WATCH: Bill Maher tells Chrystia Freeland: "This idea that somehow we do share values, that all religions are alike, is bulls***.”

Rebel Staff

On last night's episode of his show, outspoken TV host Bill Maher got into a heated discussion about Islam with panelist Chrystia Freeland, Trudeau's International Trade Minister.


Maher’s exchange with Chrystia Freeland, a member of the Canadian House of Commons, came after he opened up his program contending many of the Syrian refugees don’t share many of America’s cornerstone values.

“If you are in this religion, you probably do have values that are at odds. This is what liberals don’t want to recognize,” Maher said. “This idea that somehow we do share values that all religions are alike is bulls***.

That triggered a debate amongst Maher’s panel, but particularly seemed to offend Freeland who pushed back against the HBO host.

“Are you guys saying that the Muslim faith is by definition worse than other people’s?” she asked.

“Yes! The ideas,” Maher countered. “If 6 million people in a supposedly moderate country agree with ISIS. You know, I read this article recently — it was attacking me about my beliefs on such things. And they said, ‘Oh Bill, you paint with too broad of a brush.’ What about Indonesia? The moderate country of Indonesia. And then they went on to say, only 18 percent believe in honor killings.’ Really? So one out of five people in the moderate country your holding up as the moderate country believes if a woman is raped we blame and kill her?”


"You’re saying their ideas are bad?” a seemingly offended Freeland asked.

“Killing women for being raped I would say is a bad idea. Yeah, I do,” Maher fired back as the audience erupted in applause. “Hang me for it.”

Trudeau's Liberals MUST halt plans to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees
until they can guarantee the safety of the Canadian people.

Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?

Freehand is merely spewing Trudeau’s beliefs in regard to the Muslims. All she did was make a fool of herself for Canadians to see what kind of low intelligent idiots now sit on the government benches in Ottawa.

Delectable Lie – is a great book. Written by Muslim Salim Mansur, a professor at London U. He ever so gently but firmly puts the record straight that Muslim culture is NOT equal to our own, and goes on to demand no more Muslims in this country!

The truth is, that moderate majorities are irrelevant. The extremists always drive the agenda, cause, well, they’re extremists that’s why!

Liberals are liberals – in Canada and America. Maher always says Liberals over Democrats.

I like Bill Maher, always have, even though I disagree with some of his politics. He’s an obnoxious Obama lover and sincerely believes the junk science of man made global warming, but otherwise he believes in free speech and that’s what matters most.
One of his best quips: Islam is a religion of peace…there’s a piece of you here, there’s a piece of you there……

Bravo Zulu – we would welcome your reasoned and respectful comments here, the ‘replacement’ for the Comments section for all Post Media outlets. It’s a cool place set up and moderated by former “commenters”, mainly refugees from the Calgary Sun and Toronto Sun papers….cheers!

I watched the show and was not at all amazed at the comments by Freeland. She was defending the indefensible but that’s what Liberals do. Goodale can’t seem to ever use words like terrorists or murderers or Muslim terrorists. Muslims who do not share or are not willing to buy into Canadian values or the American Constitution should not be brought into North America. Period. Why are Sunnis killing Shiites or vice versa? The Muslims interviewed by Ezra in France denied Muslim involvement in the terrorist murders and blamed the attacks on the Jews or on Americans?? They said that Muslims would never perpetrate these activities?? Maher and Hitchens may be atheists but they both clearly see the problem and both have the guts to speak the truth. Where are the liberal women’s libbers when you need them? If Canadian women who minister in the Canadian government will not speak up against the atrocities committed against Canadian women, who will? Absolutely shameful.

Great. We have to expose our Liberal dipsh*ts to the rest of the world.

I always thought Chrystia Freeland, Trudeau’s coach, was a very dangerous woman…and she is…for she would paint all Muslims with a peaceable brush when in fact the minority who are brutes and barbarian must be identified, sequestered and SQUASHED now. This is the only way the truly peaceful Muslims who DO NOT HOLD TO ANY BARBARISM can live here in peace…taking such a stand WILL NOT drive the peaceable ones into the arms of ISIS…it will help them to make their stand for peace without the ongoing threat of ISIS that continually reminds us that the Muslim faith CAN be barbaric, just as Catholic INQUISITIONS in the past centuries reminded us that Catholicism could be brutal, totalitarian and barbarian. By removing the threat of Inquisition, peaceful Catholics could then live IN PEACE without having to defend themselves against the INQUISITORS of the past.

I just saw the coverage of this confrontation on the Global News Network. Of course Global News only showed her one comment that received a little polite response and completely omitted any of the rest of her rude, idiotic, ignorant, illogical rantings. But, as can be expected, Global portrayed it as an example of her strong, admirable defense of our Canadian values.!! Again, another example of our National News Media filtering and presenting news to confirm their own bias. Global News is in fact part of the problem, purposefully creating false perceptions in the public’s understanding of what’s going on.

