Maher on Brexit ‘Xenophobia’: ‘Is It Really a Phobia If There’s Something to Be Afraid of?’

maher2Bill Maher tonight took on the issue of “xenophobia” contributing to the Brexit and asked, “Is it really phobia is there’s something to be afraid of?”

He brought up serious concerns the UK and other European nations have about assimilation and “radicalized ghettos” in places like Brussels.

Paul Begala pushed back but ended up fighting with both Michael Steele and Maher, who said that Islam clearly “needs a reformation.”

And the moderates, he added, “are afraid to speak out because of violent intimidation.” And whenever people cry about Islamophobia, it helps out the people doing the intimidating.
