It’s been nearly two years of Covid mania and Bill Maher has finally had enough.
The HBO “Real Time” host has said for weeks that he is “over” the Covid craze, but this weekend he took time out in his show to expose the numerous lies Americans have been told about the pandemic. Watch:
“It’s time to do what a growing list of countries have done and announce we’re going back to something more like normal beginning with recognizing that what we’re doing to kids is unnecessary and horrible — and I don’t even like kids,” he said.
“But make kids who have a COVID survivability rate of 99.98% [it’s closer to 100% for healthy kids] mask up like bandits?” he said. “Unfortunately, the thing that’s getting stolen is their education, their sanity, and their social skills.”
“A study this week from a professor at John’s Hopkins concluded that the lockdowns we all suffered through had little impact in reducing COVID deaths,” he pointed out.
“Okay,” he said. “That’s kind of a big one to get wrong.”
Maher is referencing a major Johns Hopkins study that delivered a massive blow to the mainstream media and Biden administration narratives on “lockdowns.”
There has been a “full-on media blackout of the new study outlining the ineffectiveness of lockdowns to prevent COVID deaths,” Fox News reported, noting that MSNBC, CNN, NYT and WaPo have kept their audiences in the dark on the study.
“According to a Johns Hopkins University meta-analysis of several studies, lockdowns during the first COVID wave in the spring of 2020 only reduced COVID mortality by .2% in the U.S. and Europe,” Fox News added.
“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted,” the researchers wrote. “In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
On Friday, Jen Psaki attempted to blame Trump for the lockdowns, which essentially threw Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘under the bus.’
“Last July president Biden said, you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations,” Maher continued. “Well, I already knew that was wrong then. And now we all do.”
“The former director of the CDC Robert Redfield believes COVID originated in a lab and now our intelligence agencies agree: It might have,” Maher went on. “But for months on social media, it was banned to even discuss it.”
“Look, I’m not saying the medical establishment isn’t trying to figure shit out or that they’re corrupt — although there is some of that — but how about just wrong, wrong, a lot,” he continued.
“Wrong about HIV, wrong about lockdowns, wrong about kids, wrong about how you couldn’t get it if you were vaccinated,” he said. “Remember washing our packages?”
“And there’s never been research showing that outdoor transmission is likely or common,” he noted. “Yet, LA county says we’re still supposed to mask up for big outdoor events like we’ll be at the Super Bowl.”
Maher then showed images of California Governor Gavin Newsom and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcettia posing maskless at the NFC Championship game.
“Well, supposed to,” he commented. It’s all theater. Watching athletes mix it up on the court and then mask on the sideline. Not being able to touch a menu, but watching them touch my food. Maskless at dinner while sitting, but not standing. And by the way, if Applebees really cared about our health, they would make us cover our mouths after the food arrived.”
“I’m just asking how much wrong do you get to be while still holding the default setting for people who represent the science?” he asked.
In mid-January, Maher said that the Covid-19 pandemic had “just gone on too long, no one cares anymore.” He said he doesn’t want to live in a “masked paranoid world” where people “have no friends.”
Maher is now saying out loud what millions of Americans thought in 2020. Now that it’s ‘safe’ to think it out loud, he’s signaling to others it’s safe to do likewise. Those of us who actually care about science and reason don’t have that luxury. They speak the truth when they see it.
