Bill Maher isn’t one of my favorites. I rarely agree with what he says, often get annoyed with his crass manner, and generally don’t like him. But, sometimes he’s right. Sometimes, he makes excellent points.
One of those times came recently, when Bill Maher spoke out against wokeness and ridiculous conspiracies on his show, claiming that those two things are why America is losing to China. Watch it here:
For those that can’t or don’t want to watch, here are some highlights from the transcript:
“You’re not going to win the battle for the 21st century if you are a silly people. And Americans are a silly people. Do 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.”
“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.”
“In China alone, they have 40,000 kilometers of high speed rail. America has none. Our fastest train is the tram that goes around the zoo. California wanted to build high-speed rail connecting the entire state, but alas, could not. We’re $6 billion in the hole just trying to finish the track connecting the vital hubs of Bakersfield and Merced.”
We bingewatch, they bingebuild. When COVID hit Wuhan, the city built a quarantine center with 4,000 rooms in 10 days and they barely had to use it because they quickly arrested the rest of the disease.”
“They were back to throwing raves in swimming pools while we were stuck at home surfing the dark web for black market Charmin. We’re not losing to China, we lost. The returns just haven’t all come in yet. They’ve made robots that check a kid’s temperature and got their asses back in school. Most of our kids are still pretending to take Zoom classes while they watch TikTok and their brain cells fully commit ritual suicide.”
He’s right. We are a silly people. Guess what we’re doing while China is readying itself for war and building the largest navy on Earth? Debating whether it makes the military more effective to have pregnant women serve as soldiers.
Note: We’re not even arguing over whether the pregnant women should be in the armed forces. For some reason, that’s been accepted as a given. Instead, we’re going through the absurdity of arguing over whether pregnant women are somehow more effective than non-pregnant men. Give me a break.
I hate giving him credit, but Bill Maher was right. Americans are a silly people. The Chinese are eating our lunch, not because they’re stronger than us but because they’re more focused. The discrepancy between our woke military and their combat effectiveness-focused military is all you need to look at to see that but, as Maher pointed out, pretty much everything shows it. They’re building and advancing while we collapse into a bottomless pit of wokeness.
