Bill Maher 'We the Rebels Now' Against 'White Supremacist' Federal Government

Red Velvet was mentioned briefly by Bill Maher on the September 15 airing of his HBO show ' Real Time with Bill Maher'.

Bill Maher cheered California's defiance of Donald Trump's agenda Friday evening, saying the country's third-largest state is asserting its rights over a "white supremacist" government. "They can't complain when our local law enforcement refuses to cooperate with Trump's deportation squads".

He added that conservatives can't complain when California cities threaten "to deny contracts to any firm that helps build the border wall".

Comparing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with former Alabama governor George Wallace and his "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" stance, Maher said: "That was then". Conservatives, he says, "can't get mad because we're just following in a long and hallowed conservative tradition called states' rights". "Now the white supremacists are the federal government and it's liberal states that are under siege from federal overreach". "We are trying to defend our way of life here and what we believe in".

"It's just that now we're that state that wants to be left alone!" "We believe in sanctuary cities and pollution controls and legalized pot and gun control and ObamaCare and a woman's right to choose - and we're going to defend 'em". "We're the rebels now". "We are the rebels now, and now we get to talk like dis!" "We don't need no outside agitators with their "Make America Great Again" caps coming in here to our clean state and telling us to take down our solar panels", he said with an over-the-top drawl.
