Another Fake Hate Crime

I’m shocked:

A member of student government at Ohio University has been charged with a misdemeanor after she allegedly made false statements to police about receiving threatening messages.

Anna Ayers, who is a member of the OU student senate, was arrested Monday and charged by the Ohio University Police Department with three separate counts of “making false alarms.” It is alleged that Ayers falsely reported multiple threatening messages, including a “death threat,” which she claims was because of her being a member of the LGBTQ community.

But an OU police department investigation revealed that Ayers’ claims were false. The probe further uncovered that Ayers had “placed the messages herself, prior to reporting them,” according to an OU police statement.

And note just how sincere the activist was:

The Student Senate devoted time to discussing the notes. An emotional Ayers claimed she was “angry, frustrated and disappointed” after the first threat, and called her parents to tell them about it. Because two of the messages were found in her Student Senate desk, the threats were at first believed to have come from another member of the organization.

“Senate will never be the same for me,” Ayers said in front of her Student Senate peers. “The friendships will continue to grow, and our successes will always evoke pride, but the memory of my time in senate and at OU will be marred by this experience. We will all have a memory of a time when this body failed one of its own.”

Ayers went on to call the threat sender cowardly, weak, and worthless, according to the Post.

“You may find me revolting and worthy of a threat on my life, but in reality, it is your beliefs that are repulsive,” Ayers said during her speech in the senate. “You need to get this through your head, you f***ing a**hole: I am proud to be who I am, and nothing you could say or do will ever change that.”

And here’s an article published before the police figured out it was fake.  Watch the university administrators play right into the activist’s hands.  She must have seemed…..credible.

Be careful what you say

From this news article:

Jacinta Brooks, 41, asked a 12-year-old girl to send indecent pictures of herself – the third time she is known to have targeted children.

[…]

Prosecutor Berenice Mulvanny said that police found screenshots of the conversation with the girl along with hundreds of child abuse pictures. Brooks gave no comment during a police interview but admitted she ‘couldn’t argue’ about being attracted to children. Miss Mulvanny said: ‘Brooks knew the girl was underage but sent her sexual messages. The defendant originally pretended to be a 14-year-old boy but soon admitted her real age.’

Oh, there is one more detail:

Brooks, who identifies as a woman and was previously known as Duncan Smart, has previously faced the courts for having sex with someone who is underage and child abuse.

Here’s a pic of Jacinta:

Is Evidence Still Important?

One of the things I  have noticed about Christine Blasey Ford allegations against Judge Kavanaugh is the response from the atheist activist community.  As far as i can tell, there is a unanimous consensus of belief.  That is, the atheist activist community (ranging from Coyne to Myers to Mehta to Harris, along with various organizations) embraces her allegations as truth.  This is worth noting in that the same atheist activist community postures as the champions of reason and evidence.  Many of their leaders have science degrees and are portrayed as experts when it comes to the handling of evidence.  We are then told that it is this mastery of reason and evidence, along with a powerful commitment to reason and evidence, that led them to their atheism.  Which leaves me wondering…..is their consensus of belief (regarding Ford’s allegations) derived from the evidence itself?  Or is the belief more akin to faith?  The only way to answer this question is with a detailed consideration of the evidence.

What’s more, the social justice advocates have been working overtime to frame the Kavanaugh confirmation in dark and sinister terms.

Social Justice Meltdown

The vote to confirm Judge Kavenaugh for Supreme Court Justice has the social justice activists/atheists in a complete meltdown. For example, PZ Myers wrote, “Chuck Wendig eloquently says what I think” and then quotes his twitter storm.

What did Chuck tweet?

There will be renewed calls for civility. Ignore them. They ask for civility as a way for you to grant them complicity in what they do.
Civility is for normalcy. When things are normal and working as intended, civility is part of maintaining balance. But when that balance is gone, civility does not help return it but rather, destabilize it further. Because your civility gives them cover for evil.
Note: this isn’t the same as calling for violence. But it is suggesting that you should not be shamed for using vigorous, vulgar language. Or for standing up in disobedience. Or for demanding acknowledgement and action in whatever way you must.
Fuck Trump. But he’s just the ugly fake-gold mask they’ve put on this thing. Fuck all the GOP, fuck that blubbering, bristling frat boy judge, fuck McConnell, Ryan, Grassley, Collins, every last one of them. Fuck them for how they’ve shamed victims and helped dismantle democracy.
They will tell you to smile, that we need to get back to business, that we gotta heal the rift and blah blah blah — but that’s the desire of a savvy bully, who wants you to stop crying after he hit you, who wants you not to fight back. But you can cry. And you can fight back.
They can eat shit. All of them. They can eat a boot covered in shit.
Winter is coming, you callous fucknecks, you prolapsed assholes, you grotesque monsters, you racists and rapists and wretched abusers, you vengeful petty horrors.

Wow.

I would consider this more evidence to support my hypothesis that social justice advocates are enslaved to the Id.

