The “woke” mob is dangerously out of control.
Even people on the Left are beginning to take notice.
And Bill Maher went on one rant that has liberals fuming.
Old-school liberal Bill Maher is getting fed up with the “woke” left.
Maher is still prone to Trump Derangement Syndrome and taking potshots at Republicans, but he’s one of the few public figures on the Left willing to stand up to the insane cancel mob.
Maher recently spoke out against media hysteria about the Wuhan virus, and now he’s taking “woke” millennials to task for their cozy feelings toward communism and other abhorrent ideas.
During a monologue on his HBO show, Maher didn’t hold back:

Even Maher and his left-wing audience see it.
The “woke” hysteria is an outgrowth of the university departments being run by literal Stalinists in many instances.
If that sounds like hyperbole, it’s not.
Renowned theater director Andrei Serban, who fled the brutal dictatorship of Romanian communist Nicolae Ceauşescu, left his teaching position at Columbia University because of the toxic culture of political correctness.
“I felt like I was living under communism again,” said Serban.
That’s just one example; there are too many to list.
A survey of professors at Harvard showed that 80% identified as “liberal” or “very liberal,” 19% identified as “moderate,” and only 1% identified as “conservative.”
Only seven professors surveyed said they were conservative.
Other universities—with very few exceptions—have the same ideological breakdown.
That means the university echo chambers become more radical over time, and anyone who doesn’t toe the line cannot join.
This problem burst to the fore about five years ago, and most people shrugged it off and said the students would become more moderate when they get out into the “real world.”
Well, that hasn’t happened.
It turns out the “woke” have infested many institutions.
The bad ideas from the universities have trickled down to K-12, news media, entertainment media, government, and various organizations.
Far-left propaganda is coming fast and furious from multiple angles, but people are slowly beginning to reject it.
Maher is sounding the alarm for the people on the left side of the aisle who refuse to receive the message when it’s coming from conservatives.
The “woke” cultists are ascending, and it’s going to take all hands on deck to oppose them.
More liberals like Maher are going to have to speak out, or they will eventually get devoured by the mob.
