The broken clock known as Bill Maher actually struck the right time on the issue of religious extremism.
Bill Maher is hardly if not ever right on anything. He's a self absorbed megalomaniac progressive who thinks he knows everything but don't. The old saying goes however that a broken clock is right at least twice a day. Well it looks like Bill Maher has for this one moment landed on the right time on the position of religion. Bill has always been an attacker of religion. He's as anti religion as they come on the left. He even created a movie called "Religious" back in 2008. The movie bombed at the box office making only $13 million dollars, no divine help there. Anyways, on the day the second Islamic terrorist suspect was captured, Bill had on his show Brian Levin, the director of the Center for the Study of Hate & and Extremism at California State University in San Bernardino . Since Bill has always been an equal opportunity progressive religious bashing atheist, it would have surprised me if he would have solely went after Islamic extremism based on the terrorist attack in Boston, but Bill Maher did something that even shocked me. He actually in his own way defended all the other religions over Islam against Brain Levin's claim that all religions are violent. What stunned the hell out of me was that Bill Maher made a very rational argument, and he actually called out Mr Levin for his "liberal bullshit". I expect Bill to go back to being his typical obnoxious self if he hasn't already, but if this was an alternative universe, it was good to see at least for one segment what a logical thinking Bill Maher would sound like on the issue of radical Islam.
I have to admit that I was actually impressed with how Bill handled the most used liberal tactic in their arsenal. When Bill pointed out the facts about Islam, Mr. Levin tried to smear Bill as being an "Islamophobe" as a way to try and discredit Bill but it didn't work.
