Liberal Bill Maher Is Right About Cancel Culture and Wokeness
Bill Maher is one of those liberals I can occasionally agree with.
I agree with him on many of the subjects he raises in these videos (they are in this post, below),
except for his swipe in one moment of one of the videos below, where he takes a shot at the border wall –
– the Democrat Biden Administration has been an utter disaster on immigration and a failure at keeping the U.S. border orderly and safe (the Biden administration has also failed to keep illegal aliens safe), which I intend to make a post about in the future.

-Mass Muslim immigration
-Allowing biological men into women’s bathrooms and fitting rooms under transgender laws
