Comedian Bill Maher spoke to Megyn Kelly about the pro-Hamas madness on college campuses, and both agreed that the social justice warriors have lost it by sticking up for terrorists.

During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast, Kelly asked the host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” how we got to a place where the Left is defending terrorists and supporting murderers like Hezbollah and Hamas with pro-Palestinian protestors “chanting at Jews that they can’t go to class.”

“If I ever needed a reason or rationale for making the case that the Left has changed, it would be this,” Maher replied. “The fact that they’re now marching for the terrorists, really? The people who see themselves as the most liberal people in the world, the social justice warriors, are standing with some of the most illiberal people in the world.”

“Look kids, I know you’re looking for a cause,” he added. “And that’s admirable, that kids want to have a cause. I got one for you. Women. Women around the world, especially in Muslim majority countries. Hamas? I mean, really, you’re marching for Hamas?” 

The “Real Time” host said “every possible thing that is a left-wing cause they [Hamas] violate, even the people of course under the rule of Hamas hate them. It’s a fascist dictatorship. It’s worse. It’s a fascist dictatorship with a hard Right, religious bent. It’s like the worst of all worlds. And those are your heroes?”

Kelly brought up the recent TikTok trend by some young people praising September 11th terrorist attack mastermind Osama Bin Laden.


“This is one of the big problems with the Left today is they see race in everything,” Maher replied. “As the guy who is trying to, like, be the common sense person in the middle, just speak for the normies, everything, I think to a lot of people, strikes at the way it strikes me as we start with one thing, this idea over here and then we’re all the way on the other side over here.”

“And of course it’s great that we got more impatient with racism in this country; that is the appropriate response … and then it goes all the way to and ‘no one who is a person of color can ever do anything wrong,’” he added.

“That’s how you get, ‘we don’t talk about China,'” Maher continued. “North Korea starves its people. China puts the Uyghurs in concentration camps. The president of Burundi … said we should march the gays into football stadiums and kill them for just being gay … but none of these crimes are coming from white people, so crickets. Really kids, nothing? No marching against any of this?”

In December, Burundi’s President Evariste Ndayishimiye said, “If you want to attract a curse to the country, accept homosexuality.”

“I even think that these people, if we find them in Burundi, it is better to lead them to a stadium and stone them,” the president said. “And that cannot be a sin.”
