Bill, you are so close to the bullseye buy you miss the mark ever so slightly. The reason cancel culture is coming for liberals for the most ridiculous offenses is because people like you see canceling any Republican as "just comupence." When they came for the gypsies, I said nothing because I wasn't a gypsy...

What a great twist to turn the blame from liberals to Republicans... if you actually believe it is only or mostly a problem for the left you are insane. Republicans are the ones who are LARGELY getting screwed by cancel culture for inappropriate reasons. Whenever someone is canceled on the left it is MUCH more often just compared to everyone on the right who has been canceled.
Bill, this culture is some people on your side gone loonie tunes.All of us on both sides who have a brain need to get in these clowns faces and call them out.No matter the person. Sport, Hollywood, college and in Washington.Then we can get back to hating each other and accusing each other of being stupid.

I've always considered myself liberal and I cannot stand the cancel culture anymore. Its gone beyond common sense. I've never been called a racist in my life until this year. Why? Because I said I don't like Meghan markle. A woman I didn't even know was biracial until a few months before she got married.

The major problem with cancel culture is the fact that when you get "called out" you are irredeemable. This is due to certain people making I understand apologies and going back to do the same BS that the got called out for the first Time. Beleving this has prompted People on the left, the right, the up, the down to just view it as you are now unsavable and unworthy of anything. I kind of find it both funny and irritating how cancer culture will cancel someone who simply disagrees about something minor but won't cancel someone who is a shown predator. make it make sense.

Appreciated all of it except for the disdain for Republicans like THEY do everything wrong. That is such bull and is getting so disgusting. Republicans are not the ones trying to cancel everyone. On the other hand, they are also not going to support people and companies that promote lunacy and blatant immorality.

When they attacked and shut down two wife women for running a taco stand. That’s when I said F this. The charge for being shut down, cultural appropriation. They claim the women were racist for selling tacos. But the people that got upset about are the real racists.

If you have listened to Bill Maher, If you have listened to Bill Maher, and you agree with him, and you commend him for being a Voice of Reason, and you saw that the audience does not even notice Bill was talking about them, and if you are on the good side, but you STILL BELIEVE that Woody Allen is finally getting his due, then you haven't listened to Bill Maher, and you didn't even notice that he was talking about you.

Sure seems like a lot of commenters have never heard of Bill Maher until now. He's been speaking out against this mindset for decades. He's also had conservatives of all stripes on his shows since the 1990s.

The thing that bothers me is when people get offended for others, even if there was no offense for the people being “targeted”, or the people being talked about didn’t take offense by whatever was said or done. I think these situations make problems that shouldn’t exist and distract us from the real problems at hand, be it social, economical, environmental, etc.

