Democrats are furious at Bill Maher for turning against their agenda.
He was always on the Left, but then he turned against them when they became too extreme.
Now he is blasting one major Democrat-run city for following the Soros agenda.
Bill Maher is one of the few true independents in America. He thinks for himself and is totally unattached to either one of the two parties.
For most of his life he was solidly on the Left. He still has some left-leaning views. For example, he believes Donald Trump is a threat to democracy. But he also refuses to go along with the Left’s modern-day woke craziness.
One of the issues where he refuses to go along with the Left’s woke agenda is crime.
Unlike the Soros-funded prosecutors throughout the country, Maher is against crime. When he walks down the streets of a major U.S. city, he prefers not to be violently attacked and mugged.
Most Americans, of course, feel the same way about violent crime. But Soros-funded prosecutors disagree. They think violent crime is actually not a bad thing at all.
That’s why in many cities, they have completely refused to prosecute criminals, violent or otherwise.
Of course, someone does not have to be a heavy-handed “law and order” type to think that, for example someone who violently attacks and robs an innocent person should probably go to jail.
That is not a particularly controversial thing for most normal people, only for left-wing radicals.
Bill Maher is not a left-wing radical. His views are much more aligned with American independents. And he is speaking out.
According to the New York Post, “HBO host Bill Maher wondered why more people – including celebrities – don’t speak about the devastating crime wave that’s gripped Chicago and led to countless tragic deaths.”
Maher had this to say: “But why isn’t anyone ever talking to, like Chicago, like most of the shootings are young black men killing other young black men. Is that not correct?”
He then called out the Left for being obsessed with symbolic acts that do nothing to fix the actual problem and improve the quality of life for African Americans.
“It seems like, you know, a lot of times the solutions that come from the left seem symbolic. They don’t seem like we’re addressing what really needs to be done, which is get kids learning, get them reading, get them to have a job.”
Part of the problem with that is that many left-wing people who work with inner-city children don’t believe in capitalism at all.
So instead of encouraging young African-American children to become business owners, or engineers, or software developers, they encourage them to become artists and songwriters.
But artists and songwriters aren’t going to do anything to help Chicago fix its problem with poverty and violence. Business owners and entrepreneurs will.
So Bill Maher is exactly right. If Chicago and other big cities are going to escape from the malaise that has engulfed them in the wake of COVID, they need to start teaching young people how to be productive in the real world so they stop killing each othe
