Bill Maher Challenges Liberals on Free Speech

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 10, 2017

Comedian Bill Maher is a star on cable TV. He is also an unapologetic liberal espousing Progressive causes through humor. That has not stopped Maher from criticizing the Left on significant issues affecting society.

Maher, an atheist, has been especially critical of Islam and its penchant for violence. He has also been critical of the Left’s unwillingness to honor what should be a backbone of the movement, free speech. In a recent show Maher said: “Look, I’m not against free speech. Believe me. I’ve been a longtime critic of colleges shutting people up. That is a problem on the left that we need to deal with very much so” and “Free speech should be something we (liberals) own.”

Maher’s dressing down the Left on free-speech came after recent riots at the University of California Berkeley campus. That supposed bastion of free speech rioted in an effort to stop right-leaning provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus.

In an attempt to make excuses for inexcusable behavior, Leftists and their supporters in the mainstream media would define the burning and destruction of property at UC Berkeley as a “protest”. Such behavior has in the past been called fascism.
