Townhall: Bill Maher is a based liberal. Is that even a thing? He ripped The Washington Post for being an adult daycare center for their internal fiasco involving longtime political reporter Dave Weigel retweeting a joke that another writer, Felicia Sonmez, found problematic. The nastiness spilled onto social media. It lasted a week. One retweet caused a week-long meltdown. It eventually cost Sonmez her job as she just wouldn’t shut up about it. Weigel was suspended for a month. It’s a mess. We all know Maher comes off as a conservative when he speaks about free speech, political correctness, and radical Islam, but he’s still the same old liberal from the mid-2000s. It just shows you how insane progressives have become. The mere fact that he’s unafraid to have discussions and have conservative friends makes him alt-right in today’s Democratic Party. With the recent Dobbs ruling from the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade has been overturned. The Left went insane. And while some might see this as an election booster for Democrats—it’s not. Maher agrees and his reasoning is not too hard to pinpoint.
It’s the woke morons. Maher is pro-choice. No shock, but he also sees how the Democrats can blow it. This isn’t the Democratic Party of old who I think would have run circles around the GOP on messaging ten years ago. Now, we have people who think that men can get pregnant. Here’s where things come off the tracks. Women cannot be used in this debate because that might be offensive to the three trans people in the Democratic base. When you muddy the biology, the science, and just facts in general to accommodate people’s fantasyland thinking—expect hilarity to follow and political defeat : more here
