Is Bill Maher Islamophobic?


by Victoria Jackson

In 2009, Bill Maher announced on his show that “Mohammed” was the most popular name for babies born in the United Kingdom that year. Maher continued, “Am I a racist to feel I’m alarmed by that, because I am…I don’t have to apologize, do I, for not wanting the Western world to be taken over by Islam…?”

Later on CNN, Maher defended his comment, “I don’t feel like I have to apologize for being a proud Westerner…someone who believes in the values that Western people believe in, that a lot of the Muslim world does not, like; separation of church and state equality of the sexes respect for minorities free elections freedom of speech freedom to gather “These things are not just different from cultures that don’t have them…they’re better…I would like to keep those values here.” “If Muslim people are in these societies having babies, at a rate, like, you know, I don’t know, 6-8 times what the other people are having, you can project ahead, and say in 2 or 300 years…you know, if Mohammed is the most popular name now…”

In April of 2013, on HBO’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher, (not a Christian sympathizer,) told Brian Levin that comparing the violence of Islam to Christianity was liberal b**s***.

Maher continued, “There’s only one faith that kills you, or wants to kill you, if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you, or wants to kill you, if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam. So I’m just saying, let’s keep it real.”
