GOP Sen. Sasse Takes Heat…for Bill Maher’s N-Word Comment

Of course we all know liberals can’t be held responsible for violating liberal principles of fairness, so someone else has to be at fault.

So when Bill Maher dropped the N-word in his interview of Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, it’s Sasse’s fault for not acknowledging it and moving on to the next question.

Does the left demand an apology from Maher? Of course not. Does Sasse need to explain his lack of outrage?

Apparently so.

It’s pure insanity out there, folks. Black is white and white is black. The emperor has no clothes.

Here’s more from Redstate…

One might think the headline might be facetious or click bait it’s so implausible, but it’s absolutely for real.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R – Neb.) has been making the book tour rounds following the drop of his book, “The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance,’ a book I’ve been listening to via Audible for the past week. But none of the truths of what Sasse says matters in light of what someone else said in his presence.

Here’s the moment everyone is so outraged at Sen. Sasse about:

On speaking about hard work and manual labor — a theme in his book –Sen. Sasse said, “we’d love to have you work in the fields with us.”

Maher responds, “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n*****.”

And because the audience laughed and Sen. Sasse moved on as quickly as possible from Maher’s incendiary words and hasn’t made a public denunciation since the recording, Sasse is being derided over Maher’s comment.


We will no longer be held to account for our own words, but the words of people we’re in proximity to if we ascribe to the “incorrect” ideology.

Sen. Sasse doesn’t owe an explanation, denunciation, or apology to anyone. He said nothing that is not inclusive and applicable across all ages, races, genders, and abilities.
