Bill Maher Is Asked If Muslim ‘Ideas Are Bad.’ His Comeback Draws Loud Applause

(Content Warning: Language)

During his panel discussion on tonight’s Real Time, Bill Maher addressed how liberals rush to defend Syrian refugees and Muslims without acknowledging that many embrace a value set that is not shared with most Americans. “If you are in this religion, you probably do have values that are at odds. This is what liberals don’t want to recognize,” Maher said. “This idea that somehow we do share values that all religions are alike is bulls**t.” Chrystia Freeland strongly disagreed with Maher’s idea, saying that the Paris attacks should be a rallying call for diversity as a way of showing superiority to ISIS. This led to a series of exchanges as the table discussed whether the different value set automatically demonizes Islam in the eyes of America, and the merits of pointing out the extreme aspects of Sharia law. When Freeland emphasized that you don’t change extreme Muslim perspectives by broadly painting their ideas as bad, Maher retorted that he was standing up for moderate Muslims, and that “killing women for being raped, I would say is bad.”
