While there is no shortage of issues conservatives disagree with HBO’s Bill Maher on, the liberal host practically looks like a rabid right-winger compared to how radical the far-left has become.
Whether it be in regards to criticizing Islam, third-wave feminism, the importance of free speech, outrage culture, or political correctness, Maher is often the only voice pushing against his liberal panel. A personal favorite moment on Maher’s show came when he had on Brian Levin, who was serving as director of the “Center for Study of Hate and Extremism” at CSU-San Bernardino. Levin trotted out the usual talking point about Islam being a religion of peace, and then tried to make the terrorism happening from radical Muslims today comparable to bad things Christians did hundreds of years ago.
“I’m sorry,” Maher replied, “but that’s liberal bulls***.”
The man deserves credit for seeing the faults on his own side, and it’s often amusing to see him blast his fellow liberals over them because he agrees with contemporary conservative criticism of the left.
Here’s another perfect example: C.S. Lewis once famously remarked that “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
Doesn’t that accurately describe the left? Liberals today have became the moral busybodies that Lewis warned us about.
And in a monologue on his show last week, Maher agreed with Lewis and put liberals on blast. “People want to drain the swamp, not ban Big Gulps. Yes, I understand you have 1,000 good ideas on how I should live my life, check my privilege, and sort my recycling. And we’ll get to that, but first we need to get some Democrats elected and that’s hard when the movement to childproof the world had made Republicans the party of freedom and Democrats the party of poopers.”
Wow. He really nailed it there.