Bill, you are showing signs that you are returning to sanity. Remember, we are living in leftist neo-fascist communist (all of those apply) society and now suddenly I see the point of people calling me pinko east coast liberal because they way things have gone, that is a status symbol these days although not spoken with same words. They don't even know what Nazi is - I was born in Poland close enough to the war to have an idea from knowing what happened in Poland, and not only to Jewish Poles (3 million civilians killed) but also to Catholic Poles (3 million civilians killed). Under the circumstance I cannot go on being for the Democrats (after the experience of only one party in Poland I decided that I shouldn't join any here in the US) because what I am seeing in them is a vast cloud of unknowing, and by that I don't mean the Catholic mystical text (it was before Henry the 8th Bluebeard). As a devoted Buddhist on top of that (talk about mixing things up - that makes me fully American) who experienced negative aspects of communism personally (even though I left Communist Poland at the age of 14) I hate the bloody lies I hear on a daily basis now and which pushed me away from my info source, the NPR. It's not enlightenment, but I have awakened rather than become woke (when you awaken you don't become anything else). So awaken yourself, I understand career issues although I was never very clever with them, but it's really time to wake up. I would like to be your fan again. That cheering that you heard when you made your statements, unless you changed the audience, is a very real response to the crap that has been happening. And by the way, from my point of view the election was fraudulent even if it was legal and Trump would have lost anyway. How so? Fraud doesn't depend on its success. The collusion between big media. other big business, the bloody propaganda media, and the Democratic party should be made into a crime. I still want my vote to count as one, rather than some fraction because of the big players. Wasn't that the point of finance reform years ago and which didn't really work. Regain your integrity because I am sorry, you stopped being independent long time ago. This government is the strangest thing I've seen since I lived in communist Poland. I think you know what is going but have to be careful, but know that if you awaken you have enough power to awaken a lot of people, just don't go woke (pretty funny, huh). I am disappointed that I can't use "woke" in Buddhist context, which is another annoyance. Please awaken to how obvious things happening are (most of them, anyway) and don't fall for the sophistries of the silly crowds. How about inviting Douglas Murray. Remember your stupid comments about Trump not wanting to give up his seat that led to the meme about Trump being the President even at the end of this century. You know that what happened at the Capitol was not an insurrection but stupid, stupid mess unless there were agent provocateurs involved. Nobody comes to insurrection without weapons, for one. Besides, quite frankly, from watching the BLM/Antifa demonstrations with people not being punished by law only encouraged this kind of stupid carelessness which only undermined Trump. Still, I had my old friends and some of my family tell me that the fact that he said "you are special and I love you very much" was a call to revolt. In that case try saying that to your family, because they might take you down from your privileged position as the head of it, you white supremacist beast. I would love to see Douglas Murray get a little nasty with you, Remember Jordan Peterson responding to your call for insurrection (I would call it that, you were talking about taking down Trump). Have you become and ideologue, because I don't understand how a humorist (you are not Mark Twain yet) can be an ideologue, since humor requires freedom of mind as well as of speech. From my own experience I know that eating humble pie once in a while is very good for one's overall health. Yours truly saying, private eyes are watching you (on television) and they know your every move (God, sorry, Buddha, I hated that song when I took it seriously). But cheers to you anyway. I also need to add that your apparent complete commitment to the lefts' ideology looked very much like one version of virtue signaling or perhaps you've become religious, Mr. Religulous.

I voiced my support for free speech for all and my anger for bowing to religious fundamentalism which betrays the very principles that liberalism stands for and my two best friends looked at me like they I’d just said “kill refugees on sight”. They both affirmed their support of cancel culture and claimed that you shouldn’t be allowed to say what you like. When I asked one of them who gets to decide what’s acceptable to say and who the arbiter of decency is, she said “me”. 🤷‍♀️

So when cancel culture comes for conservatives, it’s appropriated and fantastical, but when it comes for liberals, it’s real and we should stand our ground. What? When societies have two different standards for people based on immutable characteristics or belief systems, it usually means that culture is in decline.

I agree, Bill......but you helped create this bullshit. You are not alone, but when the opportunity to destroy Republican politicians by using your celebrity high-horse, you didn’t even hesitate. The cancel pricks will come for you, too. Be ready. Once they get a feeling you are making too much sense and that threatens their new power, you will be done. I pray our society can survive this........but I’m not sure we can.

Addressing a specific point Bill brought up at the end, why exactly is throwing an Antebellum South party inherently bad anyway? So long as they aren't mocking the tragedies of human slavery, which I don't think there is any evidence to show that they were, it's mainly just a dress-up like Scarlet O'Hara party that has much more to do with looking pretty than it has to do with analyzing the historiography of the Old South. Are we really back on this stupid train of policing people's Halloween costumes? Moreover, if we can't have any party whose theme is a culture based on slavery, then we might as hell not have any party, because slavery has existed for pretty much all of human history and still does to this day! The fact that so many Americans live in this bubble that slavery was this one particular institution that happened at one period against one people by another people is fictitious in and of itself. The more we let people take control of our lives, the more they will keep doing it. It won't stop if you don't do anything to stop it. Screw these social authoritarian jagoffs.
