Watch Maher As He Beats Libs To Death With Common Sense LOL
'Real Time' host Bill Maher might be an old-school liberal but he's not a complete idiot and at this point, he might be the only person on the left trying to stop his party from descending into madness. Too bad for him it's just far too late for that.
During this week's episode, Maher bashed liberals for holding figures of the past to today's standards. The phenomenon called presenting was recently published in an essay by American Historical Society President James Sweet. Obviously, liberals canceled that guy and he was forced to issue a public apology.
It was that ridiculous rush to cancel the historian that sparked Maher's outrage.
“Being woke is like a magic moral time machine in which you judge everyone by what you think you would have done in 1066, and you always win,” Maher said, adding that presentism is “just a way to congratulate yourself about being better than George Washington because you have a gay friend and he didn’t.”
“But if he were alive today, he would too, and if you were alive then, you wouldn’t,” Maher added.
He then went over every civilization and race that owned slaves throughout history—Which is practically all of them. "Humans are not good people," he added. Maher said slavery was not simply a racist institution, noting “the capacity for cruelty is a human thing, not a white thing.”
“Everybody who could afford one, had a slave – including people of color,” Maher said. “The way people talk about slavery these days, you’d think it was a uniquely American thing that we invented in 1619. But slavery throughout history has been the rule, not the exception.”
Presentism, Maher said, puts “race, gay, gender, and colonizers” into a wokeness blender as if “the New World was a great big diverse dance club, and the pilgrims were the bridge and tunnel crowd who came in and ruined everything.”
Maher, who has increasingly been tweaking modern progressive liberals, also joked about liberals’ reaction to Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’s decision to send 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
“The migrants, first, they went to Martha’s Vineyard, and then they — today, they sent them to Cape Cod,” Maher said. “Just throw in a stop in Nantucket, and it’s the same cruise I got my parents a few years back.”
Just to highlight the extent of liberal outrage; not only did Sweet apologize but they also forced the American Historical Society to issue a formal apology. It's unsettling to me that both did so just to avoid the left's wrath.
