VIDEO: Left-Winger Bill Maher Slams Liberal Actor Ben Affleck Over Affleck’s Stupid Views on Islam

Supposed comedian Bill Maher is usually wrong about, well, just about everything. But on his distrust and criticism of Islam, Maher is exactly, 100% correct. And this video where he is schooling brainless liberal actor Ben Affleck is priceless.

Rare noted[1] how amazing it is to see a liberal like Maher slam another liberal like this.

Only on Bill Maher’s HBO show would atheist intellectual Sam Harris and actor Ben Affleck get into a huge blowup about the nature of Islam. But that’s what happened last night, with Harris and Maher arguing that liberals needed to take a stronger stand against abuses in the Muslim world and Affleck fiercely disagreeing.

“The crucial point of confusion is that we have been sold this meme of Islamophobia where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people. It’s intellectually ridiculous,” Harris said.

“It’s like saying, ‘Oh you shifty Jew!’” Affleck responded.

Maher quickly got agitated with Affleck, saying it was time to stop conflating Islam and other religions of the world that have little recent history of violence.

“[Islam is] the only religion that acts like the Mafia, that will f-cking kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book,” he said.

Maher is exactly right on this. Surprisingly so.
