Bill Maher says Trump's SCOTUS pick Amy Coney Barrett is a 'fucking nut'

The woke revolution has striking similarities to China’s communist Cultural Revolution under Chairman Mao, according to HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher, who slammed the intolerant left and pointed out that “we do have our own Red Guard here, but they do their rampaging on Twitter.”

Maher stated,“Yesterday, 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?”

“Because, again, 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. So, your whole life went in the garbage overnight, no biggie. And those who resisted were attacked by an army of purifiers called the Red Guard, who went around the country putting dunce caps on people…who didn’t take to being a new kind of mortal being.

“A lot of pointing and shaming went on — oh, and about a million dead — and the only way to survive was to plead insanity for the crime of being insufficiently radical, then apologize and thank the state for the chance to see what a piece of shit you are, and of course, submit to re-education, or as we call it here in America, freshman orientation.”

Maher gave the example of University of Illinois at Chicago Law Professor Jason Kilborn, who was recently pilloried by his university for daring to use the wrong language in exam paper questions.

Maher stated that Kilborn had to wear the American version of the dunce cap, “eight weeks of sensitivity training, weekly 90-minute sessions with a diversity trainer, and having to write five self-reflection papers, a grown-ass man, a liberal law professor.

“If you can’t see the similarities between that and [the Cultural Revolution], the person who needs re-education is you. Yes, we do have our own Red Guard here, but they do their rampaging on Twitter.”

  1. Not Mao, but Adolf Hitlers Cultural Revolution, Financed by the Jewish Bankers in New York City between 1919 and 1945.

    • Naive as usual A, beginner The Vatican invented communism you twit The while concept of the Vatican is they own everything and everyone. They are the Central Catholic Party of the unnivers you idiot. You don’t even know grade 1 basic information.

  2. The equivalent of “communism/communist party” in China is “racism/democratic party” here in the US. So in China peons can’t speak ill of the party and its leadership, here in the US people can’t criticize political correctness or racism as political controlling tool. In China you see communist slogan everywhere, here in the US you see DEI implementation everywhere. Democrats wants to insert diversity officers everywhere equivalent to political officers in China.

  3. The “Woke” Revolution is the same Nazi garbage
    as the “Revolution” in Russia in 1917!
    Performed by the same NAZIS, Satan’s Children!
