Bill Maher Dishes Out Some More Truths And Libs Are Furious
The left is actively fighting to take down free speech and nothing proves that more than the attack on Dave Chapelle. The real-talk comedian has a special way of angering extremists and he really lit some wigs on fire when he criticized the trans movement during his Netflix special. They declared him a bigot and jumped to cancel him completely.
Their overblown outrage proves they didn't actually watch Chappelle's special because the comedian criticized the moment but clarified that he has nothing against the trans community. He just disagrees with some things they are doing. Chapelle has criticized the actions of many moments in the past, including the feminist movement. This was no differnt.
HBO's 'Real Time' host Bill Maher offered liberals this little pearl of information: “You’re not automatically right if you’re trans'. Maher was joined by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and linguist John McWhorter.
The show opened with Maher explaining that he also has nothing against trans people. He also pointed out the many protections and rights the community currently has.
“That’s what bothers me to begin with, that there is … what I call the one true opinion … and there isn’t,” Maher said. “There isn’t just one true opinion. I’m a free-speech guy. Now, I’m team Dave, but that doesn’t mean I’m anti-trans. We can have two thoughts in our head at the same time.”
Maher then addressed the issue of watering down language: “Words have meaning — but not anymore. And when I hear ‘transphobic,’ phobic has a meaning, fear. I’m not transphobic if I merely disagree with you; it’s not hate.”
The host then read a comment from an activist who claimed that “this is not an argument with two sides,” but “an argument with trans people who want to be alive, and people who don’t want us to be.”
“Well, that’s just ridiculous. Dave Chappelle does not want you to not be alive,” Maher stated. “You’re not automatically right if you’re trans. You’re completely equal; you’re just not automatically right.”
Regarding this kind of activist thinking, John McWhorter later added:
"These people — people who do this about race, who do this about trans, who do this about anything — think of themselves as ahead of the curve; they think of themselves as indicating some sort of higher wisdom. Really, it’s a very simple way of looking at things. People like this, no matter what they’re arguing on the basis of, are telling us, the way you would have thought of it when you were five years old is the proper way to think of it. That doesn’t work; never will.
…to get back to this simplicity idea … Dave Chappelle is a comedian, there [are] layers of wit and irony and attitude going on, and instead, we’re told to just read it as if it was “The Three Bears,” and we’re being told that that’s sophisticated, when really, that means that these people who are, you know, so annoyed that anybody says some words or expresses some ideas are saying that most of America aren’t sophisticated…"
A movement doesn't negate others' right to free speech. Or at least it shouldn't. In today's world, we have small groups of extremists trying to dictate the lives of other and a White House that supports them. To hell the majority under Biden.
