    Default Bill Maher Vs Ben Affleck Over Radical Islam

    Affleck really gets his panties in a bunch in this video.



    Watch Bill Maher Make Hollywood Star Noticeably Uncomfortable, Angry During Explosive Debate on Radical Islam: They Will ‘F***ing Kill You’

    Oct. 4, 2014

    It was essentially “Real Time” host Bill Maher and author Sam Harris versus actor Ben Affleck and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Friday night as the panel aggressively debated radical Islam and just how big of a problem it is around the world.

    And things got tense in a hurry.

    Affleck was noticeably uncomfortable and frustrated throughout the discussion, calling claims that there are widespread problems within the Islamic religion “racist” and “gross.” Maher said liberals should stick up for liberal principles that many in the Muslim faith do not value, such as freedom of speech and equality for women.

    When former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele argued there aren’t enough stories on courageous Muslims who stand up against radical Islam, Maher said that’s because “they’re afraid to speak out.”

    “It’s the only religion that acts like the mafia,” he said. “That will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, paint the wrong picture or write the wrong book.”

    Later in the segment, Affleck said the United States has “killed more Muslims” than radical Islamists have killed Americans while asking Maher to lay out his solution.

    “I can show you a Pew Poll of Egyptians, they are not outliers in the Muslim world that say like 90 percent of them believe that death is the appropriate response to leaving the religion,” Maher eventually responded. “If 90 percent of Brazilians thought death was the appropriate response to leaving Catholicism, you would think it was a bigger deal.”


    Kristof alleged that the things Maher and Harris were saying have the “tinge of the way white racists talk about African-Americans.”

    one of the problems we have is that although there are a couple of billion Muslims in the world, less than 2 % live in North America and we do not understand their religion

    the other problem is that 15-25% are radicalized and apparently THEY don't understand the tenets of the Muslim religion either

    if this "ideological" war is to be fought and won, it needs to be fought and won by the 75% of the people who represent the true Islamic religion. no one else will ever win this war

    they say the point of providing humanitarian aide is to aide those who are in a position to approach this from the ideological stand point.

    but it doesn't seem like we are seeing much of it

    I understand that a large percentage of Muslims live in poverty but where is the billion muslim march? how can they not accept that the actions of the radicalized Islamics, unassailed by the rest of the Islamic world WILL certainly lead to Islamic-phobia just as the Crusades created a perception of the entire Catholic church as a war mongering in the Islamic and Jewish population?

    Ex-Islamic State Hostage Stuns Family, CNN Reporter When Asked How He Feels About the Terrorist Group

    Oct. 4, 2014


    World
    A Syrian Kurdish schoolboy kidnapped by Islamic State militants more than four months ago and released in the last few days told CNN he was “terrified” at first by his experience.

    He was taken with other kidnapped boys and entrenched in the Islamic State’s version of the Muslim faith, CNN said.


    They were forced to watch videos of beheadings and amputations and taught to pray at a mosque, he said.

    They also were taken to a school for questioning. The boy told CNN reporter Arwa Damon he was hit with cables but added that some got it worse. Electrocutions. Hangings from a ceiling.

    “When are they going to kill us?” he said he wondered. “Today? Tomorrow?”

    Then the boy said he found out “the truth” that the Islamic State doesn’t slaughter people without evidence — “only if they are infidels.”

    But when the reporter asked the boy what he thought about his terrorist captors, she said his response shocked the room.

    “They are right,” he said.

    Check out the CNN interview below:

    Didn't this same thing just happen not long ago on Real Time with Maher, Dinesh D'Souza, and Arianna Huffington?

    "There's a problem with a significant amount of Muslims."

    "Not all Muslims!"

    "No, not all, but a significant amount."

    "But not all Muslims!"

    "You're not listening to what we're saying. We're saying a significant amount of Muslims are creating trouble."

    "You're racist for saying all Muslims are bad!"

    Jesus Christ, next time someone just punch me in the face instead of watching this happen for a third time on his show. It's like Huffington and Affleck just stuck their fingers in their ears and screamed, "Lalalalalalala!!!!"

    I was really surprised at Affleck's reaction. I knew what his position would be but I did not expect his reaction. It was almost a tantrum with his under the breath comments while the other guest was speaking. It was a pretty laughable display. I also hate that he's playing Batman. . (just wanted to throw that in)

    Are you taking his side because Maher is a douche? Affleck isn't any better in the douchebaggery department. Look, I think that Maher is a fuckin' asshole but he's spot on on this topic. Affleck doesn't even listen to their argument in this video.

    Default Bill Maher Vs Ben Affleck Over Radical Islam

    We're not going to get anywhere if the reply to "There's a problem with Islamic extremists and likely a problem with many conservative Islamics, perhaps a total of 20% of all Muslims," is, "But it's not all Muslims!"

    It's the equivalent of replying to, "There's a violent crime problem in the Black community," with, "Not all Blacks!"

    No shit. No one is saying that. But you can't even criticize the religion publicly without fearing death. That is a fucking problem and we need be real about it.

    Maher thinks all religious people are mentally ill. Tough to take anything he says about this issue seriously.

    There is a huge problem with Muslim extremists in the world but Bill Maher is the last guy I'm going to listen to on the issue.

    Kinda off topic, but it speaks of Maher's character.
