Yeah the flu got straight bushed this season lol
Maher isn’t a centrist Dem. He is a libertarian and has said it over the years.
Who keeps upping this thread?
Somebody tell Frank Bruni that the current polling on reparations is where gay marriage was polling 25 years ago.
its not, but I get your point
Charlegman is the wrong person in that space to be making the argument for reparations. That is why the segment went the way it did. Maher has all these politicians and national writers to discuss a variety of topics. For reparations he got a vj?
15 months of what? There is zero chance that you were masking up or facing any sort of lockdown for even 12 months.
It is. Take a look at Gallup polling. People forget how taboo gay marriage was even during the Clinton era.
1996 - 27% support, 68% oppose gay marriage
As Redress for Slavery, Americans Oppose Cash Reparations
2019 - 29% support, 67% oppose reparations
Can’t even hate watch this shyt
After watching a few older episodes of his show I have to say - he's been bad for at least the last 15-16 years - the only thing he had was the Bush years being so incredibly awful
any one that watch his 1st show would know this
the bush years gave him his best material
The bush years gave him material because Republicans weren't afraid to go on his show. They were evil but weren't quite off the deep end yet, so if you got the right panel you could have a really entertaining show. Now the party is off the deep end, no sane republican, if any still exist, will go on the show because there is no way to defend the parties actions. The few Republicans you get are wack jobs that 15 years ago wouldn't have a voice anywhere. How the show is a circle jerk about cancel culture
It is true that Maher started out as a libertarian and sure sounds like one now. But there was a stretch where he was very supportive of a more socialist economic agenda. I can't remember the exact time frame, but I think it overlapped mostly with the Obama years.
I think Maher really took a strong turn towards his current cranky self after he was scheduled to speak at Berkeley's commencement and students protested it mostly on the basis of comments that they perceived to be Islamophobic. Since then, he's basically been on a non-stop "fukk millennials/zoomers" tip.
I just want to note that he is 100% an Islamophobe. And his inability to see his own blind spots is why we’ve all stopped fukking with him.
WHen was this? I watched this show for damn near 10 years, and never saw that.
He is an Islamaphone and a zionist, despite being a proud athiest.
