In an interview with the Las Vegas Weekly, Penn Jillette talks about why there hasn’t been a Bullshit episode on Islam:
Are there any groups you won’t go after? We haven’t tackled Scientology because Showtime doesn’t want us to. Maybe they have deals with individual Scientologists—I’m not sure. And we haven’t tacked Islam because we have families.
Meaning, you won’t attack Islam because you’re afraid it’ll attack back … Right, and I think the worst thing you can say about a group in a free society is that you’re afraid to talk about it—I can’t think of anything more horrific.
Of course, it might please some Islamic fundamentalists to hear you say that you won’t talk about them because you’re afraid … It might, but you have to say what you believe, even it if pleases somebody you disagree with—that issue comes up all the time in moral discourse.
Penn Jillette and Bullshit, the show that has ridiculed virtually everything, won’t cover Islam because he’s afraid Muslims will kill his family.
Religion of peace!
What will it take before people will admit to the elephant in the room?
In the 80s Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Empire what it was: An Evil Empire.
Everyone who wasn’t a Soviet stooge or a useful idiot already knew communism was evil but in the corridors of power it was an evil that none dared (publicly) call by name.
Now we have a similar problem with Islam.
A religion so evil that people are afraid to criticize it out of fear for their lives.
Who will stand up to the evil and like Reagan, call it what it is?
I can tell you one thing, it damn sure won’t be Obama.
