As America continues its descent into the leftist abyss, it’s heartening to see voices of reason like Bill Maher speak out against the “Woke Revolutionaries” who are threatening the very fabric of our nation. In his latest show, Maher exposes the dangers of these self-appointed purifiers, who believe they can change human nature through shouting and virtue signaling.
What these misguided individuals fail to understand is that the communist regimes of the past, such as Mao’s Cultural Revolution, show us just how dangerous it is to try and alter human nature.
Mao ordered his citizens to throw off the “four olds,” leading to a society where citizens were attacked for not being radical enough and made to submit to reeducation. The result was a country where a million lives were lost and the only way to survive was to apologize and submit to the state.
In America today, we see the same type of thought policing and reeducation tactics being used by the leftist Red Guard. A law professor at the University of Illinois Chicago was banned from campus and made to undergo sensitivity training and self-reflection simply because he used a hypothetical case involving racist language in his exams to teach his students how to fight racism. This is not just a farce, it’s straight out of Mao’s playbook.
And it’s not just in academia where we see this type of outrage culture at play. The entertainment industry is also a breeding ground for these leftist purifiers.
A banjo player from Mumford and Sons was shamed for liking a book that wasn’t approved by the revolution, leading to a cringing apology and time away from the band.
What happened to the idea of freedom of speech and the ability to read whatever we want? John Lennon’s famous song, “Revolution,” was not a call to arms but rather a warning against mindless revolution.
In America today, it seems like the only type of revolution the left wants is one where dissent is not allowed and anyone who disagrees is shamed and reeducated.
It’s time for Republicans and conservative Americans to stand up against this leftist takeover and fight for our rights and freedoms. We cannot allow the leftist purifiers to rewrite our history and change human nature. America is and will always be a bastion of freedom and liberty, and it’s time we start acting like it.
