We don’t want to get into the politics of that as such. Keep reading till you get to the punch line.
Anyway, holding forth, Dawkins has said:
Celebrated god-slayer Richard Dawkins has come out in favor of Twitter’s ban of President Donald Trump, insisting free speech is not in danger from Big Tech …
The British evolutionary biologist, who denies the existence of human free will and moral accountability, went on to attack the entire Republican Party.Thomas D. Williams, “Professional Atheist Richard Dawkins Defends Twitter Ban of Donald Trump” at Breitbart
Ken Francis, who tipped us to this story, also writes to say,
The man who says free will does not exist defends Twitter’s CHOICE to ban Trump. But he was very angry about himself being banned from Trinity College Dublin a few months ago. He also doesn’t believe in morality but criticises the Republican party for being immoral.
Well. That prompted a trip through our vast collection of files, probably bigger than the Tombs of the Pharaohs at this point. And what did we see?
A Petition Is Going The Rounds Urging That Richard Dawkins Be Allowed To Speak At Trinity College. ID types are urging people to sign the petition. (October 10, 2020)
Richard Dawkins Is Getting Canceled Again Apparently, when Richard Dawkins said he was an atheist, some people didn’t realize that he rejected Islam along with Christianity (September 28, 2020)
So he was mad about censorship when it applied to him.
Funny how that works.
