The Democrat Party’s allies are growing thin. And they’re starting to take hits from their own ranks.
And this Major Democrat betrayed the Woke Left on live TV.
Democrats have been slowly moving further and further Left for decades.
Just take a look at Joe Biden, who in 2006 said that marriage is between a man and a woman during an interview on “Meet the Press” with Tim Russert.
Now, Biden claims that pumping the brakes on prescribing gender transition drugs to minors is “close to sinful.”
And his Vice President, Kamala Harris, is writing adoring letters to Dylan Mulvaney, and trans-identifying biological male, to congratulate him on “365 days of living authentically.”
This seismic shift has Left many of the few remaining Blue Dog Democrats dumbfounded.
And they’re starting to show their true colors.
“Nobody ever gets canceled for being too woke,” comedian Bill Maher observed in a short video clip that circulated on Twitter on Monday afternoon.
Maher, who appeared with Fox Nation host Piers Morgan on Monday’s episode of their interview program “Piers Morgan: Uncensored,” argued that people had been so thoroughly brainwashed by activists and social media that even when someone said something truly insane, the majority would simply nod, smile, and act as though they had never thought any differently.
“Nobody ever gets canceled for being too woke. So you can say the craziest thing, like ‘men can have babies’ and then nobody will — even though people are thinking, ‘well, that’s kind of nuts,’ nobody will say it. They’ll just fall in line,” Maher said.
“‘Uh, yeah, exactly, that’s what I’ve always thought,’” Maher continued in sarcastic tones, prompting laughs from Morgan. “‘Sure. I saw a dude who was glowing yesterday.’ And that’s the problem.”

“Totally insane,” the host responded.
“Cowardice,” Maher countered.
“Yes, it is. It’s moral cowardice,” Morgan agreed, but Maher suggested it was also “intellectual cowardice.”
Morgan continued by pointing out that some people were being silent because they were terrified, and they had good reason to be afraid because they had witnessed other people being fired for opposing certain agendas.
“They’ve seen people around them literally getting canceled, getting shamed and abused —” Morgan continued, and Maher agreed. “Hounded out of jobs — they think, ‘I don’t want it to happen to me.’”
Maher’s visit on “Uncensored” comes only days after Morgan and Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) joined the comedian for his Friday night show on HBO, where the three discussed a variety of subjects.
One of those subjects was the transgender TikTok sensation Dylan Mulvaney, who recently signed advertising contracts with well-known companies including Bud Light from Anheuser Busch and the sportswear company Nike, the latter of which especially angered Morgan.
“I said that for someone who identified as a gay man until last year to be sporting a women’s sports bra, despite having no breasts, as ‘they’ pranced around like a clueless non-athlete, mimicking how a misogynist would scornfully depict a woman doing sport, struck me as a slap in the face to actual women,” Morgan reflected in a Monday op-ed for The New York Post.
He continued by saying that he was surprised to see that Maher’s left-leaning crowd agreed with him. “It felt like a moment of reckoning, when an insane ideology hits the buffers of basic common sense, and the public knows it,” he wrote.
