Bill Maher constantly flirts with being excommunicated from the Left.
If it weren’t for his Trump Derangement Syndrome, he might have already been smeared as “right-wing.”
But Maher called out one Democrat stronghold and the Left went absolutely nuts.
Comedian Bill Maher has tried to draw a bright line between liberals and unhinged leftists.
As more time passes, that line continues to get blurred.
During a recent appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, Maher talked about Democrats’ pro-crime policies and the negative effect they have on their constituents.
Maher specifically referenced Chicago, which has become synonymous with senseless violence and death.

Maher told Rogan, “Liberalism was never shoplifting is progressive. And we weren’t interested in legalizing shoplifting—or I guess we should call it justice shopping. But, you know, in Minnesota, for example, I think it was Minneapolis, after the George Floyd murder and riots…there was a movement to disband a lot of the police, and they did. I think a lot of the police were let go…And what happened was, of course, crime went up in certain areas, and a lot of the officers who had been fired or let go…they were hired as private security by who? The rich people who could afford to do it. So their neighborhoods stayed safe. So that wasn’t exactly, I thought, a victory for Liberalism.”
“No, it’s the opposite,” Rogan responded.
Maher was outlining what has been called the Ferguson Effect; after the Michael Brown protests in Ferguson, Missouri, police officers retreated, and the murder rate increased.
The same thing happened in Minneapolis and other cities in light of the George Floyd riots.
When police withdraw, more people, specifically more black people, end up getting killed.
Minneapolis, Chicago, and most every other Democrat-controlled big city
Maher continued, “Murders have been happening in Chicago way out of control among the African American community for far too long and not really reported in the way they should be. It’s amazing how black lives don’t seem to matter when they are taken by black lives…My friends who live there say it’s not safe anywhere.”
Chicago and Minneapolis are two examples, but it’s happening everywhere.
The “woke” religion of Progressivism has deadly consequences because it’s a rejection of human nature.
When pro-crime policies are implemented, such as effectively decriminalizing shoplifting, larger crimes are certain to follow.
As crime increases, residents and businesses leave.
That’s how thriving areas get hollowed out.
