Bill Maher, the liberal comic who sometimes takes on his own side during his HBO show monologues, hit a bulls-eye last Friday by roasting the “woke” Left.
Maher said “woke” history allows progressives to “congratulate yourself about being better than George Washington because you have a gay friend, and he didn’t. But if he was alive today, he would, too. And if you were alive then, you wouldn’t.”
He then noted a Hollywood movie called the Aeronauts about the scientists who broke the altitude record in a hot air balloon stars a man and woman because “representation is important,” but this rewrites history: in reality, it was two men who did that.
He concludes: “Women Never Get Enough Credit for the Things They Didn’t Do.”
