Richard Dawkins found out that there is no reason or ration with feminists who took offence at a link on one of his tweets.
The link pointed out the obvious fact that refugee rape was hidden from the media and news channels as well as do the feminists.
And so the cancelled his invitation and labeled the video as “hate speech”.
“The Northeast Conference on Science & Skepticism has withdrawn its invitation to Richard Dawkins to participate at NECSS 2016.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.”
Of course, there is no freedom of speech when they disagree with the speech.
How can not be skeptic about The Northeast Conference on Science & Skepticism.
As the feminists started ganging up on Dick Dawkins, he deleted the tweet.
And then was he cancelled citing “consequences for sharing hateful stuff”
As usual it doesn’t make sense to a rational person, including Richard who indentifies as a feminist himself and said he had “faith in the goodness of humanity”.
The lesson here is that men can call themselves feminists for years, but the slightest transgression will bring a raking over hot coals.
The more famous that man, the better.
