If there is anything stupider than a "New Atheist" I would like to know what it is. They don't even realize they are part of a cult that is every bit as dogmatic as a religious sect. Anybody who lived through the 1950s and 1960s knows churches were integral to the advancement of civil rights. The mostly young atheists equate Christianity with fundamentalism and TV preachers, but the two are not synonymous. These atheists are bigots.

You kinda blew it, Peter:

A White Nationalist who attends the University of Reno, Nevada says that he is not the “angry racist” that is portrayed in a viral photo of him carrying a torch at a white nationalist protest rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Peter Cvjetanovic, 20, told KTVN that he traveled from Reno to Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

The student said that he wanted to attend the rally to support the white nationalist movement.

“I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture,” Cvjetanovic opined. “It is not perfect; there are flaws to it, of course. However I do believe that the replacement of the statue will be the slow replacement of white heritage within the United States and the people who fought and defended and built their homeland. Robert E Lee is a great example of that. He wasn’t a perfect man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time.”

Trust me, this dumb shit isn't representative of students at UNR.

This article from last year is a load of sexist garbage. "Tokophobia" is just total b.s. Women can and do die in childbirth; so too babies can die before and during delivery. It is hardly irrational to be afraid and wary.

But hey, women who don't do their "duty" in a patriarchy and pop out some dude's kids need to be shamed by claiming they have a "phobia."
