Oct 22, 2023 ~ Bill Maher explains why many colleges like Harvard have become worthless cesspools of left wing garbage.
"As an Ivy League graduate who knows the value of a liberal education, I have one piece of advice for the youth of America. Don’t go to college. And if you absolutely have to go, don’t go to an elite college, because as recent events have shown, it just makes you stupid. There are few if any positives to come out of what happened in Israel, but one of them opening America's eyes to how higher education has become indoctrination, among them the simplistic notion that the world is a binary place where everyone is either an oppressor or oppressed. In the case of Israel, oppressors being babies and bubas. The same students who will tell you that words are violence and silence is violence were very supportive when Hamas terrorists went on a rape and murder rampage worthy of the Vikings. They knew where to point the fingers; at the murdered, and then it was off to ethics class."
"Siding with terrorists," "34 student groups at Harvard signed a letter saying 'the apartheid regime is the only one to blame,' proving they don't know what constitutes apartheid. They don't know much of anything, actually. But it doesn’t deter them from having an opinion. They’ve convinced themselves Israel is the most repressive regime in history because they have no knowledge of history or even a desire to know it. And actual history doesn’t come up in their intersectionality of politics and gender queer identities class.”
“If ignorance is a disease, Harvard Yard is the Wuhan wet market. The reason why despising Israel became pretty much a requirement of the American Left is colleges, elite colleges, the mouth of the river from which this and all manner of radical Left illiberal, yes, illiberal nonsense flows. Supporting all-black, that is segregated dorms, segregated graduation ceremonies, and orientation programs, which occur on hundreds of campuses is illiberal. So is the racism against Asian applicants and chasing speakers off of campus. When the First Amendment watchdog group Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression began ranking colleges based on their commitment to free speech and inquiry, Harvard came in dead last. There is only one set of acceptable opinions on campus, and it’s policed hard." "Elite schools should no longer be called elite. Just say expensive." Oddly, after excoriating Democrats and the left, Maher ends up attacking Republicans, perhaps annoyed that they figured all of this out long before he did?
