Invoice Maher reduce to the chase Friday evening … calling out intolerance People now have for these with whom they disagree … intolerance that has led us to cease mingling with anybody who is just not like-minded.
The “Actual Time” host stated what’s merely true … a number of People will solely f**okay with individuals whose views align with theirs, and so they simply cannot imagine any right-thinking individual might embrace opinions opposite to theirs.
Invoice goes down the highway with an instance — Arizona’s Republican Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem, who not solely believes Trump gained the 2020 election, he “cannot discover anybody who voted for Joe Biden.” In different phrases, dude’s dwelling in a Trump bubble, and doesn’t affiliate with anybody outdoors of it. He actually is aware of nobody who voted for Biden.
In fact, Maher then swings to the left, and says the identical is true there. His instance is hilarious, so we’ll spoil it. He invited somebody to a celebration at his home and that individual declined the invite as a result of one other visitor supported Trump, saying he/she would not “breathe the identical air” with a Trumper. Invoice stated there is a phrase for such individuals — ASSHOLES!!!
The purpose being … we have now turn out to be so tribal … each side have basically totally different realities, and that paves the best way for hatred and contempt.
As he stated earlier within the present, even watching the information — particularly cable information — has turn out to be downright harmful … the “realities” portrayed on each side are so skewed, it is not possible for viewers to imagine any sane individual can have an opposing perception.
That isn’t to say individuals cannot draw a line — chopping out racists, homophobes, xenophobes from their lives, however contrarians typically routinely get lumped into these buckets.
