Gloria Steinem tells Bill Maher that Mohammed was “a reformer… for women”

Maher actually says something quite funny for once.

  • Dana Garcia

    So Steinem is a polytheist. Who knew?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      How many Christian theocracies are there in the world.
      None that I know of.

      • Oracle9

        My first impression as well, upon listening to the drivel from Steinem.

  • Stupid feminist is stupid.

    I feel so badly for Christian Bale right now.

    • Clausewitz

      Seems the Botox has finally made it to her brain.

  • ntt1

    notice the way she skates around naming islam and deflects with “monotheism ‘ as if there were several christian or jewish countries that oppress women equally as the islamic ones . just plain dishonest thinking..

    • Mal

      Not limited to plain dishonest thinking, ntt1; it’s plain dishonesty, period.

  • DMB

    I wish she put on a burka go to Saudi Arabia and NEVER be seen or heard from again.

    • She could hook up with the vibrant avant-garde feminist movements of Riyadh.

      • DMB

        Or even become part of some Arabian sheikh sex harem.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          To paraphrase John Crosbie, she should wish that she had been so favoured.

    • Surele Surele

      burka would look just about right on her. just cover her ‘punim’

  • jack burns

    Boy, this old dragon sure got the face that she deserved.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      No portrait of Dorian Grey in her attic.

    • SMC_BC

      I think she looks good for an 81 year old woman, but who cares what someone looks like. What I don’t get is how she ever found a man to be with. What sane guy could stand her company for that long? Really!

  • David

    I missed the funny part. He should have excoriated the old commie.

    • I thought his joke at 2:14 was kind of funny. Given that Maher is a “comedian” almost entirely devoid of wit, whose routine usually just consists of attitude.

      • bob e

        he’s just garbage .. i don’t listen to any vid clips
        by him.
        these two are just not worth anything. i like you, BM,
        much better.

    • G

      “Century Seven…” …. that’s it.. THAT’S his big joke.

      Ooooo what a rib tickler. Holy frig! Is that how low they set the bar for comic talent now?

      • G

        Also, what was that crap the crazy old cat lady said about Mo’s wife being a …REAL ESTATE AGENT (WTF???)

        Yeah, and his kid sister was a software engineer for an abacus company.

      • Clausewitz

        To top it off he stole that joke from Dennis Miller who deliver it in context much better.

  • Martin B

    If there was a cabal of men conspiring to make feminists look bad, they could not do it any better than good old Gloria.

  • Surele Surele

    she is such a ‘has been’ it’s painful to watch her. she is twisting herself into a pretzel (sorry my beautiful pretzel buns) not to say anything negative about Mo. And of course, out comes the “christian theocracies” gun. It would be hysterically funny, if it wasn’t so seriously, on all fronts so wrong.

  • Solo712

    If you are a cold fish like Gloria you don’t need a f*cking bicycle. A bicycle pump will do just fine.

  • trespasserswill

    Presumably she means mohammed sought to “reform” women by slicing off the bits he found inconvenient.

  • Frances

    Ms Steinem has heard too much taqiyya, and has bought it. True, one of M…’s wives was a business woman and rich, but that was BEFORE he married her. Old M had no trouble being a kept man. But after they were married, she didn’t continue her career. The one thing she did insist on during the marriage was that he not take another wife; after she died, it was “game on” for polygamy.

    • But how could she have been rich, before Mo invented women’s rights?

      • Frances

        “…before Mo repealed women’s rights…” Fixed it for you.

  • SDMatt

    “There are women there risking their lives every day.”

    And some morons in the audience clap.

    Well they are risking their lives, just by being. And old Gloria completely sells them out in order to maintain her hate of Western civilization.

    “There’s a special place in hell” indeed.

  • BillyHW

    Western women are such unholy creatures. A baby at 22 would have destroyed your life? What a selfish whore. Christianity and Islam are the same? Mohammed was a reformer?

    Enjoy roasting in hell you infected cunt.

    • G

      😀 LOL!!
      Don’t hold back Billy!!!! Woohoo!

  • Tony

    What you just saw with Gloria is cultural Marxism at its best. Notice how she lumps Islam into a “monotheism” category to make them all the same. She is doing nothing for Muslim women. Bold faced liar.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    The texts do promote peace of the Quran because just parsing some does not define what you believe of a religion. The fact is if you parse the Torah or the Bible you could say terrible things about that too. It has to do with if you are part of an opposite religion of course you are going to say terrible things about a religion you are a not a follower of. Which does make sense because it is an us versus them discussion. I agree with Ms. Steinem on this fact that Christians are no different from Muslims because we attacked Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya and destroyed their infrastructure for oil and economic reasons. That is where the distinction lies. Do not forget about the 1 million Iraqis that died and the 1 million that died in the oil for food program. About 500,000 Afghans died since 2001-02. That is startling and something the interventionists and their supporters fail to realize and Bush and Obama called themselves Christians. These are double standards and hypocrisy by the Christian supporters. All religions that are monotheistic cannot escape what they have created.

    Imperialism by both sides is the problem and why Iran is singled out all the time is startling and something that tells a lot about how propaganda and repeating the same lines over and over again can have an impact on people’s thinking.

    • Jabberwokk

      I had no idea the the Afghan war was Religiously motivated.

  • eMan14

    Proof again that modern feminism gives Islam a pass.

  • Oracle9

    Monotheism. Yeah, that’s the ticket! The Christians!

    Therefore the “cure” is radical leftism.

    Brainwashing is terrible to see, unfortunately the affected have reached critical mass in the West, sealing our fate.

  • Hard Little Machine

    these idiots deserve nothing short of flaming death.

  • John

    Steinem neatly sidesteps the problem by invoking “monotheism”…as though “monotheism” brought down the Trade Center towers. I sometimes think that all western feminism is entirely predicated on hatred of straight, White, Judeo-Christian males. As Maher points out, seeings there are 40-odd sharia run countries where women are clearly second class people, why isn’t denouncing and battling sharia law the cause célébre for rights campaigners and feminists everywhere? We have a situation where there are 40 gender apartheid ‘South Africas’ with a total population close to a billion, and yet the outrage about it is nowhere to be seen.

    Such highly selective outrage can only have been birthed by a midwife steeped in soft racism.

    • Jabberwokk

      “I sometimes think that all western feminism is entirely predicated on hatred of straight, White, Judeo-Christian males.”

      That’s because it is.

      Also the reason they wont go after Islam is because they will be social ostracized by there own and physically threatened by subscribers of Islam. In other words it may/will cost the something. Beating on Jews/Christians cost them nothing. In short they are cowards.

  • Jabberwokk

    Oh course, It’s the evil Christians again. And the Jooooooos!!111one

  • Richard_Romano

    The woman is deranged. How do these people get to where they are thinking like this?
