“Real Time” host Bill Maher took Democrats to task on the 21st season premiere of his HBO show over how they have “completely lost control” over schools across the nation.
“I thought a great subject to talk about would be schools, because they’re in the news a lot,” Maher began the panel discussion on Friday. “We live in a prison yard in this country, which is everything is tribal. And like anything that has to do with schools or education is something really the Democrats have to answer for because they control it. I mean, when you look at the Democratic Convention, it’s like three-quarters of them are teachers. My sister’s a teacher. I’m a big defender of teachers, but what’s going on in schools is outrageous, and somebody needs to answer for it.”
Maher highlighted a recent incident in Virginia where a six-year-old brought his mother’s gun to school and shot his teacher and how the school librarian told the press how “routine” teachers, students and other staff are assaulted.
“How did we completely lose control?” Maher asked. “How could any kid learn in this atmosphere when you cannot even survive? And these are all schools. This is not just inner-city schools. I hear this anecdotally from people. We’ve completely lost control of our schools.”
Mahers said parents are the “problem” but “Nobody wants to go after” them because they’re voters.
Representative Nancy Mace, R-S.C., said her kids labeled her a “bad mom” after she took away their iPhones. She said social media, and sepcifically TikTok, is “literally ruining our kids’ brains.”
Substack writer Andrew Sullivan added, “One thing we used to tell kids was that there is someone in authority. And at some point, you have to take note of that person in authority.”
“Children who are taught there’s no such thing as authority, the most important thing is expressing yourself at all times, are never held responsible for anything or constantly being excused for everything, they’re gonna end up this way. They need direction. People need authority.”
“Especially kids.” Maher said.
“Why does a four-year-old come in, instead of teaching them the colors, you’re telling them, ‘Pick your pronoun’? Where on earth did that come from? And who told us it was going to be imposed on children?” Sullivan asked. “More and more, when you look at this curriculum, it’s all about that stuff. It’s all about identity, it’s all about being queer or trans. Children cannot understand that stuff, not in kindergarten.”
“And you say that as a queer,” Maher said.
“I don’t want to teach five-year-olds about being gay. I think wait a little bit, and they’ll pick it up anyway. It’s not like they cannot watch the TV,” Sullivan responded. “They’re not telling them that, they’re telling them something worse. They’re telling that people can choose to be a boy or a girl or neither or both or something else entirely. That is a lie. You cannot. And it’s done in order to placate certain special interests in Washington, mainly the LGBTQIA+ people who’ve also been captured by the far left. We should say no to this.”
“I just don’t understand why this is the hill the Democratic Party wants to die on,” Maher said.
“Because they’re too scared. Both parties are too scared,” Sullivan claimed. “They’re bullied by the extreme right, they’re bullied by the extreme left, and Nobody has the balls to say no.”
Maher opined that “most people” who agree are “liberal people” who accept the transgender community, but that actually being transgender is “rare.”
“We all seem to have to pretend that we’re born- I don’t know, jump ball,” Maher said. “It’s just bulls—.”
The panel went on to blast the way kids are being told they can “identify as a tree” or that “boys can menstruate” and “girls can have penises.”
“It sometimes gets to me when the younger ones tell me that I’m the dinosaur,” Sullivan said, referring to the outrage he’s met with for opposing woke ideology. “Do you know what we of our generation went through as gay men or women? Do you know what we really did?… Do you know the actual oppression of dying in the streets, of dying of AIDS, of fighting for basic civil rights and how they turn around and tell us you are an old has-been, you need to just go away, and not only that you hate transgender people. ‘F— you’ is what I’d say.”
“But I’m tired of it. I’m tired of it. And the way they cannot debate you. They say immediately you hate people. I don’t hate people. I would cherish a transgender kid. I just don’t want a little gay kid to be told suddenly he might be a girl inside. I don’t want kids who are not able to make these kinds of decisions decide to have medication, medicalization, sterilization, drugs before they even hit puberty. It’s just wrong.”
Mace pointed out that some parents in South Carolina were “bragging” about starting their kids’ transition at ages four to six. She then brought up Chloe Cole, who had her breasts removed at 15 because she thought she had gender dysphoria before realizing at 16 that she’d made a mistake.
“And I think the Biden administration is all-in on that,” Maher responded.
Sullivan said that even as other countries and some in the media are promoting caution when it comes to transitioning, the Biden administration calls such treatment “essential.”
“I don’t think Biden is behind this, but he’s certainly controlled by people who are,” Sullivan said.
“Well, medical schools are behind this actually,” Mace replied. “We read stories. They’re training these medical students to say that puberty blockers are reversible.”
“And that’s, and this is coming from the ‘We’re the science people,’” Maher said.
