There is no hope for Maher
Even though he despises both his religious halves
He does recognize Islam as distinctively dangerous
I don’t think there is either
We are starting to realize that the reason there was a middle [dark] age is because Islam terror drove Christendom into it.
I would make this observation. Once you go to each single guy who has caused trouble over the past ten years (from 9-11 on), and note the mosque they went to, and the guy who ran the mosque....it seems to always come back to a Saudi-trained mullah or religious guy in charge. It’s not Syrian, or Turkish, or Tunisia...it’s a Saudi guy.
This is your wake up call, Mr. Maher!
You know your debate point is sliding into the abyss when you're defending evil by using the 'it is just our turn' excuse.
I know Levin. Quite well.
Nice guy, but he’s farther left than Mark Potok, possibly Obama.
“LEVIN: Well, I guess I have a girl for you, Pam Geller you could maybe meet. No, I really disagree with you. “
LOL! Sweet, I hope he has Pam Geller on his show. All the Islamic institutions have stopped her from speaking lately.
Even a broken clock ....
The Saudis actually almost bankrupted the country building globall terrorism.
A plague that would wipe out any and all members of the Saudi family would be a geneticists community college project these days.
I give Maher credit on this one. For a public figure to talk like this is just begging for some azzhole muzzie to come headhunting. It takes a certain amount of courage to call it out the Maher did.
Indeed it is his wake up call. Maybe too a wake up call to all leftists..did they really feel safer crouching in their Boston homes with no guns and open borders..
Maher actually does a good job eviscerating the prattling Levin. He also does it without the emotionalism of pundits like BOR and SH.
What we need is for highly visible Islamic religious leaders to step forward and publically and repeatedly condemn the Jihadists and then to act in accordance with their words by outing would be terrorists.
Maher’s front-running on this one...saying publicly what millions think but are afraid to say for fear of being un-PC
MAHER: You're right, during the Middle Ages, I would say Christianity was the bigger problem.
Oh yeah, Bill, the Crusades, which were launched after 300 years of unanswered Mohammedan aggression.
Those Crusades, Bill? Learn some history.
Well, that's just before Islam existed. "bigger" is a relative term when the other DOESN'T exist.
It's just beginning. Our schools are working overtime to perpetuate the myth.
The truth has many enemies.
Maher has already had Brigitte Gabriel on his show to speak about moderate muslim nonsense.
A true American “moderate” Muslim beheads wife
Great segment! please watch!
Gabriel “when western men try to kill their wife they try to hide the problem they try to run away. they do not call the police and brag about beheading their wife”
“It takes a certain amount of courage to call it out the Maher did.”
I agree. He puzzles me... 99.9% of the time I can’t stand to even read about him. but twice in the past month he has gotten it right.
1st time, complaining about the progressive tax burden on the rich. Now this.
Doubt that it will become a trend, but it is definitely refreshing to hear someone with a leftist audience speak the truth.
This ever classy, waste of otherwise valuable protoplasm and pathetic excuse for a life form is seen here whacked out on a large quantity of booze and/or exotic chemicals in his Halloween, 2007 STEVE IRWIN get-up! Bill Maher: Giving SCHMUCKS and MORONS a bad name for over 20 years!!
He does recognize Islam as distinctively dangerous
Unfortunately he doesn't know about his own 99% communist/atheist side.......
That said, it seems even HE is starting to “get it.”
MAHER: Okay, can you imagine if they did “The Book of Islam?” Could they do that? Theres only one religion that threatens violence and carries it out for things like that. Could they do The Book of Islam on Broadway?
LEVIN: Possibly so.
MAHER: Possibly so? Tell me what color the sky is in your world.
You know ...I was invited to the Playboy Mansion long ago
Didn’t go.....given Maher is such a regular these days
Glad I passed
There is hope for everyone. Pray for Maher and those like them.
Has Maher, however, finally figured out that virtually on the terrorism and genocide in the world done in the name of religion is being committed by Muslims?
This isn’t the first time he’s specifically called out Islam as being inherently violent. He’s confronted Keith Ellison about it in an interview, and said numerous times that Christianity is innocuous compared to Islam (although he dislikes both).
Its more than just crusades. By the late Middle Ages, the Church was a very corrupt institution - half the Popes were either murdering their opposition (Borgias, anyone), or having children out of wedlock, or engaging in intense bribery -- (indulgences, anyone), that when there was push-back in the form of Martin Luther, there was equal and violent push back by the Church in the form of the Inquisition. It took hundreds of years for that to settle out, and it has settled out. The Pope we have today is such a holy man and would have been totally out of place in the Middle Ages.
Yes ... Far fewer people were killed in the name of Christianity than Islam during the middle ages. It is just more newsworthy because people sort of expect muslims to kill.
He apparently doesn't realize or acknowledge atheist, communist governments have killed more than Muslims or those prescribing to any other belief in the past century.
Even vile pigs can see that Islam is NOT the religion of peace.
No hope for Maher. He’s going somewhere bad when he dies.
I don’t have any figures on the extend of Islam aggression and the deaths caused by that fanaticism — however, I can speak to Henry VIII and his genocide with the Roman Catholic Church in England. It is thought that approx. 100,000 people from a population of 2 million were executed. Even if you play with the numbers (say downgrade the number death to 70,000 - 80,000) and up the population, (say 2.5 million), you’re still taking about a significant section of people. I believe Elizabeth I was worse.
I think the great majority of card-carrying libs and leftist know that Islam is the biggest threat in the world. But they’re just so conditioned to hating conservative Christians most of them cannot bring themselves to speak the obvious.
I’d not be surprised to see more peoples eyes opened. I’m sure that there were more than a few libtards caught off guard by his statements. Maybe they’ll start seeing the bullsh!t.
I know your intentions are good
I’ve just never been nor will ever be that level a Christian
You ever see The Mission
I’m more DeNiro than Irons
No...he just recognizes their are certain truths that are indisputable
After all, he may be a liberal, but he isn't a idiot...
Don’t let him know you’re praying for him.... That will drive him right back to liberal doucheville.
I’m torn. I hate Maher, but he’s correct somewhat here
The Turks of the 18th century and the Hashemites were too mild for him (they only persecuted Christians and Jews, they didn't slaughter them)
Saud and Wahabb made a pact to support each other
When the house of Saud got money in the 70s (thanks to our cars), they then splurged it on spreading Wahabiism to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Chechnya, Bosnia etc. etc.
With Mayer’s homosexual joke about MeCain & Graham & now calling B.S. on ‘all faiths do it’, the broke clock has been right twice now.
And then to think we went to war in 1991 against Saddam to defend the “House of Saud”....what fools we were.
Here is the relevant excerpt from Laux's Church History: "The total number of men and women, priests, monks, etc., who suffered death in England for the Catholic faith from 1535 to 1681 is over six hundred, several hundred of whom have been beatified." (p 454) Of course, Fr. John Laux's book is the Roman version of the story so it doesn't tell you that Bloody Mary, Henry's daughter who adhered to the Church of Rome, killed comparable numbers of Christians, usually burning them alive.
200,000? Seriously? Wow. The worst internecine slaughter of Christians during that period occurred in France, during the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre: The number of Huguenot's murdered is estimated to be between 5,000 and 30,000. Unlike the English persecutions, which were confined to specific cases, that particular bit of Roman treachery was a deliberate decapitation strike against the French Reformers, whose leaders had gathered to honor a royal wedding.
