Bill Maher expressed some concerns about cracking down on radical Islam in the United States and argued to his panel that you don’t have to be a “right-wing nut” to worry about these issues.
Maher praised the Dutch Muslim mayor who told radical Muslims who can’t stand freedom to “fuck off” and asked why we can’t say something similar in the United States.
Josh Barro argued that you’re not going to get much positive social change out of a “fuck you” message, but Maher argued there is an important reason the West should be doing more of that.
He cited the rise of some radical beliefs among Muslim communities in Europe and worried about how fanatical minorities could fundamentally change those nations. Maher said he doesn’t want to live in a world where there are radical Muslims threatening everyone to abide by their laws or else.
And while that might sound a little like something Fox News would say, Maher insisted you don’t have to be a “right-wing nut” to worry about Muslims who “want to take over” places like the United States.
