Bill Maher Applauds Osama bin Laden for His Stance on Global Warming, Charles Manson has Similar Stance

It is surprising that any American could ever have kind words for the man responsible for the 9/11 attacks, but it appears that Bill Maher does. In a recent show, he discussed Osama bin Laden's stance on global warming, explaining that he "got it better" than any Republican.
“All right, let me ask -- let me quote another person who is not in favor in this country and that's Osama bin Laden,” Maher said. “He put out a tape last week. And there was nothing about violence or attacking America. See, Lindsay Lohan, people can change. It was about the Pakistani flood.”
Maher read the quote from bin Laden, which suggested the industrialized nations were at fault for the recent flooding in Pakistan.
“And his quote – show it there, he said, ‘Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury,’” Maher said, reading bin Laden’s quote. “‘The phenomenon is an actual fact. All the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear the responsibility for testimony global warming crisis.’”
And based on that statement, Maher determined bin Laden was worthy of praise because they agreed on an issue that Maher’s political opponents haven’t bought into. “Well, I guess my question is, how come a guy in a cave gets it better than every Republican voting for the Senate?” Maher said.
That statement received applause from the “Real Time” in-studio audience, but later in the segment, Maher suggested bin Laden was speaking out in goodwill to draw attention to this crisis in Pakistan because it really didn’t get a lot of coverage in the media.
“Let just say this,” Maher said. “He made this statement because Pakistan – this really didn’t make the papers, but Pakistan had a giant flood this year. And it is the sixth biggest country in the world, and a fifth of it was underwater and 21 million people were displaced. And it was worse than the tsunami.”
Speaking of radical murderers speaking out against global warming, Charles Manson happens to have a similar point of view as Osama bin Laden.
