As some may already know, Richard Dawkins got booted from a science panel for re-tweeting a funny and accurate video “Feminists Love Islamists” that portrays feminists negative light. The video is correct that feminists give cover to Islam, a religion that is inherently oppressive and misogynistic, while attacking harmless Christians. In their distorted worldview, truth and reality are racist, according to the left.
Dawkins was scheduled to speak at the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism which will take place in New York City in May, but on Thursday organisers issued a statement concerning his participation.
“The NECSS has withdrawn its invitation to Richard Dawkins to participate at NECSS 2016. We have taken this action in response to Dr. Dawkins’ approving re-tweet of a highly offensive video.
This is just the latest in a long line of harmless scientists being persecuted by the SJ-left for expressing or merely being associated with views that run afoul of the PC establihsmnet, earlier examples bieng Larry Summers (observing and reporting biological reality), Brendan Eich (campaign donation opposing gay marriage), Matt Taylor (Shirtgate…wearing a shirt that feminists didn’t like), Jason Richwine (politically incorrect PDH thesis about immigration), and Tim Hunt (resigned after making a harmless joke about women in science).
With the exception of the usual libs on Huffingtonpost, NYTimes, and Salon, the rest of the internet (Reddit, 4chan, most blogs, 90+% of Twitter and YouTube, etc) stands behind Richard Dawkins. Go to any Reddit discussion..and you’ll find universal agreement defending Dawkin’s right to free speech and freedom of association. Dawkin’s intellectual brand is much bigger than this conference, anyway. They need him, not the other way around.
The funny thing is this came just days after I made a post defending Dawkins and Pinker against bully and shitlib Taleb. I’m sure Taleb would love to take a strike at Dawkins while he’s down, but that would expose his SJ leanings to all his followers, so he can’t.
As for the primaries, it’s still early, and Trump has plenty of time to secure the necessary number of deletes to be the nominee. Even if he loses, he will have left an indelible mark on GOP politics, shifting the debate towards neglected topics such as immigration.
But back to the original point, Richard Dawkins will rise from this controversy in a stronger position than before. There are many people who support him, support intellectual freedom, and freedom of association, and although their voices are silent or drowned out by the leftist cacophony, they will eventually prevail. The left is so desperate now…all they can do is revoke ‘memberships’ as a way consolidating their dwindling ideological fiefdoms, pearl clutching. But the rest of the internet, anyone and everyone who supports free speech, is behind Dawkins.
