Comedian Bill Maher recently suggested that if Americans wish to witness the potential consequences of their country’s ongoing embrace of “extreme wokeness,” they need only observe their northern neighbors, Canada.

In his recent appearance on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher contended that Canada should be viewed as a warning example for Americans who idealize progressive utopia and believe they may witness it just by looking across the border.

Maher expressed his concurrence with the notion that American liberals should take lessons from progressive nations that have successfully implemented effective policies.

“They say in politics liberals are the gas pedal and conservatives are the brakes. And I’m generally with the gas pedal. But not if we’re driving off a cliff. Canada was where every woke White college kid wearing pajama pants outdoors who had it up to here with America’s racist patriarchy dreamt of living someday. I mean, besides Gaza.” Maher said.

“There’s only one problem with thinking everything’s better in Canada: It’s not. Not anymore, anyway. The median price of a home here is $346,000. In Canada converted to US dollars, it’s 487. If Barbie moved to Winnipeg, she wouldn’t be able to afford her dream house and Ken would be working at Tim Hortons.” he continued.

“Their vaunted health care system, which ranks dead last among high income countries, and access to primary health care, and the ability to see a doctor in a day or two. And it’s not for lack of spending. Of the 30 countries with universal coverage, Canada spends over 13% of its economy on it, which is a lot of money for free health care. Look, I’m not saying Canada still isn’t a great country, it is, but those aren’t paradise numbers.” Maher added.

“If Canada was an apartment, the lead feature might be America adjacent. And if America was a rental car, Canada would be America or similar. And again, honestly, Canada, I’m not saying any of this because I enjoy it. I don’t because I’ve always enjoyed you, but I need to cite you as a cautionary tale to help my country. And the moral of that tale is ‘yes, you can move too far left, and when you do, you wind up pushing the people in the middle to the right.’ At its worst. Canada is what American voters think happens when there’s no one putting a check on extreme wokeness.” the comedian said in conclusion.
