On Bill Maher’s most recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the HBO host railed against the woke revolutionaries that have plagued American society.

“Finally, new rule if you’re part of today’s woke Revolution you need to study the part of revolutions where they spin out of control because the revolutionaries get so drunk on their own purifying Elixir they imagine they can reinvent the very nature of human beings,” Maher began. “Communists thought selfishness could be cast out of human nature Russian revolutionaries spoke of the new Soviet man who wasn’t motivated by self-interest but instead wanted to be part of a collective. No, turns out he wanted to be on a yacht in a Gucci tracksuit holding vodka and a prostitute, not standing in line all day for a potato.”

“The problem with Communism and with some very recent ideologies here at home is that they think you can change reality by screaming at it. That you can bend human nature by holding your breath, but that’s the difference between reality and your mommy,” he said. “Lincoln once said that ‘you can repeal all past history but you still cannot repeal human nature,’ but he’s canceled now so fuck him,”

“Yesterday I asked ChatGPT if there are 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?” Maher said. “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.”

“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,” Maher continued. “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.”

“Listen to this story. There’s a law professor at the University of Illinois Chicago named Jason Kilbourne whose crime was that on one of his exams, he used a hypothetical case where a black female worker sued her employer for race and gender discrimination alleging that managers had called her to slur words, the type of real-world case these students might one day confront. Knowing the extreme sensitivity of today’s students he didn’t write the two taboo words on the test just the first letter of each,” the HBO host stated. “He was teaching his students how to fight racism in the place where it matters most the criminal justice system but because he merely alluded to those words, again in the service of a good cause, he was banned from campus, placed on indefinite leave, and made to wear the dunce cap.”

“No, not really the dunce cap part but our American version of that,” he said. “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 this then the person who needs re-education is you.”

“Yes, we do have our own Red Guard here but they do their rampaging on Twitter. Here’s a cute example from a couple of years ago, the banjo player from Mumford and Sons tweeted that he liked a book. A book that apparently had not been approved by the revolution so, of course, he had to delete the tweet and then take time away from the band,” Maher said. “Oh my God you mean this could have affected Mumford and Sons? And then the cringing apology. I have come to better understand the pain caused by the book I endorsed. Pain from a book? Unless he hit the drummer over the head with it. What happened to I can read whatever the fuck I want? Don’t worry I was a musician, it won’t happen again.”

“There was once a very different musician named John Lennon who wrote a song called Revolution and people who didn’t really listen to it thought it was a rah-rah call for revolution,” the comedian explained. “No, it was the opposite. The lyrics are ‘you say you want a revolution well you know we all want to change the world but if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao you ain’t gonna make it with anybody anyhow.’ There’s a guy who understood how good intentions can turn into the insane arrogance of thinking your revolution is so awesome and your generation is so mind-bending improved that you have bequeathed the world with a new kind of human, you’re welcome.”

“With Communists, that human was no longer selfish. In America today that human is no longer born male or female and obesity is not something that affects health,” he concluded. “You can be healthy at any size. Really we voted on it.”
