Bill Maher used his New Rules segment this Friday to rail against those who are way too politically incorrect to suit him and to proclaim victory for liberals if they were wondering who has won the culture war in America.

HBO's Bill Maher is apparently not thrilled with the portion of his audience that believes he's supposed to be "politically correct" at all times.

Maher Rails Against PC Mob: People Have the Right to Be ‘A**holes!’:

It seems like week after week, there’s some new piece of PC outrage on the web that’s gotten everyone so shocked and offended (the Duck Dynasty guy, the Benham brothers), and Bill Maher ended his show tonight telling the politically correct crowd to knock if off. But it wasn’t all dour, he said it’s fine to stop whining all the time because “the culture war is over and we won!”

Why? Well, the Michael Sam kiss shocked the nation, some football player wasn’t too happy about it, and the NFL fined him and sent him to sensitivity training, but not before everyone tweet-shamed him (as Maher mockingly put it “I’m the real hero, I’m hitting send!”). But where’s the culture war victory here? The fact that there was actually an interracial gay kiss broadcast on television.
