‘On American soil?’ Bill Maher slams Dearborn ‘Death to America’ chants

You can add Bill Maher to the list of people who are disgusted with the anti-Americanism of some Michigan Muslims who made headlines for chants that one would typically hear in Iran and not the USA.

On the latest episode of his popular HBO show “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the old-school liberal comic and social critic slammed the chanting of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” that erupted during the International Al-Quds Day event in Dearborn, Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s home district, an ugly scene that Hamas has to be delighted with.

During his conversation with guests Piers Morgan and columnist Gillian Tett, Maher who in the past has been critical of radical Islam brought up the chants.

“Now can I talk about American propaganda?” Maher asked. “Because there was a rally in Dearborn, Michigan it’s a large Muslim population, chants of ‘Death to America.’ I feel like we’ve passed something here.”

“You know, the left has gotten mad at me for many years for talking about Islam, I try not to do it too much because I know it makes them go crazy and I’ve made my point,” he continued. “But it needs to be talked about now.”

“When you start chanting, ‘Death to America’ in America? I got it, Charlottesville was real bad when they were chanting, death to …what was it? ‘Jews will not replace us,’ but on American soil?”

“Here’s the – Tarek Bazzi is the organizer of this? This was the end of Ramadan, International Day of Quds, Al-Quds which was pronounced originally, he said Imam Khomeini. That’s the Ayatollah Khomeini,” Maher said, referring to the radical cleric who inspired the Iranian hostage crisis in the late 1970s.

“Remember him? The Ayatollah Khomeini? Maher asked. “He’s the good guy now. ‘Khomeini he would say to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts upon the head of America,’” he said, quoting the Dearborn speaker.

“Yeah, I heard this before,” he said. “Not coming from America but the great chastisement, we will chastise the infidels. But now it’s coming from inside America? Sorry, gotta talk about this again.”

“No it doesn’t. I like our system,” he said to applause from the audience. “This is America for crying out loud…And there are people who see me say this ‘Oh he’s a conservative now’….I have not changed. I always liked America and thought death to it was bad.”

The Dearborn rant and chants received much negative attention after a video of Bazzi – who whipped the crowd up into a blood frenzy – was posted to social media where it viral and soon ended up in the mainstream media.

The look was so bad that even the White House and Joe Biden’s campaign team came out to denounce them which speaks volumes with the deeply unpopular octogenarian desperate to harvest every vote that he can get from Wolverine State Muslims in a state that could be a backbreaker for his reelection hopes.

Biden is already in deep hummus in Dearborn, dubbed “America’s Jihad Capital” for the deep sympathies for terrorists that are held by many who live there.

Unfortunately, the Charlottesville reference diminished what would been a perfect score and while Maher is far ahead of the pack on the left, he just can’t kick his addiction to the “very fine people on both sides” hoax that continues to be the bread and butter for Biden and his Democrats seven years after the controversial event.
