On Bill Maher’s “Real Time,” former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm was thrilled with the first half of Maher’s statement about social media platforms banning Alex Jones, but no applause could be heard coming from Granholm during the second part, for good reason:

Kudos to Bill Maher for slamming his fellow liberals for not standing up for free speech:

That sure stopped Granholm’s applause right in its tracks.
The woman with her chin and nose up in the air at the thought of speech being limited is what it wrong with Progressives today…

Maher said “if you’re a liberal you’re supposed to be for free speech,” but based on current examples many liberals only take that to mean speech they agree with.
Agreed. I'm no fan of Maher, but I would never ask for him to be deplatformed over things he says that I disagree with. Events like the banning of Alex Jones expose where people actually stand on the principles of free speech. In 2018, the internet is the public square.

Maher has been consistent with this. Don't agree with hum on 91.4% of things, but he is solid on this. Any comedian should be. https://t.co/aGj1eSIcBM
