HBO talk show host and comedian Bill Maher said that the Democratic party’s constant racial “pandering” is not working.

On his latest episode of ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ he told them that harping on identity politics was outdated and simply not effective.

To put it mildly.

‘Outdated Racial Pandering is One Reason Democrats Lose Elections’

Bill Maher made his comments at the close of his show on Friday night.

“I do give a sh** about who wins the next election. And outdated racial pandering is one reason Democrats lose elections,” Maher said.

“When Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi put on Kente cloth, I don’t think it earned them one vote for their powerful emotional ties to Ghana,” the comedian jokes, referring to white Democratic members of Congress dressing in African garb during the George Floyd protests.

Maher continued:

“Here in California, we’re now segregating kidnapping. Really,” Maher said. “California doesn’t just have AMBER alerts for missing children. We have ‘Ebony alerts’ for Black children and ‘feather’ alerts for Native American kids. What is that, you look for them by listening on the ground?”

Maher warned that “far-left liberals are living in an old paradigm. Americans don’t fit into neat little boxes anymore.”

The HBO host cited black artists’ recent achievements in country music, historically a white dominated field, specifically Beyoncé’s chart-topping country song and Lil Nas X’s Country Music Award.

“It’s not working for them or for us,” Maher said. “Democrats are hemorrhaging the very voters they think they’re pandering to.”

Maher added that old political and societal lines were simply not holding true anymore, saying, “Two-thirds of Republican voters support weed legalization. And 41% of Democrats own or live with someone who owns a gun. Ms. Marvel is Pakistani and the winner of the last two NBA dunk contests is white.”

“The new Captain America is Black and Spider-Man is black and Puerto Rican, just like AI George Washington,” Maher joked.

He was making fun of recent AI-generated images of America’s first president, similar to this one.

Bill Maher: ‘Our Black President Was Half White and Our Black Vice President is Half Asian’

Just when viewers thought Maher might have been done in making his point, he took it to the next level.

“Latinos make up half of the Border Patrol and the name of the coolest Black dude on the planet is Lenny Kravitz. RuPaul has a ranch in Wyoming that does fracking,” Maher continued.

“Somehow the leader of The Village People was straight… The leader of the Proud Boys isn’t an old white guy. It’s Enrique Tarrio, an Afro-Cuban… Caitlyn Jenner is a pro-Trump trans woman who supports a ban on trans athletes competing in women’s sports… Our black president was half white and our black vice president is half Asian.”

Maher listed endless examples in American culture where the type of identity politics Democrats focus on shows how out of touch that party is with current reality.

Maher finished by saying, “My point is look, you’re still building your politics around slicing and dicing people into these fixed categories.”

“Democrats need to get the memo,” he concluded.
