Bill Maher gets a lot of things right, even though it’s for the wrong reasons sometimes. On his most recent episode of ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ he went on a must-see rant excoriating the American people’s folly while declaring China has already “won.”

“Finally, a new rule: You won’t win the fight for the twenty-first century if you’re a stupid people,” Maher concluded. “And Americans are a bumbling bunch.
He added, “That’s the classic phrase from Lawrence of Arabia, when Lawrence tells his bedouin allies that as long as they stay a bunch of squabbling tribes, they’ll stay a silly people.” “Well, we’re the dumb ones now.”
“Do you know who doesn’t care that a Chinese guy stereotype exists in a Dr. Seuss book?” he inquired. “China,” says the speaker. Since they are not a foolish people, all 1.4 billion of them might send a crouching tiger flying [expletive]. They’re almost as bad as a prison brawl.”
“Look, we’re all aware that China is a bad country. They break promises about Hong Kong autonomy, imprison uighurs, and criminalize dissent, and we don’t want to be like that,” Maher continued. “But there has to be a middle ground between an oppressive government that tells everybody what to do and a democratic government that can’t do anything.”
“In two decades, China has developed 500 entire cities from the ground up, shifted the majority of their enormous population from poverty to the middle class, and largely cornered the market in 5g and pharmaceuticals,” he continued, but whether China has much of a middle class is debatable. He said, sarcastically, “Oh, they bought Africa.”
“Their new silk road initiative is the world’s largest infrastructure project,” he added, “connecting not only that continent, but large parts of Asia, Europe, and the Middle East to the people who constructed their highways, bridges, and ports.” “You better have a yen for travel these days if you want to go anywhere in the world.”

He continued, “China alone has 40 000 kilometers of high-speed rail.” “The United States of America has… none. The tram that circles the zoo is our quickest mode of transportation. California attempted but failed to construct a high-speed rail system that would link the entire state. We’re six billion dollars in debt just trying to complete the track that connects Bakersfield and Merced.
“We’ve had infrastructure week every week on a national level since 2009,” he said. “However, we never take action. Half of the nation is engaged in an endless woke argument about whether Mr. Potato Head has a penis, while the other half thinks we need to stop the lizard people from eating babies.” (Actually, the other half is lecturing the Woke about how dumb they are.)
He went on to say, “We are a silly people.” “No, except though we compromise on something as simple as getting rid of the penny. Nothing moves in this impacted colony of a nation because of the inertia, the assuaging, the graft, the lawyers, the cowardice.”
“When we see a problem, we ignore it, lie about it, argue about it, litigate it endlessly, sunset clause it, kick it down the road, and then write a bill with a half-assed solution that doesn’t take effect for another ten years. China recognizes an issue and works to resolve it. They build a dam, and we discuss its renaming.”
“That’s why their airports look like this [shows image] and ours look like this [shows La Guardia airport sign].” “It took ten years just to get two bus lines via environmental review in San Francisco,” Maher said. “The main dig, a tunnel in Boston, took 16 years, and don’t even get me started on my solar hookup [shows sign indicating it has taken 11oo+ days].”
He went on to say, “China once built a 57-story skyscraper in 19 days.” “In 43 hours, they demolished and reconstructed Beijing’s San Yuan Bridge. They binge create while we binge watch. Wuhan, the capital, constructed a quarantine center with 4,000 rooms in 10 days when COVID struck, and they barely had to use it because the disease was quickly stopped.”
“They were back to having pool parties when we were stuck at home looking for black market charmin on the dark web,” Maher added. “We didn’t lose to China; we lost to China. The returns haven’t all arrived yet.”
Maher continues to say the facts in a way that is at the very least thought-provoking. Although Maher inadvertently glamorizes China’s oppressive Communist government, he provides enough critique to demonstrate that he has little desire for the United States to become China.
If America is serious about beating China, it must first stop being silly.
