At this point, it's not really news to anyone that Maher has no love for the state of Islam today. Well, recently he had on Ben Affleck as well as author Sam Harris (who has been critical about Islam in his books) and there was a heated exchange when the discussion of Islam came up:
Of course it didn't take long for Affleck to throw in the "Racism" card as Maher and Harris demonstrated just how large the issue is of Radical Islam is today. Look, I think it's admirable that Liberals want to be inclusive and not judge others. But the problem with Liberals (as a whole, but more importantly, in regards to the issue of Islam) is when they buy into moral relativism, they begin to lose sight of what is right and what is wrong. And what is going on the ME and more specifically, Islam today, is clearly wrong. If it was Christianity that was responsible for such human rights abuses, Liberals would be up in arm. Oh wait....
You think Oliver is going to do a video detailing these same horrors that are being perpetrated in the name of Islam? Not unless he wants to gamble with his and his family's lives. We've seen time after time what happens to people who speak out against Islam. It's why as Maher pointed out that he has to walk around with body guards. We as a country are still living under the naive belief that Muslims in the Middle East are just like us and that if given the chance, they just just want be like us. There not, and multiple polls have shown us that. More to the point, recent history has demonstrated this clearly time and time again.
Until we realize this simple truth, we're going to keep shooting ourselves in the foot when it comes to the policy making in the ME.
