WATCH: Bill Maher Just Now Realizes Communism is Bad, Compares Wokeism to Mao's Cultural Revolution
Bill Maher is back with another based-but-late take. This one's about the evils of communism. Groundbreaking.
On Friday, Maher compared the woke mob to China's Cultural Revolution under Mao Zedong in the 1960s. He began the monologue by saying, "I asked ChatGPT, ‘Are there any similarities between today’s woke revolution and Chairman Mao’s cultural revolution of the 1960s? And it wrote back, ‘How long do you have?’"
\u201cIf you're part of today's woke revolution, you need to study the part of revolutions where they spin out of control.\u201d— Bill Maher (@Bill Maher) 1675488197
He went on to explain, "In China, we saw how a revolutionary thought he could do a page-one rewrite. Of humans. Mao ordered his citizens to throw off the 'four olds': old thinking, old culture, old customs, and old habits."
Maher elaborated that those who resisted the revolution fell victim to the Red Guard, were forced to wear dunce caps, and probably got murdered. The only way to escape the Red Guard was to plead insanity and "submit to reeducation, or as we call it here in America, freshman orientation."
It's refreshing to see such basic critiques of communism finally hitting more mainstream media outlets. But Bill, buddy...you're a tad bit late on this one. Some of us knew all along that communism killed 100 million people in 100 years, and that trying to force people to go against human nature and operate for "the greater good" never quite pans out. And by that I mean it usually ends in genocide.
At the end of his monologue, Maher shifted gears and took a jab at biological males competing in women's sports, saying "I’ve spent three decades on TV mocking Republicans who said climate change is a theory. And now I've got to deal with people who say, ‘You know what else is just a theory? Biology.’”
You'd think that upholding basic biology and sex-separated sports would also be a tired, rehashed argument. But no, this one is fairly new. Unfortunately. The beauty of progressivism, boys and girls.
