‘Keep Marching For Hamas, Kids’: Bill Maher Says Campus Protesters Just Don’t Get It

Comedian and HBO host Bill Maher laid into the anti-Israel protesters on college campuses like Columbia University — where students vandalized and took over a campus building on Tuesday — and said that as they keep “marching for Hamas,” they also keep missing the point with regard to what they should be protesting.

During a conversation with UFC president Dana White on his “Club Random” podcast, Maher noted that there were plenty of issues in the Middle East that might be far more worthy of protest than Israel.


“The Afghanistan culture — part of it — is we found out when we invaded and stayed there for 20 years. There are rich men who have, like, 10-year-old boys. That’s just a thing — like — you can get when you’re a rich guy; so keep marching for Hamas, kids. You really got your liberal eyes on the right prize here,” he said.

Maher went on to note that some of the protesters had even cheered on Iran when the world’s number one state sponsor of terror fired directly on Israel.

“Now they’re cheering for Iran because they just fired all the missiles at Israel. So Iran is the good guys? You mean, the Ayatollah, the f***ing black-hearted, black-eyed, bomb-planting dude that we — captured our people?” Maher continued.

Maher concluded by saying that the protesters were doing little to help Democrats – especially as the 2024 presidential election loomed closer — because they were likely to repel centrists


“I keep trying to tell the Left this every week. Like — the more you do crazy sh**, the more you push the people in the middle to the Right,” Maher explained.

Maher then asked White what his politics were when he was younger, and the UFC president said that he would have called himself “very liberal.”

When asked whether he changed or the parties changed, White’s response was simple: “It’s a little bit of both … I’m for common sense.”
