Bill Maher took on America's latest march to war during the final minutes of "Real Time" on Friday, arguing that the fear of ISIS has been blown out of proportion. "They're selling terror and boy are we buying," he jabbed.
After calling out conservative war hawks like Lindsey Graham, "the Senate's own Blanche DuBois," Maher made a provocative point about why the disturbing videos of journalists being beheaded by ISIS don't justify the fear most Americans are feeling. Saying he admires the courage of the journalists who were killed, he noted, "When you choose to live among cut throats, you might get your throat cut. Do Americans living here really think they're going to be next?"
Maher then went on to argue that a more direct threat to the lives of Americans is Monsanto, another group with a name that's "simultaneously cool-sounding and stands for pure evil."
"Real Time With Bill Maher" airs Fridays at 10:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
