It Serves Maryam Namazie Right to Be Banned from Warwick University #MaryamNamazie

It is difficult to feel sorry for Maryam Namazie, the self-styled and self-proclaimed leader of the Council of ex-Muslims of Britain.

So she has been banned from speaking at Warwick University because her views, as a ex-Muslim and non-believer in God or any religion, might offend devout followers of her former faith. Well, boo-hoo.

If Ms Namazie were a proponent of free speech, civil rights or tolerant, polite debate she might merit some sympathy, but she is not, and she never has been. She is a communist and a politically-correct left-winger who practices censorship, and wants to silence the views of anyone who disagrees with her - or anyone who possibly might have something to teach her. Since she practises this self-righteous politically-correct exclusion of other people's views, she does not deserve a moment's sympathy.

It is frankly rather funny that she now complains about being treated in precisely the way she treats others.


She told The Independent she was “angry” her talk had been blocked. “They’re basically labelling me a racist and an extremist for speaking out against Islam and Islamism,” she said.
What a laugh, when this silly woman has openly labelled others who speak out against Islamic extremism or religious persecution as "racist" and extremist". This idiotic woman has publicly and pointedly sided with the PC censors, and mouthed their clich├ęs about "offensive", "extremist" or "safe spaces". She has taken their line by labelling anyone who criticizes Islam as "racist", "extremist" and "right-wing". She has tried to assume a moral high ground because she subscribes to one form of authoritarian tyranny - communism - rather than another, which prevails in her country of origin. Her attitude is that only those who support communism deserve a "platform".


The very, very stupid Ms Namazie.

Ms Namazie can whinge all she likes but the result is comical, as she is hoist with her own petard. She is now accused of "inciting hatred" which is exactly what she has accused others of doing...simply because they are not communists. She will find that her chums on the left, Jeremy Corbyn and co., give her no support. Her comrades in Political Crapbook will turn a cold shoulder and pretend they don't know her.

Warwick University will not be missing anything much by banning her, nor will Trinity College which has apparently banished her too. She likes to give the world terrific insights such as: "Religion is just stupid shit that somebody made up." Apparently such a level of debate impresses the left-wingers and Guardianistas, because she has got an award for it!!! She has often, in her blog and her public interviews, compared Islam to fascism or Nazism, and at the same time she gets furious if anybody else does that. She is not very intelligent, her writing shows no profound thought and Richard Dawkins need not worry she will be a rival for his place in the secular limelight.


“Unfortunately it is part of a worrying wave of censorship that we’re seeing across British universities under the guise of ‘safe spaces’… it’s utterly disheartening,” said Stephen Evans, the society’s campaigns manager. The concept of “safe spaces” had a “chilling effect on free speech,” he added.
Isaac Leigh, president of Warwick Student Union said: “The initial decision was made for the right of Muslim students not to feel intimidated or discriminated against on their university campus… rather than in the interest of suppressing free speech.”
The group’s president, Benjamin David, said: “The infringement of free-speech is becoming insidiously ubiquitous, and many universities, including Warwick, are circumventing the freedom of speech in pursuit of inoffensive, sanitary narratives.”
You don't say?


The move has also been criticised by the National Secular Society, which said it would be writing to Warwick University “to remind them of their legal duty to promote and protect free speech”.  Funny  - did they intervene when Oxford University banned a controversial debate last year after a similar outcry?

Surprise, surprise! And guess who took the lead in this form of censorship and tyranny? Yes, the militant homosexuals. All that stuff about "safe spaces" is taken straight out of the LGBT handbook. Namazie is a blind follower of LGBT claptrap. She has crawled to their dictates, repeated their jargon about "fomohobia" and now their censorship tactics have silenced her too!!
Isaac Leigh, president of Warwick Student Union said: “The initial decision was made for the right of Muslim students not to feel intimidated or discriminated against on their university campus… rather than in the interest of suppressing free speech.” 
But suppressing free speech is exactly what it does, and this amounts to a form of violence and intimidation. Namazie has reaped what she sowed and the saddest bit is that she is too stupid to learn anything from this experience.

  1. I don't feel sorry for this lady, but no-platforming is no-platforming whoever it happens to. (See "No platform for gay cakes!" on my blog.)

  2. I have reservations about Namazie's extremist politics and her default position of branding her main political opponents as 'far right' and 'bigoted'. However, I'm glad she will be speaking at Warwick after all. Free speech must always prevail, despite the shortcomings of some speakers. It's interesting that only the Lefties tried to ban her from Warwick! All those on the Right, whom Namazie brands as 'bigots', are glad the ban has been lifted. They are supportive of her right to free speech, despite her prejudices against them! She's too stubborn and brainwashed by her political belief system to recognise her true allies!
