Bill Maher Slams Higher Education As A “Grift”, Likens It To Scientology
Bill Maher took his weekly aim at coddled college students tonight, this time cherry-picking a couple campuses that have amusement park-style water slides to back up his assertion that colleges “are giant luxury daycare centers.”
On HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, the host slammed students for, as one report suggests, studying less than five hours a week, and he mocked course loads in “sports marketing,” “advanced racist spotting” and “You Owe Me An Apology 101.”
Maher’s New Rules rant was prompted by President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan, which the host said would spend “hundreds of billions” of dollars “so everyone can go to college.”
The Right, Maher said, calls the plan “social engineering,” while Liberals “see more schools as the answer to everything.”
Higher eduction, Maher said, “is a racket that sells you a very expensive ticket to the upper middle class.” He asked, “Is it really liberal for someone who doesn’t go to college and makes less money to pay for people who do go and make more?”
Actress Lori Loughlin, who served two months in prison for her role in the 2019 college bribery scandal, “recognized one good scam deserves another,” Maher said. He also compared higher eduction to Scientology, with both requiring increasingly costly levels of advancement.
