Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” called “bullshit” when it comes to the liberal idea that Muslims embrace values that are shared by Americans.
Maher, no apologist for radical Islam, noted that “fifty-six percent of Americans believe that the Syrian refugees’ values are at odds with our values.”
“That may not be wrong,” he suggested on Friday’s program.
“If you’re in this religion, you probably do have values that are at odds,” Maher said. “This is what liberals do not want to recognize. You may be from a country — as there are many, many Muslim countries — that either have Sharia law or want Sharia law. Those values are not our values.”
He pointed to remarks from British Prime Minister David Cameron on forced marriages, female genital mutilation and honor-based violence by Muslims in his country to support his claim.
“I’m not saying this is going to happen in America,” Maher said. “But this idea that somehow we do share values, that all religions are alike, is bullshit. And we need to call it bullshit.”
