Bill Maher managed to shock quite a few conservatives last month when he not only dared criticize Islam but defended liberal Western culture as objectively better: “vast numbers of Muslims across the world believe … that humans deserve to die for merely holding a different idea or drawing a cartoon or writing a book or eloping with the wrong person,” said Maher.

Some regular viewers feared that speech was Step 1 in Maher’s transformation into a neocon, but Maher contended this Saturday night that Michael Brown “…wasn’t a gentle giant. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not like a gentle giant.” Maher added that Brown certainly didn’t deserve to be shot for it, but his questioning of Brown’s sainthood riled liberals.

No need, it’s already been done.
