“The party of FDR and JFK has become the party of LOL and WTF. If people are laughing at you there is probably a good reason”. I probably agree with 10% of Maher’s positions, and for the better part of the past five years he was blinded by his hatred for Trump. But he is often honest. He has long called out Muslim culture for its highly illiberal tendencies, and its enablers on the left. Now he is attacking crazy wokeness, pregnant man emoji’s (yes, a real thing) and the kind of insane over-regulation that leads to California requiring big-box retailers to have a gender-neutral toy aisle.
I think there is much more at play here, but he does have a point.
This backs up his claim:
80% of the American population believes PC-culture is a problem. That is heartening and a problem for the American left. The rot that is social media and traditional media has given leftist crazies a much bigger bullhorn than they deserve.
