This.

There are a lot of Bill Maher-type liberals. The problem is the exceptionally vocal "liberals" who rush to defend Islam no matter what. It's an over-reaction to the blanket hatred of all Muslims that comes from the right.

Reasonable people realize that there are moderate Muslims that need to be defended both from radical right wing bigots here at home and from Islamic extremists in the Middle East.

But you can't advocate overthrowing the government as Muslims do if they follow the precepts of the religion. We need to perform the Inquisition on Muslims....if they want to follow that cancerous superstition, they can go to the hell holes where it's required to practice it.
