Broken Clock Maher: Looting is Bad, ‘Defund the Police’ is Stupid

June 15, 2020

Friday on HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher vented his frustration with fellow mainstream Democrats for not pushing back against their own more radical “bullies who are on Twitter.” He also recently criticized the “defund the police” slogan as politically stupid.

“I just don’t understand why they never rebel against the bullies who are on Twitter…,” Maher said. “They do not represent nearly the mainstream of the party. Now they’re doing it with this looting issue. You know, on social media, saying ‘looting is bad’ is bad. And looting is bad. I can keep two thoughts in my head at the same time: that police brutality must stop, racism is horrible, and taking things that aren’t yours, also not good.”

“Liberals want to take police money, police funds and divert it to community services, which sounds like a very good thing, good idea, but they’re calling it ‘defund the police,’ which sounds bad,” Maher added. “That is so Democrats for you. You know, they must have meetings to be this fucking stupid about politics: ‘Hey guys, we’re making some headway here, how can we turn this into something that makes people have to vote for Trump?’”
