Maher Compares ‘Woke Liberals’ to KKK on Rogan Podcast

September 4, 2023

Saturday on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, liberal comedian Bill Maher told host Rogan that far-left progressives were comparable to the Ku Klux Klan in their fixation on race.

Rogan told the veteran comic that he was like a “90s liberal” because his ideology isn’t as extreme as modern progressives. “You’re like liberals back when they were more reasonable before they became leftists. And now every liberal kind of has to be a leftist,” Rogan said. “If you want to be on the team, you’ve got to subscribe to the most fringe ideas that the team is promoting.”

“You can be woke, with all the nonsense that that now implies, but don’t say that somehow it’s an extension of liberalism. Because it’s most often actually an undoing of liberalism. You can have your points of view and your positions on these things but don’t try and piggyback on what I always believe. I have always believed, as liberals do for example, in a colorblind society,” Maher said.

“That the goal is to not see race at all, anywhere for any reason,” Maher continued. “That’s what liberals always believed all the way through Obama, going back [to] Kennedy, everybody, Martin Luther King. That’s not what the woke believe.”

“They believe race is first and foremost the thing you should always see everywhere, which I find interesting because that used to be the position of the Ku Klux Klan,” Maher said, invoking the White supremacist hate group. “Again, you can have that position, but don’t say that’s a liberal position. You’re doing something very different.”
