Bill Maher on Islam: “When There’s This Many Bad Apples, There’s Something Wrong with the Orchard” January 10, 2015

Bill Maher on Islam: “When There’s This Many Bad Apples, There’s Something Wrong with the Orchard”

On last night’s episode of Real Time, Bill Maher and Salman Rushdie discussed the Charlie Hebdo attacks, leading Maher to reiterate his criticism of Islam: “When there’s this many bad apples, there’s something wrong with the orchard.”

The conversation on their end focused on how the right to free speech must be upheld, regardless of the critics of the cartoonists who felt they shouldn’t have poked fun at certain topics or should have been more respectful:

Rushdie was personally bothered by the “I’m for free speech, but…” brigade, coming out in defense of Charlie Hebdo… sort of. He told Maher the West must not “give a fucking inch” when it comes to free expression and standing against such radicalism. Besides, he asked, “what would a respectful political cartoon look like?”
