Minnesota Freedom Fund — once championed by Kamala Harris — helps to provide bail funds for certain criminals, like rioters from the summer of 2020. Now, one man helped by the non-profit is facing jail time once again: this time for MURDER. And that’s just the start. In this clip, Glenn details tragic crimes that could have been prevented if Democrats hadn’t gotten in the way. And with crime rising in leftist-run cities throughout the U.S., it begs the question: How could anyone vote for our current-day Democrats?!

GLENN: Well, look, we have a couple of things going on that are important. First of all, Minnesota bail fund, champion by Kamala Harris. Remember when she was like, you should bail these people out. You want to contribute.
STU: Yeah. These are the people that went and burned down buildings, and got arrested. And then Kamala Harris said, hey, give these people money so they can get back out on the streets, and probably do it again, tomorrow night.
GLENN: Well, one of the guys that the Minnesota freedom fund that she was recommending that people do. And he was arrested during the George Floyd thing. So he was let out. Shot and killed a passenger, on a railroad platform in St. Paul just a few minutes ago. But no big deal.
Freedom Fund executive directors defended their group's decision to post the bail in a statement on Thursday.
It's at -- it is neither just nor effective to respond to violence by denying bail, and preemptively punishing people, who are disproportionately poor, black, brown, and disingenuous.
STU: See, when you've been arrested, we're not preemptively punishing you. That means, we're doing something in advance of your crime.
The arrest happens after your crime. You're asking in advance of a second crime, that wound up being committed. By the way, I do hope, I do hope we will be seeing that story, that time line told, in a nice, condensed way, in a bunch of political ads going in 2022. I do hope the Republicans do remember all of this. And make sure they highlight that quite clearly. The victim of that crime. So that people remember, what happens, when tells me get control. As they place these DAs all over the country.
GLENN: I don't think they sell 60 minute commercials. Because if you were going to highlight all the people that were released.
STU: Not all of them.
GLENN: Anyway, Tillman's most recent felony conviction was in November 2015, for indecent exposure in the presence of a minor. Don't worry, he had seven prior counts of indecent exposure at the time. But this was one of those good people that needed to be released by Kamala. He's not the first person to commit murder after being bailed out by Freedom Fund. The group also freed a man charged with domestic abuse last year. And then just a couple of weeks ago, he murdered another man in a road rage incident. So we have that going.
Oh, by the way, Minneapolis has the highest number of homicides last year, since the 1990s. So I think we're all going in the right direction. Oh, my gosh.
How do our friends not see this? How do people not see this?
Everything that they have touted has been an unmitigated disaster. And has led us to where we are today. What am I missing?
By the way, if you're a Democrat, or used to be a Democrat, or whatever. I would love to hear from you. If you can understand or explain your friends, I would love to understand. Because I really, truly don't get how you're missing this. Unless it's just so much hatred for the other side.
STU: I think that's exactly what it is. I think it's our society today.
I think we've now crossed the line, where -- I was listening to a podcast over the past week or so. Where they were talking about the conversion -- I wish I could remember the name of it. But it was basically the conversion of our society, from changing from people who rooted for things, to people who rooted against things. And we are now a society that that's all we do.
Like, you know, their example was culturally, with celebrities. Back in the day, people were celebrities, and you praised them. And everybody wanted to be them. And everyone loved them. And then sometime -- I think the theory was in the '90s. That changed to a lot of the celebrities we have, we just hate. We're constantly making fun of them. We're constantly saying, they're reality stars. All --
GLENN: So downtrodden.
STU: Yeah. But that's what we do. They weren't saying that it was necessarily unfair to celebrities. That was not the point.
But look at social media. Someone comes out with something new. And generally speaking, someone sits there, and trashes them. That's what you do. You say how terrible they are. How annoying they are. Everything they do is terrible. And I think that is where we are as a society now. Where like, I think the Democrats -- the only way you could possibly vote for a Democrat, is because you look at the right, and say, I need them more.
GLENN: Well, that's another thing. Nobody likes a fascist, right?
And now there's two things that are happening. One, Biden is calling people semi-fascists. But now, led by Biden, several leaders and several people in the Democratic party, that are running for office, like Charlie Crist, are coming out, and they're not just demonizing the Republican politicians anymore. They are now demonizing Republican voters.
They are clearly saying -- it's always been implied. But now they're clearly saying, these people.
You know, this vermin. These -- these Jews.
Just replace Republican and Jews. They're interchangeable at this point. This is exactly how it happened before. And nobody would know that better -- better than the New York Times. You would think.
