Bolsheviks always devour the Mensheviks

In which Richard Dawkins is disinvited by a Science and Skepticism conference:
Professor Richard Dawkins has had an invitation to speak at a science event withdrawn by organisers for sharing a "highly offensive" video mocking feminists on Twitter.

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“The NECSS has withdrawn its invitation to Richard Dawkins to participate at NECSS 2016.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. We believe strongly in freedom of speech and freedom to express unpopular, and even offensive, views. However, unnecessarily divisive, counterproductive, and even hateful speech runs contrary to our mission and the environment we wish to foster at NECSS. The sentiments expressed in the video do not represent the values of NECSS or its sponsoring organisations.”
Please. They believe in freedom of speech and the freedom to express offensive views about as strongly as they believe in God, the Resurrection, and the Holy Virgin.

Hehe, it's a shame Dicky Dawkins is getting close to retirement age. Would have been fun to throw him to the SJW sharks.

He seriously tweeted the Monty Python reply in response? Best thing I've ever read of his.

Dawkins doesn't just advocate aborting downs babies (and presumably other disabilities) he states that it is immoral not to but pointing out that feminists and islamists used the same playbook is what is beyond the pale...

Yep, it's the "However" that is the tell-tale. So much for the "strongly" part.

Freedom of speech -- as long as I approve.

Otherwise, NO freedom of speech!! Got it!!

@14, of course Islamists love feminists, given what happened in Cologne, Hamburg, and Sweden. Oh, you don't mean that kind of love.
Make love, not war!

Wow, Dawk and his pals still promoting the worship of wrong pigheadedness, boomers gotta boom. They dont want us or anyone else to have anything such as faith or the freedom from feminism.

Evil loves and sides with feminism every time. the pro death, anti family league of vampervs are groomed for evil.

In which Dawkins finds out that Atheists are usually at the bottom of the progressive "pet of the day" hierarchy list. Come on Dick, it goes : Muslim, Trans, Gay, Feminist, Black,...then maybe Atheist.

Blogger Mastermind January 30, 2016 7:49 PM  

I spent most of my late teens and early twenties debating atheists online and never in a million years would I have thought that ten years later Dawkin would be one of the saner and more reasonable atheist public figures around. It's not even as if he's changed much, he's simply been donkey punched and run over by far crazier and more evil people like POZ Myers.

If twitter means anything, Dawkins has a lot more love and support going on than the group that banned him. Peak SJW somewhere in sight?

Anonymous zen0 feralit0 January 30, 2016 10:50 PM  

SJW's are like rats. If they get enclosed and the food source dwindles, they will devour each other.

I had rats coming in the greenhouse once. Set a trap. Went in next day, there was a rat head in the trap. No body. Either his buddies bravely severed his body and took it home for a proper burial, or they ate it.

Yum, Yum.

Really witty burn. I'm not being sarcastic. Would be an effective sniper shot against badly behaving atheists.

Blogger Timmy3 January 31, 2016 1:06 AM  

Atheism is almost like a religion. I suppose they want to have Freedom of Speech beyond the boundaries they set around their conference. I do agree with them that atheism has nothing to do with Freedom of Speech and they can have any meeting they want. What's odd is what does that have anything to do with what Dawkins will speak about. They are extending Dawkins personal views as values they may or may not support. Science and Skepticism has values? Like religion?

Dawkins is a good old fashioned high church Athiest. He sounds like the vicar who you don't trust near the offering or the choirboys.

And he is now being shredded by those who would hang those who sing. Or think. Bolsheviks? Nah. More like Khmer Rouge.

Richard Dawkins has always been offensive. They were fine with it as long as he was offensive to Christians, and barely tolerated it when he was offensive to Muslims. But dare to mock feminists? Or even just re-tweet something anti-feminist? That's totally unacceptable.

The irony is that these people are the most dogmatically "religious" people on the planet. Their political faith puts my faith to shame.
