Bill Maher: It’s crazy. That — I don’t understand that. And I also don’t understand liberals who don’t understand, this man who says the moderates are in jail. How could liberals who stood for black people getting to go to college in the 60’s and then when I was in college they were protesting apartheid in South Africa. How can they not stand up against sharia law, which is the law in so many Muslim countries, which is a law of oppression?
How did we get to this place where just describing something is demonizing? And I’m not so sure it’s a very small percentage, maybe a small percentage who carry out terrorist acts, but it’s not a small percentage, right, who believe in some of the illiberal ideas that support terrorists?
