Bill Maher reminds Democrats why they’re going to keep losing

Hot Air  "Maher’s work and generally only catch it in news clips if I see it at all. Still, you do have to respect the guy for sticking up for his own positions and being willing to call out not only Islamic extremism but his own liberal allies when he feels they’ve gone astray. A small but telling example of this pattern cropped up again this week after it was announced that internet provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos would be the feature guest on his show. This prompted Jeremy Scahill, who had been scheduled to be part of the roundtable, to issue an announcement saying that he would no longer be attending. (Independent Journal Review)"

Jeremy Scahill, another guest who was scheduled to be on the show, immediately backed out: Why I will not appear this week on Real Time with Bill Maher.

. . . "While Scahill asserts that Milo has “ample venues” available to him to get his message out, and may have been true at one point, it is less so now. In fact, universities began canceling scheduled appearances by Yiannopoulos last year..
"According to Entertainment Weekly, Maher issued a response to the cancellation, in which he pointed to Scahill being the problem, not Yiannopoulos:
My comments on Islam have never veered into vitriol,” Maher replied in a statement obtained by EW. “Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill whose views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech. If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.
"This isn't the first time Maher has cautioned fellow liberals about imperiling their future electoral chances. Last year he offered what turned out to be a prescient warning about their inability to call “Islamic terrorism” what it is." . . .
