"Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, Okay? And I speak as a liberal… Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture we operate in, this victimhood culture that everyone, has to think in a certain way, behave a certain way. Everyone has to have a bleeding heart… You say a joke 10 years ago that offended somebody you can never host the Oscars… So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They’re fed up with the snowflake culture. They’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything… They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their life but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to, It’s a kind of version of fascism.

Reader comments about this quote:
Said well and mostly accurate. I would like to get his spin on fascism. Today's liberals are theocratic bullies that want to implement their own version of socialism (communism, fascism, progressivism, etc.). It seams liberals have tried to erroneously redefine fascism to mean anything that disagrees with them.

    He's right on target.

    Love it!  Right on.  Today's liberals are liberal in name only  most do not know how socialism IS fascism with all the same trappings (banning this and that, compelled compliance, submission to the state).  Wake up, already.  Liberals are the new authoritarians, the new ministers of truth, self-appointed morality police, adopting every corruption of the Catholic Church of old.  Might being right, ignorance bliss.  Hypocritical is an understatement  deluded they must surely be.
