Bill Maher Knows Exactly What Is Wrong With the Democratic Party

The Democrats are in trouble. They’re in big, deep trouble, and some of the thought leaders on the left are fully aware of it. Despite that, the left has committed so fully to their cycle of lies that they seem completely unable to stop.

They’ve been caught lying about the Mueller investigation, Russian collusion, economic policy and immigration. That last one is so bad that it’s threatening to tear the party apart.

In a recent segment, Bill Maher commented on how immigration policy is hurting the left. He’s been nearly ostracized by the Democrats since. Let’s look at what he said and what it means for the Democrats going into 2020.

Maher’s Assessment

On his show, Bill Maher admonished Democrats. He explained to his audience that the left’s stance on immigration is going to cost them dearly in the 2020 election. “If it becomes a ‘woke’ contest, then the Democrats lose on this.”

He didn’t stop there. With further elaboration, he explained that anyone who is compelled by the so-called woke contest is already on the far left. They won’t be moved to change their votes on this.

Meanwhile, anyone with any modicum of conservatism will run in the opposite direction of the Democratic Party. They won’t just lose moderate Republicans. Moderate Democrats and centrists will also have no choice but to vote against Democrats on these grounds.

Most importantly, the woke vote is nowhere near large enough to swing a national election. Progressives still only make up about a third of the Democratic Party. As much as it’s painful to admit it, Maher is exactly right on this.

Untenable Positions

The Democrats have backed themselves into a corner on immigration. When they unanimously accused President Trump of fabricating the immigration crisis for an election, they showed their true colors. All of the calls to abolish ICE and relax border security have been met by record waves of illegal immigration. What was a crisis last fall has escalated into an unprecedented invasion.

At this point, over a hundred thousand immigrants are illegally crossing each month. It’s so bad that multiple former Obama officials have gone on record to state that this is a crisis. In fact, it’s the single largest crisis in America right now.

Instead of facing that, “woke” leadership in the Democratic Party worked tirelessly to prevent any additional funds from going to border security and management. A large chunk of the money President Trump asked Congress to provide was for additional beds, facilities and personnel to process these huge numbers of immigrants. Since the Democrats denied all of that funding, thousands of refugees are sleeping under overpasses in border towns because there is no room to house them anywhere.

A Shattered Party

In the modern world, you can only lie so loudly before the truth comes back to bite you. The left has outright lied about the border crisis from day one, and that is what Maher is referencing. While claiming to be compassionate, the woke left is fully responsible for the current humanitarian crisis. Every child sleeping on the streets of El Paso is doing so specifically because the progressives lied about the border crisis. Now, the rest of the country has a clear view of those lies and their consequences.

No matter how you feel about illegal immigration, it’s painfully clear that there are too many illegal aliens for our resources. Despite that, the far-left is still calling for the abolishment of ICE. They still want to defund Border Patrol, and they’re still trying to increase illegal immigration.

At the same time, they are flat out refusing to accept any of these immigrants into self-proclaimed sanctuary cities. It’s pure hypocrisy on every level, and no matter how much they lie about being compassionate, everyone can see through it. Unless they abandon all of their untenable positions on immigration, the Democratic Party will buckle.

Immigration crisis aside, this is fun for any conservative to watch. Maher and others in the party can clearly see where things are headed. They are fully aware of the trouble, and they’re going to be completely ignored. It’s 2016 all over again, and anyone who appreciates the myriad of successes we’ve enjoyed under President Trump can’t help but smile when they see it.

  1. bill mahr, LOL he is a real joke..HAHAHAHAHAHAHA….Just like SOOOOO many libs he thinks people want to hear him…Wrong…LOL……Another washed up so called celebrity….looking for attention.


  3. This is not like 2016, In 2016 the immigration problem was not as bad, our laws were the same, just not as many getting thru. In 2016 when Trump won, a lot of us were surprised because we really did not want either of them to win, Trump was just the lesser evil. Now that he is our President I for one am very pleased with what he has done. Maher just sees what is happening and is warning his party what is going to happen. But its too late for Dems, In 2020 they will lose everything, and have nobody to blame but themselves. Republicans did not have to do anything.

  4. THIS is a MUST READ for what is happening in our COUNTRY.. LONG but take the time…Civil War How do civil wars happen?Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.That’s a civil war.There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country but then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you’re asking for is a dictatorship.Your very own dictatorship.The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House.So what did they do?They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time a Federal judge issues an order saying the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without the judge’s say-so, that’s civil war.Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.If the Democrats are in the White House, the president can do anything…and I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor invented illegally. A Democrat in the White House has discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, but the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.The Constitution has something strong to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like the medieval guilds. You can’t serve if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought a bunch of people with him who aren’t in a club with him. Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did win. Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between a conservative volunteer government and the leftist Democrat professional dictator government.

    1. Keith, excellent post….well thought out and to the point….Kudos to you for taking the time to express what so many of us know and believe

  5. Somehow I don’t think that the next election will be like 2016. No, I think it will be more like 1980 and 1984 where Ronald Reagan totally obliterated the Democrat party! It needs to be destroyed, pure and simple.

  6. While it is true that the Democrats are in full self-destruction mode, will it be enough to offset all the illegal voting? Illegals are pouring across the boarder like water through a sieve. The Dems will do everything they can to get these people to vote for them numerous times along with the dead. If the truth were to truly be known, Hillary didn’t really win the popular vote through honest legal votes. We all know that. This time it will be even worse. Although, the most illegal votes will come from California, but their electoral votes will not change. Other states like Florida also have a growing number of illegals. The entire Dem concept of have the illegals enter the country is to increase their voting block. But this same strategy will also destroy their party as discussed in the article. I have seen many articles suggesting that the old school Dems are fleeing the party. Is it true? I certainly hope so. But also, I see many Dems posting messages that they have had enough of the crap and will no longer vote Dem. So perhaps it really is happening as stated in the article. I truly hope it is!

  7. Now that muellers report has come out there must be many previous dems rethinking their position. At least the intelligent well read dems who like the rest of us are sick and tired of this expensive charade perpetrated by the so called corrupt deep state. I hope these folks have the gumption to turn the table on the m when we vote in 2020. It will be our last chance to retain our freedoms as we know them today.

  8. Maher has the right idea. The Democrats are drinking too much of their own koolaid! The lie as a rule now and then believe their own fantasy.
