Commentator Bill Maher continued his lambasting of the violence of Islam Wednesday night, during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
He didn't even let Kimmel off the hook when the host waveringly began a statement, saying we “presume” Muslim terrorists were to blame for the murder of 12 in the Charlie Hebdo attack.
“No, it's not a 'presume!' No no! It's Muslim terrorists. This happens way too frequently. It's like Groundhog Day, except if the groundhog kept getting his head cut off.”
Maher asked those with left-leaning political beliefs to acknowledge that it's not “racist” to call Islam a violent religion. And when Kimmel suggested that Americans need to realize what a huge deal this was, Maher uttered the line of the night: “Pussy nation.”
“We have to stop saying 'We shouldn't insult a great religion.' First of all, there are no great religions, they're all stupid and dangerous. And we should insult them, and we should be able to insult whatever we want. That is what free speech is like.”
It remains to be seen whether Maher's wake-up call to his fellow Americans will be heeded.
