Will Bill Maher be the next Joe Rogan? Will the left demand that he is next to be canceled after his recent statements about stopping the authoritarian COVID madness.
“It’s time to do what a growing list of countries have done and announced we’re going back to something more like normal—beginning with recognizing that what we’re doing to kids is unnecessary and horrible—and I don’t even like kids!” Maher said.
The leftist “Real Time” host blasted the medical establishment for the ever-changing and confusing information government agency officials have spewed throughout the COVID pandemic. He also railed against the cancel culture that attacks and silences anyone who dares to question the approved narrative and proclaimed that it was time to do what “a growing list of countries have done” and go back to something more like normal.
The HBO “Real Time” host noted on Friday’s episode that “making kids, who have a COVID survivability rate of 99.98% mask up like bandits? Unfortunately, the thing that is getting stolen is their education, their sanity, and their social skills.”
“A study this week from a professor at Johns Hopkins concluded that the lockdowns we all suffered through had little impact in reducing COVID deaths. Okay, that’s kind of a big one to get wrong,” he asserted. “Last July, President Biden said, ‘You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.’ Well, I already knew that was wrong then, and now we all do. The former Director of the CDC, Robert Redfield, believes COVID originated in a lab, and now our intelligence agencies agree, it might have. But for months on social media, it was banned to even discuss it.”
“Look, I’m not saying the medical establishment isn’t trying to figure s**t out, or that they’re corrupt — although there is some of that. But how about just wrong? Wrong a lot. Wrong about HIV, wrong about lockdowns, wrong about kids, wrong about how you couldn’t get it if you were vaccinated,” he said.
“Remember washing our packages?” Maher asked. “And there’s never been any research showing that outdoor transmission is likely or common, yet L.A. County says we’re still supposed to mask up for big outdoor events like we’ll be at the Super Bowl…. well, supposed to…” he said, referring to photos that NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson posted on social media of him posing with California Governor Gavin Newsom posing and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in clear defiance of the public health order requiring masks at large outdoor events.

“I’m just asking, how much wrong do you get to be while still holding the default setting for people who represent the science? Eat eggs, then don’t, then do. Take aspirin, then don’t, then do. The food pyramid, really? Bread and milk every day? Okay, you do you,” Maher said.
The audience applauded wildly.
“Fifteen years ago, they were recommending trans fats. Now, they’re illegal, just like almost a hundred prescription drugs which were once called safe and effective and then yanked off the market because they were not,” the comedian noted seriously.
“We’ve had this problem in medicine for a long time. The same people who, in private care, always say, get a second opinion want to allow only one in the public debate. But plainly, the medical-industrial complex has not earned the right to claim monopoly status on information about this virus or medicine in general,” he concluded. “Yes, free speech has allowed people to hear misinformation sometimes. And a lot of it was yours.”
In his rant, Maher points out that obesity is a major COVID risk factor. Maybe the focus should be on giving our kids healthier foods and making sure they get regular exercise instead of locking them down and forcing them to be vaccinated and masked.
