Epic Video: Bill Maher Blasts “Fat Celebration” In America

“It’s Orwellian how often positivity is used to describe what’s not healthy!”

Bill Maher has blasted the media and society at large in the U.S. for celebrating obesity as a “positive” thing.

In an epic rant on his ‘Real Time’ show, Maher stated “There’s a disturbing trend going on in America these days, rewriting science to fit ideology or just to fit what you want reality to be.”

The host continued, “We’ve gone from fat acceptance to fat celebration. That’s new. That is new. To view letting yourself go as a point of pride.”

“We used to at least try and be fit and healthy, and society praised those who succeeded,” Maher continued, explaining “Now, the term ‘body positivity’ is used to mean ‘I’m perfect the way I am because I’m me.’”

“It’s Orwellian how often ‘positivity’ is used to describe what’s not healthy,” Maher further warned, adding that “‘Healthy at any weight’ is an unchallenged lie that people tell themselves so they can go on eating whatever they want.”

Maher further pointed out that “Poor diet is the leading cause of mortality in the United States,” adding “Of course, we’re talking about heart disease and cancer and diabetes, but also as COVID has taught us, obesity is horrible for the immune system, which is why those numbers were off the charts during the pandemic.”

“At some point, acceptance becomes enabling, and if you’re in any way participating in this joyful celebration of gluttony that goes on now, you have blood on your hands, full stop,” Maher further asserted.

Maher also noted that formerly fat celebrities, such as the singer Adele, have been attacked for managing to lose weight.

Maher also noted, “There’s a popular t-shirt that says, ‘I don’t owe no man a flat stomach.’ Okay, no one said you did. You do you. But you’re not a freedom fighter because you want to keep eating donuts.”

Maher also pointed out that 50 years ago people were not obese, stating “Everything’s a struggle; life’s a struggle. But somehow, 50 years ago, this country looked entirely different. You don’t think it was a struggle for them? You think cake wasn’t delicious in 1969?”

“You can make believe you’re fighting some great social justice battle for a besieged minority. But what you’re really doing is enabling addicts,” the host urged.

Watch:

As we highlighted recently, researchers on obesity have called for ‘hurtful’ terms such as ‘morbidly obese’ to be scrapped so as not to harm the feelings of fat people.

Social media giant Instagram is also promoting images of obese people in the name of ‘body positivity’ while refusing to accept healthy eating ads which include photos that show people with well toned bodies.

Two thirds of the population in both Britain and the U.S. are overweight and obesity is imminently set to surpass smoking as the biggest cause of cancer.

The strain on healthcare in both countries because of obesity is clear.

But for god’s sake don’t hurt their feelings.

The media, culture and celebrities are perpetuating the insane claim that being clinically obese is normal and empowering:

The ‘body positivity’ movement is not just a refuge for fat, lazy people who refuse to take personal responsibility for their bad lifestyle choices, its promotion by establishment cultural institutions is literally killing people.

Obesity is linked to a myriad of horrendous, life-threatening diseases and conditions, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, and osteoarthritis.

Promoting body positivity is as ludicrous as promoting ‘smoker positivity’.

    Pfizer CEO Bails On EU Testimony After Report Highlights ‘Secretive’ Vaccine Deal

    Published

    Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has bailed on an appointment to testify before the European Parliament’s special committee, where he was expected to face tough questions over secretive vaccine deals, Politico reports.

    Bourla was scheduled to appear before the panel on Oct. 10, alongside key officials involved in the EUs vaccine procurement process, in order to discuss how to respond to future pandemics. According to the report, “Other pharmaceutical executives have addressed the committee, including the CEO of Moderna and senior officials from AstraZeneca and Sanofi.”

    Bourla? Not so much.

    The committee’s chair, Belgian MEP Kathleen Van Brempt, told POLITICO she “deeply regrets” the decision taken by Pfizer.

    After a visit to BioNTech’s headquarters last week, Van Brempt had said in a written statement that she looked forward to discussions “with other CEOs” including “Mr. Albert Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer” on October 10. -Politico

    In early September, an audit repirt into the EU’s vaccine procurement strategy raised questions over Bourla’s relationship with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen before they struck a multibillion-euro vaccine deal.

    The report, by the European Court of Auditors, found that von der Leyen had been directly involved in preliminary negotiations for the EU’s biggest vaccine contract, for up to 1.8 billion doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, which was concluded in May 2021. This was a departure from the negotiating procedure followed with other contracts, where a joint negotiating team made up of officials from the Commission and member countries conducted exploratory talks. -Politico

    In April, von der Leyen admitted that she had been texting with Bourla for a month straight while they were negotiating the massive contract. Two months later, the texts disappeared, triggering accusations of maladministration by the EU’s ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly,” Reuters reported at the time.

    Bourla and von der Leyen’s cozy relationship was noted last year by the NYT, which Bourla told they had “developed a deep trust, because we got into deep discussions.”

    “She knew details about the variants, she knew details about everything. So that made the discussion, way more engaged.”

    And now Bourla won’t have to answer questions about it.

    According to the latest OECD data, Iceland continues to have one of the highest levels of antidepressant use in the world – with an average consumption of 16 daily doses per 100 inhabitants in 2021.

    In general, the northern countries are among the biggest consumers, with Canada and Sweden also showing a ratio of over 10 doses per 100 inhabitants per day. 

    Worth noting however is the absence of the United States from the data.

    As Statista’s Martin Armstrong shows in the infographic below, antidepressant use has become more widespread all around the world, with major increases from 2015 to 2020 or 2021 observed in Iceland, Portugal and Sweden, as well as Belgium and Greece.

    Why? Because these people are still out there:
