The Post Millenial article about dis-invitation of Richard Dawkins
*Dawkins criticizes Islam but ignores that it was the West that worked with Islamic fanatics to destroy reformist secularism in the Muslim world
(1) Saudi Arabia 1920s:
The US and Britain put the Wahhabi Sauds in control of Saudi Arabia, accepting radical Islam in return for control of oil. Saudi Arabia has been the main supporter of Sharia and Jihadism around the world.
(2) Pakistan 1947 onwards:
The US has armed Pakistan's Islamic governments, even when they were engaged in genocide against Hindus and other Bengalis in Bangladesh in 1970.
(3) Iran 1953:
The US and Britain overthrew the secular Mossadeq governemnt with the help of Islamic clerics.
(3) Indonesia 1965:
The US supported a military coup against a secular, reformist Suharto government. In the course of the coup, Islamic and millitary death squads marauded against Chinese, socialists, and communists in a genocide that killed about a million. The US Embassy provided names to the military of those who should be killed.
(4) Afghanistan 1979:
The US arms the Islamic fanatics who are murdering teachers and women who attend school under the reforms of the socialist government. The terrorists are even invited to the White House!
(5) Iraq 2003:
The US destroys Saddam's secular government and replaces it with an Islamic one.
(6) Syria 2012
The US arms and trains Islamic rebels fighting the secular Assad government.
(7) Libya 2012
The US arms and trains Islamic rebels fighting the secular Qaddafi government.
Those are just the most prominent examples. The West used Islamic fanatics in order to destroy reformist socialist governments in the Muslim world that were trying to control their own resources for the development of their people.
Dawkins is a Racist enjoying his White Privilege. His is the intellectual privilege of promoting Western secularism as superior while the West destroys secularism in the rest of the world so that Dawkins can have a nice home and full belly.
Well, I hope all apologists for bigoted religions are also shut out so that they stop upsetting moral people with their propagation of vicious holy hate which demonises and dehumanises non-believers and incites their murder. If Nazism had a God tied to it, it would suddenly become a protected ideology too and people would be called haters for criticising it, leading to anyone calling out Nazism being no-platformed. There isn't a level playing field today when it comes to the condemnation of hate: some of the very worst hate is protected solely because it has a fairy sitting on top of it.
Why are you posting this same message re Trinity College Dublin’s student union disinviting or de-platforming Richard Dawkins again? I have already replied in length to your first post on this matter, and I note that you have not seen fit to acknowledge my response!
