Bill Maher Schools Left-Wing Prof: Teaching Black History Isn't the Problem, It's Dividing Kids by Race

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher continues his attack on the left-wing narrative, this time mixing it up with Princeton professor Michael Eric Dyson over Critical Race Theory on Friday. Before it was over, it was the race-baiting professor who was taken to school — and the disingenuous Dyson knew it.


Let’s first justify labeling Dyson a race-baiter.

As we reported, Dyson hooked up on MSNBC with fellow race-baiter extraordinaire Joy Reid earlier this week, solely for the purpose of saying the most despicable racist things they could come up with about Virginia Lt. Governor-elect Winsome Sears, who continued to be attacked by the hypocritical left en masse.

Here’s a snippet of Dyson’s pathetic, racist rhetoric:

“The problem here is they want white supremacy by ventriloquist effect. There is a black mouth moving but a white idea running on the runway of the tongue of a figure who justifies and legitimates the white supremacist practices.”

Imagine the histrionics on CNN or MSNBC, not to mention social media and the entire Democrat Party, if a conservative — white, black, or anywhere in between — made that comment about a Black person.

Maher kicked off his latest show’s panel discussion, as reported by Fox News, with a conversation about how “Democrats got their a** kicked” in Tuesday’s elections, particularly in Virginia where the issue of Critical Race Theory and the rights of parents to have a say in the education of their children sent Democrat gubernatorial candidate and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe down in flames in a battle with Republican Glenn Youngkin — who throughout his campaign pledged to ban the teaching of CRT in Virginia schools.


“Parents in Virginia were objecting to separating kids by race,” Maher said. “Not objecting to teaching Black history.”

Dyson tried to argue that parents were “spooked” by CRT — even though “none of them can define it” — and suggested that they were outraged only because Black history was now being “centered” in the school curriculum.

Dyson’s argument was disingenuous at best, specifically in the respect of “defining” CRT, which crafty schools and school boards attempt to get around by calling the Marxist-derived indoctrination anything but, as an administrator in the Indianapolis School System admitted in a short video earlier this week.

Maher wasn’t buying, and proceeded to tell Dyson what he already knew.

“But I find that a disingenuous argument because I don’t think that is what people are objecting to. They are not objecting to Black history being taught. There are other things going on in the schools.”


Dyson played dumb: “Like what?”

Maher ‘splained reality to the professor:

“Like separating children by race, and describing them either as oppressed or oppressor. I mean, there are children coming home who feel traumatized by this. That’s what parents are objecting to.”

Incidentally, Maher made the same argument in a panel discussion earlier in the week.

“If that’s what critical race theory means — if it means separating 5-year-olds by race and telling some, ‘You’re oppressors,’ and the others, ‘You’re the oppressed,’ and giving up on a colorblind society and resegregation and racism is the essence of America — then I’m out.”

Anyway, Dyson then did what he and his far-left pals always do: He played the #whataboutism card and completely dodged Maher’s valid argument.

“But Bill … the beginning of Critical Race Theory in the modern times is two years ago … Christopher Rufo, white guy, who said, ‘Look, I’m reading the anti-racist literature. I see this critical race stuff. This stuff will make good publicity.’ And he began to drive it home.

“It’s not Critical Race Theory — it’s the notion of centering Black people as historical agents and the question is, if you talk about white kids being traumatized, oh really? So that Black kids being made to portray slaves — we got stories on both sides.

“I think you are underestimating the anti-Black sentiment that’s deeply entrenched that’s way beyond Trump. It ain’t just Donald Trump, it’s the party itself.”


Complete and utter obfuscation and denial, professor. You just failed Bill Maher’s class. Big time.
