The other day I put up a paragraph from a blog post by Bill Maher up as my facebook status:
"We all read what Trump said about Obama's election, as well as Ted Nugent and Victoria Jackson. I'm just saying, it's the second term -- maybe it's time for those re-education camps. There are a lot of people in this country who are in need of some serious deprogramming."
Some acquaintances of mine on the Right were upset by this status. For example, one wrote he thought Maher was a "sicko." I told him I thought it was obviously a joke and he gave me his reasoning otherwise:
...it sounds like a liberal throwing out an idea that harks to an approach of liberalism over the last 20 years, which is that anything that disagrees with them needs to be "educated". . It's just taking it to a new level. If it's a joke, great. But coming from Maher? Doesn't seem far off from his typical view.
