'Merica's wars are good wars, not like them stinkin' Muslims and their dirty Muslim wars, or so says Bill Maher.
Glenn Greenwald was itching to expose Bill Maher's hypocrisy on this issue to his face, and he finally got his chance last night, and boy oh boy did he deliver.
Via Glenn Greenwald:
Last night I was on Bill Maher's HBO show "Real Time". There have always been numerous views of Maher's with which I agree. But he has become one of the most vocal and extreme advocates of the view that - while religion generally should be criticized - Islam is a uniquely threatening and destructive force and that Muslims are uniquely oppressive and violent, and that mentality has infected many of his policy views (see here and here for some comprehensive background; just two weeks ago, he had a fairly typical outburst on this topic). When I was scheduled to do the show, I was hoping that the opportunity would arise to debate these views (or that I could create the opportunity), and last night it did.
