Strange Bedfellows Alert: Bill Maher agrees with Dinesh D’Souza, condemns radical Islam

In a true case of strange bedfellows aligning, Bill Maher found himself aligned with conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza during panel on Friday’s Real Time. Maher took issue with those on the left who fail to condemn radical Islam. He pointed out the hypocrisy of liberals who come to the defense of the religion while simultaneously fighting for the rights of women.

To begin, Maher pointed to the coverage of Boko Haram and the kidnapping of some 300 Nigerian schoolgirls. While the terrorist group is comprised on known Islamic militants, the media has largely failed to report that fact.

“There’s no mention here of connecting this to the religion, which is always what I am seeking to do because I think that’s the elephant in the room,” Maher said. “And that in the religious at large, women are seen as property, second-class at best, often as property. Shouldn’t that be brought to light in this debate as well?”

Maher is an outspoken atheist, and he said he would condemn 14th century Christianity for its violence much in the same way he is criticizing Islam. After D’Souza pointed out “it does seem that the vast majority of terrorist incidents do involve some aspect of the Muslim world,” fellow panelist Arianna Huffington said it “becomes dangerous” to stereotype Muslims as terrorists.

“Where it becomes dangerous is that liberals like yourself do not stand up for liberalism,” Maher responded. “Liberalism means, one, mostly, equality of women. Free speech. No death threats… I’m the bad guy because I’m against the people who cut your arms off for not praying.”

Ultimately, Maher concluded: “Islam is the problem.”

Watch the segment below:

“Let me ask you this. Can you imagine if I would have gotten on and said ‘Islam is the problem,’” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Remember, what we are doing is we are driving a football player out of the NFL because he tweeted ‘OMG. Horrible.’ We have a smear campaign of two television hosts from HGTV, who are Christian… And yet here's the number one supporter of Barak Obama, and you don't hear a word.”

As Glenn explained, Maher has faced little to no criticism for his comments about Islam. Why aren’t the political correctness police out in force calling for a boycott of Maher’s program? Without the media and activists making a huge deal of these comments, the American people have simply moved on.

“Who's driving the country? Because you see this is an example of real public opinion, without the Media Matters of the world, without the activists involved, without the media involved, and without the politicians involved, you see how America reacts to someone saying something that you may agree or disagree with, and that's this: ‘Huh,’ and you move on,” Glenn said. “Everything is a hash tag now. Everything is #he's a hater, #boycott. But because this guy is on the politically correct side now, because he's the president's biggest

donor… [they’re] cool with that.”

While Glenn may no longer recognize the United States, he does recognize the American people. This situation may illustrate the tremendous double standard that exists in this country, but it also proves that freedom of speech is not entirely dead – yet.

“Who are we becoming? I don't recognize my country. The good news is I do recognize most people still in America… Nobody's talking about it. Why? Because all the things that we keep arguing about are bull crap and they're manufactured,” Glenn concluded. “Freedom of speech is the most important. Agree or disagree with Bill Maher. I am at least glad to see that even if it just is that you have to give $1 million to the president, someone is allowed to say the truth as they see it in America.”

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
