Bill Maher went OFF last night about Islam in the wake of the Orlando terror attack, and liberals are FURIOUS!
According to The Daily Beast:
“On Friday night’s edition of Real Time with Bill Maher—his first show since the Orlando tragedy where Omar Mateen, a Muslim man who’d pledged his allegiance to ISIS, shot up the LGBT nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Florida, claiming the lives of 49 innocent people—the satirist seemed to place the lion’s share of the blame for the massacre on Islam itself.
“Yes, the ‘God Hates Fags’ people show up with placards and posters [protesting the LGBT community] and they’re despicable, but they don’t show up with guns and bombs. That’s just the world as it is today,” said Maher. “The answer is not to ban Muslims, however. The answer is to ask more of Muslims.”
When some of the guests on his panel later questioned Maher’s rationale, labeling it a mass generalization and pointing out that the mass-murderer appeared to be a closeted homosexual himself with a long history of mental health problems who may have merely latched onto ISIS, the comedian doubled down.
“This is the American myopia: say ‘Muslim’ and they think of the 3 million Muslims in America—who by the way are the lucky ones, because they can come out of the closet, or they can elope with someone who’s not of their faith, or they can leave the religion, or they can draw a cartoon without getting killed,” said Maher.
“This is not the case for so many millions of Muslims around the world. Where are the liberals to stand up for them? The people who could not abide Apartheid for one second, somehow, when it comes to gender Apartheid—which is in so many [Muslim] countries around the world—they are not to be heard. It is a liberal cause, or it should be.”
