It is nice to finally here Bill Maher make some sense. I do like to watch his show, and I have watched sense “politically Incorrect” on Comedy Central. It is frustrating to see a guy who is not only very smart, but someone with whom I used to agree on so many issues, delve deeper and deeper in to liberal hysteria. In this clip, he finally calls out the left for showing outrage over guys like Rush Limbaugh for calling Funke a slut, but sitting silently while the Muslim world systematically oppresses and tortures women. Thanks Bill – it is nice to hear you make sense once again.
Here is another video from Tokenlibertariangirl, making the point that abortion is not solely a religious issue. I would only add that it is not anti-libertarian to be anti-abortion. Libertarians are not anarchists who believe there is zero role for government. Libertarians believe that personal Liberty is sacred, and the role of government is to protect the Liberty of the people. With this in mind, one could pose the argument that being pro-abortion is decidedly anti-Libertarian. Allowing for the premeditated destruction of millions of babies in no way protects their Liberty. As Julie points out, it is not a religious issue, it is a moral issue. Many Libertarians are anti-abortion, and this does not mean they are unenlightened, knuckle-dragging, bible-thumpers, as most would have you believe.
