I’ve always been a great believer in the utility of satire in the war against bad ideas. There is something so uniquely powerful about eviscerating dogmas with a chuckle. This is far mightier than any knife, gun or bomb.
Whilst many satirists and activists in recent years have enjoyed the relatively risk-free act of mocking Donald Trump or sticking it to the ‘Nazis’, there are very few people brave enough to poke the hornets nest of Islamic fanaticism. In reality, the front line in today’s resistance to real and present fascism is comprised of Muslim dissidents, ex-Muslims and non-Muslims willing to vocalise their concerns with fundamentalist Islam.
This week on Taking The Myth, Stephen Knight (@GSpellchecker) and Iram Ramzan of sedaa.org (@Iram_Ramzan) discuss the big topics. They cover: The arrest of Ex-Muslim activist Zara Kaye, The attack on the Capitol in Washington DC, Incitement accusations against Donald Trump and his Social media ban, thoughts on Joe Biden, Maajid Nawaz’s threats of legal action, Amazon upholding Hindu blasphemy dogmas, a UK Policeman charged with a crime for sharing a George Floyd meme, UK Covid Lockdown and more!
