Bill Maher Blasts MSNBC For Calling Youngkin’s Virginia Victory ‘White Ignorance’

On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher slammed left-wing criticism of Republican Glenn Youngkin’s recent gubernatorial race victory over Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, saying that progressives are contradicting traditional liberal beliefs and endorsing the idea of “resegregation,” a belief that “you’re either a racist or you don’t know you’re a racist.”

Maher made his comments on his program “Real Time” on Friday evening.

Criticizing both sides of the political aisle, Maher said that he doesn’t believe “we are being led in the right direction by either side.”

Bill Maher’s guest, progressive radio host Tavis Smiley, replied with, “When you say ‘we’ … what ‘we’ are you talking about? Black folk and Brown people ain’t doing nothing to the larger White community. So when you say ‘we,’ you’re acting as if, you sound as if…” 

“I said we the country!” Maher interjected.

Smiley responded with his original line of questioning, “But who’s the ‘we’? Some of us are not engaged in that nonsense or activity.”

Later Maher focused on how the contemporary left is betraying liberal principles by viewing everything through a racial lens, including the recent Virginia gubernatorial election. 

Maher said, “After the governor of Virginia — the new governor won, MSNBC headline was, ‘Glenn Youngkin’s Victory Proves White Ignorance is a Powerful Weapon.”

“I don’t think that helps,” Maher said. “I don’t think some of this — I’m an old-school liberal. I believe in a colorblind society. That’s not where woke is, okay.”

“There’s a lot of resegregation going on,” Bill Maher claimed. “There’s a lot of you’re either a racist or you don’t know you’re a racist.”
