WATCH: Comedian Bill Maher TRASHES Woke Scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson In EPIC Takedown - 'These People Are F***ing Nuts'

On Sunday, comedian Bill Maher confronted noted astrophysicist and science popularizer Neil DeGrasse Tyson after Tyson defended the woke sensibilities of the younger generations.

After Tyson argued that there was still "a portfolio of jokes" that would still work on a college campus, Maher replied, "I would hope not." 

"The ones [colleges] you read about are f***ing insane ... I have given up on any place that doesn't even remotely attempt to believe in free speech and thinks that anything they hear that they don't like, that they don't agree with is violence. These people are f***ing nuts, and you should be calling them out. Somebody like you, who has standing with kids," Maher told Tyson. "You're doing what parents do: You're taking the path of least resistance and therefore hurting the kids and yourself. Parents ruin both their lives. They ruin their f***ing spoiled kids' lives, and they ruin their own lives because the kids rule the roost. So that's what you're doing on a national level."

Maher is absolutely correct. By not directly challenging the ideology of the youth, Tyson is effectively enabling it. Thus, while Tyson seeks to present himself as a public intellectual of sorts, his actions are in discord with his public persona. A real public intellectual would challenge the status quo when necessary -- although he should not criticize society for its own sake. That would not be a conservative ideal. Nonetheless, wokeness is the antithesis of true conservatism. As such, Tyson runs into no difficulties when it comes to defending the ideology of our elites -- which is becoming increasingly more woke every passing year. 

This is not the first time Maher has tackled woke ideology. During a September appearance on the 'Joe Rogan Experience' podcast, Maher told host Joe Rogan, "I have always believed, as liberals do, in a color-blind society. The goal is to not see race at all anywhere for any reason ... The woke believe race is first and foremost the thing you should always see everywhere, which I find interesting because that used to be the position of the Ku Klux Klan."

Maher is a liberal of the old sort. The radical woke are liberals of the new sort, and their antics directly uproot the very basis of our society.
