“There is a cancer on progressivism,” Maher said during the panel discussion.

He then noted he doesn’t think the social justice warriors are really interested in social justice.

“I don’t think they are interested in justice. I don’t think they are interested in truth. I think they are interested in cliques,” he continued on.

His comments drew a smattering of applause.

Continuing on, Maher further claimed cultural appropriation was just “made up” and that “no one is hurt” by it.
