On his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” and elsewhere, Bill Maher has spent more than a decade thrashing Christianity. But now that he’s speaking some politically incorrect truths about the religion of Islam, some students at Berkeley have had enough. Students are petitioning the school to drop Maher as a 2014 commencement speaker. According to a just-aired MSNBC report, the petition has 10,000 signatures.
Other than proving once again that the Left is fascistic when it comes to someone who strays off the left-wing plantation over even one issue, this movement proves the bigotry of those signing the petition and the rest of the political left that is just now angry over Maher’s criticism of religion.
If you reveled in Maher’s sweeping attacks against Christians but are horrified at his uncovering of some of the ugly truths about Islam, the only bigot is you.
This effort to disinvite Maher is also another in a long line of commencement speakers facing the intolerant fascism being bred in university classrooms — the one place where free speech and debate should be the most welcome.
