On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher warned the Dems that “today’s woke revolution” is very similar to China’s Cultural Revolution of the 1960s under Chairman Mao and if they can’t see that they need to be re-educated.
Maher said: “Yesterday, I asked ChatGPT, are there any similarities between today’s woke revolution and Chairman Mao’s Cultural Revolution of the 1960s? And it wrote back, how long do you have?
“Because, again, in China, we saw how a revolutionary thought he could do a page-one rewrite of humans. Mao ordered his citizens to throw off the four olds: old thinking, old culture, old customs, and old habits.
“So, your whole life went in the garbage overnight, no biggie. And those who resisted were attacked by an army of purifiers called the Red Guard, who went around the country putting dunce caps on people…who didn’t take to being a new kind of mortal being.
“A lot of pointing and shaming went on — oh, and about a million dead — and the only way to survive was to plead insanity for the crime of being insufficiently radical, then apologize and thank the state for the chance to see what a piece of shit you are, and of course, submit to re-education, or as we call it here in America, freshman orientation.

Maher reminded the left of the case of University of Illinois at Chicago Law Professor Jason Kilborn saying Kilborn had to undergo, “eight weeks of sensitivity training, weekly 90-minute sessions with a diversity trainer, and having to write five self-reflection papers, a grown-ass man, a liberal law professor.
“If you can’t see the similarities between that and the Cultural Revolution, the person who needs re-education is you.
“Yes, we do have our own Red Guard here, but they do their rampaging on Twitter.”
From the Web archive:
University of Illinois at Chicago law professor Jason Kilborn said he never could have imagined that a final exam that contained a racial insult to an imaginary woman of color in a pretend civil case would create a campus firestorm that would divide colleagues, lead to his ouster and placement on leave for more than a year.
The tenured professor’s exam question on the December 2020 quiz involved a hypothetical scenario where a Black female manager filed a work discrimination lawsuit after a meeting where colleagues called her a ‘n____’ and ‘b____,’ shorthand versions of a slur and an insult. Students in his Civil Procedures II course were asked to analyze the account of an imaginary former manager who made the profane statements.
Days after the exam, Kilborn’s boss reached out for a Zoom meeting to discuss the use of the question. The professor offered to send a note of regret to his class and had another Zoom meeting, this time with the local Black student association to discuss concerns.
Nearly a year later, Black law students held a rally and were joined by the Rev. Jesse Jackson in demanding administrators fire Kilborn.
Kilborn said his professional reputation took a steep tumble into a thorny political thicket that led him to file suit late last month in U.S. District Court in Chicago. His fall included anonymous claims that he previously referred to racial minorities as “cockroaches,” an investigation by UIC’s Office for Access and Equity that found fault with his quiz language, and a public call for his termination. While school officials disregarded the cockroach rumor, the school’s OAE office found that Kilborn’s quiz question had violated school policy and was “harassing based on race.”
The university responded by canceling all of Kilborn’s classes for that entire semester. He was barred from going to UIC’s campus, having any informal meetings with colleagues and students or participating in university events.
Before being allowed to return to law classes by fall 2022, Kilborn had to agree to satisfactory completion of a battery of required training courses that included an eight-week diversity course and weekly 90-minute sessions with a diversity “trainer,” according to his federal lawsuit.
The multicount suit also claims that five school officials denied him due process to face his accusations and improperly removed him from work, violating his First, Fifth and 14th Amendment rights.
