‘Is that cool now? To choose a totalitarian police state over America?’ Bill Maher slams US-born Olympic gold medal skier Eileen Gu for choosing to compete for China

  • ‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher criticized Olympic gold medal skier Eileen Gu, 18, for defecting to China’s team amid rampant human rights violations in the country
  • He also criticized the NBA, basketballer LeBron James and action star John Cena for ‘kowtowing’ to China’s regime
  • ‘Is that cool now, to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America?’
  • ‘Because the “woke” now see race first and everything else never, fear of being accused of racism has given a free pass on human rights abuses to China’

‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher struck out at American celebrities who he said ‘kowtow’ to China on Friday night, including California-born Olympic skier Eileen Gu who is competing for China, her mother’s homeland, in this year’s Beijing Olympics. 

‘Is that cool now, to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America,’ he asked, kicking off his monologue. 

‘The Olympics pretends to only be about sports but of course, the games have always been a bit of a proxy war for which country has the best system. 

‘And by choosing Team China, Eileen Gu became a living symbol of China’s triumph over the west, which wouldn’t bother me so much if I thought China had triumphed over us in the ways that really matter. But they haven’t.’

*** end quote ***

More and more, either I’m changing or Bill Maher is becoming more “libertarian”.

I was stunned that anyone would go over to China for the “genocide olympics”.

Give Bill Maher credit for calling out a “turncoat”.  Maybe that’s harsh.  But, I don’t understand the decision, unless it came with a big cash stipend.

Sigh!
