Although HBO comedian Bill Maher often spouts the left-wing agenda of Democrats, he rightfully slammed liberal celebrities who continue to bow to the demands of communist China.
Maher singled out NBA star LeBron James and actor John Cena for “kowtowing” to the communist regime despite ongoing human rights abuses.
China is accused of disturbing human rights abuse against its people, including forced labor, systematic torture, illegal imprisonment, religious freedom abuses, authoritarian surveillance, organ harvesting, and abusive psychiatric measures.
As the Olympic games were held in China, Maher pointed out how Americans should be promoting democratic government.
“In America, we’re supposed to root for democratic government, not apologize for it,” Maher said. “But the NBA has a television deal with China worth a billion-and-a-half dollars. So, LeBron James said Morey needed to be ‘educated on the situation,’ the situation being, ‘I’ve got some shoes to sell.’”
LeBron James and the NIKE company are regularly outspoken about left-wing “social justice initiatives” in America, but they are often silent about their own ties to China where there are ongoing human rights violations.
“‘Kowtow’ is a Chinese word, but boy, Americans have gotten good at it,” Maher continued.
For financial gain, celebrities want access to the Chinese markets. This means they can’t do anything that upsets the Chinese Communist Party.
“That’s the deal China offers American companies and celebrities: We’ll give you access to our billion-plus consumers as long as you shut up about the whole police-state-genocide thing,” Maher said.
“John Cena took that deal. Well, c’mon. China accounts for 34% of global box office, and he’s a movie star now. So, like the Uyghurs, last year, he learned he needed to get some re-education,” Maher added.
“You see, John referred to Taiwan as a country, as if it was a separate country from China, which it is. But China would like to do to Taiwan what it did to Tibet and what it’s now doing to Hong Kong.”
“When a country can make your big muscly Macho Man action star grovel in their language, you know you’re somebody’s b****,” Maher said.
“In the original ‘Top Gun,’ Tom Cruise wore a bomber jacket with the flags of several Asian countries that are our allies sewn on the back. Well, the flag for Taiwan has now magically disappeared for the upcoming ‘Top Gun: Maverick.’ Well, he used to be a maverick. Now he does whatever China says,” Maher explained.
Maher also slammed 18-year-old skier Eileen Gu who turned on the U.S. and competed for China in the recent Olympic games.
Well, Maher isn’t wrong....
at one time, if a countrry wanted to do business with America, well then, they had riders on the contracts. if an American ‘star of entertainment’ went elsewhere, there were riders on the contract.
now, if an American, person or company, does business with chicoms, there are chicom riders overruling American freedoms.
so, for y’all doing any business with chicoms, just remember ...they do not believe in vaseline!!!
He’s right on this.
Cena and Bron couldn’t care less. They’re getting paid...........
I hate bill Maher with a passion, But on this point he is both brave and correct.
I still hate him though, because of the rarity of his accuracy coupled with his smarmy superiority complex.
People might think that a Chinese prostitute is dressed like a streetwalker with long black hair and Asian features but a Chinese prostitute looks like LeBron James.
Like the whores they are.
Maher’s getting close to my threshold of when I agree with 30% of what he says, he’s acceptable to me.
It is not like Winnie the Xi is orange and thus bad or anything
“Cena and Bron couldn’t care less. “
at least I’m not some crybaby bitch who apologized AND CRIED on camera to the chicoms that he was sorry...
The difference between a Japanese prostitute and a Chinese prostitute is that the Japanese prostitute says “Nipponese” and the Chinese prostitute says “Chumanchu”.
He’s coming around lately.
I am re-examining my views now, Maher joining my idea of common sense is disturbing my equilibrium.
Russell Brand is another one, he’s starting to make a lot of sense.
I enjoy Russell Bramd. He’s entertaining and presents a varying point of bpview. I like to challenge my positions. Lately, I feel I’m projecting my German Mothers experiences into todays events (recently passed, she would have been 100 today!).
He is beyond redemption, even though on rare occasions he is both correct and brave.
