During Monday’s edition of “The Matt Walsh Show,” the host played a viral clip from a recent “Real Time with Bill Maher” episode when Maher asked Elon Musk about radical transgender activists shutting down free speech and other tactics.
Maher asked Musk how and why “this woke mind virus” started.
Musk replied, “It’s been a long time brewing … it’s been going on for a while. And the amount of indoctrination that’s happening in schools and universities is far beyond, I think, what parents realize.”

Walsh said he agreed with what Maher and Musk said about the “woke stuff” and he’s glad that Maher is bringing attention to the topic. However, Walsh said Maher should look in the mirror to see where the “woke mind virus” began.
“And no it didn’t come from bats and it wasn’t grown in a lab,” Walsh said. “And it didn’t fall out of the sky. It didn’t climb out of the ground or something. … Bill you know what’s the origin of the ‘woke mind virus,’ you.”
“You’re the origin,” he added. “Not just you, but liberalism. The Left, the ideology you espouse, that’s where it comes from. It didn’t come out of nowhere. … It was born from the liberalism that you still ascribe to.”
“It is a logical extension of that,” Walsh continued. “This is a point that needs to be made and that conservatives need to make rather than simply applauding. … And the more that people like Bill Maher can pretend that wokeness is completely divorced from the leftism that he ascribes to … the worse it is.”
