"I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that," Dawkins wrote. (His most notorious book, The God Delusion, sparked the "new atheist" movement, which firmly denounced all faith.) "Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticise Christianity but not Islam?"


The atheist noted to KPFA, "You say I use 'abusive speech' about Islam. I would seriously — I mean it — like to hear what examples of my 'abusive speech' you had in mind. When you fail to discover any, I presume you will issue a public apology, which I would of course accept in a spirit of gratitude for what KPFA once was. And could become again."


In another tweet, Dawkins criticized the Left's apologies for Islamism. His tweet had a mock conversation between a liberal and a Muslim. "'You're a homophobic misogynist.' 'But I'm a Muslim.' 'Oh, SORRY, I didn't mean to insult your culture.'"

It's the damn Muslims themselves that push this 'hurtful speech' bullshit so they can sink their claws further into the western political system.

There was discussion on KPFA "Free Speech Radio" on a call-in show this morning:

https://kpfa.org/player/?audio=264834

Relevant part starts around 43:00 in.

Sad to hear the station and host being being praised for their 'sensitivity' by some of the callers.

Yeah, I changed my comment. When I heard a bit of it this morning, it was on in the background and I could only hear the tone of voice.
