(PatrioticPost.com)- Left-wing comedian and HBO host Bill Maher, who has long been one of the loudest voices among moderate Democrats and liberals, recently gave an interview with Alabama news outlet AL.com about the current state of comedy and the deep political divides in America…and he revealed an Achilles heel for the Democrats.
Maher, who is by no means a conservative, has become increasingly popular among conservatives and non-woke activists in recent years for being one of the only mainstream voices on TV standing up to the woke agenda. He told the newspaper about his upcoming tour that will see him performing in a number of cities throughout the south, and talked about a recent show in Nashville where he was pleased to see the crowd fairly evenly split between conservatives and leftists.
“It was great to see where there were people who don’t agree politically who can get in the same room,” he said.
Maher explained how he heard groans from the right over some jokes, and groans from the left-wing members of the audience over other jokes.
“But basically, everyone laughed together, and we have to get back to that,” he said.
Isn’t it amazing that statements like this, which were once considered totally uncontroversial and normal, now seem almost…profound?
Maher also said that the Democrats, the party that he naturally leaned towards, can’t claim the moral high ground if they are “anti.”
“I feel like that’s the Achilles heel of the left right now…they identify mostly by what they can feel superior to another person for,” he said.
If more Democrats were like Maher, then perhaps the Democrats wouldn’t have nominated Joe Biden as their president in 2020…and the party wouldn’t be busy tearing up American norms and dividing society on every possible issue imaginable.
