Talk show host Bill Maher Friday night sought to burst the bubble of deluded liberals who swallow the pablum of the pundits that all religions share common warm and fuzzy values.
“Fifty-six percent of Americans believe that the Syrian refugees… their values are at odds with our values. That may not be wrong,” said Maher. “If you are in this religion, you probably do have values that are at odds. This is what liberals do not want to recognize. You may be from a country—as there are many, many Muslim countries—that either have Sharia law or want Sharia law.”
“Those values are not our values,” Maher said.
Maher quoted British Prime Minister David Cameron, who said, “The root cause of the threat we face is the extremist ideology itself.”
Maher then listed off the horrors of Islamic law as recounted by Cameron.
“I’m not saying this is going to happen in America, but this idea that somehow we do share values, that all religions are alike, is bulls–t. And we need to call it bulls–t,” Maher said.
Maher took a scolding from one guest, Canadian Minister of International Trade and MP Chrystia Freeland, who said it was “very, very wrong to demonize a religion.”
“I’m not demonizing, I’m just reporting. You are making it a demonization,” Maher replied.
Freeland capsulized Maher’s opinions as saying, “Muslims are bad.”
He replied that he was insisting, “ideas need to be changed.”
“You’re saying their ideas are bad?” Freeland then said.
“Uh, killing women for being raped, I would say is a bad idea. Yeah, I do. Hang me for it,” Maher replied.
