In this clip from HBOs recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the comedian says what so many of his progressive pals cannot:
1. Our American culture is better than the Middle Easts.
2. American Christians who follow their holy book literally are benign.
3. Islamofascisms bullying to get us to suppress the first amendment cannot be tolerated.
If you acknowledge that our culture is worth defending, if you realize that individual liberty is not negotiable, and that Christian conservatives are in no way comparable to terrorists then you have no business being part of a movement — the political Left — that is dedicated to the promoting the exact opposite.
The day comes for many of us, though, when were willing to stop being cool. Some of us can realize that Freedom is more important.