Ron – great point. Conservatives in particular need to realize that when they’re talking to a Lefty, they have completely different notions in mind, added to their simplification, added to their head-in-the-sand. Everything needs to be stated outright. Thks for the link as well. This was a great phrase of his;

The soft bigotry of low expectations.

Also, I wish Mahar had pointed out the middle ground. It’s not as black and white as moderate vs extremist. There are those that beat up women, rape women, send money to ISIS like groups, use sharia law, coerce their women etc.

Chrystia Freeland is the epitome of what is wrong with Western society and far too many lost lemmings have joined her twisted PC recital. There are some small signs that the tide is turning. We can only hope. Otherwise, the Chrystia Freelands of the world will have us all killed.

IAN KLUGE, “Such juvenile intellectual skills in a government minister are frightening”. Indeed, actually terrifying ! Also, consider that the Muslims themselves, especially women, are victims of this supremacist political ideology masquerading as a religion.
commented 2015-11-21 18:05:13 -0500
Chrystia Freeland’s low powered liberal intellect is fully on display here. She cannot tell the difference between saying "*All* Muslims are ISIS supporters and some Muslims are ISIS supporters. And, like all extremists on any issue, she turns a statement about some into a statement about all so if we take action against some Muslims she claims were want to punish and demonize all Muslims. She also cannot tell the difference between (a) people and (b) ideas. She thinks if you reject the ideas, you are also rejecting the people. Such juvenile intellectual skills in a government minister are frightening.

Dan Mancuso – our world changed in a New York minute, and I for one am glad that I know how it all pans out in the end.

The father of lies is working overtime on the Liberal mind, and Chrystia is a fine example of the effect that he has had on them.

Sorry about the link:
One problem with respect to the debate that took place is that when Maher said “Those values are not our values” or “this idea that somehow we do share values”, what was not defined was what those “shared values” are or who are the “we” who share those values. Quite evident from the exchange that took place Chrystia Freeland and Maher are not the same “ we ” and do not share the same values. Of note, that socialism and Islam as ideologies have much in common in terms of “shared values”, including a belief in a fascist totalitarian system, anti-Israel, and anti-Christian.

Now the whole world can see what a dumb little girl Chrystia is… not even a single brain cell in that odd head of hers.
commented 2015-11-21 17:05:10 -0500
While I understood her to be a bimbo on economic issues, she displayed the same in this exchange with Maher with respect to her presenting herself as some sort of religious scholar. Probably some of the most upsetting, offensive words coming out of her mouth was: “We in Canada are not going to say…” or “We also appreciate…”. “We”? This leftwing idiot does not speak for me!
I don’t agree with much that Bill Maher says, but he nailed it in an earlier interview with Charlie Rose, explaianing that “there is a connecting tissue between” the activities of Islamic terrorists and what they are taught in the Qu’aran and modeled by Muhammad:

It looks like the end of Canada may be coming sooner than expected if this is any indication…

she is the one liberals touted as a financial genius when she first dropped in…and then they found out that she had said herself that she knew nothing about economics.. the dream team ..the deep talent pool.. and the new dear leader .. woe canada

I hope those that voted Liberal will get to view Chrystia in action! If only we had a free press, instead of one that has bent over for Islam.

JEFF GODDARD commented 2 hours ago – father was RC, mother was Jewish. Maher dropped RCism as a child.

The true terrorists are the rednecks who torched the mosque in Ontario, and who attacked the innocent Muslims on the TTC. Christians are blind to the oppressive powers of their words. You should all be ashamed.

I was about to tell you what a village of Christians looked like the day after the islamics beat us to that location – but now you have changed your tune..

I have been banned from cbc so many times I have run out of email addresses, I have been censore4d so many times bt ctv that I do not often go there, I have been tossed from Huff Post – all of my posts were polite, factual and accurate however they simply did not go with the agenda of the censors.

Now the Sun News does not even allow comments anymore. I have stopped going there.

Apology accepted – now go and take on the day.

She kept interrupting because that is another tactic by the Liberals. Does anyone remember when a conservative MP, was going give a lecture about pro-life, at some ON university, and I may be wrong on the topic, but when he went to speak, this giant vagina man jumped on stage, and started making a scene with a few others. And the security told the MP that he had to leave. So Liberals like to act out when they don’t want to hear an opposing view, and our cowardly security and police forces won’t help you, the one being wronged, you are the one told to leave. They know nobody in the police services gives a damn about our rights, unless you are a childish Liberal. so they are rewarded for this tactic. This is reflected in Chrystia’s behaviour!

My god! If this woman is representative of the views held by the liberal government in this country then we are well and truly F..ked!
