    Saturday Night Card Game (Bill Maher Out Juan-Williamses Juan Williams, Media Silence Erupts)

    Saturday Night Card Game (Bill Maher Out Juan-Williamses Juan Williams, Media Silence Erupts)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

    Unless you spent the past 10 days high in the Himalayas worshipping the Aqua Buddha, you are aware that Juan Williams was fired from NPR, and subjected to howls of “racist” from the left-blogosphere and media, for expressing that he becomes uncomfortable when he sees people in “Muslim garb” on airplanes (he acknowledged at the same time that such fears were based on unfair stereotypes).

    One high-traffic left-wing blog even referred to Williams as Fox News’ “lawn jockey.”  (Which was not the first time that slur was used by the left against Williams.)

    Yet, there have not been similar howls regarding left-wing superstar Bill Maher, who recently expressed concern about the spread of Islam in the West, as reported by Mediaite:

    Those who accuse the once libertarian Bill Maher of becoming too much of a liberal apologist might want to clean their ears. Maher made a Juan Williams-esque confession on his program when he apprehensively noted that Mohammed has just become the most popular baby name in Britain. “Am I a racist to feel alarmed by that?” Maher asked his panel. “Because I am. And it’s not because of the race, it’s because of the religion. I don’t have to apologize, do I, for not wanting the Western world to be taken over by Islam in 300 years?”

    Maher will get a pass because he serves other purposes.  Maher attacks Christians, Republicans, conservatives and Tea Partiers with even more vigor than he attacks Islam. 

    And of course, Maher is most famous of late for attempting to smite the dreaded O’Donnell of Delaware.

    It seems that in the eyes of the left-blogosphere and media, “Islamophobia” is in the eye of the beholder, and that beholding is strictly partisan.

    Bill Maher is an atheist. That's why he's missing the point, that 300 yrs., isn't the desired timeline of their plan. So he can't understand the 'hurry up clause' in their holy writings for a quick kingdom come.

    My religion is based on the belief, that the Lord calls you home at His convenience. Not mine and bringing any number of innocent people I feel like with me, who may die in an extremely frightened, painful way.

    Most all other religions in the United States of America are respectful of the others religion. Why are we trying to intergrate or wedge a hostile religion amongst us. Consider me an intolerant [email protected]#$%^&. But I rebuke to leaving this earth until called BY MY LORD and not because I am considered an "Infidel" of someone elses religion. My religion never asks me to kill some to make a point, especially a faith based one.

    Hatred is the nectar of the devil.

    maher's comment was certainly met with silence from his usually boistrous audience…it wasn't until the jokes about uncle and aunt mohammed that they were able to release their nervous laughter. gotta give him a lot of credit for speaking the unspeakable to his crowd.

    @theresa: if you don't think there have been calls for the smiting of the non-believers in the history of your religion, then you don't know a heck of a lot about your religion. here is where maher is often also correct: religion IS the problem.
