Renowned comedian Bill Maher has recently voiced his confusion over the backlash from the left against Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker.

Butker, a devout Catholic, has been under fire for comments he made during a commencement speech at Benedictine College, a private Catholic institution.

Critics have called for his dismissal from professional football due to these remarks.

"I don't see what the big crime is. I really don't," Maher stated.

In a panel discussion on his show "Real Time," Maher derided critics who have painted Butker as a villain of historical proportions. He highlighted the differences between himself and Butker, stating, "I can't express how much this guy [Butker] is not like me. He's religious. He loves marriage. He loves kids... And he's now history's greatest monster."

Maher continued, expressing his bewilderment at the outrage. "Again, I don't agree with much with this guy, but I don't get the thing. He said… ‘Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world.' Ok, that seems fairly, like, modern. ‘But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.’ I don't see what the big crime is. I really don't."

Maher suggested that the backlash against Butker is indicative of a broader issue with the left. "And I think this is part of the problem people have with the left is that lots of people in this country are like this. Like he's saying some of you may go on to lead successful careers, but a lot of you are excited about this other way that people- everybody used to be. And now can't that be a choice too?" Maher questioned.

He also criticized the perceived narrow-mindedness of the left. "And I feel like they feel very put upon, like there's only one way to be a good person and that's to get an advanced degree from one of those a****** factories like Harvard."

Maher further highlighted the irony of selective outrage among the left. "I find it very ironic that he's saying, ‘You know what, in my world, you know, we like the women to stay at home and just have babies’ and the college kids and the young people find this absolutely abhorrent, but they're demonstrating for Hamas, who make that the law!" Maher pointed out.

"It's not just an opinion in Hamas, that you stay home and have the babies. They will enforce you [to do] that!" Maher concluded.
