Speaking Truth to Kimmel


Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Maher:

“Hundreds of millions” of Muslims “support an attack like this,” Maher said.

“This has to stop, and unfortunately, a lot of the liberals, who are my tribe, I am a proud liberal,” Maher said.

“He’s about to turn on you, so,” Kimmel said to the applauding audience.

“No, I’m not turning on them,” Maher said. “I’m asking them to turn toward the truth as I have been for quite a while. I’m the liberal in this debate. I’m for free speech. To be a liberal, you have to stand up for liberal principles. It’s not my fault that the part of the world that is most against liberal principles is the Muslim part of the world.”

“There have been studies. We have facts on this. Treatment of women. They studied 130 different countries. 17 of the bottom 20 were Muslim countries. In 10 Muslim countries, you can get the death penalty just for being gay. They chop heads off in the square in Mecca. Well, Mecca is their Vatican City. If they were chopping the heads off of Catholic gay people, wouldn’t there be a bigger outcry among liberals? I’d ask you,” Maher noted.


My PJM colleague Andrew Klavan likes to say that he’s a conservative because he’s a liberal, which when it comes to jihad at least, ought to be the default position of every honest American liberal.
