Bill Maher slams San Francisco’s ‘crazy’ plan to give $5m reparations to black residents

Comedian Bill Maher has criticized San Francisco’s proposed plan to give black residents $5 million in reparations.

During a discussion with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Michigan Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin, Maher questioned whether the plan ‘goes too far’.

He called the proposal ‘crazy’ and argued that ‘woke craziness’ is fueling the outlandish idea. The proposal also includes wiping out personal debt, guaranteeing $97,000 incomes for 250 years, and offering homes for just $1.

To qualify, an individual must have identified as Black/African American on public documents for at least 10 years and be over 18 years old.

During the discussion, Maher also pointed out that San Francisco doesn’t have a history of slavery. He added that the plan would cost every citizen left $600,000 each, calling it ‘madness’.

Maher goes off on San Francisco’s $5m reparations plan

Many who would be in line for the payout argue that they are owed not just because their ancestors were enslaved, but because of the subsequent issues with racism and the high levels of African Americans that are incarcerated compared to white Americans.

The plans have been sharply criticized by many, including former BLM activist Xaviaer DuRousseau, who told San Francisco’s committee that the plan is ‘never actually going to happen’.

Following the contentious reparations debate, Maher also criticized the recent scandal at Stanford University, where woke law students berated Trump-appointed federal Judge Kyle Duncan after he was invited to speak on the campus.

Maher played a clip where the inclusivity dean Tirien Steinbach scolded the judge for his past decisions on same-sex marriage and reproductive rights. Maher pushed back, saying it would have been ‘impossible’ for the judge to make a point amid the onslaught.

CongresswomanSlotkin argued that Duncan was ‘a little bit of a fragile flower’, but Maher disagreed, saying that the dean defended the hecklers, not the speaker.
