On HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher raised a question about xenophobia in relation to Britain’s “Brexit” vote this week: “Is it really phobia if you have something to be afraid of.”

Britain’s vote to leave the European Union was reportedly prompted — in large part — by unchecked immigration of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

Of that population settling in Great Britain, Maher observed that 52 percent believe that homosexuality should be illegal, Maher observed.

“What percentage of American Republicans believe that?” liberal panelist Paul Begala asked. “Can we deport them?”

Maher clearly wasn’t buying it.

“They think it should be illegal?” he shot back.

“Sure,” Begala replied.

Maher went on to say that “violent intimidation” prevented millions of moderate Muslims from speaking out against extremists, adding that “every time someone says ‘Islamophobia,’ it gives the people who are intimidating cover.”
