Bill Maher mocks Obama for saying the Islamic State isn’t Islamic [video]

And his fans were not happy:

@billmaher that's like saying Jews are peaceful in Israel.

@billmaher Religion is a false concept with no basis in reality. Count your chromosomes and check to see if they match up with humanity.

@billmaher @EJoshuaMiller Sorry but just need to check the history and they will know Isis is not Islamic just like KKK was not Christian.

— Michael Preston (@Mprest13) September 16, 2014

@billmaher Bizarre he would say that. Why.

Bizarre? Actually not.Check out this clip of Maher arguing this very point with Charlie Rose last week. Maher starts out by crushing Howard Dean for say ISIS isn’t Islamic and goes on from there. From Real Clear Politics:

( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe_form = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-form-0e0d2cc5807796173db76ea1762bda65-5418265391078’);
var iframe = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-0e0d2cc5807796173db76ea1762bda65-5418265391078’);
if ( iframe_form && iframe ) {
iframe_form.submit();
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
‘msg_type’: ‘poll_size’,
‘frame_id’: ‘wpcom-iframe-0e0d2cc5807796173db76ea1762bda65-5418265391078’
}, window.location.protocol + ‘//wpcomwidgets.com’ );
}
}

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {
var origin = document.createElement( ‘a’ );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( ‘wpcomwidgets.com’ !== origin.host )
return;

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( ‘object’ !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type )
return;

switch ( e.data.msg_type ) {
case ‘poll_size:response’:
var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id );

if ( iframe && ” === iframe.width )
iframe.width = ‘100%’;
if ( iframe && ” === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height );

return;
default:
return;
}
}

if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( ‘message’, funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( ‘onmessage’, funcSizeResponse );
}
}
if (document.readyState === ‘complete’) { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( ‘DOMContentLoaded’, func, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( ‘onreadystatechange’, func ); }
} )();

We often disagree with Maher, but not on this. He nails it.
