Red-Pilled Bill Maher Compares Woke American Left To Mao’s Cultural Revolution (VIDEO)
Bill Maher is a liberal, but every once in a while he gets something right.
On his HBO show this weekend, he compared today’s woke left to Mao’s Cultural Revolution in China, which punished people for wrongthink, shamed people publicly and forced people to be re-educated.
When you look at how radical higher education in America has become, this comparison makes a lot of sense.
Deadline has details:
China was much on Bill Maher’s mind in this week’s edition of HBO’s Real Time. His first mention came during the opening monologue, when he talked about people “freaking out” over the Chinese spy balloon over Montana…
But Maher turned serious during his New Rules editorial, noting how the woke are trying to reinvent the very nature of human beings. He talked about the Red Guard movement in China, where people would attack those accused of not toeing the ideological line, making them wear dunce caps and publicly shaming them.
Such tactics, Maher said, were an attempt to change things by screaming at it, a problem then — and now, again, becoming more and more a fact of life here in the US.
To illustrate that, Maher cited the story of Jason Kilborn, a University of Illinois Chicago School of Law professor accused of engaging in behaviors that made some students of color feel uncomfortable. On an exam, he alluded to two racial slurs in a hypothetical question on a black female worker suing an employer. Complaints ensued, and he was banned from campus and had to undergo sensitivity training and write five self-reflective essays.
That was the modern version of what the Red Guard was doing. “If you can’t see the similarities between (Kilborn) and that, the person who needs reeducation is you,” Maher said.

Maher is so close to figuring out that the left are the authoritarians.
He is still a Trump-hating liberal, but he deserves credit when he gets something right.
