He isn't the only one. If you watch his show on HBO, he is definitely a Liberal and supports Liberal values. And he sees how insane the Democratic Party has become with:

-- Vaccine and Mask Mandates
-- Defund the Police / turn a blind eye to crime
-- Over Regulation
-- Secret night flights with planes filled with illegals dropped off all over the US
-- Ridiculous inflation (my grocery bill is on average 30% higher not 7%...true inflation0
-- Major mess in the exit out of Afghanistan
-- Basically telling Putin he can take the Ukraine
-- Justice Sotomayor and her misinformation on COVID

Come on man!

Truth over Facts


“It’s not me who’s changed, it’s the left. A large contingent has gone mental, and I’m willing to call them out.”

Critics (aka idiot leftists like rightwinger and colfax_m have been harsh on Maher as of late, claiming that he never made fun of the left as much as he does now. Maher countered, “Yeah, because they didn’t give me so much to work with. The oath of office I took was to comedy.”



“I travel in every state now, back on the road, and the red states are a joy and the blue states are a pain in the a**. For no reason,” Maher remarked.

“Except the world recognizes natural immunity. We don’t,” Maher argued, “because everything in this country has to go through the pharmaceutical companies. Natural immunity is the best kind of immunity. We shouldn’t fire people who have natural immunity because they don’t get the vaccine. We should hire them. Yes?”


Maher then referred to a poll that shows 41 percent of Democrats believe that unvaccinated people have more than a 50 percent risk of hospitalization when it’s actually “0.89%.” Maher added that it’s “0.01%” for vaccinated individuals.

“So in both cases, the correct answer is less than 1%. They thought it was over 50. How do people, especially of one party, get such a bad idea? Where did that come from?” he wondered.

I think Ronald Reagan said it best when he said, "I didn't leave the democrat party. The democrat party left me."

Same here. The democrat party took a hard left turn in the mid sixties and have never looked
back as the party that espouses socialist rhetoric and policies.

It's the party of Bernie and his "Angels", i.e. AOC and the other fellow travelers.

With two years of nonstop fear-mongering that if you get the Covid you are going to die and you'll die if you don' have the vaccine, is it any real wonder that hospitals are overrun (if they are in fact overrun -- not something I believe as there has been not one shred of evidence to support that) so is it any wonder that when a fearful population will run to the hospital at the slightest sniffle from a virus that will hospitalize 2 in every 1000.

Even Bill Maher who is a lefty sees the insanity of many policies promoted by the left.

Maher is an old school liberal, not a progressive (well at least not a hardcore progressive)

He's still a sanctimonious snarky asshole, but if the left is so far left that they have lost him, that's very telling.

For all his wrong opinions, Maher has always been consistently wrong with them. I may not like his views, but I respect his dedication to free speech.

If that was what they were trying to do, then you leftists are complete failures in life and politics.

You don't bring down the price of pharmaceuticals by having the government mandate they are used. What a shitshow of a political party the Democrats have become.

It was interesting to watch him early on in his realization that the left had gone overboard. His audience in some cases didn't know how to react.

You didn't address anything in the OP. If you want to discuss that then start your own thread, Canuck. We don't want to be like Canada.

Meanwhile the right thinks storming the capital is just fucking fine. The left is pretty much where it always was on any issue you care to name but the right is unrecognizable from what it was pre-Obama. You jerks saw that black man in the white house and lost your fucking minds.

Yep. But he is logical. He and I disagree frequently but all agree frequently. Meanwhile idiots on The View find him offensive and they are fucking insane. All five.

Not per the OP. Obviously Maher disagrees as well. If you want a thread about Obama then start that thread don't hijack this one, leftist. This thread is about how far left the Democratic Party has gone and their idiocy regarding COVID-19. Thanks for playing. Dumb Leftist.

Just because you were one of the unbelievably lucky humans that never had to endure a pandemic you think doing anything to fight one is tyranny. The government has always had broad powers to protect public safety. You have every right to be self-absorbed but the government has no duty to make selfish people happy.

Dumbass. I got the virus in March 2020 and donated plasma for 15 mos. My entire family got it. Luckily the survival rate is 99.4% so we are still here! YAY!!!

The OP clearly states that Red States handled this better. Freedoms matter. Not to you as you're a dumb leftist.
