Real Time host Bill Maher slammed ‘woke liberals’ for complaining about America by teaching Americans what ‘real oppression’ looks like on his show on Friday night.
Maher slammed Americans for constantly complaining about how America is ‘so oppressed, sexist, and homophobic’ by highlighting what his viewers should learn from Afghanistan.
‘Watching the s**t go down in Afghanistan has reminded me of all the conversations I’ve ever had with an immigrant, almost all of which – if we got to really talking – included the notion of “Oh you people have no idea, all you do is b****h about and bad mouth your own country, but if you knew about the country I came from, you’re stop s***ting on your own,”‘ he said.
Real Time host Bill Maher slammed ‘woke liberals’ for not understanding ‘real oppression’ and said Americans need to learn from Afghanistan
He said professors not agreeing with students and a former president suing over a joke isn’t oppression and that Americans need to ‘ask their maid’ about real oppression
He drew comparisons to his own life when he had ‘two presidents up my a**.’
Former President Donald Trump sued him for $5million over a joke comparing him to an orangutan and former President George W. Bush’s press secretary Ari Fleischer told him to ‘watch what they [comedians] said’ in a press conference.
He admitted these instances weren’t ‘pleasant,’ but he was grateful he knew he would be safe throughout the whole experience.
He told his viewers: ‘Neither experience was pleasant, but I never had to worry about being dragged until I’m dead behind a Toyota Tacoma. Have a little perspective about the things we howl about here.’

He mocked ‘woke liberals’ for being angry their professor didn’t agree with them and that the only people who lived without water in this country ‘live in California,’ and the only ones who starve are actors for a role.
He continued listing real-world problems where women couldn’t leave their homes without permission from a guardian because they would be harassed or in danger, and said people were killed at astronomical rates in Honduras and the Philippines.
‘I’m sorry your professor said something you didn’t like. That wouldn’t be a problem with the Taliban because you’re not allowed to go to school. In Saudi Arabia, grown women can be jailed for doing things we think of as routine without the permission of a male guardian.
‘China rounds you if you’re the wrong religion and puts you in camps. More children in Burkina Faso work than are in school. Only five per cent of Burundians have electricity. The homicide rate in Honduras is eight times what it is here. The inflation rate is in Venezuela is 2,719 per cent. The Philippines in the last five years has put to death 27,000 low-level drug dealers, my old job,’ he said.
‘In North Korea, people starve to death. The only people who starve here are doing it for a role and the only people who have no water live in California.
‘If you think America is irredeemable, turn on the news or get a passport and get a ticket on one of those sketchy airlines that puts its web address on the plane.’
Afghan refugees are cramming themselves into evacuation flights like sardines to escape the Taliban’s violence and oppression in Afghanistan
Recently, leaders of the Taliban have told Afghan women to stay home because ‘fighters haven’t been trained to respect them’ and before the terrorist organization overtook Kabul, women and their husbands and fathers rushed out to buy burkas to cover their whole bodies, as it was a requirement last time they took over.
The Taliban recently tortured and killed Afghan TikTok comedian Nazar Mohammad, something that hit closed to home for Maher. It stoked fear in Afghan artists about the future of intolerance and convenorship toward art and humor under the Taliban.
Images of Afghan mothers handing their babies over barbed wire to troops at Kabul airport in hopes of getting them on evacuation flights have flooded social media and news sites too as desperate parents try to save their children from life under the group.
‘There’s a reason Afghan mothers are handing their babies to us,’ Maher said on his show. ‘And we should take them. Americans, right now, should take Afghan refugees into their homes and into their neighborhoods.’

Maher claimed Americans aren’t ‘the bad guys’ and the country isn’t ‘rotten to its core’ as troops were sent over to stop oppression in Afghanistan in 2001.
‘That doesn’t make us the bad guys, we’re not the bad guys. Oppression is the bad guy,’ he said.
‘Oppressions is what we were trying to stop in Afghanistan. We failed, but any immigrant will tell you, we’ve largely succeeded here and yet the current thrush of woke ideology is that America is rotten to the core, irredeemably racist from the moment it was founded, and so oppressive, sexists, and homophobic that we can’t find a host for the Oscars or Jeopardy,’ he exclaimed.
‘Have you ever heard of honor killings? Public beheadings? Throwing gays off of roofs? Arranged marriages for minors? State-sanctioned wife beatings? Female genital mutilation? Marriage by capture? Because we have.
‘What’s the lesson of Afghanistan? Maybe it’s that everyone from the giant dorm room b****h-fest session that is the internet should take a good look at what real oppression looks like. Ask your maid, ask your Uber driver, ask the Asian woman giving you a massage.’
‘America may not be the country of your faculty lounge and Twitter dreams, but no one here tries to escape by hanging onto an airplane. No, we wait until we’re inside the plane to fight and that’s because they cut off the beverage service!’
