On his HBO's "Real Time", Maher gets into it with fellow liberal CSU-San Bernardino professor Brian Levin- of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism.
Since Levin studies "crazy people who do terrible things", Maher wondered how people like the eldest Boston terrorist bomber could hold two contradictory mindsets, citing his Internet profile that stated his world view as Islam, and his personal priorities as career and money. He then mentioned the 9/11 hijackers who visited strip clubs the night before they boarded the plane. Cutting him off, Levin launched into a diatribe about it not being just an Islamic issue. Maher then called Levin's contention that it's not only Muslims who are hypocritical and do "wacky things"- "liberal bullshit."
In comparing religions, Maher asked could they do "The Book of Islam" -referring to the play "The Book of Mormon" currently running on Broadway. We all know the answer to that question, Levin does not.
“You know what, yeah, yeah,” Maher said. “You know what — that’s liberal bullshit right there … they’re not as dangerous. I mean there’s only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam. So you know, I’m just saying let’s keep it real.”
Bill Maher was the clear winner in that debate.
