Bill Maher compares ‘woke’ mob to enforcers of Mao’s Cultural Revolution


More and more, governments and ‘media’ companies are censoring (directly or indirectly) views they do not agree with.

While most of this has come from left-leaning sources, one left-leaning pundit is seeing some of the dangers of this:

February 4, 2023 5:25 pm

HBO host Bill Maher compared “woke” mobs on Twitter to the Red Guard of the 1966 Cultural Revolution in China Friday.

“I asked ChatGPT, ‘Are there any similarities between today’s woke revolution and Chairman Mao’s cultural revolution of the 1960s?’” Maher said. “And it wrote back, ‘How long do you have?’”

“We do have our own Red Guard here, but they do their rampaging on Twitter,” Maher added, …

Maher also compared forced reeducation in Mao’s China to “freshman orientation” at American universities. …

“The problem with communism and some very recent ideologies here at home, is that they think you can change reality by screaming at it,” Maher said. “That you can bend human nature by holding your breath.”

Maher also called out those who opposed efforts to restrict biological males from competing in women’s sports.

“I’ve spent three decades on TV mocking Republicans who said climate change is a theory,” Maher concluded. “And now I got to say, ‘You know what else is just a theory? Biology.’”

As far as Twitter goes, it again pulled Project Veritas for exposing Pfizer:

Project Veritas LOCKED out of Twitter after confronting YouTube exec over ban on Pfizer expose

“Project Veritas was surprised to learn of this temporary lock out,” Project Veritas’ Mario Balaban told The Post Millennial, “as we were conducting journalism as we always do — by asking questions to powerful people.”

February 3, 2023

Project Veritas was locked out of their recently regained Twitter account on Friday afternoon. This after having posted a video confronting a YouTube executive for striking videos wherein Veritas had confronted a Pfizer director from their platform. …

In that video, Christian Hartsock confronts the Global Head of Trust and Safety Matt Halprin to find out why they banned the videos with the Pfizer director from their platform. Hartsock asked pointed questions about how much Pfizer is paying YouTube to run cover for them. …

Project Veritas’ videos exposing a Pfizer director show him discussing research done by the pharmaceutical giant into gain-of-function research, and the potential impacts on women’s menstrual cycles after taking the Covid-19 vaccine.

Veritas, which had been banned from the platform for more than a year before being reinstated by Elon Musk, is one of many accounts that have recently come under fire by the purportedly free speech-based platform in recent weeks.

The message sent by Twitter to Veritas reads: “We’ve temporarily limited some of your account features,” and goes on to say that the account “violated the Twitter Rules.”

In general, the ‘woke’ crowd, which normally includes most of the media, asserts the following are misinformation or otherwise wrong:

  1. Life begins at conception.
  2. LGBTQ people can change their sexual orientation, and should be helped if they want it to change.
  3. People of all ethnic backgrounds can be hateful racists.
  4. Spontaneous generation of life is impossible.
  5. XX chromosomes make one a woman, whereas XY chromosomes make one a man.
  6. Heterosexual intercourse is normal.
  7. Acquired immunity to COVID is not inferior to vaccine immunity.
  8. If masks are required for citizens, then protesters and those who wish to enter the USA illegally should also wear them.
  9. Pornography harms society.

Yet, every statement above is true and ‘follows the science.’ Big Tech will banish/cancel people who make several of those statements.

YouTube has removed/cancelled two of our videos related to items 2 and 7 on the above list.

Related to the woke cancelling crowd, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


Woke: Follow the True Science

What is being ‘woke’ supposed to mean? Do the woke have ”an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those related to civil and human rights” or are they perhaps hypocrites as an article in Newsweek suggested? What about religious rights? What about science? Are the following, which are held by much of the non-woke, scientifically/factually true: 1. Life begins at conception. 2. LGBTQ people can change their sexual orientation, and should be helped if they want it to change. 3. People of all ethnic backgrounds can be hateful racists. 4. Spontaneous generation of life is impossible. 5. XX chromosomes make one a woman, whereas XY chromosomes make one a man. 6. Heterosexual intercourse is normal. 7. Acquired immunity to COVID is not inferior to vaccine immunity. 8. If masks are required for citizens, than protesters and those who wish to enter the USA illegally should also wear them. 9. Pornography harms society. Is the Bible true? Could the woke generation been warned about in scripture? Should you join a crowd in evil? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.

Perhaps I should also add that political views are also subject to cancellation. It used to be that media companies in the USA (like radio and television stations) had to have some type of balance in showing various views. However, in the case of cable channels, they got exempted. Notice something that recently happened:

February 3, 2023

AT&T’s DirecTV, with its cancellation of Newsmax, shows the “clear repression that we’ve all feared under a Sovietization of the American media,” best-selling author and podcaster Dr. Michael Savage tells Newsmax.

“Distribution of any product, whether it be news, sports, entertainment, or a toothbrush, the distribution of any product is key,” Savage told Newsmax’s “Prime News” on Thursday night. “Those who control distribution, such as in this case, DirecTV, control the dialogue when it comes to Newsmax and what shows they’re going to run.”

And when DirecTV canceled Newsmax on Jan. 24, it wasn’t because of the free market, but instead was an example of “Sovietization,” Savage said.

“They’re using the false canard that it is the free market, making that their determination, which is proven false by the fact that they pay fees to networks that have much lower ratings than Newsmax,” he added.

Do not think that it is only political views that many are trying to cancel.

There is a global movement to censor.

There is a building global movement of intolerance to those that hold to biblical views on many topics.

Throughout the church age,  persecutions sometimes included economic problems (cf. Revelation 13:16-17), verbal harassment, torture, and/or threat of death, often causing them to flee. The same things face Christians in this 21st century.

And while some are sounding alarms about what is happening in the USA–which claims to be a bastion for free speech and tolerance–something worse is going to rise in Europe.

Related to that, the Continuing Church of God put out this sermon on its ContinuingCOG channel:


Did Jesus says that persecutions would come at the end times? Does the persecution from the Beast in Daniel 11:38-35 point to persecution of the Philadelphian Christian remnant? Are those remaining from Thyatira, Sardis, and Laodicea going to be subject to persecution from the Beast for 42 months, 3 1/2 years, also called a time, times, and half a time? Do both biblical and Greco-Roman prophecies point to some of God’s people getting killed and burnt? Could warnings about “Jewish” sects possible point to end time Christians? Will the Beast use deceit? Might some who “fall away” betray the most faithful Christians? What are some Greco-Roman warnings about the ‘secret sect’? Do Greco-Roman prophecies point to the Great Monarch persecuting God’s most faithful? Are there two periods of persecution prophesied in Daniel 7:25? Is there a persecution during the beginning of sorrows, followed by the opening of the 5th seal of Revelation and the start of the Great Tribulation? Is there a place of protection in the wilderness for the Philadelphian Christians? Were religious people dwelling in caves warned about by a Roman Catholic in the 12th century? What will happen to those who get the “mark of the Beast”? What have Christians been persecuted before in the past? What are some of the things Christians will be persecuted from in the future? How are Christians supposed to handle persecution?

Here is a link to the sermon: Christian Persecution from the Beast.

In modern times, government officials, academics, Big Tech, and many media companies in various lands have taken positions against the Bible, biblical morality, and speaking biblical truths.

More persecution is coming–and some of those will be for the very reasons they did before–that real Christians will tell the truth and ‘contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints’ (Jude 3).

Do not think things will continue fine and improve along those lines.
