Bill Maher continues to show off his credentials as one of America’s most elitist comedians.
This past Friday on Real Time, Maher ridiculed voters from flyover states for their envy of urban city dwellers.
Maher’s comments were in light of Amazon’s recent move to nix its original plan to build a new headquarters in New York. The comedian argued that this move is a microcosm of the geographic inequality that exists in America.
Maher expanded, “We have a problem in America called spatial geographic inequality which means the most affluent and educated people are clustered in just a few cities.”
The comedian also noted the gap in high culture between the two regions: “We have orchestras and theaters districts and world-class shopping. We have Chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee.”
Maher continued with his analysis, “Maybe that has something to do with why Trump voters are obsessed with ‘owning the libs.’ Because the libs own everything else.”
Then he concluded, “The blue parts of America are having a big prosperity party while that big sea of red feels like their invitation got lost in the mail.”
To remedy this problem Maher called on CEO Jeff Bezos “take one for the team” and invest in humblers states like Mississippi in order to generate economic growth. According to Maher, “The fly-over states have become the passed-over states, that’s why red state voters are so pissed off. They don’t hate us, they want to be us.”
Maher does raise a good point, but with a very elitist twist that doesn’t tell us the full story.
Coastal states are largely richer because of the capitalist prosperity that the United States witnessed under the Gilded Age (1870-1920). Sadly, Progressivism has been the norm since the end of this period, making central banking, income taxation, and a monstrous regulatory state a baseline of economic policy.
As a result, urban centers like New York and Los Angeles, who already have established wealth, can bear the brunt of these regulations. The rest of the country gets crushed by these interventions.
For that reason, President Trump should be saluted for his executive order to eliminate regulations at a 2:1 ratio. This has done wonders to free up the U.S. economy, especially in non-coastal states.
For snooty leftists like Maher, these facts are never on their radars. They think it’s just a matter of corporate titans like Jeff Bezos throwing us wretched Middle Americans some scraps. It’s much more complicated than that.
Let’s strike at the root and continue dismantling the regulatory state that creates these divides in the first place. Until then, Maher should stick to his comedy routine instead of trying to give his socio-economic analysis of what separates coastal America from Middle America.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn
In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.
Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.
He was charged with possession of child pornography.
At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.
In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.
They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.
Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.
It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.
As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.
At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.
He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.
Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.
He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.
One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.
Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
