On Bill Maher’s HBO show, (from left) New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele, actor/director Ben Affleck, Maher and neuroscientist/author Sam Harris discuss Islam, Islamic extremism, anti-Muslim bigotry, Islamophobia, etc.
It all sounds vaguely familiar, doesn’t it?
Affleck may be an excellent actor/director, but he comes across as a rather ill-informed jerk. (Maher comes across as a somewhat better-informed jerk.)
I especially liked what Kristof had to say, and I wish he had been allowed more time to say it.
