Sargon of Akkad’s reaction to Richard Dawkins being No-Platformed by Atheism+

 

 

Sargon’s parsing of the incident is very similar to that on the Vlad Tepes blog:

Let’s parse this a little:

“We believe strongly in freedom of speech and freedom to express unpopular and even offensive views.” But in the very next line they qualify that statement to negate pretty much anything anyone at any time and under any circumstances finds offensive for any reason. The language of cultural-Marxism ensues:

“Divisive, counter-productive (but no standard given for what constitutes productive and certainly no exception was made in the previous statement that all speech must be ‘productive’ on this unnamed standard) and hateful, meaning the organizers hated it so it doesn’t count under the former statement of: “We believe strongly in freedom of speech and freedom to express unpopular and even offensive views.”

This is some of the most blatant Cultural Marxist/Orwellian hypocrisy I have seen from a scientific body of sufficient gravitas that a person like Richard Dawkins would consider speaking to.

Yes.

Indeed.

And let’s not forget what Atheism+ had done to Thundref00t when he attempted to apply logic and skepticism to their Third Wave Feminist dogma.

It was such an eye-opening experience for Thunderf00t that he took time from creating “Why do people laugh at creationists” video series to make  “Feminism Versus FACTS” video series.  Here, he applies, ahm, logic and the scientific method to examining what feminists actually say and write and, it sounds surprisingly like the ravings of intolerant religious dogma.

Aside – he documented the process, as it was happening, in the series “Why ‘Feminism’ is poisoning Atheism”.

Which is exactly the parallel so humorously drawn in the video on which Richard Dawkins had commented – and which made him public enemy #1 (well, for now) of the A+ and their ilk folks out there.

 

P.S. – I remember posting the lunatic, crude and rude rantings of the feminist caricatured in this video when she first started shrilly calling people out on the street ‘fuckface’ when they disagreed with her.  Ah, yes, the good old days…

To sum this all up:  I am glad that the SJW’s are finally being called out for the vicious, intolerant, totalitarian, Cultural Marxist pity-whores they are.

    Xanthippa:

    What this shows is that you cannot get rid of religion.

    More precisely, getting rid of belief in the supernatural will not get rid of the human psychological traits that make religion harmful. In a word, fanaticism.

    Religious fanatics do harm, not because they are religious, but because they are fanatics.

    Fanaticism cannot be eliminated just by rejecting belief in the supernatural. All we accomplish thereby is to replace religious fanaticism with secular fanaticism.

    Social justice “warriors” are fanatics of exactly the same type as those who used to burn witches.

    Such secular fanaticism is now rampant. It is just as vicious as religious fanaticism.

    And it is much harder to root out, because it wears a guise of apparent rationality.

    This is not an improvement.

    There is another reason why replacing religious fanaticism with secular fanaticism is a very bad idea.

    The separation of church and state keeps religious fanatics from using the power of government to persecute those who reject their dogma.

    But there is no mechanism for keeping secular fanatics out of government.

    And we see the results everywhere in the Western world.
