Maher Points Out The Insanity Of The Left And Their Ridiculous Quotas
Bill Maher is no conservative, but recently he has been tearing apart his own over their ridiculous progressive agendas. This time he went after them for their diversity quotas, where people get butthurt whenever there are not enough minorities in a given field. He specifically was calling out the insanity that the left was upset that there were not any afro-Latinx in a musical that had mostly Latino and a few black people.
"I was reading also about Lin-Manuel Miranda this week, he of Hamilton fame, and, you know, he won a Pulitzer Prize for it. He’s got a new musical ‘[In] the Heights,’ which is about Washington Heights. I know that neighborhood, my father parked in it every day of his life, going to New York, coming over from New Jersey, and then taking the subway down to Midtown. And he wrote the music and lyrics. His parents are Puerto Rican, came to this country from Puerto Rico. The book is by someone who’s half Puerto Rican. It got 96% Rotten Tomatoes. People loved it. Great reviews, for which he has apologized profusely. Why? Well, there is Latinx performers, one black lead, but no Afro-Latinx. The committee that makes note of everyone’s skin tone discovered this and then Lin-Manuel Miranda had to say, “I’m truly sorry, I’m learning from the feedback. I thank you for raising it. And I’m listening. I promise to do better in my future projects.”
This is what I was talking about with Nicki — please stop the apologizing. You’re the guy who made the founding fathers black and Hispanic. I don’t think you have to apologize to Twitter, for f*** sake. This is why people hate Democrats. It’s cringey."

"Do I think he really thinks he should apologize? I don’t. He just wants to avoid the news cycle. I don’t blame him. You know, I understand this. But at some point, people are gonna have to stand up to these bullies because that’s what it is. It’s just bullying. It’s I can make you crawl like a dog and I enjoy it. I mean, he’s a Latino, making a Latino movie with a Latino cast. Not good enough. Nothing is ever good enough for these people. They’re like children. We don’t raise our children right, and it’s reflected in the media. No one ever tells their children, “Shut the f*** up, sit down, listen to your elders, stop b***hing.”
Maher is right these progressive Libs need to be told off. These Diversity quotas are ridiculous. Employers should hire who they need based on merit. The most qualified should get the job. As far as film, it should be story-driven and once again based on who gives the best performance and who fits the part. But somehow we have let the Left go unchecked and now they are at the helm forcing their views on all of us.
