    Shocking Bill Maher defends parents opposed to critical race theory

    By Brie Stimson | Fox News




    Comedian Bill Maher defended parents who are against critical race theory on Wednesday, saying he doesnít think anyone is against teaching about the history of racism in schools but not that it's the "essence" of America.

    "Thereís something going on in the schools that never went on before," Maher, the host of "Real Time" on HBO, told CNNís Chris Cuomo. "Now Iím not in schools, I have no interaction with children whatsoever, but I do understand this issue because I read accounts from parents, from educators."

    He said when he was a student he learned a little about slavery and racism but it was cursory and he didnít learn it "viscerally" so he thinks teaching an "honest history of racism" would be good, but "thatís different than teaching that racism is the essence of America."

    He said thatís what parents are against, "or involving children who are probably not old enough or sophisticated enough to understand this very complicated issue with a very complicated history."

    Maher argued that critical race theory denies the immense progress that has been made on social issues and said proponents of it were "virtue-signaling."

    He added that he gets criticism from the left and the right, which he sees as him doing something right. "I am for the first time now when Iím on the road playing to a politically mixed audience."

    He called himself an "old-school liberal" who would prefer a colorblind society rather than what he claimed was "wokeism" where people want to see race everywhere.

    Yep, it's almost like he's been keeping all this stuff bottled up until Trump was out of office. Too bad he wasn't more balanced for those 4 years.

    Good for him for calling it out, it's the closest thing to sanity that the liberals have.
