Maher Tackles PC ‘Nazis’ on the Left: Yes, ‘Liberals Can Be Obnoxious’

Bill Maher blasted Republicans in his show-ending New Rule Friday, but also had some choice words for the “political correctness Nazis” and other “obnoxious” liberals who give people an excuse to support Republicans in the first place. Maher admitted he has no earthly idea how Republicans could possibly be this popular in this day and age, short of “cheating.”

However, Maher had to admit liberals have made the “cultural resentment” on the right much easier to grasp, with the PC police telling people like him to censor jokes, Facebook providing over 50 genders, atheists suing over crosses, and all the rest of it. Maher admitted “liberals can be obnoxious” and people don’t like political “nagging.”

However, Maher warned that liberal paternalism is no reason to “cut off your nose to spite your face.” He said, “For every liberal with a cause who makes you go ‘Oh, shoot me,’ there’s a conservative with a gun who will.”
