Longtime liberal hero Bill Maher continues to resist the left’s encroachment of radical extremism, this time skewering the NFL for its ‘pro-segregation’ decision to play two National Anthems before games; one for Americans, and one for black Americans.
The Real Time host sounded open to adopting a new national anthem that better reflects the times, but said the decision to play two anthems, one that openly caters to a specific color of skin, undermines the achievements of real anti-segregationists.
“There is not a Black America, and a white America, and Latino America, an Asian American, there’s a United States of America,” Maher said, quoting Barack Obama.
For the NFL to play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which has somehow become the de facto “black” national anthem (by the way, was there a secret election that took place or something? Surely not all African-Americans feel comfortable with this buffoonery), is a slap in the face to MLK and others who fought for real change just decades ago, Maher argued.
The host also lamented the current state of education, which openly promotes segregated dorms, segregated study spaces, and segregated graduation ceremonies, all in the name of promoting racial equity, or something. Just this past week a pair of Arizona State extremists urged two white students out of their study space, citing a university “safe space” segregation rule.
America was built during times that allowed much harsher treatment of other human beings, but still, it was always a nation that was framed with the intent of appreciating and celebrating diversity. When that diversity suddenly requires “separate but equal” spaces in order to harmoniously survive, the very fabric of America is torn, even if progressives see the separation as a ‘win.’
Maher has to understand how his longtime rhetoric contributed to this overwrought madness, and kudos to him for finally taking a stand against the insanity, even if he, himself, helped propagate it in the first place.
