The de-colonization of science. Really…

Two talks: one before and one after the Draw Mohammed Day

 

Just for the record:  there was one Mohammed picture that was not a print, but an original painting.  In fact, it had been part of the Draw Mohammed Contest in Garland Texas.  It depicts Mohammed in the classical Marilyn Monroe pose to symbolize the harmoneous integration of Muslims into our Western society.

Thunderf00t: Feminists deplatform Richard Dawkins from science conference

It seems Thunderf00t seems to have a hard time wrapping his brain about this latest CM wrinkle:

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.
