1. Unfortunately, some Democrats are also using this phrase to smear other Democrats

2. Bill Maher is an entertainer.

Sadly, he is also somewhat of a thought leader.

3. Bill Maher is a libertarian, not a liberal.

4. So, who exactly created these "identities"? Who separated out

black people to be slaves? Who declared women out to be chattel? Who decided America was a Christian nation? Those in power positions, WHITE CHRISTIAN MEN. White christian men created the "identities" they complain about, now they need to own it.

9. Watch for that and "virtue signalling"

Apparently, if you're against torturing kids by locking them in cages and taking away their medications, it's because you're virtue signalling, rather than simply expressing humanity and compassion, and a morality that doesn't call evil good just because it's your people doing it.

10. Same with "safe spaces".

I'm fucking god damn sick of this talking point. I really, seriously, truly hate the words "safe spaces" and "triggered" and "snowflake". NOBODY and I repeat NOBODY needs more safe spaces than Trump and his ghoulish snowflake followers do. They need their own talk shows, their own websites, their own video blogs, they need a 24/7 TV station and they even hate that one because they're not conservative enough. They think that anyone who isn't 100% on the Trump train is an anti-Christian demon who hates Jesus and the flag, I could go on and on.
