Non-leftists have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Bill Maher. On one hand, Billy-Boy embodies the smug obnoxiousness we’ve come to expect from people on the left (read Finally! Soldier-Hating Bill Maher Gets Bitchslapped… and Bill Maher’s Anti-Uber Rant So Rich in Irony, You’ll Get Gout…). On the other hand, Sir William is perfectly content to eviscerate his own leftist pals for their false equivalencies on issues like PC culture and everyone’s favorite wife-beating, gay-killing murder-cult, Islam. This is one of those instances…
In talking about the London terrorist attack tonight, Bill Maher and his panel ended up clashing over Islamic terrorism and Maher’s assertion that people can’t say it has “nothing to do with Islam.”
Louise Mensch and Chris Hayes immediately objected, with Mensch saying that Timothy McVeigh “had nothing to do with Roman Catholicism.”
“Every time some bomb goes off, before it goes off,” Maher said, “somebody yells ‘Allahu Akbar.’ I never hear anybody go ‘Merry Christmas. This one’s for the flying nun.’”
He said there aren’t “Christian terrorist armies like ISIS” going around.
Hayes brought up the IRA, but Maher shot back, “That’s the past! But we’re living now!… Let’s not fuck around with this anymore, can we get real?”
Christian terrorism, eh? I’m not so sure that’s a thing.
Such false equivalencies pulled right out of their lumpy leftist rectal regions. Radical Muslims are hellbent on destroying us “infidels” because it’s what their boy Allah commanded. ISIS even went so far as to publish a guide saying those exact words. Muslims kill non-Muslims because their Muslim faith commands them to. Alas, to leftists, ’tis but a coincidence. But, if a loony, who happens to be Christian, shoots up a Dunkin’ Donuts? “He did it for Jesus!” False meet equivalency.
We can provide you with multiple examples of Islamic extremism from this week (read Multiple Dead in London Terrorist Attack. Suspect Probably Not Amish… and Canadian Imam Openly Calls for Killing of Jews. But ‘Islamophobia’ is the Problem…). You’re as likely to catch a news story about nutty Islamists as you are to catch an episode of Jeopardy. I’ll take “This Week In Muslim Murder Sprees” for $200, Alex. Can you honestly say the same about Christianity?
False equivalencies. Double Standards. Straight up lies. All in a day’s work for leftists. Intellectual dishonesty might as well be a cardinal virtue in left-wing circles. The interwebs feature piles of video graphic evidence of Muslims being Muslims. Enough to fill a mass grave after a round of beheadings. Yet, the left sticks to their California-compliant guns, insisting that Islam is at the forefront of peace, women’s rights, and progressivism.
