Kind of like the cops targeting speeders and then giving tickets to those speeders who then complain about being ticketed for speeding despite "not really going that fast."

Megyn and Maher also had a group cry over Don Lemon amd Rachel Maddow, because they are both so effing jealous of anyone with a show that people actually watch. Kelly has apparently made it her mission to dissipate any sympathy for her ill treatment by Fox executives, and is way ahead of schedule.

I can't hate watch Bill Maher without yelling at my TV anymore.

ah yes 'cancel culture',

I PISSED ON MY BOSSES CAR AND HE CANCELLED MY JOB.  WHAT IS WITH THIS CANCEL CULTURE.

That's all it ever really amounts to.

When I think I can't get more in love with AOC, I read stuff like this and she proves me wrong.

His "new rules" rant about Gina Carano was throw-a-shoe-at-the-TV hot garbage. He's doing exactly what the GQP has perfected: drawing false equivalence, misinformation, and ingorance of context.
 
2021-02-27 4:43:45 PM  
Kelly described how the school entered her third grade son into what she called "an experimental trans education program on these 8- and 9-year-old boys. And it wasn't about support. We felt it was about trying to convince them, like, 'Come on over!'"

Oh, man, I'd love to know more about this.  I'm guessing that it was "Hey, we're going to talk about gender identity.", and probably in fairly lose, kid terms, and she's like, "OMG, trans indoctrination!!"

Just a guess though.
 
2021-02-27 4:45:39 PM  
Mask-off racist who tried to convince it it was okay because he aligns with the political left has a public discussion with someone who never had a mask on their racism to take off in the first place, and we're supposed to be surprised at the direction that the discussion took?

It's... kinda the one thing they have in common, politically.  The overt, relatively open racism, I mean.

// If you do/say racist shiat all the time but follow or precede it with "I'm not a racist, but" like Maher does, that doesn't count as the racism being "hidden", sorry.

Magruda: I can't hate watch Bill Maher without yelling at my TV anymore.


Yeah. Years ago I used to agree with him more often than not.  At least he seemed to try and be fairly thoughtful.  Did his "full idiot" switch finally flip like we've seen with so many others?
 
2021-02-27 4:47:08 PM  
I was raised by left libertarians and I sometimes watch his show to be inoculated against the next dumb thing my mom is going to say (my son says I yell 'shut up, mom,' at least 5 times per episode) and I clicked to something else at this confab.

She was cancelled for saying Santa Claus was white and blackface was okay, not for anything else.

No. He's always been the same idiot. The culture has changed.

I been able to even watch when there's a guest I like for years. I think John Waters was a semi-regular guest and I watch everything related to Waters. But not any of Maher's segments.
 
2021-02-27 4:53:58 PM  
People single out Maher, but I think he's really just the "My personal trainer Fabrizio and I are just good friends, honey" poster boy for how Neoliberals are just Boomer muppets for Republicans and Libertarians.
 
2021-02-27 4:55:03 PM  
Colin Kaepernick has a case for actually getting cancelled. He spoke out against police brutality and his employers ostracized him to placate a man that can't even pretend he knows the words to the anthem he supposedly holds dear.

The then-Dixie Chicks have a case for actually cancelled. At an overseas show (their own show, mind you), they said they were against the impending Iraq War, and they were swiftly blacklisted by country radio stations who acted like what they said was a slight against Uncle Sam himself.

In these instances, the people who were actually cancelled were cancelled for speaking out against the political establishments.

White people are getting the pushback they haven't had for 245 years in America. Like the spoiled brat bring told no for once.

And you know what, America is a stupid name. There's North and South America, and we've defined a third Central America. And America is only in one of those, and doesn't occupy the whole thing. Is America what 15% of the Americas and just takes on the name like it's the only one there? Typical American.

We should have stuck with Columbia.

I say we take it back!

It's true. That last time I got pulled over by a cop and said "I know what time it is and that there is no left turn allowed between 4 and 7 PM."  And he came back and handed me a warning and said "I appreciate the honesty."  I didn't know if I would live through it.

Maher and Kelly probably both donated to Trump in both elections and now their frightened about frozen bank accounts and the unbearable hardship of not having everything they want immediately.

Boo hoo, terrorist financiers are mildly nervous, can't you feel their pain?

I know what it wasn't about: indoctrinating kids to become transexual. Because literally no one has ever done that anywhere outside the fevered right wing imagination.
 
2021-02-27 5:09:15 PM  
"That's the push now, is to lean into victimhood," added Kelly- without a hint of self-awareness.
 
2021-02-27 5:10:23 PM  
Megyn Kelly? I am sure there are dozens of people in the us that hang on her every word, but I am not one of them.

Maher likely has Bari Weiss on the schedule as well this year.

"White Privilege" is really just the default state of being for a people that exist in a state among themselves, in essence the default state of a human civilization which is inherently ethnocentric. If a people didn't prioritize themselves over others it would be quickly replaced, and well, looking at Western demographics...

Conservative Evangelical Millennial Cyclist: Is it so farking hard to admit that white people in America have the upper hand and have been abusing and prolonging that?

/I know, I know.


Two things can be true at the same time. Yes, whites have had privilege forever and use it to prolong their grip on that power. And some people, a minority to be sure, abuse the new environment of woke culture to target others who haven't done what they're accused of doing. Rational people need to speak out against both and hold both accountable.

Wealthy white people have had it the worst since the nation's founding.  Everyone knows that.

Bill Maher is no friend of liberals. He got his start on Politically Incorrect, so he was really douchey in the 90s. He has special hatred for trans people, so I wonder if he invited Ann Coulter on his show and reached in between her legs and got left over bait and tackle when he thought he was going to a clam bake. And he has seething hatred of the me too movement. So he obviously has a skeleton or two in that closet as well.

He has assholes like Milo and Jordan Peterson and wastes no time putting Democrats down, no matter what they do.

Cancel culture is just an update of the old "why can't I be an asshole anymore, it's just not fair."

Grow up.

Tell those right wingers that cancel culture simply means "voting with your dollars" and that the "free market has spoken against bigotry".

Honestly, the best way to attack them is use their own rules against them.

I don't know...I think it sounded like a pretty rational conversation. Some things I disagreed with, but overall, it wasn't unreasonable. The article surrounding it came off as a little hostile, right from the start, and really didn't characterize the exchange fairly at all.

I realize most people here didn't bother to watch it though, since everyone's throwing snark about "cancel culture". <hint>they weren't discussing cancel culture</hint>

God, I am so sick and tired of hearing pearl-clutching right-wing parents complain about "critical race theory" in schools.

Listen, you gaslighting motherfarkers.  We see what you're doing there.  Oh, it's not "teaching literal history about how this country has always exploited and mistreated non-whites to a pathological extreme, even to this day", it's somehow a "theory", as if it's a political opinion whether you're being mistreated or not.

Shut the fark up and go back to your bridge club.  Pay what the taxman asks when he comes and be happy the reforms are the peaceful kind that change laws and not the sort that burn your comfy neighborhood to the ground and string your pampered racists-in-training from the streetlights.
