Comedian Bill Maher claims some liberals are guilty of not admitting the progress that the United States has made on race and gender relations.
“If you think America is more racist now than ever, more sexist than before women could vote, and more homophobic than when blow jobs were a felony, you have #Progressophobia, and you should adjust your mask because it is covering your eyes,” Maher said in a tweet containing a video segment from Friday’s episode of his HBO show Real Time.
In the video, Maher echoed the same line and said the country is leaps and bounds further than it was just decades ago: becoming more accepting of the gay and transgender community, more tolerant of recreational drug use, and more welcoming of interracial relations.
“The chant from gay protesters used to be, ‘We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it,'” Maher said. “Well, we did. This is Pride Month, and it’s not even a big deal anymore.”
“Not too long ago, I knew people who went to prison for growing pot,” Maher said, recognizing several states that have legalized marijuana use.
“An overwhelming majority of Americans now say they want to live in a multiracial neighborhood,” he said.
“And yet, there is a recurrent theme on the far Left that things have never been worse,” Maher said.
The host then quoted actor and comedian Kevin Hart, who previously said America was dominated by white culture: “You’re witnessing white power and white privilege at an all-time high.”
“Seeing clearly is necessary for actually fixing problems,” Maher retorted.
