Last night Bill Maher had Glenn Greenwald on his show. Maher, a self-professed atheist who thinks religion is poison but thinks Israel is wonderful got a big surprise.

Much has been written about Maher and his special loathing of Islam and much of it is fair. But this segment is especially telling. The whole 9:00 piece is worth watching but things really get rolling around the 5:00 mark. Greenwald thoroughly takes Maher to task for his blatant disregard of history and his “my side is better therefore we can do what we want to whomever we want” attitude. The video speaks for itself so I won’t say much more about it except that Greenwald’s deconstruction of Maher proves that the essence of Maher’s thinking is as irrational as the religions he so often disparages.

I can say for… Read more »
