Colbert Interviews Ayaan Hirsi Ali

If you're familiar with her writings and public appearances, then you probably already know that despite the fatwa issued against her, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a fearless iconoclast who is courageously fighting to protect women's rights against the oppressive power of absolutist religious dogma on the one hand (things like Sharia Law and such), and the indolent Western attitude of relativism that's too scared to judge any culture lest it be considered intolerant, on the other.

In the following interview, she talks to Stephen Colbert, and confesses her love for certain philosophers. I'm not on that list, but I'm going to assume that's because she's being shy... or playing hard to get :)

If you haven't already, you should watch her short film Submission.
