Bill Maher: It’s not that I’ve gotten old. It’s that your ideas are stupid

So I want to put to you, because I know you like, you know, listening to disagreement, people who say to me, and there are many who say I love Bill Maher, but he, he has matured too much. He's become cranky. He's become crotchety. He's become one of those old guys who says the kids are crazy. I it was better in my day. What do you say to them? They're wrong. I mean, they're wrong and the kids are crazy. It's interesting. They have this idea. The younger generation, maybe every generation does that. Just because something is new makes it better. And that's not true. New is not synonymous with better. But you're sounding like an old fashioned conservative. OK, I heard a couple of people say, or maybe they wrote it online, that well, I'm a hypocrite because you were for the demonstrators in 19, 68 or whatever it was when they were demonstrating against the Vietnam War. Yeah, that was very different. First of all, the students weren't against their own. These students were threatening other students. That didn't happen in the Vietnam War. And being against the Vietnam War was made sense. It was a war that we probably should not have been in. But but this is this is demonstrating and and protesting for a terrorist group. Well, to be fair, a lot of students aren't doing that. There are a lot of outside, you know, people have mixed together what students are doing, what outside protesters are doing. But let me ask you a broader question, which is a lot of people will say, look, this is how you get changed. You have you, it's noisy. Some people do the say the wrong thing. Some people go too far. But the whole tradition of this kind of expansion of rights, it's messy, it's chaotic, you know? Yeah, we're we're you know, there's probably a bunch of excess as they were probably was in the 60s. There was the Black Panthers and the weatherman and things like that. But they've, they think of you as somebody who was, you know, you were OK with all that. But you've you've turned. I haven't turned. Yes. People have said to me, you make fun of the left more than you're used to. And guilty I have. Because the left has changed now. The right has changed also. And even worse, I mean, the right doesn't believe in democracy anymore. I mean, they've thrown their lot in with the sociopath named Donald Trump, who only thinks elections count when we win. OK, well, that's worse. But it's not like the left hasn't changed also. So I'm going to call it out wherever I see it. I mean, there are things that have to do with, you know, gender and race and free speech and just ideas about, you know, you can be healthy at any weight. And gender is always a social construct. And maybe we should give communism another try. And maybe we should get rid of capitalism in the Border Patrol and let's tear down statues of Lincoln and get rid of the police. Just, you know, no, it's not that I've gotten old. It's that your ideas are stupid, OK? And I sense is still common sense. Yet common sense is common sense. It I'm gonna call it out wherever it is on the spectrum.
