At least there's still Bill Maher

People are sometimes confused that I'm a Bill Maher fan. This weekend he reminded me why I admire him with a segment telling liberals to halt the outrage and to stop trying to blacklist everyone.

I've long been a critic against efforts to yank someone's speaking platform away because of something they said, a scenario that happened to Maher a decade ago, and Maher nailed it:

A few weeks ago, the CEO of Mozilla was forced to resign because it was revealed in 2008, he supported Prop 8, California's ban on gay marriage. A bad law, yes, but 52 percent of Californians voted for it. Did they have to resign? Obama was against gay marriage in 2008, does he have to resign? Hillary came around just last year, can she be president?

The transcript is here, and the video is below.
