It’s a testament to how God awful stupid American political discourse is these days that the MAGA New Right continues to spooge its pants over the idea that Bill Maher isn’t a liberal anymore.
This is a prime example of confirmation basis if ever there was one. Maher was never a liberal in the traditional sense and it’s a tell that MAGA New Right cocksuckers would get SOOOO FUCKING EXCITED that Maher might stray from the liberal media narrative.
Get a grip, assholes.
It’s not a sign that The Truth is With Fascism that someone like Maher might question the liberal media narrative. He’s always been a media infant terrible and pretty much a libertarian. He’s not liberal and never has been. The MAGA New Right confuses someone with media legitimacy as someone, by definition, being liberal.
It’s all very dumb. But, then, America is very dumb right now.
In a sense, all of this is a very dark commentary on how fucked up America is right now. The Right is chomping at the bit for any “proof” that anyone on the other side is losing faith so they can point to it as a sign that liberalism is corrupt and collapsing in on itself.
(By the way — fuck you, MAGA.)
The great irony of all of this is, of course, that the MAGA New Right is ascendant. They’re getting everything they want politically and through the courts to the point that the issue of Bill Maher being liberal or not is silly.
