Bill Maher Slams Woke Mob For Changing Words Because They Can’t Handle Reality
Bill Maher, the progressive host of HBO’s hit show Real Time, continued his streak of ‘New Rules’ in which he criticizes the woke mob.
This time, Maher said that they need to stop changing words just because they’re too fragile to handle reality the way it is.
He also talked about the crucial eight words that we need to stop redefining. The words are hate, victim, hero, shame, violence, survivor, phobic, and white supremacy.
Here’s some of what Maher said:
“Comedian Hannah Gadsby characterized Dave Chappelle’s controversial Netflix special as hate speech dog-whistling,” Maher said. “Well, dog whistle refers to when someone puts things in code because they’re afraid to come out and say what they really think. That’s what you get from Dave Chappelle? That he’s afraid to say what he really thinks? And it’s not hate speech just because you disagree with it. Nor is it phobic. Phobic comes from the Greek word for something one fears irrationally, like spiders or germs, but now is used as a suffix for anything you just don’t like.”
“Also in the category of, ‘we just don’t like it, so we’re pretending it’s something else,’ is the word ‘violence,’” he added. “Last year, there was a staff mutiny at the CBS drama ‘All Rise’ when some of the writers — I’m sorry, I meant victims — took issue with a scene where two women are in an elevator and a naked man gets on, and they just continue talking calmly. And if you think that’s offensive, you should see how the guy pushed the button. But the writers on this show found the scene objectionable and sent off an email saying, ‘Two women would not commonly continue a conversation with a naked white guy running into the elevator. That is violence.’ No, it’s not. Violence is when it hurts. It usually involves leaving a mark of some kind. Of course, innumerable things can lead to violence, but I’m sorry, you can’t take that word and use it for stuff that’s just scary to you or just verbal, which is something I literally learned in kindergarten. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but … if you don’t know how that one ends, you need to repeat kindergarten.”
