Bill Maher Takes A Stand For Free Speech, Tells Snowflake Students Not To Attend Speeches They Don’t Like

Bill Maher has no tolerance for mentally fragile college students.

The “Real Time with Bill Maher” star addressed the chaos at Stanford on his new episode Friday, and he cut straight to the point.

All hell broke loose when Trump-appointed federal judge Kyle Duncan was invited to speak on campus. You know, that crazy thing we used to celebrate on college campus: hearing different points of view. Instead of listening, students protested and the law school’s dean of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) Tirien Steinbach asked if Duncan speaking was “worth the pain” it was apparently causing, according to Fox News.

Bill Maher tells people to grow up.

Maher, who has become an incredibly important voice in America, wasn’t having any of it. The HBO star made it clear that if you don’t like a speaker on campus, simply don’t go.

“‘Is it worth the pain?’ Is free speech ‘worth the pain?’ And is it really painful? Is it really painful? If you don’t like this guy, don’t go to his lecture,” Maher passionately said in reaction to the situation.

Once again, Bill Maher reminds people he’s one of the very few people on the left willing to call out his own side and police it.

He’s also 100% correct. Speech isn’t painful. Actions can be painful, but speech isn’t. That’s a simply outrageous opinion to have.

Kyle Duncan isn’t some insane person. He’s a federal judge. You may agree with him, or you may disagree with him. However, to freak out because he’s visiting a college campus is nuts. To then claim his words might cause “pain” is downright ludicrous.

There are a million other things to do on Stanford’s campus. If a federal judge upsets you that much, just don’t go. Maher’s point is absolutely correct.

Maher continues to be a critical voice.

This is hardly the first time Bill Maher has been one of the few voices of reason in the room. In fact, this is the norm – not an exception.

He recently tore the woke mob mentality to shreds and compared it to communist dictatorships. Again, Maher was 100% correct.

Props to Maher for continuing to be a voice of reason when so many just give into the woke mind virus.

  1. “Kyle Duncan is some insane person.” Should this be “isn’t”? Also, if any Outkick staffer is reading this, the Tim Brando video clip that is headlined “Outkick 360: Tim Brando, Networks Like ESPN Strolling Out Draft Guru’s During College Basketball Broadcasts Is ‘Screwing With Out Game'” should be “Our.”

  2. Robert, you are absolutely right. Seems like the 50 people they have now hired at Outkick still aren’t enough to watch this sight enough and make important edits, or for that matter, catch the small mistakes before they get posted.
