"make the case against Trump prior to the election"And then PZ Myers attacks him:
please listen, you Hillary voters
"bound to be ineffective in stopping the spread of Islamism"
we need to kill the Moslems
"it is also internally inconsistent"
ignore the inconsistencies in my own position
"opposition to Trump’s order is thoroughly contaminated by identity politics and liberal delusion"
your Trump hatred is wrong
"hire fascists to do the job liberals won’t do"
we need fascism
"speak about the ideological roots of Islamism and jihadism"
we need to snuff them by any means possible
"further provoke and empower Trump"
"terrifyingly blunt (and even illegal) countermeasures by the Trump administration"
We can only hope.
"you are part of the problem"
Shut up and let the fascists get the job done.
“Identity politics” is racist code ...Myers writes about identity politics a lot, and then tells us that it is racist code. Isn't he just telling us that he is a racist?
black people are not more closely related evolutionarily to gorillas than are white people. ..
I reject the politics of white heterosexual male supremacy ...
Sam Harris ... is able to condemn Trump without reservation ...
“Identity politics” is a far right dog whistle. The only identity politics being practiced is a refusal to accept the privileges of being a white man. ...
I have a moral duty to defend Muslims from oppression, violence, and discrimination. I am also able to recognize that someone identifying as Muslim has not confessed to being an Islamist on jihad. ...
At the March for Science, we are committed to centralizing, highlighting, standing in solidarity with, and acting as accomplices with black, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander, indigenous, non-Christian, women, people with disabilities, poor, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, non-binary, agender, and intersex scientists and science advocates.
Why does he keep saying crazy things like comparing black ppl to gorillas? He couldn't keep his job and following if he kept denigrating black ppl as being like gorillas. So what is a good racist to do? He can cite his expertise in evolutionary biology to keep telling us that black ppl are not just gorillas in disguise.
His defense of Muslims is so weak that it is silly. He as might as well say, "I am not supposed to badmouth Muslims so I will point out that they have not all been convicted of murder."
That "March for Science" statement sounds like a joke. Is there a science of white-Christian-male hatred?
Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright tweeted: "There is no fine print on the Statue of Liberty."
This sounds too dopey to be serious. Aren't the pro-immigration folks the ones claiming that there is some fine print on the statue?
My theory is that the lizard ppl have such complete control over ppl like Harris and Myers that they have to say stupid things as code.
Suppose you were a blogger in North Korea, and criticizing the govt or Kim Jong-Un could get you executed. You don't like the dictator and would like to express your disapproval, but do not dare. So what would you do? You would praise the dictator in gushing terms that do not make any sense. He would not execute you for flattering him, and your readers might understand that you are writing in code.
Likewise, I think that Harris and Myers could be neo-Nazis of some sort. Their arguments are silly and undermine their stated goals.
