Despite what you’ve heard, woke and liberal are not synonymous. We may disagree with both ideologies, but one is equivalent to insanity (surely you know which one we’re talking about).
One person who understands this concept is Bill Maher – a non-woke liberal who isn’t really accepted by the right or the left.
Recently he joined Joe Rogan on “The Joe Rogan Experience” to discuss this very subject – a subject Dave Rubin finds “worth repeating.”
“You’re like a ’90s liberal,” Rogan said, “like liberals back when they were more reasonable before they became leftists.”
Now “if you want to be on the team, you’ve got to subscribe to the most fringe ideas,” he continues.
Maher agrees, adding that “liberal is a different animal than woke.”
“You can be woke, with all the nonsense that that now implies,” says Maher, “but don’t say that somehow is an extension of liberalism…because it’s most often actually an undoing of liberalism.”
One of the ideas that separates Maher from the woke crowd is the fact that he has “always believed … in a color-blind society – that the goal is to not see race at all, anywhere, for any reason.”
Unfortunately, leftists “believe race is first and foremost the thing you should always see everywhere,” says Maher.
Rogan agrees, sharing his thoughts on the woke agenda: “I think I understand their idea,” he tells Maher. “The idea is that the society is imbalanced, and so in order to address that imbalance, you’re going to prop up as many minorities as possible, make as many opportunities for minorities as possible, and get it to a position where … white people are the minority … and through that, somehow or another, you’ll achieve equality.”
A solid synopsis from Rogan that sheds light on the warped wokeist philosophy that inequality is remedied by creating more inequality.
“I think the color-blind way is the way to really, truly achieve equality,” says Rogan, “and to truly judge people just on their merits.”
Dave Rubin loves the conversation but feels he must make something clear.
“If you, Bill Maher, and you, Joe Rogan, want to live in that color-blind society, you cannot vote for Democrats.”
