Bill Maher rips Democrats' 'hypersensitive woke bulls**t' and 'for writing off half the country as "irredeemable"'
BILL Maher blamed “hypersensitive" and "woke bulls**t” from Democrats for the party’s disappointing election results despite Joe Biden’s presidential win.
Democrat leaders had predicted that the party would be able to flip the Senate and several state legislatures – but instead liberals lost seats in the House.
'”In a year that was so much about making people aware of racism, their share of minority votes went down!' Maher said on his HBO show, Real Time.
He added: “The message to Democrats from so much of the country seems to be, ‘We don't like Trump but we still can't bring ourselves to vote for you.’”
Maher continued with a joke equating Republicans to “dog s**t.”
“If Cracker Jack was made out of popcorn and dog s**t and half the people threw out the popcorn, popcorn should want to know why,” Maher quipped.
The commentator said that liberals can “either write off half the country as irredeemable” or question why being labeled a Democratic makes candidates “toxic.”
Maher praised several Democrat politicians who stood up against woke culture after the election, including Ruben Gallego, Abigail Spanberger and Jim Clyburn.
Gallego had urged his party not to discourage Latino voters by using the term “Latinx” while Spanberger and Jim Clyburn slammed “defund the police” as a turn-off to voters.
Maher continued lambasting Democrats, claiming their lack of “common sense” is the “crux of their problem.”
“Democrats too often don’t come across as having common sense to a huge swath of Americans, and these are people who believe in QAnon,” Maher quipped.
Maher said that Republicans are the party of “don’t wear masks, kids in cages, lock her up.”
“And Democrats are the party of every hypersensitive, social justice warrior, woke bulls**t story in the news,” he said.
The host then slammed Democrats for prioritizing their campaigns around being preferable to Donald Trump.
Maher, speaking as voters, then said: “Our primary purpose for voting for him is to create a bulwark against you. Because your side thinks silence is violence and looting is not.”
He added that Democrats would easily win elections if stopped being the party that “chases speakers off college campuses and making everyone walk on eggshells.”
Maher ended the segment with a video of President Barack Obama telling liberals to get over the idea of being woke.
“This idea of purity and 'never compromise' and you're always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” Obama once said.
Maher then quipped: “Quickly, like before they vote in Georgia.”
The political comedian recently slammed “cancel culture” in an August episode of Real Time.
Maher began his New Rules segment by talking about Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively who publicly apologized for hosting their 2012 wedding at a South Carolina plantation.
Criticism of the whitewashing of racism throughout history dramatically increased this summer, since the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a white cop, leading to society calling for people and places they’re morally opposed to being “cancelled.”
Maher said: “If this is the new rule, it’s going to be hard to go to a lot of places in the South.”
“It was kind of one big plantation, and not just the south. The stock exchange is two blocks from New York’s first slave market,” he added.
