Bill Maher Slams Harvard and Other Colleges for Anti-Israel Protests: “If ignorance is a disease, Harvard Yard is the Wuhan wet market.”
“As an Ivy League graduate who knows the value of a liberal education, I have one piece of advice for the youth of America: Don’t go to college.”
On his ‘Real Time’ show this weekend, liberal host Bill Maher took aim at Harvard and other elite schools for all of the anti-Israel and pro-Hamas protests we have seen over the last two weeks.
Maher goes so far as to tell any young people watching to skip college completely, a sentiment that is likely shared by an increasing number of parents in America.

Bill Maher mocks Ivy League schools for ‘indoctrination’ and anti-Israel hate: College ‘makes you stupid’
HBO host Bill Maher skewered America’s Ivy League universities Friday night, accusing them of being hotbeds of “indoctrination” after many student groups have been hammering Israel in the wake of Hamas’ deadly attack against that country.
Citing antisemitic rallies and statements cropping up in academia following the attack, the “Real Time with Bill Maher” host advised that young people should avoid attending these schools.
At the outset of the segment, Maher stated, “As an Ivy League graduate who knows the value of a liberal education, I have one piece of advice for the youth of America: Don’t go to college.”
Showing images of Pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel demonstrations at Harvard University, the comedian continued, “And if you absolutely have to go, don’t go to an elite college, because as recent events have shown, it just makes you stupid.”
Maher stated that the tragedy in Israel revealed “how higher education has become indoctrination into a stew of bad ideas, among them the simplistic notion that the world is a binary place where everyone is either an oppressor or oppressed, in the case of Israel, oppressors being babies and bubbes.”
The host was referring to Palestinian supporters on these campuses that have insisted that the Hamas attack was Israel’s fault for oppressing Palestinians.
The video is below. The first half is excellent, but you may want to skip the second. You’ll know when it’s time to stop when Maher starts bashing Republicans. Bill does this all the time. If he sounds too far right, he has to start trashing conservatives to let the left know he is still on their side.
I laughed out loud at one point where he holds up Obama as a product of Harvard who is some sort of paragon of virtue. If Obama attended Harvard today, which side does Bill think he would be on?
Bill Maher often seems so close to getting it, but then he snaps right back to trashing the right. There is only one side leading the madness we see on college campuses right now, and it’s not conservatives.
