Bill Maher - ‘Not Everything’s About You’

How long until Maher is 'cancelled' for his opinions? He may be a liberal, but you have to admire his courage in speaking out on the insanity that's going on.

From The American Conservative

By Rod Dreher 

Bill Maher’s monologue about LGBT is fantastic. The guy is liberal, and pro-LGBT, but he says we have taken this way too far. Above, he’s pointing out that at the statistical rate that the population is declaring itself L, G, B, or T, we will all be LGBT by mid-century. He’s joking, obviously, but it’s a real thing that the percentage of people in US society claiming LGBT status has doubled every generation. This has never before happened in human history. But one is not permitted by the woke gatekeepers to notice this, except to cheer for it. In the monologue, Maher lambasts the ACLU for surrendering its historical dedication to free speech in order to support suppressing trans-critical speech.

There are some funny lines (e.g., “Maybe childhood makes you sad sometimes, and there are other solutions besides, ‘Hand me the dick saw.'”), but there are some strong, substantive points here — and made in a way that today, given where he lives and the professional world in which he lives, constitutes bravery. For example:

I’m happy for LGBT folks that we now live in an age where they can lead their authentic lives openly. And we should always be mindful of respecting and protecting. But someone needs to say it: Not everything’s about you. And it’s okay to ask questions about something that’s very new and involves children.

Watch the whole thing. It’s only nine minutes long, but something like this, from a Los Angeles liberal like Bill Maher, is worth an infinite number of op-eds and blog posts from cultural conservatives like me:

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
