Conservatives Can Learn From Bill Maher And Sam Harris
By Chidike Okeem
During a panel last week on Real Time with Bill Maher, both Maher and pop-atheism author Sam Harris spoke passionately against liberal hypocrisy regarding Islam’s casual flouting of basic human rights and reprehensible contravention of liberal democratic ideals. Maher and Harris made significant points about the importance of ideological consistency among liberals.
Many conservatives have commended these two liberal commentators for their comments on Islam and liberalism. What is noteworthy, however, is the fact that Maher and Harris were not primarily concerned about the possibility of conservatives agreeing with them.
