In a rare show of honesty, liberal "comedian" Bill Maher let slip that the Left is hoping for economic collapse.
Friday on HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher admitted he was hoping for the American economy to falter because he said that was the one way to “get rid” of President Donald Trump.
Maher acknowledged the economy was good for now but said he felt like the bottom could “fall out at some point.”
“That’s my question — I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy,” Maher said. “So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy.”
Of course that is the case. They want the economy to crash for the same reason they love globalization that ships our high wage, middle-class jobs overseas. Liberals as a political philosophy thrive on and depend on misery. The more people are out of work, the more they work at low-wage jobs at Wal-Mart and McDonalds, the more dependent they are on government and thus the more likely they are to vote Democrat. It is a cold, callous political calculation but one that you have to admit works. Just as encouraging women to be "independent" and not "needing a man" only replaces husbands with government, so to does economic misery change the dynamic so that instead of relying on providing for yourself, you instead rely on government. Once people get hooked on the government dole it is hard to get them off and this is by design. If you are on welfare and food stamps and getting a job means losing the free money, that makes a serious disincentive to going back to work. Our social welfare programs are designed to benefit you more the less you do. No wonder we have a huge and growing dependency class in this country.
Liberalism only thrives where people are miserable.
