Bill Maher Slams new Woke Demand to Change Word ‘Equality’ to ‘Equity’

Late night host and frequent critic of woke culture, Bill Maher is now slamming a new far-left demand that the word ‘equality’ be changed to ‘equity.’

Maher warned that that such a move would lead to a new world that wasn’t worth living in.

As The Daily Wire reports:

HBO host Bill Maher warned late last week that the recent push in society for equity instead of equality will lead the world that is not desirable to live in.

Maher made the remarks during a segment that mostly focused on an article in Rolling Stone magazine from last year that was about equity in the music industry. The segment comes against the backdrop of the Democratic Party and left-wing activists pushing for racial equity in seemingly every aspect of life in the U.S. During a separate segment on his show, Maher warned that the U.S. was “entering an era of re-segregation” which he said was “coming from the left.”

“And finally, new rule: If you believe in the philosophy of equality of outcomes, then you really shouldn’t have watched the Grammys last Sunday,” Maher said. “Because the Grammys, aside from the usual award show virtue signaling, are still largely about the idea that certain people do music better than others. And it’s okay to reward them for it. That’s called meritocracy. And it’s the opposite of guaranteed outcomes, equality of outcomes, as opposed to equality of opportunity. We used to call that by another name, trophy syndrome, a world that was created back in the 90s, where everybody, every kid gets a trophy, no matter how good or bad they are at something. Well, the result of that kind of thinking is that American kids now have a totally diluted and unearned belief in their charm, brains, and talent.”

“It’s not only that the entire generation wants to be famous, it’s that they think not being famous isn’t fair. If you think I’m exaggerating, let me quote from this article in Rolling Stone magazine last year, lamenting how streaming has not given us equality of outcomes in the music industry,” Maher continued. “The Grammys would look quite different if we followed this template. The article tells us that more than 1.6 million, million, ‘artists’ release songs between January 2019 and July 2020, 40,000 tracks a day on Spotify. And yet Rolling Stone complains, ‘today’s streaming landscape looks a lot like the music industry used to… a small class of artists… see not just the majority of activity, but damn near all of it.’ Yes, these are called the good ones.”

He’s talking about narcissistic entitlement. ” I exist therefore I deserve. ” My kid was a very good athlete and we were cleaning out stuff. When asked what he wanted to save of his trophies, he said throw them out except one, a state championship trophy in Div 1 H.S.baseball. He said he earned that one and he sure did. So, he is not like some in the rest of the generation.

Equity is another word for communism/Marxism/socialism no matter how you say it what it means is that there will not be any incentive to better yourself or invent new product or work hard as you will still be no better offthsn bvb the man that chooses not to do anything and will have all that you have for the government will give you everything. It called a utopian world that does not exist no matter how many times it had be tried for mans greed always outweighs equity

Actually it is a dystopia, but you are correct, there is no incentive to do anything better or work harder. Our founders tried it when the first settlers came to this continent, and they found it didn’t work! Imagine that. People starved.
If their utopia really worked, what happened to the communes of the 1960’s that supposedly supported these ideals?

Just understand what the people behind this cancel culture want! 4 fold: 1) Remove God and Church 2) Remove National pride and loyalty. 3) Remove respect for parents and authority and lastly 4) Remove individua thinking. As in Mob culture

Sure, Maher, of late, seems to be making a lot of sense, but does he not realize that his push for his liberal causes in the past are directly responsible for the current psychosis? He helped make the monster and now he’s appalled that it’s every bit as bad as the Right kept trying to tell him? So, yeah, thanks for your commentary, Bill, but you were the problem. We might not be here if you had awakened (which is not the same as getting “woke”) earlier.

I have said the exact same thing. Although what he says here is correct, it’s too little too late. Glad to see Maher has finally woke up though!
