Bill Maher: The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

Bill Maher stabbed Liberal people metaphorically for the cloudiness in their views on freedom and respect. Bill Maher plays no favorites and is willing to take on any flawed position.  Islam. Religion. Bigots. Fox News.

Despite what Fox News claims, he is not so much left wing as pro-reason and anti-emotion.

The liberal defenders of Islam claim that people that are able to pick up a gun and shoot people, like the two wanna be jihadis that drove from Phoenix to Garland Texas to shoot a hall full of people,  must be defended against word attack because they might get offended. To suggest you can't make fun of silly ideas is itself laughable.

Maher calls it the soft bigotry of low expectations. He is calling out the Ben Affleck's of the world that treat Muslims like useless people that can't defend themselves or take a joke.  Anyone that can strap on a suicide vest needs no defense in any circumstance in any situation.

The point of freedom is not to stop anyone from offending others, no matter what threat of violence might ensue. The point of freedom is that we all understand that we live in a fair and civil society that let's people have offensive opinions WITHOUT the threat of violence for it.
