Karen Armstrong is wrong, wrong, wrong on Bill Maher

Why is Karen Armstrong famous?… If you don’t listen to National Public Radio or watch TED, you might not know who Karen Armstrong is.

Left-leaning media regularly trot out Armstrong to reassure the masses that Islam is a religion of peace and that Christianity and the West are responsible for the world’s woes…

…On November 23, 2014, Salon published an article with this lengthy title, “Karen Armstrong on Sam Harris and Bill Maher: ‘It Fills Me With Despair, Because This Is The Sort Of Talk That Led To The Concentration Camps'”

You really don’t have to read the rest of the article after that rather clunky and alarmist headline, now, do you?…

Everybody knows what the allusion to “Sam Harris and Bill Maher” is all about.

On September 26, 2014, on his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Maher tweaked his fellow liberals. Liberals rant and rave about sexism, he said, as long as the accused are Republican Christians…

…Salon asked Armstrong about the October 3 episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Armstrong responded “It fills me with despair, because this is the sort of talk that led to the concentration camps in Europe.”

Salon asked “Is Islamophobia today comparable to anti-Semitism?” and Armstrong answered that Islamophobia is “deeply enshrined in Western culture. It goes right back to the Crusades … We’ve recoiled, quite rightly, from our anti-Semitism, but we still have not recoiled from our Islamophobia”…

    The Crusades??? The Crusades were responses to Islamic aggression you dumb bitch!!!

    Islamophobia, if it exists at all, is nowhere near the level Muslims, and anyone, should be concerned about.
    Most people know very little about Islam. But when they do… maybe Muslims can start getting concerned about Islamophobia. Cause people will not like what they see.

      From her recent interview in the Star….

      ‘You can’t talk about the evils of Islam when you know nothing about the religion.’

      Because she has such a positive opinion of Islam, she thinks anyone who has a negative opinion of Islam is naive.

      How naive is she?

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    The Toronto Star interviewed her a little while back and it was the same hot air she’s been blowing for years.

    I pity anyone who has to read and review her latest book.
    (Or any of her books, for that matter.)

    Armstrong’s willfully blind to the threat of Islam.
    There’s no other reason for someone to know as much as she knows about Islam and still hold a favourable opinion of the ‘religion’.

  • Karen Armstrong is a profoundly dishonest woman. https://www.google.ca/search?q=Jihadwatch+karen+armstrong&oq=Jihadwatch+karen+armstrong&aqs=chrome..69i57.11894j0j8&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=0&ie=UTF-8

    That being said, I understand what’s going on. It’s all about me. The Universe is trying to make me side with/like Bill Maher.

    No, Universe, no. I will die on this hill.

      In other words, I wouldn’t screw her with Matt Damon’s dick.

    Karen hung up her nun’s habit, years ago, didn’t she?

    “In the Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of the “gap-toothed wife of Bath”. As early as this time period, the gap between the front teeth, especially in women, had been associated with lustful characteristics. Thus, the implication in describing “the gap-toothed wife of Bath” is that she is a middle-aged woman with insatiable lust. This has no scientific basis, but it has been a common premise in folklore since the Middle Ages.” (Wikipedia)

    Why doesn’t she just convert already. Its ok by me if she wants to wear a garbage bag over her head.

    • Curly Bill

      She’ll fit in. She looks like a goat. She should be popular.

  • Allan

    What an incredibly stupid useful idiot. If she is so sure that Islam is a religion of peace,she should go to Iraq, Saudi Arabia(drive a car, go to a christian church). She’ll be the first to undergo a cliterectomy.

  • oigevalt

    She was on CBC radio yesterday. After 12 seconds of listening to her drivel, I was gagging so hard I almost drove into a pole. She should be banned from the airwaves – she is as dangerous as drunk driving.

      LOL!

      Friends don’t let friends listen to the CBC.
