NEW RULES: Bill Maher Goes After The “Lazy Liberalism” of the PC Halloween Costume Police – Video

Bill Maher Halloween

 

On this weeks episode of  HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,”  Maher went on an epic rant during his “New Rules” segment against the faux outrage against “politically incorrect” Halloween costumes.

“The fake outrage people get 364 days a year to hypersensitive about everything, there has to be one day where ‘going too far’ isn’t just OK, it’s celebrated,” Maher said. “Halloween is supposed to be politically incorrect. That’s why we say ‘trick or treat’ instead of ‘placate and coddle.’”

Maher then blasted “lazy liberalism” that sees faux outrage and politically correct cries as accomplishing something. Saying, “There’s 12 geishas in the whole world, and they’re all in Kyoto. they’re never going to find out you dressed like them at the office party in Irvine.”

Maher does on: “Banning a hobo costume doesn’t make the homeless feel better. It makes you feel better. This is the lazy liberalism in which scolding has become a substitute for actually doing something.”

And he’s 100% right.

Starts at  the 2:55 mark.
