On Friday’s HBO show “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said while some conservatives want to justify the past, “many liberals also want to abuse history to control the present,” acting as a “capacity for brutality” through the present. White matter”.
Maher began by saying, “The way we teach our children history is a big controversy these days when liberals accuse conservatives of justifying the past, and sometimes it’s true, sometimes they do. But many liberals like to abuse history to control the present, and last month a scientist named James Sweet got in trouble for encouraging them to do just that. He criticizes a phenomenon known as “presentation”, which means judging all people in the past by the standards of the present. It’s stupid to believe that people who lived 100, 500 or 1000 years ago really needed to know more. It’s like when you were ten, now you’re mad at yourself for not knowing what you know.”
He added: “Did Columbus commit atrocities? Of course. But back then, people were generally cruel. Anyone who could afford it had a slave, including people of color. Judging by the way people talk about slavery these days, you might think it’s a purely American thing that we invented in 1619. But slavery has been the rule throughout history, not the exception: Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, British, early Americans, until R. Kelly. The Bible was a guide for slave owners. The word “slave” comes from a Slav because many Slavs were enslaved and were as white as the Hallmark Canal. Who do you think gathered slaves from deep in Africa to sell to slave traders? Africans who also kept their own slaves. We tend to turn other members of our species into bitches. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: people are not good people, and the ability to be cruel is human, not white. It’s true, even if it doesn’t fit the current narrative.”
Maher continued: “But in today’s world, truth is the truth that should apologize when it contradicts the narrative. Awakening is like a magic moral time machine in 1066 where you judge everything as you think and you always win. … Yes, that professor was right, it’s just a way of congratulating yourself that you’re better than George Washington because you have a gay friend and he doesn’t. But if he were alive now, he would be alive too. And if you [were] You were alive then, you are not. Portland public schools now plan to teach children that the idea that gender is often binary was brought here by white colonists. The textbook states: “When the United States was colonized by white settlers, their views on gender issues were forced upon the people who lived there.” Even Star Trek wouldn’t try this story where they open a planet and give them private baths. It’s as if they’ve finally discovered a unified theory of awakening that includes all their ideas about race, homosexuals, gender, and colonialists. … There is a play going on in London right now called “I, Joan” … and it depicts Joan of Arc … as non-binary with the pronouns “they/they”. It doesn’t make much sense when you think about it, because Jeanne is French, so she speaks a language where every noun is either masculine or feminine.
