Bill Maher rips NFL ‘segregation’ with 2 national anthems


“Real Time” host Bill Maher blasted the NFL for playing two national anthems at Thursday night’s season kickoff game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.

Maher began the show’s panel discussion Friday night on the subject of education in America and how college campuses and classrooms have become a “social justice factory.”

Teachers are political activists and it’s “pitting students against each other based on the color of their skin.”

“To me, when people say to me sometimes, like, ‘Boy, you really go after the left these days. Why?’ Because you’re embarrassing me,” Maher exclaimed. “That’s why I’m going after the left in a way you never did before. Because you’re inverting things that I- I’m not going to give up on being liberal! This is what these teachers are talking about. You’re taking children and making them hyper-aware of race in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be!”

“I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ which now I hear is called the Black national anthem, the HBO host continued. “Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem. I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have … many of them have different graduation ceremonies for Black and White, separate dorms — this is what I mean! Segregation! You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name.”

[Why don’t we get rid of all the Martin Luther King Jr. statues and eliminate his holiday since he means nothing to the Left any longer? They certainly don’t follow him.]