Tweety Dawk Reduced to Virtue Signaling

Given Dawkins dwindling status as a player in the public arena, I suppose we should not be surprised that he has turned to Virtue Signaling:

The “bullseye” article Dawkins’ links to makes the following claims:

What Thursday’s hearing drove home, however, was that white male rage isn’t restricted to blue-collar guys in diners. 

What distinguished Trump voters was, instead, racial resentment. Furthermore, this resentment was and is driven not by actual economic losses at the hands of minority groups, but by fear of losing status in a changing country, one in which the privilege of being a white man isn’t what it used to be.

But it’s privilege under siege. An increasingly diverse society no longer accepts the God-given right of white males from the right families to run things,

Instead, it’s about the rage of white men, upper class as well as working class, who perceive a threat to their privileged position.

So Richard Dawkins is finally moving toward PZ Myer’s position and has become a vocal opponent of “white male privilege.” 

It is hilariously ironic to watch Dawkins posture like this given the man is a multimillionaire who is descended from slave owners.

Social Justice Atheist Wants to Believe

Atheists love to preen about their supposed allegiance to critical thinking and evidence.  Yet most of us here recognize this posturing is not rooted in reality.  For those still having a hard time believing it, consider something atheist PZ Myers wrote a few days ago:

The latest accuser speaking up about Kavanaugh has a horrific tale to tell, but the most horrific thing about it is that it seems entirely plausible.

He then quotes from the news article:

Swetnick, in the affidavit posted on Twitter by Avenatti, claims that she saw Kavanaugh, as a high school student in Maryland in the early 1980s, and others spike the drinks of girls at house parties with grain alcohol and/or drugs to “cause girls to lose inhibitions and their ability to say ‘No.’ ”

Swetnick said these efforts by Kavanaugh and his buddy Mark Judge were done so the girls “could then be ‘gang raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys.”

“I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh,” Swetnick said.

She also said in her affidavit sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee that in approximately 1982 “I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present.”

Mushy Myers adds:

I’ve mentioned that I was ‘rushed’ by a fraternity once upon a time. It was a whole house packed full of these guys, so I can believe it.

How do you like that for critical thinking?  It’s plausible, so it must be true.  He believes it because, well, it fits with some experience he once had.

Look, those of us who do actually understand how to think critically easily recognize that Myers in engaged in classic confirmation bias.  Myers eagerly embraces the crazy story simply because it fits into the narrative that his mind imposes upon reality.   He is immensely invested in this accusation being true.

Whatever happened to the PZ Myers who once declared, “Nothing must be held sacred. Question everything?”  If he had truly meant that, he might have been spared yet more egg on his face.  For it appears this accuser has a serious credibility problem and is now trying to walk those accusations back.

Is Religious Belief Always Bad?

Anti-religious activist Richard Carrier wrote a blog posting entitled, “What’s the Harm? Why Religious Belief Is Always Bad.”  Carrier comes up with a way to take a common New Atheist talking point and turn it into almost 6000 words of anti-religious posturing.  Let’s have a look at one section where Carrier promises to show “Why All Theologies Are Dangerous.”  He begins as follows:

First, all religions are systems of lies, designed to keep us trapped and controlled by fear. Liberal, conservative. Doesn’t matter.

That sentence alone tells me that Carrier is not a serious thinker and instead is an apologist who is invested in an extreme agenda.  How can we tell?  First, note the sense of absolute certainty.  Carrier has no doubt about his position and is cocksure he is portraying things as they are.  Then, note that part of this sense of certainty entails that “all religions” are “systems of lies.”  Whenever someone begins to posture against “lies,” chances are high that we are dealing with someone who is a) emotionally invested in their viewpoint and b) imposes a black and white perspective on complex issues.  Y’see, it’s not good enough for religion to be wrong or mistaken.  Even deluded is not good enough.  It must be a system of lies.  Lies, lies, and more damn lies.

But then it gets worse.  It turns out the “system of lies” have been “designed.”  And these lies ensnare us and control us with fear.  In other words, Carrier is now thinking like a conspiracy theorist.  For by insisting the “system of lies” has been “designed” to ensnare us, he is effectively proposing a conspiracy – religion is not what it says it is; it is a deliberately designed system out to get you.

The extremist posturing continues:

Social Justice Atheists Don’t Care About Evidence

I don’t think social justice atheists understand the importance of evidence, reason, and critical thinking.  Instead, they seem to prize things like emotion and confirmation bias.

Case in point – social justice extremist PZ Myers.  He wrote the following on his blog:

Here we go again…another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has stepped forward to testify about Brett Kavanaugh’s drunken behavior at Yale. It’s a story vetted by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, two journalists with a rock-solid reputation.

Will the Republicans finally withdraw this nomination? If they push it through, all they’ll accomplish is to diminish the authority of the Supreme Court still further.

He then linked to this article.

Which claims the following:

She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.

Atheists Make Bomb Threat Against Atheist Conference

Okay, I can’t say for sure it was an atheist who made the bomb threat, but it’s probably safe to say its primarily the atheist population who care about, let alone even know of, something called “Mythcon.”   That is, the big controversy around Mythcon is a controversy within the atheist community.

Just more evidence that that world would be a much, much better place without religion.
