I don’t often find myself agreeing with liberal comedian Bill Maher – but it does happen from time to time (usually on the topics of Islam, College, and Political Correctness), and it recently happened again. Maher took a moment out of his show to speak to his fellow liberals and to entreat them to stop with the politically correct insanity that seems to have taken hold of the left in America today.
Maher launched into a brilliant tirade against the seemingly ever-present effort to dehumanize white men simply for being white and male. He mocked the liberal need to hear every white man they encounter apologize for the biological accident of being born both white and male. He even seared the recently crowned sacred cow of transgenderism by implying that conservatives have some reasons to worry about this whole genderless bathroom thing…
I wouldn’t expect this kind of logical discourse to become a regular thing among liberals, but it was nice to see it this once.
(Be forewarned: Bill Maher uses some objectionable language; this clip isn’t safe for everyone.)
Bill Maher: Let me tonight talk to the liberals for a minute. Attention Whole Foods shoppers: Put the kale down, we need to have a talk. Because this idea of being white automatically equals lame is getting out of hand.
You know who I’m talking about, the kind of person who goes who goes away to some exclusive vacation spot and comes back and says, ‘It was nice, but so many white people.’…
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 that, you, pretending to make a difference when you’re just making yourself feel better. It’s so white…
Did you hear that Bernie Sanders said the word ‘ghetto’ last month and had to spend a whole week explaining that he didn’t mean it in a good way. Or a bad way. Or whatever way we’re not allowed to mean it.
The iPhone has Siri in it. They should have a one for white people called ‘Sorry.’
Watch any sitcom, commercial, movie comedy. The go to punch line is always the tight-ass, limp dick, Dockers-wearing, tiny penis, bland-food eating white guy. (Maher makes ‘L’ on head)
White guys can’t jump, they can’t dance, they can’t fuck. Really? Even this guy (Mick Jagger)? He’s 90 and he still does all of them.
And, look, I’m not saying that being a white male doesn’t have its privileges. Of course it does. I’m just saying that constantly crapping on yourself doesn’t fix anything. It’s a perverse form of narcism. The more you hate on your own whiteness, the better person you are.
I hear it all the time: ‘Check your white male privilege.’ Okay, you’re right. I’m very privileged. I checked. Now what? Should I tweet an apology to Kendrick Lamar while I lop off my cock?
I’m sure that would help because Bruce Jenner was a boob even among Kardashians. But now he has boobs so she’s Rosa Parks.
I’m not saying that transgendered isn’t an issue either, or where people go to the bathroom in public doesn’t matter. But, c’mon. It’s easily solved. If you look like a woman, use the women’s room; if you look like a man, use the men’s room. If you’re a bearded dude in a dress, hold it until you get home.
