I like Bill Maher, and never miss his program, but most of his show was terrible tonight
We are being sucked down the dark hole of fascism...disregard of the
rule of law is rampant...secret police in Portland...violation of
civil liberties...crooked deals for oligarchs...police brutality, all
amid a pandemic with no end in sight, and Bill devotes the bulk of his
show discussing liberals who don't like other liberals who disagree
with them and how those liberals shame the liberals who don't agree
His overly long segment featuring Bari Weiss and Thomas Chatterton
Williams was a marathon of intellectual masturbation that has
absolutely nothing to do with the tyrannical government and its
oppression that we are living through now.
OK, there are some liberal purists who chide others that they perceive
as not pure enough, but please explain why that should be important to
someone whose unemployment benefits may stop at midnight tonight.
Bill, maybe you need another vacation.
It was a bit over long, but they made good points. It's the same thing
that's discussed on here - the far left shames the not quite as far left

Weiss tried making the point that her editor (James Bennet) was fired
because he green lit a controversial editorial by Sen. Tom Cotton - but
that's only HALF the story, isn't it?
Turns out he solicited the piece from Cotton. Turns out the editor was
fired, in part, because HE DIDN'T READ THE EDITORIAL he approved to run.
"Bennet did not read Cotton’s editorial before it was published."
"Last week we saw a significant breakdown in our editing processes, not
the first we’ve experienced in recent years,” said A. G. Sulzberger, the
He didn't do his goddamned job. And, so, he 'stepped down'. Maher has a
good show, but sometimes he lets his own biases get in the way of the
truth. Just look at some of the vaccine crackpots he's had on... Sweet
