Left-wing comedian Bill Maher has tried to warn Democrats that unless they cut it out with the “woke crap,” they’ll continue getting trounced in future elections.
And yes, though Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has prematurely been declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election, the fact remains that Democrats lost at least 10 seats in the House and flipped multiple state legislatures.
Speaking on HBO’s “Real Time” this Friday, Maher expressed great joy over President Donald Trump — whom he described as “280 pounds of ugly fat” — supposedly losing the election, but took aim at Democrats for losing so much else.
“Democrats must figure out why so many voters still say to them you’re good enough, you’re smart enough, but doggonit, we just don’t like you,” his monologue began.
“Democrats were supposed to flip the Senate and didn’t, supposed to flip state legislatures, not a one. And they lost seats in the House. In a year that was so much about making people aware of racism, their share of minority votes went down.”
Conversely, the president’s share of minority votes went up.
Trump won Native Americans, Alaskans, Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders outright.
He 2X’d with LGBT and black women.
He gained in every demographic but white men and his biggest losses were with white college educated men.

“The message to Democrats from so much of the country seems to be we don’t like Trump, but we still can’t bring ourselves to vote for you,” Maher added.
“If Crackerjack was made of popcorn and dog shit, and half the people threw out the popcorn, popcorn should want to know why. Liberals can either write off half the country as irredeemable or they can ask what is it about a D next to a candidate’s name that makes it so toxic.”
The problem is that many leftists have an innate, almost pathological intolerance toward dissenting ideas and opinions. This intolerance prevents them from even considering why 73 million Americans voted for the #OrangeMan. As far as they’re concerned, those who voted for the president must all be white supremacists, no questions asked.
Continuing his screed, Maher urged Democrats to listen to more moderate voices like Rep. Ruben Gallego, who’s recommended they stop using “woke” terms like “Latinx”; Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who’s warned that they’ll be “torn apart” if they don’t change; and Rep. James Clyburn, who’s said that talking about “defunding the police” and propping up socialism is killing the party.

He continued, “Pennsylvania Democrat Conor Lamb says Democrat rhetoric needs to be dialed back. It needs to be rooted in common sense. Thank you, thank you. There in my opinion is the crux of the problem. Democrats too often don’t come across as having common sense to a huge swath of Americans.”
Part of the problem, he added, is that a few rotten apples have the power to spoil the whole barrel. Of course, the Democrat Party has far more than just a “few” rotten apples, and these rotten apples in the party have turned it into “the party of every hypersensitive social justice warrior woke story in the news.”
As an example, he spoke of how actress Anne Hathaway recently apologized for playing a three-fingered witch because it offended three-fingered people (#TrueStory).
“I can do this all day, cite stories big and small that are endlessly on people’s newsfeeds that add up to a constant drip drip drip of ‘these people are nuts.’ That’s what people vote on, not policy,” Maher continued.
By “these people,” he of course meant Democrats.
“Democrats kept saying in the campaign, ‘You can’t possibly think Trump is preferable to what we’re selling,’ and many voters keep saying, ‘Yes we can.’ In fact, our primary reason voting for him is to create a bulwark against you because your side thinks silence is violence and looting is not,” he added.
“Because you’re the party of chasing speakers off college campuses and making everyone walk on eggshells and replacing ‘Let’s not see color,’ with ‘Let’s see it always and everywhere’ — formally the position of the Klu Klux Klan. It would be so easy to win elections if we would drop this shit!”
Listen to the full monologue below:
Are Democrats and their base of activists listening, though?
As of Sunday, Maher’s YT video had 32,000 likes and only 2,300 likes. The 8,000+ comments meanwhile contained plenty of frustration from disillusioned Democrats.
“What a great closing argument . As a proud democrat, I can’t stand what’s happening on the extreme left,” one Democrat wrote.
The reaction on Twitter was somewhat similar, except the opposition from the “woke” far-left was more pronounced and easier to spot.
Here’s a sample:
I’m sorry, but aren’t you the same guy who fetishizes Black women, including “Superhead,” and now you don’t want to see color? That’s too much for you? That’s rich.
Have a blessed weekend.

Does anyone even still listen to this guy?

What you see is a sad old man fading away from relevance, same as Trump.

Really wish this narcissistic, blow-hard, fake-liberal-in-libertarian’s clothing would get cancelled again. Maybe someone younger with a fresh outlook could take over his spot.

See that? Now even he too is a bigot …
The question Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Squad leader Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez have to answer now is which group would they like to cater to — the sane one that lives in reality, or the insane one that’s made its home on Twitter?
