British atheist Richard Dawkins issued an tweet on Saturday where he accused every individual with “national pride” of harboring an evil, Hitler-esque agenda.
Dawkins also stigmatized those who support independence from the European Union in his home nation as well as President Trump’s supporters in the United States of being similar to the Germans who got behind Adolf Hitler at the formation of the Third Reich.
The disgraceful tweet can be seen here:
National pride has evil consequences. Prefer pride in humanity. German pride gave us Hitler, American pride gave us Trump, British pride gave us Brexit. If you must have pride, be proud that Homo sapiens could produce a Darwin, Shakespeare, Mandela, Einstein, Beethoven.

Dawkins was taken to task immediately by individuals from across the political spectrum for his divisive remark.
You spent your productive career deeply immersed in biology and don’t know enough about history to pontificate like this. Unfortunately, like many eminent men, you’ve carried over the habit of speaking authoratively about matters you understand to matters you don’t understand.

Nonsense. Italians are one of proudest people in the world. Both at home and abroad. Chinese set up “Chinatown” all over the country. Just because someone loves their country doesn’t mean they hate all others. Doesn’t mean they do either. Just post hoc bs.

I love you Richard but pride is a natural human ‘thing’. I am proud of my kids, my High School, my family, my Scottish heritage. If it weren’t for pride, we wouldn’t have LGBT parades, Black History Month or celebrate MLK day. Respectfully disagree.

While Dawkins’ remark is typical of the Left’s groupthink mindset, there may be an even more sinister agenda afoot behind his comment. Dawkins has made a startling number of statements in the past defending the diddling of children by pedophiles, and the issue has remained on the esteemed academic’s radar for many years.
“I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism, I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and can’t find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today,” Dawkins said, justifying the predatory behavior of a former boarding school official who used to molest him and other students.
Dawkins claims that “just mild touching up” should be permissible by authorities, and these child molesters should have free reign to corrupt more young souls. These are not the end of Dawkins’ statements justifying abuse.
“There are shades of being abused by a priest, and I quoted an example of a woman in America who wrote to me saying that when she was 7 years old, she was sexually abused by a priest in his car,” the world renown scientist said.
Dawkins would then make the audacious claim that belief in religion can be more traumatizing than child molesters victimizing kids.
“At the same time, a friend of hers, also 7, who was of a Protestant family, died, and she was told that because her friend was Protestant, she had gone to hell and will be roasting in hell forever,” Dawkins said.
“She told me, of those two abuses, she got over the physical abuse; it was yucky, but she got over it. But the mental abuse of being told about hell, she took years to get over,” he added.
Dawkins has spoke and written extensively about his stance that physically abusing children isn’t necessarily as bad as teaching them about Christianity or other religious beliefs.
“I have never personally experienced what it is like to believe – really and truly and deeply believe – in hell. But I think it can be plausibly argued that such a deeply held belief might cause a child more long-lasting mental trauma than the temporary embarrassment of mild physical abuse,” Dawkins said.
Although Dawkins loathes the Catholic Church, he was quick to defend them from persecution over the children they have systemically victimized over the course of many decades.
“For all sorts of reasons I dislike the Roman Catholic Church. But I dislike unfairness even more, and I can’t help wondering whether this one institution has been unfairly demonized over the issue [of child sex abuse], especially in Ireland and America,” Dawkins wrote in his popular book God Delusion.
“We should be aware of the remarkable power of the mind to concoct false memories, especially when abetted by unscrupulous therapists and mercenary lawyers,” Dawkins wrote, denigrating the testimony of the whistle-blowers who have come forward exposing Catholic Church abuses.
Mr. Dawkins should perhaps re-examine his own questionable ideology before judging the supposedly “evil consequences” of his nationalist opposition.
US Virgin Islands Attorney General Demands Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs
This could get interesting.
The Attorney General of the US Virgin Islands is requesting the flight logs Jeffrey Epstein’s private aircraft in a new lawsuit against the deceased pedophile billionaire’s estate, according to new reporting from the Mirror. The development has reportedly sparked ‘panic’ among supposed former contacts of Epstein, who fear their relationship with the disgraced financier being publicized.
This is a game changer in investigations into Epstein’s sex trafficking empire, because it could reveal new information on who actually visited the financier’s infamous ‘pedophile island’ of Little Saint James in the US territory. Flight logs of private aircraft often include records of individuals who travel aboard them. Former Epstein pilot David Rodgers revealed that Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Prince Andrew flew aboard Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet when he personally released flight logs in 2009.
Bill Clinton continues to deny ever having visited Little Saint James, where Epstein is known to have engaged in routine sexual abuse of trafficked underage girls. However, two eyewitnesses verified for their former connections to Epstein, including trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre and island handyman Steve Scully, have both spoken publicly about seeing Bill Clinton in person on the island. So someone’s lying.
The subpoena in USVI Attorney General Denise George’s lawsuit against the Epstein estate also demands information about any and all pilots Epstein employed to transport him to his private island.
George’s lawsuit makes claims of aggravated rape, child abuse and neglect, human trafficking, forced labour and prostitution, seeking relief for Epstein’s crimes. The pedophile billionaire, who escaped real consequences for his sex crimes through the power of his personal elite network when charged with child prostitution in 2008, is said to have committed suicide under suspicious circumstances while awaiting trial on trafficking charges in a New York federal jail last year.
