Bill Maher Says Canada a ‘Cautionary Tale’ for ‘Extreme Wokeness’

The election of 2024 is inching ever closer. Both major national political parties and media outlets have worked to generate a heightened fixation on the contest. In the Republican field, the former 45th President Donald Trump has locked up the nomination. Even in the face of four criminal indictments, Trump has maintained strong support in the Republican party. In the Democratic field, President Joe Biden enjoys the advantages of the incumbency and appears to be the party’s nominee. Biden faced only token opposition from Robert Kennedy Jr.. Kennedy, Kennedy is now running independently and has been received generally more favorably by Republican-leaning voters than members of his own party.

In truth, over the past two decades the Democratic party has ceased to be the historic moderate party of the working class and today is a far-left, progressive party supported largely by the wealthy. Voters have taken notice, and in the same time period, the working class has shifted heavily towards the GOP with 64% of congressional districts considered below the average income nationally being held by Republicans. In 2020, many moderate voters voted for Biden in the hopes that he would govern as a centrist, being a force for healing and a figure that would help to reverse political divisions in the country. Now, as Biden has spent the first 2 and a half years of his disastrous term governing from the far left, a CNN poll has found him to carry a paltry 39% approval rating into the fall of 2023. Additionally, 67% of Democrats would prefer a new candidate.

Bill Maher, a longtime liberal TV-host, recently stated that extreme “wokeness” would be a detriment to liberalism and the American nation. Maher made a statement that a nation like Canada is an example of leftist politics going too far. Maher cited the nations higher unemployment rate and soaring median home prices. Maher again stated that he is a liberal.
