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?

This woman is delusional and a true Liberal fool! Nothing can be achieved if a person is hell bent on what she will say next at the cost of putting on her listening ears and HEARING. So close-minded that it is all or nothing, you are on the side of warm and fuzzy diversity, or you are a bigot, inciting hatred and intolerance. Liberal diversity never applies to the views and opinions of others that do not match their worldview exactly. She sets to pit every oh-so tolerant Liberal up against all other Canadians, insinuating that those of us that voted differently are simply a bunch of rednecks. It is extremely obvious that the 61% of Canadians (that did not vote Liberal) but convey valid and justified concerns about the Syrian Refugee Express will be ignored, because we do not count! Period! We who only ask that the vetting process be done as it would always be done, abroad and in due course, however long it takes, obviously have no value in the Liberal world.

She was annoying as hell, and she kept interrupting everyone. Shut up and let someone else talk. was she drinking before the show?

Guy Fraser – There is nothing to take comfort in. As aMinister of the Canadian government, everyone outside of Canada thinks she speaks for the majority of us. That means you and I as well.

Haha she looks like the fool she is! She doesn’t even know what she is talking about.
I like how he keeps saying Liberals when she is actually a Liberal … in America they are called Democrats.
I think she has vapor lock in her brain. She keeps saying the same BS even in the face of facts that prove she is wrong.

Bill can be a smug ass at times for sure. But, he was never Jewish. He was brought up Catholic.

Less than four more years people. So proud to be represented by such an enlightened government. Freeland, like Justy, and the rest of our new Lib government are an absolute total embarrassment on the world stage. I truly wish they would quit using phrases like “Canadians”, and “we in Canada”. Typical of the smug left to assume they speak for all of us. With such quality people touting Canada’s policies around the globe, I’m sure there will be some more Nobel considerations for our Canadian ministers. And, if not, they can just pull one out of their arse like Dr. Kirsty. Now, let’s talk about the real issues people-global warming!

Maher is a complete socialist asshole. But his Jewish heritage appears to be in conflict with his socialist values.

Ah, cognitive illusion. It hurts.

Figures it’s a Canadian liberal that goes live to piss off Americans driving another wedge between the US and Canada – picking up where Chretien’s brother left off.

the breakdown of the $1.2 billion is $8000 per “refugee” per year… who lives on $8000 per year? and lets not forget liberal leader, ecoterrorist gerald butts, upcoming green revenue tools on everything.. lie after lie but the empty headed progressives reality demands these lies..

Embarrassing doesn’t begin describe Ms Freeland’s appearance. Her inabilty to comprehend the simple idea that “some Muslims” have abhorrent values that no civilized human can defend makes all Canadians look like fools. Is she married? If not, I think Ben Affleck is single right now. Sadly, they are in complete agreement. Witness him make a complete ass of himself when this very same notion was discussed on the show about a year back.

MM. Maher has on rare occasions been spot on about things.

Chris M., how much did you win? I have to say you played your part well. I do not think it is a bad idea to play the devil’s advocate once and awhile, because then it reinforces the values we all believe in. I hope you continue to post on here. I guess the real trolls no better not to even comment on this story, probably afraid how much they see Chrystia Freeman as representative of themselves.

It’s funny that conservatives think Bill Maher is the devil and a horrible person for his view against Christianity – unless he is attacking liberals in some capacity.
commented 2015-11-21 12:16:03 -0500
I am so embarrassed that she represents Canada. We all look like naïve dolts thanks to her. Typical hug a thug Liberal crap.
commented 2015-11-21 12:12:57 -0500
I sincerely thank Bill Maher for this clip as it shows just what ordinary Canadians are “up against” with the likes of Chrystia Freeland in government. She does not comprehend the extent of the horrors of Sharia Law! She is only focused on the followers of Islam as being “victims”. And, Canadians who dare speak out are labelled as bigots, Islamaphobes, etc. Our Canadian values are at odds with many of the doctrines of Islam!

The government of Canada has the same talking points as what we saw in Ezra’s reports from Paris, no surprise there.
Lol BZ, I don’t know about the new rifles that we use now , but my old FN c1 sure left a dent in the scull.

Great piece…I love to see that fool get bitch slapped by her betters…!

What a total embarressment this Chrystia Freeland and the Liberals of Canada are. Bill Maher and the other guests couldn’t believe how stupid, dumb and naive this woman is. She thinks muslim honor killings, female mutilation, chopping heads off etc., are just misunderstandings. Chrystia Freeland sounded like the PR manager for ISIS. What a fool this woman is. Harper was right, these Liberals are not ready now or will ever be ready to govern. Chrystia Freeland embarressed the country of Canada.

