'You're Talking About Hatred!' Bill Maher Panel Ignites over Garland
by Josh Feldman
Bill Maher and his panelists really went at it tonight over the Garland shooting, with Maher and Will Cain standing firm on the free speech argument. Maher called Pamela Geller a "loon" but said, "This is America, do we not have the right to draw whatever we want?"
Maher brought up Charlie Hebdo and said he's a little disturbed by the whole "soft bigotry of low expectations" when it comes to that magazine's critics assuming that "Muslims aren't able to control themselves."
MSNBC's Alex Wagner asked, "Isn't the whole point of free speech not to judge people?" Cain shot back that when people threaten to kill just for expressing opinions, "it becomes virtuous to offend that person… [and] you need to shock them out of their horrible position."
