Comedian Bill Burr says ‘I f–king hate liberals’ at UC Berkeley show, calls out hypocrisy
Comedian Bill Burr called out the hypocrisy of liberals during a show on UC Berkeley’s campus over the weekend, reportedly telling the audience that he “f—ing hate[s]” them.Burr, never one to shy away from controversial topics, covered everything from his relationship with his wife and the ongoing Israel-Gaza war, to transgender rights and Biden’s cognitive decline, before wading into his issues with liberals, the San Francisco Gate reported.“I f—ing hate liberals,” Burr reportedly told the audience on Saturday. The outlet said it was clear he was referring specifically to “White liberals,” and that he took issue with their hypocrisy, not necessarily their political ideology.He proceeded to call out people who put “Black Lives Matter” signs in their windows without taking any quantifiable actions.“That’s like if I told you my great-grandmother in Germany had a ‘Knock it off, Nazis’ sign,” he said, according to the outlet.The comic continued, “If you run into a White person who says they’re an empath, run the other way.” Burr said such people “like making other peoples’ suffering about [themselves].”At a different point in the show, Burr seemed surprised at how the Berkeley crowd laughed at a joke about President Biden having dementia, SF Gate reported.This isn’t the first time Burr took the opportunity to air his frustration with liberals in public.
