Bill Maher shuts down cheers for Alex Jones ban: 'Everybody gets to speak

When former Michigan Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm shouted "Thank God!" about the recent Alex Jones and InfoWars ban from multiple social media platforms, HBO talk-show host Bill Maher had a surprising response.

Maher, who started out by saying "Alex Jones is not my friend, and he tells crazy lies about me," responded to Granholm's exclamation and cheers from the audience, by stating, "If you’re a liberal, you’re supposed to be for free speech. That’s free speech for the speech you hate. That’s what free speech means.

"We’re losing the thread of the concepts that are important to this country," he continued. "If you care about the real American s**t or you don’t. And if you do, it goes for every side. I don’t like Alex Jones, but Alex Jones gets to speak. Everybody gets to speak."

"Annoying as Bill Maher is, he once in a while gets it right," Glenn said on Monday's episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” "That's where we all need to be."

Glenn has been under fire in recent weeks for standing up for Alex Jones, InfoWars and free speech even when it is speech we don't like.
