I wrote this note on Facebook:
Bill Maher is Mainstreaming Criticism of Islam. (see here, here & here and he's continuing week after week on his show, Real Time on HBO) That is Incredibly important during a time when Muslims are on the warpath. Especially during a time when they're on the warpath in a nuclear age running over gutless Western "leaders" who are supposed to protect us. Yet there are those- usually those who've Never spoken as honestly about Islam as Maher has- who dismiss the importance of it because it's coming from him. I can't stand Maher myself outside of his criticism of Islam, (see my older cartoons of him) but his stand on this issue overrides all of his own bs. He Gets it, about one of the most important issues of our time, and tells a truth that he no Doubt gets death threats over, and that's to be applauded. And I think those who've done all they can to get the truth about Islam out there appreciate it. I know I sure as hell do. So it's fitting that those on the right who haven't bothered to learn about Islam in these many years since 9/11/01 are quick to dismiss him. I even hear Mark Levin dismiss him. Levin began to ask questions about Islam as such Only after the beheading of Colleen Hufford, but he's cooled off since the story has. I heard Levin this past week say something angrily dismissive in response to the many video links he got about Maher taking on Islam, "Good! He's finally talking about the Islamonazis!". No. Maher Never uses the misnomer "Islamonazis". That word does nothing but make Levin feel like he's saying something strong. If he knew Islam, he'd simply call them what they are, Jihadists. That's condemnatory enough. I've only heard Maher use proper terms such as Islam, Jihad, Sharia Law, Muslims, etc. The simple truth damns Islam. So critics of Maher's should try speaking the truth about Islam one day, but only after they've done their homework on it, like Maher has.
