Bill Maher is a liberal comedian who is usually viciously anti-Trump, but he has an occasional penchant for telling the truth, something that gets him in hot water with the radical left from time to time.
In a monologue for his show Friday night, Maher did it again, savaging the leftist slogan “defund the police.” According to Maher, the slogan is “f—ing stupid.”
“They’re calling it, ‘Defund the Police,’ which sounds bad!” he stated. “That is so Democrats for you. They must have meetings to be this f—ing stupid about politics. ‘Hey, guys, we’re making some headway here. Um, how can we turn this into something that makes people have to vote for Trump?’”
Maher is in line with the over two-thirds of Americans that oppose defunding the police, but that won’t stop the Marxists from calling for his head.
We’ve written in this space before about how “defund the police” is just what it sounds like, despite the efforts of mainstream Democrats to water it down.
As we noted then:
The New York Times just ran a piece from Mariame Keba, a self-described “organizer against criminalization,” called “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police (Because reform won’t happen).”
Ms. Keba argues against reforming the police, saying: “Enough. We can’t reform the police. The only way to diminish police violence is to reduce contact between the public and the police.”
Maher and the more sane old-line liberals believe that they can control the anarchists and radicals in their party, using their energy to drive turnout and then neutering their platform.
They’re playing with fire. Trying to control those who want to burn America down is a dangerous game.
