I was formerly a "New Atheist" when the movement was still in its infancy...whenever that was 10 years ago or so. I wasn't around when they really started getting reactionary as they are now - but those who are aware of Bill Maher, Sam Harris, and the Youtube Atheists will know what I mean. Their willingness to oppress, lie about, and create racist hostility towards innocent people (particularly Muslims), weaponizing "logic" and "rationality", just made them a cog of the racist and imperialist propaganda machine.
