It’s always a strange feeling when leftists end up saying something that I’ve been saying for years.
Of course, he’s saying it in the reverse, but he’s saying it.
Comedian and late-night host Bill Maher said the United States has “lost” to China in the “battle for the 21st century.”
During “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, Maher argued that China was becoming more dominant on the world stage as the U.S. argues over “culture wars.”
“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—,” Maher said, referencing the controversy surrounding six of Seuss’s books that were pulled by Dr. Seuss Enterprises over racist imagery.
“If anything, they are not a silly people. They are as serious as a prison fight,” he said.
They definitely don’t care about Dr. Seuss. Asians are very similar to autists in their thinking, and they just wouldn’t understand why anyone would be offended by a silly portrayal of their small eyes.
If they knew about this character, they would probably make stickers, t-shirts and keychains of it.
Maher criticized China’s authoritarian government over controversies surrounding Hong Kong’s autonomy and the nation’s treatment of Uyghur Muslims. However, the host went on to argue that China is able to quickly develop and solve problems as the U.S. debates partisan issues.
“On a national level, we’ve been having infrastructure week every week since 2009, but we never do anything,” Maher said. “Half the county is having a never-ending woke competition deciding whether Mr. Potato Head has a d—, and the other half believes that we have to stop the lizard people because they’re eating babies.”
Maher also compared China’s ability to develop its infrastructure quickly compared with U.S., noting that it took 16 years for the Big Dig in Boston to be completed.
“China once put up a 57-story skyscraper in 19 days. They demolished and rebuilt the Sanyuan Bridge in Beijing in 43 hours,” Maher said. “We binge-watch. They binge-build.”
Maher hailed China’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, pointing out that it built a massive quarantine center in 10 days early in the pandemic that was hardly used.
“They were back to throwing raves in swimming pools while we were stuck at home surfing the dark web for black-market Charmin,” he said.
“We’re not losing to China. We lost,” Maher said. “The returns just haven’t all come in yet.”
Maher is half-Jewish, though I don’t think he was raised in that culture.
Nonetheless, he’s been a war hawk since forever, and that’s the direction he’s clearly going with this.
What the West has done does not make any sense at all, in terms of any long-term strategy. It only makes sense in terms of Jewish sadism.
It would have worked out though if it weren’t for China. The arrogance of transferring such massive wealth to China and just assuming they would just work in sweatshops and then turn over control to Taiwan is monumental, and just demonstrates that there was never any real attempt to understand just how alien the Asian mind is.
The Western Evil Empire – Maher can say “we,” but I won’t – has effectively already lost to China, and it’s not really clear who realizes that. The current plan apparently is to start a world war. The window for that is rapidly closing, however.
I don’t have the fear that most people have of China. I think it is a weird way for this to all unfold, but the Chinese are not sadistic or perverse in the way that our current elite is, so it would frankly be very difficult to come up with a scenario where rule by China is not preferable to what we have now.
I’m not shilling for China. I’m just saying China has real and true freedom and we do not.
No Chinaman ever called me “goy.”
