Friends, I absolutely adore Bill Maher. Not just because he’s witty and entertaining but also because his commentary is almost always on point.
Go to YouTube and look for ‘Bill Maher New Rules’ and you’ll see what I mean.
Moreover he stood by his principles and opposed the invasion of Iraq at a time when most other cowardly media figures were falling into lockstep behind Buchey-Feld, and even though it got him fired.
But Maher has a massive blind spot that badly undermines his point of view and makes it difficult to take him seriously when it comes to the middle east.
And it’s the same problem as his buddy Sam Harris:
When it comes to Israel both men swallow Israeli government propaganda like it was their mother’s milk, and in doing so they both get indefensibly biased against anything related to Islam, including the plight of the Palestinians.
