Bill Maher Admits Dems’ Concentration Camp Remarks May Not Fly With Voters: ‘Going to Be Very Hard to Win’

HBO host Bill Maher warned Democrats that it may be difficult to win an election using extreme rhetoric about immigration during a debate on his show, “Real Time,” on Friday.

As IJR Red reported, some Democratic lawmakers have been using the term “concentration camps” to describe immigrant detention centers. However, Maher pushed back on using the term, saying it was too extreme for what was happening.

“Come on, when we think of concentration camps, I think of mass graves, I think of experimenting on human people,” Maher said.

He claimed that while most people agree that there needs to be immigration reform, the term “concentration camp” has a horrific connotation.

“Now, they’re horrible places, I think we all agree it’s just beyond the pale that America would do this to people. And concentration camps, maybe they fit that definition technically, but there are certain words that we just associate with something truly at the ultimate end of horrendous. Holocaust just means a big fire, but we don’t use the word, ‘Hey, let’s go have a Holocaust, I’ll bring the weiners.’ No one says that.”

One of the show’s guests then suggested that it was a correct way to describe the camps because the conditions could continue to get worse.

“You really think we’re on the road to death camps?” Maher asked.

He continued to defend his previous statement, saying that “it has a connotation that goes far beyond, as so many words do.” Maher also pointed out that voters may not support Democrats if they continue with the comparison.

Watch the video below:

“If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps, it’s going to be very hard to win the election,” Maher said. “I’m not saying you can’t do it, but very hard to argue that this is helping.”

While Democrats have received wide backlash, many are continuing to make their comparisons.

What do you think?

This is entertaining. Bill Maher, the democrat ‘canary in a coal mine’, warning democrats they might lose if they continue down the crazy path they’re on. How rich.

My hope is that after President Trump’s second term, we can find another Republican who can get elected and continue to fight for the America I grew up in.

Nah let them keep talking about Concentration camps and reparations I mean clearly this generation owned a dozen slaves for every white heterosexual male. White heterosexual males caused and created every problem and woe this world has ever had. We need to give our minds over to the great master’s of the Democratic party they clearly know what’s better for me than my tiny peasant mind could comprehend. I mean it’s all over the news how were gassing illegals at the border and doing human experiments….oh wait Democrats are just bat shit crazy and completely disconnected from reality who live… Read more »

The Dems already saw you can claim moderate views like Obama did, and then do extreme actions especially after being re-elected. They already lie left and right. Finding someone more charismatic than Bernie, Biden, or Warren would be the first step, but they keep rolling out fossils and/ or loonies. How is it possible you can have 98% of the media doing everything it can to help one side and they still lose. Promising to attack free speech, gun ownership, and killing babies don’t seem to be a winning combination.

The Dem party has become so radical, so Marxist, fascist, communist I hope they never win another election (well the big blue cities are locked in….due to fraud imho).

Notice how EVERY election Dims lose is to “fascists”, “Nazis”, and “dictators” which is a pure example of projection.

Were they capable of objectively examining (’cause self-awareness is a disqualifier) the policies they embrace/push they’d realize they are exactly those things.

“We want to run peoples’ lives because we know better.” is literally the cry of every single fascist/Communist regime. “We must control how they speak and what they think.”

They even go so far as to accumulate SPECIAL privileges (above the law), wealth, and influence which few of the “proles” will ever have.

Maher surprised me again. That’s about 3, if I’m not mistaken, anti-Democrat remarks. Careful Bill, they’ll turn on you if you start getting too logical. You’ll be out of a job!
