One of the original stories that earned Richard Dawkins the accusations of “Islamophobia” (an honor if you ask me) was his following tweet on journalist Mehdi Hasan:
Which, of course, lead to a firestorm against Dawkins. And justly so. How dare anyone fail to “respect” Hasan’s deeply held belief in winged horses!
As it happens, though, Hasan should be disqualified from working for any reputable publication for a much simpler reason: he is pure poison. He calls those who disagree with his worldview cattle. It is interesting that Hasan gets all the sympathy and Dawkins all the vilification for stridency, even though you would never hear Dawkins using such language.
