Bill Maher, the host of HBOâ€™s â€œReal Timeâ€ show, told CNN in a recent interview that he doesnâ€™t get conservatives who on one hand say they hate socialism but on the other hand accept entitlements such as Social Security and Medicaid.
The nationâ€™s â€œevery man for himselfâ€ attitude should be replaced by the â€œquasi-socialismâ€ of other modern societies, he suggested, as Mediaite reported.
â€œ[Socialism is] not a dirty word, but in America, when you say â€˜socialist,â€™ most people, they donâ€™t know what it means, but they know itâ€™s something super bad, like pedophilia or atheism or something like that. Meanwhile, they do nothing but take money from the government.â€
Mr. Maher said conservatives are â€œsuch hypocritesâ€ for taking Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security at the same time touting that they â€œhate socialism,â€ Mediaite reported.
If only Americans were better informed, then this hypocritical political atmosphere could be overcome, he suggested. But Fox News puts the kibosh on that, he said.
