Bill Maher cut to the chase Friday night … calling out intolerance Americans now have for those with whom they disagree … intolerance that has led us to stop mingling with anyone who is not like-minded.

The “Real Time” host stated what is simply true: Many Americans will only agree with people who share their views, and they can’t believe that any right-thinking person would embrace opinions that are different from theirs.

Bill goes down the road with an example — Arizona’s Republican Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem, who not only believes Trump won the 2020 election, he “can’t find anyone who voted for Joe Biden.” Dude is living in a Trump bubble and doesn’t associate with anyone else. He doesn’t know anyone who voted for Biden.

Maher then swings to his left and states that the same holds true there. We won’t spoil his hilarious example. He invited someone to his party, but that person declined because another guest supported Trump and said he/she wouldn’t “breathe same air” as a Trumper. Bill said that there is a word for such people — ASSHOLES!

The point is that we have become so tribal… both sides have fundamentally differing realities, and this opens the door to hatred and contempt.

As he stated earlier in the show: “Watching the news, especially cable news, has become dangerous… The “realities” presented on both sides are so distorted that it’s difficult for viewers to believe that any rational person can have opposing beliefs.

People can draw a line, cutting out homophobes, racists, and xenophobes. However, contrarians are often automatically lumped in those buckets.
