Bill Maher Blames Radical Islam For Mass Sexual Assaults in Germany
This a very interesting video. Some observations:
1) Cornel West does the standard, "not all Muslims" disclaimer, but then implicitly admits there is a problem with Islam by stepping aside and allowing Maher to take it from there, not offering any argument to the contrary.
2) Ralph Reed is very eloquent, speaking of the very real sadness of the plight of many people attempting to flee the wars of ISIS. However, Reed also comments, "This is beginning to look like the Martee Boatlift (I'm quite sure he is referring to the Mariel Boatlift)."
3) And then to top it off, Maher notes that, while there is an apparent commonality between the circumstances of the Mariel boatlift, the Muslim refugees fleeing Syria are not mere criminals, but are, instead, carriers of a specific virulent ideology which leaves destruction in it's wake wherever it goes, saying,
"It's not a criminal element, unless you are prepared to indict the entire society as criminal ... (Given the realities of Sharia Law, and Muslim support of it) these are not criminal activities in the Muslim society, these are (manifestations of Sharia law) ..."
And then, after that, we are treated to the stunning sight spectacle of witnessing Ralph Reed and Cornel West argue against Bill Maher, making essentially the same point,
Moderate Muslims ... blah ... blah ... blah ...
Idiocy makes for strange bedfellows, I guess.
