“What’s happening this week, it looks like, is people are understanding this is about something more than just the vaccine mandate,” Maher mentioned. “It’s becoming a big thing. It’s happening all over the world now. They’re thinking it might happen here in Washington on Super Bowl Sunday.”
“People are understanding this is about something more than just the vaccine mandate.”
“Woke, Inc.” writer Vivek Ramaswamy agreed, telling Maher it is in regards to the “uprising of everyday citizens” towards “the rise of this managerial class in democracies around the world.”
“These are the unelected class leaders that ultimately, I think, are using the bureaucratic power to supplant the will of everyday – not only Americans but Canadians and Western Europeans too – and that’s why we’re seeing a fusion of both the left and the right here saying that, ‘Actually we want our voices heard. We want to be able to speak without fear of putting food on the dinner table,’” Ramaswamy mentioned.
Maher requested himself “why truckers” particularly have been organizing such a protest and went on to reply his personal query by mentioning they have been those making the deliveries to the individuals working from house throughout the pandemic.
“You didn’t use that word ‘elitist’ in your whole speech, but, like, that’s the word I think is on people’s tongues and minds,” Maher informed Ramaswamy. “There is this idea, and it’s not wrong, that some people are staying home in their Lululemons and other people can afford to, like, wait out and get a free vacation and money from the government, and other people can’t. And they’re p—ed off- the people who can’t.”
Trudeau sounds ‘like Hitler’
The HBO star then took goal at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he initially thought was a “cool guy,” for his vicious assaults towards the unvaccinated all through the pandemic and his smearing of the trucker protesters.
“He was talking about people who are not vaccinated. He said, ‘They don’t believe in science. They’re often misogynistic, often racist,'” Maher mentioned, quoting Trudeau.
“No, they’re not,” Maher reacted. “He said, ‘But they take up space. And with that we have to make a choice in terms of a leader as a country. Do we tolerate these people?’
“‘Tolerate these individuals’? Now you do sound like Hitler,” Maher said.
“And not too long ago, he talked about them holding unacceptable views… I imply, c’mon!” Maher exclaimed. “I feel that is what get below individuals’s pores and skin.”
Maher went on to cite a New York Times report in regards to the $800 billion in COVID reduction that was spent and the way “72% of it “ended up within the households with earnings within the high 20%.”
“I feel that is what the truckers are mad at … all that cash went up to the people who find themselves within the high 20%?” Maher asked.
‘The system is so corrupt’
“This is what persons are indignant at as a result of the system is so corrupt. The system is so corrupt, and it is not simply company elites, it is the company elites who’re corrupting the system due to the cash that company, their undue affect on a really, very corrupt authorities. This corruption is so baked into the cake and, after all, persons are indignant, persons are enraged and they’re legitimately enraged,” former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson mentioned.
“The Small Business Administration tried to preserve it secret. They mentioned due to privateness, they did not need to let loose the numbers. And the decide mentioned, ‘Oh no, the people need to know this’ and made these numbers public. So what’s taking place is the persons are getting receipts for what we now have been feeling for therefore lengthy. This type of financial injustice, such a structural rigging in order that each time there’s an issue, handle the individuals who have already got, after which the remainder of the individuals who do not have — effectively, good luck. We’ll drop just a few crumbs to you. It’s been going on for many years, individuals have felt it, they acted on it, and now we’re getting the receipts,” Williamson added.
