In what could be a watershed moment in turning the tide against the rabid left who are mobilizing to overthrow the government, an unusual critical voice has arisen from within their ranks. None other than Bill Maher is calling out Democrats and their shocktroops over the wave of intolerance and bullying that has been spawned out of the war on Trump.
The fracas begun when liberal muckraker Jeremy Scahill pulled out of a scheduled appearance on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher due to the booking of the widely vilified social critic Milo Yiannopoulos on this week’s show. Scahill – the author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army – has been a frequent guest but rather than engage with Yiannopoulos on the issues chose to snub the show and make a political statement.

The loony left rallied to Scahill’s defense and launched their usual cowardly attacks at Maher in an effort to bully the smarmy liberal prick into appeasing them by jettisoning Milo. To his credit Maher not only stood his ground but punched back and in doing so delivered a message that the left has gone totally insane.
As reported by The Hill “Maher defends booking Yiannopoulos after journalist pulls out of show”:
HBO’s Bill Maher is defending his decision to invite Milo Yiannopoulos on his show after a journalist canceled his appearance over the Breitbart editor and controversial alt-right leader’s presence.
The Intercept co-founder Jeremy Scahill announced he would not appear as planned on “Real Time with Bill Maher” shortly after Yiannopoulos was booked.
“Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill whose views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech,” Maher responded in a statement.
“If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.”
But as Scahill just made clear, the left has no stomach for debate on the actual issues. The would rather resort to economic terrorism as in boycotts and actual terrorism as seen when masked anarchists ransacked the campus at UC Berkeley in order to shut down a Yiannopoulos event.
As the saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day but the left has huge problems if they are on the brink of losing a certified loon like Maher.
