Bill Maher, comedian and host of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” declared 2024 as the “year of sanity” during his show.

He highlighted the need for a return to rationality in American politics, emphasizing that the real divide is between “normal vs. crazy” rather than left versus right.

Maher pointed out various issues he deemed irrational, advocating for a middle ground that is socially liberal but not excessively woke, and fiscally responsible but not unkind.

“And finally, New Rule for 2024, America has to go back on its meds,” Maher said.

“Let’s make this the year of sanity,” he said. “Everybody thinks we’ve gone bonkers. And a lot of it is because the far ends on both left and right have gotten way too much attention — which begs the question, how do you suck all of the oxygen out of the room and still not get any to your brain?”

“What does strike a sane person as crazy?” Maher asked. “I don’t know, if you were going to ask me, I would start with the fact that I still occasionally still see someone driving alone with a mask on. Who do they think they’re going to get it from? The lady in the next car putting on her makeup?”

“Socially liberal but not stupid woke. Fiscally sane but not cruel. Is this really that hard? Trans people should be respected and protected, but no penises in women’s prisons maybe? Legalize pot but maybe stop giving drugs to hard drug addicts? Nikki Haley says America’s never been racist, and social justice warriors say there’s been no progress since ‘Amos and Andy’?”

He also criticized the support for a terrorist organization, emphasizing the battle for the soul of the country as one between normalcy and irrationality.

“A terrorist organization in the Middle East that treats women like slaves, invaded Israel last October and shot hundreds of young people at a music festival in the desert,” he said.

“And now America’s streets are full of parades in support of the shooters, led by the exact kind of people who would be at a music festival in the desert. That’s the literal standard for involuntary commitment: when you’re a danger to yourself.”

“The battle for the soul of this country isn’t right or left. It’s normal versus crazy,” he said.
