Richard Dawkins event cancelled over his ‘abusive speech against Islam’

You may or may not have heard about this in the news.

Berkeley’s KPFA Radio cancelled a book event with the scientist Richard Dawkins, citing his comments on Islam, which it said had “offended and hurt … so many people”.

According to a report in the Guardian newspaper (24.07.2017):

‘KPFA … informed ticketbuyers that the event had been cancelled. “We had booked this event based entirely on his excellent new book on science, when we didn’t know he had offended and hurt – in his tweets and other comments on Islam – so many people. KPFA does not endorse hurtful speech,” said KPFA in an email to ticket buyers, which Dawkins later published on his website. “While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech. We apologise for not having had broader knowledge of Dawkins’s views much earlier. We also apologise to all those inconvenienced by this cancellation.”’

The article goes on to mention support for Richard Dawkins from Harvard professor and author Steven Pinker:

“Dawkins is one of the great thinkers of the 20th and 21st century. He has criticised doctrines of Islam, together with doctrines of other religions, but criticism is not ‘abuse’,” said Pinker. “People may get offended and hurt by honest criticism, but that cannot possibly be a justification for censoring the critic, or KPFA would be shut down because of all the people it has hurt and offended over the decades.”

According to an article in The Independent newspaper (26.07.2017) Dawkins was flabbergasted by the cancellation and is hitting back at allegations that he is Islamaphobic:

“Far from attacking Muslims, I understand – as perhaps you do not – that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women … I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticise Christianity but not Islam?”

 

 

 

Ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya

I would like to make it clear that Visegrad’s outlook is only opposed to the Islamification of Europe. I have no objection to people practicing the precepts of Islam in countries that are inherently Muslim, such as the Middle Eastern Countries etc. where I respect their intrinsic cultures and values.

I have noticed that there has been a misrepresentation of the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar on some alt-media sites, portraying this as the fault of Rohingya militants – this is a good example of such an article:

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11045/myanmar-rohingya-crisis

The Rohingyas have lived in Myanmar for centuries are have as much right to be there as the Buddhist population. What is happening to them is ethnic cleansing – pure and simple. The military announcements describing what is going on are for the most part a pack of lies (apart from the initial Rohingya militant attacks on some army outposts).

This is a good article I found on the Rohingyas:

A good result for the AfD in the German elections

The AfD (Alternative for Germany)  not only enters the Bundestag but is now also the third biggest party, with 13.3% of the vote and 96 seats. It now has MPs in 13 of Germany’s 16 state parliaments. The party has its stronghold in the east of Germany, which is also in line with the regional state elections.

According to a report in today’s Guardian which hits the nail on the head:

“In many ways this is an anti-Merkel vote, reflecting opposition to her controversial Willkommenspolitik towards refugees, which not only pushed some voters of mainstream parties to switch but also mobilised previous non-voters. The same poll also shows, for example, that 89% of AfD voters thought that Merkel’s immigration policies ignored the “concerns of the people” (i.e. German citizens); 85% want stronger national borders; and 82% think that 12 years of Merkel is enough. In other words, AfD has clearly profited from the fact that immigration was the number one issue in these elections.”

A BBC report today also describes how the rise of the AfD is a direct result of Angela Merkel’s disastrous decision to let 900.000 ‘refugees’ into Germany:

“AfD – Alternative für Deutschland in German – has capitalised on a nationalist backlash against Chancellor Merkel’s welcome for almost 900,000 migrants and refugees in 2015.

When the numbers of migrants arriving in Germany surged in 2014-2015, AfD made that the focus of its party platform. There were contacts with the anti-immigration Pegida movement, which staged weekly marches against what it called ‘the Islamisation of the West’. The report goes onto say, “AfD calls for stricter asylum rules to curb abuse of the system, including vetting of claims in countries of origin that are deemed “safe”. The welfare system can no longer cope with asylum seekers bringing family members over to join them in Germany, the party argues. It says a system designed to help individual refugees is being exploited by unskilled migrants, many of whom struggle to integrate with Germans.”

As a part of its May 2016 election manifesto, the BBC report states that the “AfD would ban foreign funding of mosques in Germany, ban the burka (full-body veil) and the Muslim call to prayer, and put all imams through a state vetting procedure.”

Sweden dying to be multicultural

Projects indicate that Swedes may be a minority in their own country by 20140. Sweden is a country where the elite is very powerful and who are pushing through an ideology at all costs that includes multiculturalism and mass immigration. This fascinating documentary look at how the multicultural experiment in Malmo has failed. After 8 years only 1 in 5 immigrants has jobs.
