Bill Maher blasts leftists who try to rewrite history to ‘control the present’ narrative: ‘Being woke is like a magic moral time machine’

“Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday’s episode blasted leftists who attempt to rewrite history in order to “control the present” narrative — a concept known as “presentism.” Maher explained that presentism “means judging everyone in the past by the standards of present. It’s the belief that people who lived 100 or 500 or 1,000 years ago really should’ve known better.”

Maher noted that American Historical Society President James Sweet “caught hell” from leftists over an essay of his in which he criticized presentism — and then went to bat for Sweet by dismantling woke pronouncements leftists typically make to prop up their morality as compared to people of the past.

He touched upon slavery as an example: “Everybody who could afford one had a slave — including people of color. The way people talk about slavery these days, you’d think it was a uniquely American thing that we invented in 1619. But slavery throughout history has been the rule, not the exception.”

Maher added that Africans gathered other Africans to sell to slave traders and “kept their own slaves” as well.

“Humans are not good people,” he quipped.

Maher added that “the capacity for cruelty is a human thing, not a white thing. That’s the truth, even though it doesn’t jibe with the current narrative. But in today’s world, when truth conflicts with narrative, it’s the truth that has to apologize. Being woke is like a magic moral time machine where you judge everybody against what you imagine what you would have done in 1066, and you always win.”

He added that presentism is “just a way to congratulate yourself about being better than George Washington because you have a gay friend, and he didn’t. But if he was alive today, he would, too; and if you were alive then, you wouldn’t.”

Maher also pointed out a 2019 movie “The Aeronauts” — about scientists who broke the record for the highest balloon altitude. While both scientists who broke the record were men, Maher noted that in the movie the scientists were portrayed by a man and a woman. When asked why that change was made to the historical record, the director replied that “representation is important,” Maher told his audience.

Megyn Kelly agreed with Maher’s presentism assessment, saying that he “nails it”:

Seething Anger over ISIS

Slave Trade

It’s not often I get so angry I can hardly see straight, but this is one of those times – certainly one of the topics that just sets me to think hellish thoughts. This has been going on for a while now, but yesterday morning, Glenn Beck, on his morning radio show reminded me of it. It was regarding a document ISIS released last October or November (2014). The document was an auction price list for captured females to be sold to scumbags ISIS members.

Those to be sold are Yazidi and Christian girls and women from towns ISIS has captured. ISIS fighters would overtake a village or town and force the men and boys to convert. If they refuse, they will be slaughtered, leaving only the girls and women. The females are then rounded up and marched back to the nearest auction site and sold.

For a period there were no set prices, so ISIS members could bid anything they wanted – whatever the “market” dictated. But according to the document “the market to sell women and spoils of war has been experiencing a significant decrease, which has adversely affected ISIS revenue and financing of the Mujaheddin.”

Therefore ISIS leadership decided to impose price controls. They also dictated that anyone violating the controls would be executed.

The United Nations reports that not all children are sold as sex slaves. Some, like those with abnormalities such as retardation or reduced mental capacity are to be used as unwitting suicide bombers. They are chosen because it is unlikely they understand what they are tasked to do. It’s just pure evil!

The price list for sex slaves is as follows. They are classified as merchandise, not girls, women or even human beings – just merchandise.

The prices are posted an Iraqi dinar.

  • Women age 40 to 50 = 50,000 dinar ($42),
  • 30 to 40 years = 75,000 ($63),
  • 20 to 30 = 100,000 ($84),
  • 10 to 20 = 150,000 ($127), and ages
  • 1 to 9 = 200,000 dinar ($169).

Yes folks – not even infants and toddlers are spared the atrocity.

There is however a limit of three sex slaves per bidder, with exception to foreign sales to Turks, Syrians and Gulf states. That’s where most of the fighters are so naturally they will need more. After a great battle they need to blow off some steam and unwind by raping and savaging young Christian girls.

The document adds that the source of this decision for price controls is the ISIS “Commerce Department.” The Commerce Department? As if they are fixing the price of a bushel of wheat or a pound of sugar. There are currently two full-fledged auction sites. One in Mosul Iraq and one in their capital Raqqa Syria, and there is a constant flow of “merchandise” in both locations.

unable-bear-constant-rape-torture-yazidi-womanbeing-used-sex-slave-by-isis-has-begged-westThe women and girls are shrouded from head to toe, shackled together and marched into the marketplace to be auctioned. I have seen video of the proceedings and they are appalling. Cattle are treated better. The wails of the victims to be sold are bloodcurdling.

Over the years, I’ve become more libertarian regarding war and foreign entanglements. Like the founders, I believe if it’s not in our national interest, if it doesn’t concern us directly – stay out of it. Protect the homeland and its citizens – that’s all.

But I believe this particular atrocity transcends national interest. This is a sin against all mankind. It is and will be a stain on our humanity. Frankly, if we, the United States of America, who have the wherewithal to act to stop this don’t do anything, what does it say about us?

I’m not sure what can be done, but I bet there are at least 20 to 30,000 veterans in this country that would be more than happy to go mercenary to stop this. Count me in.OARLogo Picture6

Rangel: Tea Party Does Not ‘Believe the Union Won’ Civil War (Video)

rangel013 020414 Rangel: Tea Party Does Not Believe the Union Won Civil War (Video)

 

During the Congressional Black Caucus’ special order hour on the House floor Monday night, Rep. Charles B. Rangel hammered the tea party not only for embracing the Confederate flag, but also for hating President Barack Obama “as much as their [Dixiecrat] predecessors probably hated Abe Lincoln.”

“[In] some parts of the United States of America they don’t believe that the Union won. The reason I come to that conclusion is that … I have never seen so many Confederate flags that represent groups that are proud of the fact that they call themselves the Tea Party,” the New York Democrat said during his 10-minute floor speech, referring to an event he attended with President Ulysses S. Grant’s great-great-grandson. “They’re from that part of the country that the states owned slaves.” Really 01

Rangel, the second most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus, has pushed the White House to do more to combat poverty and inequality. The Senate recently passed an extension of unemployment benefits and there are new signs  the House may take up legislation on an immigration overhaul.
