It’s always worth recognition when a liberal like Bill Maher accidentally stumbles into the realm of logical thought. During the Friday show of HBO’s “Real Time”, Maher had one of those fleeting moments of clarity when he blasted the politically-correct left for their intellectual intolerance.
Maher began by talking about the boycott of Dolce & Gabbana, saying “we joke about everybody here, and that’s something a lot of liberals have forgotten how to do. For folks who take such pride in their love of diversity, liberals increasingly seem to tolerate none in their own ranks…
He added, “really? You can’t sell handbags if you only agree with Elton John almost all the time? In Syria, ISIS is throwing gay people off buildings, maybe there are bigger battles to fight.”
Maher then stated that he believed the crazies on the right are worse, than the crazies on the left, which is “all the more reason not to drive people into their arms with crazy political correctness. For example, the Economist, last week drew the wrath of the liberal website Media Matters, who said that their jalapeno flag cover was ‘[the] sort of stereotype that ignores Latinos as a multi-faceted community and relegates them to [a] chili pepper-consuming [constituency].’ Hey, Media Matters, can I say one thing to you? Shut the f*ck up,” a line that drew loud applause from the audience. He continued, “no Hispanic looked at this cover and said ‘I’ve been wronged.’ They looked at it and said ‘hmm, yum, jalapenos.’”
Maher added, “look at this insane headline, ‘College President Forced to Apologize After Saying All Lives Matter.’ You know what happened? A college president sent out an e-mail in support of the protesters in Ferguson, but said ‘all lives matter’ instead of ‘black lives matter,’ and then had to apologize. ‘I’m sorry. I meant black lives. F*ck all lives.’
It is a little unnerving when Maher says something that almost makes sense. Sure, Maher isn’t likely to begin sending donations to conservative super PACs anytime soon, but it is nice to see that he harbors enough intellectual honesty to attack the left’s love of censorship and intolerance.
