so far off the rails from insanity to committable to-the-rubber-room, it’s time to start checking more than skin color privileges.
As to his comments on transgender bathrooms, it mostly make sense. If you’re a Bill, don’t be Jill…
