In a surprisingly refreshing rant on his HBO show on Friday, Bill Maher took aim at those on the left who take political correctness to the extreme. Maher went so far as to call those who are too easily offended “political correctness Nazis.”
“Bill Maher… is a weird subject because sometimes he’s very right. I mean, not right wing, but he’s correct in his thinking. He’s logical. He can make sense,” Pat said on radio this morning. “Other times, he says the most outrageous butt-headed things you’ve ever heard in your life, and it’s kind of unimaginable.
“But he kind of sounded off on this banning of words… [and] when progressives eat their own, it’s just fun.”
Speaking in reference to his own rocky history with the PC police, Maher explained that the “political correctness Nazis hound me to censor every joke and apologize for every single slight and when I have to learn how to pronounce words like ‘chai’ and ‘quinoa’ — I just want to shove a head of kale up their [expletive].”
Furthermore, Maher fails to see the expediency of Facebook’s decision to offer more than 50 custom gender options to its users.
“I also, for example, think it’s ridiculous that Facebook has now decided that we have to choose, in our profile, from 56 genders, including transgender, cisgender and, of course, brucegender,” Maher said.
Such options include ‘agender,’ ‘gender fluid,’ ‘transsexual,’ ‘transsexual male,’ ‘transsexual female,’ ‘transsexual person,’ and the all-encompassing ‘other’ to name a few.
“Fluid. Does that mean one day you’re a boy and the next you’re a girl,” Pat asked. “Because that is the actual definition of fluid, if I’m not mistaken.”
Ultimately, Maher believes that the onslaught of political correctness in every aspect one’s life is a detriment to Democrats.
“So I get it, liberals can be obnoxious,” Maher admitted. “And that’s why lots of Americans say, ‘We don’t want politicians nagging about what we can name our football team, or how big our soda can be, what we can eat, or who we’ve offended. We have wives for that.’”
“That’s amazing,” Stu concluded. “And this comes from the Bill Maher rant on Politically Incorrect or Real Time. I guess it is now on HBO. You see how often I watch that show.”
