We all know that UC-Berkeley refused to give a venue to Ben Shapiro because the fascist mob representing the Democrat Left would commit violence were a conservative allowed to speak on campus. (After the public outcry, university officals may be rethinking their stance.)
But did you also know that UC-Berkeley is refusing to allow uber-atheist Richard Dawkins to speak because he has criticized Islam? Specifically, he criticized the bigotry, homophobia, and misogyny of Islam.
It is interesting to know that in the eyes of progressives like these, some religions are more worthy of consideration than others. Islam, generally speaking, is vastly more illiberal than Christianity. Somehow, though, Islam falls under the protecting veil of progressivism.
But of course it does. “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam,” said one prominent Democrat leftist. And the Progressive Democrat Left agrees.
