When it comes to our national dialog about Islamic extremism, every conservative’s favorite liberal is Bill Maher.
Last night on Real Time, Maher discussed the Charlie Hebdo massacre and approached the issue with the type of analysis that has characterized his show for the past couple of months. He found fault with Islam as a whole, and didn’t follow the politically correct talking points that Muslim terrorists are just a few bad people in an otherwise peaceful religion.
Maher noted that it’s not just Islamic terrorists who form his opinion of the religion. He pointed out that governments run by Muslims tend to have a less than spectacular record on human rights. As an example, he cited the cited the plight of a Saudi Arabian blogger who was flogged for insulting Islam.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, on the panel with Maher, pointed out that Syria slaughtered 300,000 of its own citizens.
Maher also quoted the President of Turkey, who said that “woman are not equal to men” and that women should be stay-at-home moms, according to Islam.
“You know, what we’ve said all along — and been called bigots for it — is, when there’s this many bad apples, there’s something wrong with the orchard,” Maher said.
