British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan in a recent interview with Turning Point UK published on Monday said that he believes “liberals have become unbearable,” and he said this speaking “as a liberal” himself.

“Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a liberal, OK?” said the “Good Morning Britain” co-anchor.

“In my core, I’m probably more liberal than not, although fundamentally, I see myself as a journalist,” he continued, “and I’d like to see both sides of things, and I can argue both, but liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive problem.”  

Morgan went on to shed light on the hypocrisy of the intolerant far left, saying, “What’s the point in calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view?”

He added that the “snowflake … victimhood culture” is unbecoming and “completely skewed,” so much so that there can no longer be any hosts for award shows because people get offended by everything.

“No, thanks,” Morgan said.

Correcting Turning Point UK’s tweet caption calling him "so woke," a term beloved by the left, Morgan re-tweeted with the caption “anti-woke!”
