In the heavily partisan times in which we live, it’s rare for anyone to speak out against their own “side.”
It’s even more rare for any prominent liberal to deviate from the far-left’s approved talking points.
But that’s exactly what this prominent liberal did when he admitted that the “never ending woke competition” is destroying America.
Comedian and host of HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher, has always been extremely far-left, even before it was the standard in today’s Democrat Party.
He’s also always said exactly what he’s thinking at all times, no matter who he made angry.
One thing he seems to rarely do, though, is completely eviscerate his fellow liberals.
Even still, he chose to go down that road recently when he admitted that the woke Left is turning America into a “silly people” and that China has already won as a result.
“And finally, new rule, you’re not gonna win the battle for the 21st century if you are a silly people and Americans are a silly people,” Maher said on Friday night’s “Real Time.” “That’s the classic phrase from Lawrence of Arabia when Lawrence tells his Bedouin allies that as long as they stay a bunch of squabbling tribes, they will remain a silly people. Well, we’re the silly people now. You know who doesn’t care that there’s a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Seuss book? China. All 1.4 billion of them could give a Crouching Tiger flying f**k … because they’re not a silly people.”
Maher went on to say that China is not only winning, but dominating, in everything they do, while America is falling behind because “half the country’s having a never ending woke competition deciding whether Mr. Potato Head has a d*ck.”
“In two generations, China has built 500 entire cities from scratch, moved the majority of their huge population from poverty to the middle class and mostly cornered the market in 5G and pharmaceuticals. Oh, and they bought Africa,” Maher said. “Their New Silk Road initiative is the biggest infrastructure project in history, indebting not just that continent, but large parts of Asia, Europe and the Middle East to the people who built their roads, bridges and ports.”
“We’re not losing to China. We lost,” Maher continued. “The returns just haven’t all come in yet. They made robots that check a kid’s temperature and got their a**es back in school. Most of our kids are still pretending to take zoom classes while they watch Tik Tok and [their] brain cells slowly commit ritual suicide.”
To top it off, Maher concluded that political correctness pushed by the Left is forcing America to abandon accomplishment in order to achieve so-called equality, and ultimately, China is “eating our lunch” as a result.
“There is a progressive trend now to sacrifice merit for equity, colleges are chucking the SAT and ACT test and in New York Mayor de Blasio announced merit would no longer decide who gets into the schools for advanced learners, but rather a lottery system,” he concluded. “You think China’s doing that? Letting political correctness get in the way of nurturing their best and brightest? You think Chinese colleges are offering courses in the philosophy of Star Trek, the sociology of Seinfeld, and Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse? Those are real, and so is China and they are eating our lunch. And believe me in an hour, though, they’ll be hungry again.”

It’s rather odd to hear such comments come from such a prominent liberal.
In fact, if someone read those quotes to literally any American on either side of the political aisle without attributing them to Maher, the overwhelming majority would think they were said by Donald Trump.
But the truth is, this is how out-of-control the politically correct Left has become in this country.
Even the most ardent liberals are finally seeing the effects of their actions, and they’re finally taking a stand against the woke police.
It’s unlikely that this one monologue from Bill Maher will launch a revolution on the Left, leading them to abandon their deeply entrenched politically correct beliefs.
It’s certainly a good start, though.