Chris Mallory, I was preparing a comment on your first two posts, then you made your third post and instead I applaud your incite as to how each side make their argument. I have had posts deleted on the CTV website so agree censorship is part of their controlling the message. I cannot over state how important it is to have the Rebel fighting the good fight to save Canada as we know it, that is a country with ten provinces and three territories. This new Government, and the likes of Ms. Freeland, do not represent the values of all Canadians, and particularly not in this part of the West. We are tolerant but we do want to stay safe and free from fear.

Yes now that this Libtard was on there telling everyone we are all the same, Americans now think that Canadians are all idiots. If this is a representation of what makes up our Members of Parliament.
Shut down debate is all she is about.
A real piece of Liberal work this thing is. It’s proven that the Liberals have put in a cabinet of imbeciles like Dion for foreign affairs, this woman and all the climate change advocates that are in a panic that we are at risk from our environment instead of dangerous ideologies. These are the appeasers that will sink Canada to a new low of third world country.

Does this idiot even remember when Christians were so fought against to get out the most minute hint of their religion from our government and our schools? I personally remember a story of a teacher somewhere that was jumped on for wearing a cross around her neck on her necklace. It couldn’t be visible as it was offensive to the left wing liberal progressive boneheads. But today we have an acceptance of a religion that is totally into government and education, educating people that they have no tolerance for anything that opposes their religious ideals. And to prove it, they’ll kill you for it. They openly teach hate for Jews as well and cause violence in any direct contact with those people.

I tell you Liberals are the appeasing asshole of the Neville Chamberlain era that only will be happy once we’ve all rolled over for an insane ideology to rule us in the name of “diversity”.

Left wing media journalist, Born and bred left wing. Liberal and NDP lawyer Parents. Brought up entitled, turned International Trade Minister. She seemed to really want to ignore some of the reality thrown at her, female mutilation, murdering rape victims, and much more under Sharia Law, but that is what Liberals do. She even somewhat tried to defend it. She is just following the Liberal Mandate. I’m sure she knows better, but one would not want to be at odds with the mandate. Unbelievable.

Trudope has one terrorist loving whack job in Freeland. Libtards will put Canadians lives at risk for votes.

Freeland is a dupe, a useful idiot who is no better than CAIR-Canada who are “…willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends…”. Except Chrystia is an apologist for Islamists as a mindless stooge. A willfully ignorant moron.

I would like to apologize for all the stupid posts I have made in the last few days. A liberal colleague of mine bet me that I would receive threats and derogatory comments if I shared liberal views on a conservative website. I countered that liberal commenter’s are far more vile, angry, and threatening. The rebel commenter’s have wanted nothing more than to debate me on facts and merit. Guess how many threats he received from so called progressive lefties? Many (numbers would have been higher but liberal websites delete the majority of conservative comments). Sorry for that, I just could not turn down such a bet. Keep fighting the good fight. And Sean Penn, do something constructive with your life.

Hi Chris,

Please defend Islam on it’s merits. I know a little about the Q’uran and would like you to iterate what about it you feel merits such a relative opinion as yours.
commented 2015-11-21 10:28:41 -0500
Freeland is obviously ignorant of the the fact that Isalm comes tightly wrapped in Sharia’h law. The religion and the legal code are inseparable with the latter calling for different rules, not just between men and women but, between Muslims and non-Muslims. Freeland would do well to try to understand what she is speaking about before embarrassing her fellow Canadians in the public square.
commented 2015-11-21 10:22:20 -0500
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.
commented 2015-11-21 10:18:00 -0500
Once again Chrystia proves that great things come in small packages. She proved her intellectual and moral superiority in the face of the ever present bigotry of the middle aged white man. Diversity truly is our greatest strength. I have never been prouder to be Canadian.
commented 2015-11-21 10:04:41 -0500
Why is it when I watch any of our liberal leaders, whether it be Trudeau or any of his minions, I feel embarrassed? I really try hard not to, but they all make me embarrassed for them…….sad.
commented 2015-11-21 10:02:06 -0500
What is she trying to argue? You know when it is bad when liberals make other liberals look stupid. Chrystia Freeland is the classic example of many liberals who cannot process actual facts backed by math and science even when it is liberals giving the information. She showed classic liberal form by twisting the information to save face and tried interrupting everyone else who trying state the facts to her. My friends, this is what we will be seeing for the next 4 years from this government. Enjoy!
