Maher: Dems Have Become the Party of ‘Moral Panics’ the Way the Right Once Was

Republicans "were the party of speech codes and blacklists and moral panics and demanding some TV show had to go -- well, now that’s us," he says.

Liberal talk show host Bill Maher downloaded on the Democrat Party on Friday, lamenting that it’s become the party of “moral panics.”

During his “new rule” segment on HBO’s “Real Time”, Maher claimed that Democrats have replaced Republicans as “the uptight ones”, while the GOP ignores allegations of sex trafficking by Matt Gaetz (despite no accuser coming forward against him).

“Republicans can’t spend decades chastising liberals for being too permissive about sex and drugs and then be completely silent about Matt Gaetz,” Maher said.

“We need to restore the natural order of things. I don’t want to live in a world where liberals are the uptight ones and conservatives do drugs and get laid.”

“Once upon a time, the right were the ones offended by everything,” Maher continued. “They were the party of speech codes and blacklists and moral panics and demanding some TV show had to go. Well, now that’s us. We’re the fun-suckers now. We suck the fun out of everything: Halloween, the Oscars, childhood, Twitter, comedy.”

“It’s like woke kids on campus decided to be all the worst parts of a Southern Baptist, and that’s wrong. Because it’s cultural appropriation,” he added.

This comes after Maher launched sobering salvos against the Democrat Party and its liberal base in recent weeks over their oppressive cancel culture and excessive “fear porn” regarding COVID-19.


The Democrats new infrastructure bill will plunge Americans further into debt, and on top of that they cancel the National Day of Prayer.
