“When people say to me sometimes, like, ‘Boy, you really go after the left these days. Why?’ Because you're embarrassing me," he says.

HBO late-night host Bill Maher excoriated the NFL on Friday over its decision to play the “black national anthem,” calling efforts like these de facto “segregation.”

The “Real Time With Bill Maher” host blasted the NFL’s 2021 opening game between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with a performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” by Alicia Keys, affectionately known to the left as the black national anthem.

“Maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem,” Maher said.

“I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have…many of them have different graduation ceremonies for Black and white, separate dorms…This is what I mean: segregation.” 

“You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name,” he noted.

Maher also criticized the “social justice factory” that the left has become, which he says is “embarrassing.”

“When people say to me sometimes, like, ‘Boy, you really go after the left these days. Why?’ Because you’re embarrassing me,” Maher explained. “That’s why I’m going after the left in a way you never did before.” 

“I’m not going to give up on being liberal. You’re taking children and making them hyperaware of race in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be,” he added.


Parents and teachers are fed up with the tyranny of Critical Race Theory bigotry and Covid misinformation driving a totalitarian wedge between their chosen profession and the future of America.
