Maher reveals his support for part of Trump's education agenda

Believe it or not, liberal comedian and talk show host Bill Maher has found something to agree with about former President Donald Trump.

During the latest episode of his HBO talk show, “Real Time,” he criticized most of Trump's 2024 agenda, but admitted that he at least supports some of what the former president has planned for the education department


“[Trump] he says that under his administration, the schools will teach students to love their country, not to hate their country as they are now being taught,” he said.

“I have to say, this one doesn't bother me that much, because that's what I see when I see these progressive kids demonstrating for Hamas, the most illiberal people in the world, that 'hey, we're going to give America its rise; stupid america They have been indoctrinated that way,” he added.

He went on to quote the recent words of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

“Schumer gave a speech this week. He said 'anti-Semitism' is a five-alarm fire that needs to be put out.” This is the highest ranking Jewish politician we have ever had in the country. He talked about when Jews hear chants like 'from the river to the sea,' you understand that that means we're going to be wiped out by any means necessary,” Maher said.

“Vulnerabilities in the party, the Democrats have a big generational split on this issue. The kids seem to be with the Palestinians, and the older generation seems to be with Israel,” he added.

Exactly right.

However, Maher's guest, Democratic strategist James Carville, appeared to try to defend Democrats by pointing to Trump's “good people on both sides” statement after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

We remember that the Democrats had used the statement to accuse Trump of defending the white supremacists who had also attended the demonstration and killed a demonstrator.

But to his credit, Maher's other guest, conservative podcaster Dave Rubin, pushed back, explaining to Carville that Trump hadn't meant white supremacists when he'd talked about “good people on both sides.”

All this comes about a month after Maher first spoke out against far-left Democrats' embrace of Hamas. Speaking on his show in late October, he directly criticized the disturbing “indoctrination” now taking place in American schools.

“There are few, if any, positives to come out of what happened in Israel, but one of them is opening America's eyes to how higher education has become an indoctrination into a stew of bad ideas. Among them, the simplistic notion that the world is a binary place where everyone is oppressor or oppressed,” he said at the time.

“They have convinced themselves that Israel is the most repressive regime in history because they have no knowledge of history or even the desire to know it. And the real story doesn't appear in its intersectionality of gender identity politics and class,” she added.

He went on to bash college presidents who have remained silent in the face of all this anti-Semitism, as well as “woke” college professors who have embraced it.

“The fact that the presidents of universities to whom they usually speak about anything could not find their voice to condemn the worst attack since the Holocaust. There is much to be said about who really controls the universities and why, if the ignorance is a disease, Harvard Yard is Wuhan's wet market,” he said.

“It's not that universities didn't always have professors with radical beliefs. I know. I used to sell them weed. But the reason disparaging Israel became practically a requirement of the American left is the colleges, the elite colleges, the mouth of the river where this and all kinds of left radical illiberal, yes, illiberal nonsense that all blacks put up with, i.e. segregated dormitories. , segregated graduation ceremonies and orientation programs that take place on hundreds of campuses is illiberal,” he continued.

“So is racism against Asian applicants and persecuting off-campus speakers. When the First Amendment watchdog group Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression began ranking colleges based on their commitment to free expression and research, Harvard came in last. There's only one set of acceptable opinions on campus, and it's very controlled,” he added, using an example to illustrate the intolerance at Harvard.” added.
