Bill Maher is calling for the end of fraternities.

The host closed out his "New Rules" segment on "Real Time with Bill Maher" Friday night with a plea to the president.

"New rule," Maher said. "Before he leaves office, President Obama must send in the National Guard to desegregate American's last bastion of societal-approved racism: college fraternities."

Maher went on to compare fraternities to the Islamic State group because of the hazing techniques used by some in the Greek system.

"Since 1970, there's been at least one hazing-related death every year as pledges routinely endure alcohol poisoning, sleep deprivation, waterboarding, being dressed in diapers, buried in trash, force-fed cat food," he said. "Jesus, why not just pledge ISIS?"
