One of the greatest intellectual defenders of the West in our age is Ayaan Hirsi Ali; full stop. I assume that many of the regulars here are not a fan of Bill Maher due to some of his political views, and as a result may not hit "play." That would be unfortunate. Maher and Salamander may not overlap in our world view in most places, but in this one place I greatly respect the man and firmly stand next to him - it is his steadfast defense of Freedom of Speech and the ideals of Western liberty. Regardless of what you may think of him or Ayaan one way or another, take a few minutes and listen to this interview. Powerful, sublime, and critically important. Sad we don't see more of Ayaan - don't miss this chance.
