Maher: PC Campus Protesters and the Oregon Militia Members Are the Same, ‘Martyrs Without a Cause’

On Friday, HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher suggested politically correct campus protesters are actually the same as the Oregon militia members who took over a federal building, and wondered, “if it is a microaggression, shouldn’t it just make you microangry? Do we have to go to DEFCON 1 for everything in this country?”

Maher, after mocking the militia members, said, “I must tell you that the right wing, by no means, possesses a monopoly on infantile drama queens. Does anybody remember the video last fall, when a Yale college student confronted a professor, because the professor’s wife had written an email suggesting that maybe Yale should chill out a little bit on being the Halloween costume police?”

After playing the video, he stated, “Again, you can’t deny the passion. she is adamant that untouchables must be allowed to vote. Oh, wait, that’s Gandhi, right. This insufferable brat can’t sleep at night because there’s no school policy against the white girl dressing up as Pocahontas. … Which is what these days they call a microaggression, which begs the question, if it is a microaggression, shouldn’t it just make you microangry? Do we have to go to DEFCON 1 for everything in this country? Where’s the perspective anymore? hey, kid, you want to protest outfits that oppress people? why don’t you start with these? [A picture of burkas then appeared on screen next to Maher.] Because saying Yale doesn’t have enough cultural sensitivity is like saying Pier 1 doesn’t have enough wicker. And it’s interesting that this yale student, and this hammerhead in the woods think they’re political opposites, but really they’re the same person. Martyrs without a cause, whipping themselves up into a lather over issues that would better be addressed with Xanax. Because if you don’t feel coddled enough at Yale, or free enough in Oregon, there’s nothing political we can do for you. It’s the government’s job to protect a lot of things, but your feelings ain’t one of them.”
