Comedian Bill Maher returned to his popular HBO show following a two-week hiatus after he tested positive for the coronavirus and unloaded on his fellow liberals.
On Friday’s edition of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the host took aim at the progressive left and the media’s refusal to report on Israel in an unbiased manner. They love ignoring the fact that the Jewish state has faced a bombardment from terrorists rockets raining down on civilians.
The host expressed his dismay with the one-sided treatment of Israel, a dishonest and shameful distortion of facts that ignores history and foments hatred. This has resulted in a spike in attacks of Jews on the streets of Joe Biden’s America.
Maher said, “One of the frustrations I had while I was off is that I was watching this war go on in Israel … and it was frustrating to me because there was no one on liberal media to defend Israel, really,”
He continued, “We’ve become this country now that we’re kind of one-sided on this issue. And I’d also like to say off the bat I don’t think kids understand — and when I say kids I mean the younger generations – you can’t learn history from Instagram,” He said, “There’s just not enough space”. This is an obvious jab at social media’s contribution to the dumbing down of America.

Maher turned up the heat on guest panelist Nicholas Kristof who like his paper, has been at the forefront of the blood libel against Jews by spewing terrorist talking points about the killing of children.
After Kristof accused Israel of war crimes, Maher dropped the hammer, “Well Gaza fired 4,000 rockets into Israel, what do you say that Israel should have done instead of what they did?” He asked.
Kristof cited international lawyers in claiming that Israel targeted civilian areas to which the host replied; “But they purposely put the rockets in civilian areas, that’s their strategy”. This lead to stammering by the journalist, who wasn’t going to be allowed to easily wiggle off the hook.
“War is a crime,” said Maher, “It seems like a silly argument when people go to war. I mean there are certain things that are beyond the pale, this is a normal war, people die in war, it’s a horrible thing”. Kristoff then cited “developed laws of war” as he continued to squirm.
“I don’t know how else you respond to.., I mean what if Canada fired 4,000 rockets into America or Mexico which is an even better analogy because we actually did steal the land from Mexico,” Maher continued, “I would submit that Israel did not steal anybody’s land, this is another thing I’ve heard the last couple of weeks, words like occupiers and colonizers and Apartheid which I don’t think people understand the history there,” He said as he listed more of the terrorist talking points often regurgitated by the left.
“The Jews have been in that area of the world since 1200 BC, way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the earth” as he proceeded to give Kristof a history lesson.
Maher then got around to the progressives, “What’s amazing to me is that the progressives think that they’re being progressive by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadids of the world,” referring to the anti-Israel celebrity model. “These influencers. I just want to say, in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that an unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That’s where the progressives are,” He said.
Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Bill Maher at least has the chutzpah to take a stand against the “woke” mob and the anti-Semites that comprise it. Unfortunately, he is a lone voice in the wilderness when it comes to the political left.
