Reza Aslan: Anti-Muslim Sentiment In America At "Unprecedented Levels" Thanks To Bill Maher

In an appearance on the Fusion network Reza Aslan declared that "anti-Muslim sentiment in this country is at unprecedented levels." Aslan blames the media and "people like Bill Maher."

REZA ASLAN: The problem is that anti-Muslim sentiment in this country is at unprecedented levels, thanks in great part to the media rhetoric and people like Bill Maher who has been saying these kinds of things for a very long time and sort of getting away with it because he's a comedian and people like him, I like him. I think at a certain point, though, there's been a kind of jump the shark moment and I think that people who are smart and engaged are just not putting up with it any longer. And so a much needed conversation is just being had, and not just about the problem of religion and violence, but about the way that we talk about it.
