On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that China doesn’t need to feed people on TikTok pro-terrorist and antisemitic beliefs, “they just have to let these idiots talk to each other.” And “Half of it is coming from where they’re supposed to be learning from.”

Occasionally, he’s right....
And the kids get it from their schools because we have let our universities be infiltrated by Arabs.
We have permitted universities to accept money from Saudi Arabia for decades.
That money comes with requirements that there be Arab studies, Islamic studies and so on.
And of course those studies have to have professors with the proper view of the subject matter.
We have had major universities with these programs for decades. Is it surprising that our children are being taught b anti-semites?
Gee Bill, one could make the same claim here in the U.S. After all, look who the children are supporting. I’ll give you a clue, it’s not Israel.
Adult conversions are interesting, in both religion and politics. It’s been many years, but I used to read extensively in the “Up From Communism” and “The God that Failed” line of histories and memoirs. On a side track, it’s interesting to read on the bitter ideological warfare between the communist and the non-communist left.
One of the key questions is always what triggered a person’s defection from the left. Sometimes it can be a shattering personal experience. Or the power of example. Or a slow intellectual disillusionment. Slow disillusion isn’t as dramatic but it is very common, as intellectually engaged people are driven inch by inch to realize that to live on the left means to accept systematic lying. Some sell out and don’t break with the party line, even though they now realize that the party line is a lie. But some become disgusted, get their backs up, and publicly dissent.
Bill Mahar has all the earmarks of someone who is on the first steps of the long march out of the darkness. How far down the road he will get is yet to be seen. It is interesting that he seems to be interacting a lot more, and a lot more respectfully, with outspoken conservatives. I would really like to see him in an exchange, preferably a long discussion, with people like David Horowitz or Ron Radosh. Or Jonathan Haidt. Or Bari Weiss.
It is late in the game, but Mahar is shifting his ground. There are no guarantees, but we can hope it continues. He is at least no longer willing to parrot stupid lies because the hacks demand conformity. And he is increasingly willing to challenge some of the lies. That’s a start.
If he was an academic at a woke university, he would already be a marked man. I’d like to see a guest suggest that to him. If I met him, I would ask (among other things) if he’s ever read “Witness.”
Bill just is starting to realize his days of being a useful idiot might get him put against the wall when his former friends take charge.
Commies and Islamists are natural allies. They both want the same thing and will wait to fight it out once they eliminate their mutual enemies.
They divide history into two camps—Victims (people of color) and victimizers (White People, jews etc...) They forget that Chinese and Japanese were also victimizers as savage with the people they ruled as any European Empire. (Look at the History of the Mongols) If you doubt it look at the History of Korea (ruled by Japan) or Vietnam (Once ruled by China) Just ask any Tibetan today. No, it fits an agenda so this brand of History is taught. Worry not, things will right themselves BUT the west has to become less tolerant, put on the iron gloves again and get back to business.
