Bill Maher, the famous contrarian and host of ‘Real Time with Bill Maher, sounded off on cancel culture during an incredible monologue over the weekend warning of the dangers of cancel culture.
Maher went on to lay into liberals for their embrace of ‘canceling’ people and ruining their lives for the most minor of infractions, warning that if it isn’t stopped there would be no end to the madness.
As Fox News reports:
“Real Time” host Bill Maher closed his show on Friday night by offering a warning to skeptics on the left who don’t buy into the existence of “cancel culture.”
“Liberals need a Stand Your Ground law … for cancel culture.” Maher began the monologue, “so that when the woke mob comes after you for some ridiculous offense, you’ll stand your ground, stop apologizing. Because I can’t keep up with who’s on the s—list.”
Maher also accused Republicans of “trying to appropriate” the term in response to “just comeuppance for actual crimes,” saying their muddying of the water was “unfortunate” because “cancel culture is real, it’s insane, it’s growing exponentially, coming to a neighborhood near you.”…
“Is this really who we want to become? A society of phony, clenched-a—— avatars walking on eggshells, always looking over your shoulder about getting ratted out for something that actually has nothing to do with your character or morals?” Maher asked. “Think about everything you’ve ever texted, emailed, searched for, tweeted, blogged, or said in passing. Or now even just witnessed. ‘Someone had a Confederate flag in their dorm room in 1990 and you didn’t do anything?’ ‘You laughed at a Woody Allen movie?’”
