Bill Maher Tackles NFL For Playing ‘Black National Anthem’
Bill Maher torched the NFL for playing the "black national anthem," calling this "segregation under a different name."
During the Friday night episode of his show “Real Time,” liberal host Bill Maher turned on the “woke” left as he blasted the NFL for playing the “black national anthem” before games.
Maher Sounds Off On Race-Baiting Left
Maher said that this is really just racial segregation under a new name, and that the left has taken their race-baiting nonsense way too far.
You can listen to him right here:
“[W]hen people say to me, sometimes, boy, you go after the left a lot these days, why? I’m like, because you’re embarrassing me,” Maher began, according to Yahoo News. “That’s why I’m going after the left, in a way you never did before. Because you’re inverting things that I — I’m not going to give up on being liberal. … You’re taking children and making them hyper-aware of race in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be.”
Maher Calls Out NFL
That’s when Maher shifted to attacking the NFL:
I mean, I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang, ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ which now I hear is called the black national anthem. Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem.”
“I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have — many of them have different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms. This is what I mean, segregation. You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name.”
Maher was referring to the fact that two national anthems were played before Thursday night’s season kickoff game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.

Of course there are those who are dumfounded that Maher has just heard about the ‘Black National Anthem’:
“I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,' which now I hear is called the Black national anthem.” – Bill Maher, who added “going down a road of two anthems leads to segregation.”
It’s only been the Black anthem for more than a century.

Aside from the real national anthem “The Star Spangled Banner” being played, Keys also performed “Lift Every Voice And Sing,” which has become known as the “black national anthem.”
Here’s her performance:
Maher Concludes His Rant
“And to the point about inverting what the goals were, I mean, when I was a kid, it was about — I was too young to understand, but my father was telling me John F. Kennedy was a great president because he sent the troops so that black kids could go to school,” Maher concluded. “Because the goal was to have as good of an education for everybody.”
Liberals are trying to use race to divide us more than ever before in the hopes of encouraging more people to go “woke” and vote Democrat.
This has gone way too far, and more liberals like Maher need to call it out if it’s going to end anytime soon.
The NFL also needs to stop catering to the most radical of liberals, and only play “The Star Spangled Banner.”
Our country has just one national anthem, and it should always stand on its own to represent all Americans, regardless of their race.
