Roger Scruton: my response to the interview that got me sacked
Rule by ‘vigilante’. Roger Scruton responds to the lies published by the New Statesman’s

TFW you’re so woke that someone condemns China for trying to robotize 1 million Muslims in re-education camps, and rather than condemn China too, you condemn the person for using the word “robotize.”
An exemplary response and clarification from Scruton. Eaton is not fit to work in the profession of journalism. I sincerely hope anyone of character refuses to co-operate with him in future. Scum. As to the spineless Brokenshire...
Here is Roger Scruton: An apology for thinking, that he has written, for balance. I disagree with him, and last time I checked, it’s still ok to disagree. Intellectuals love him - I get that; I am not a fan of some of his comments. Again, that is allowed.
Quite a sad affair the hit job is expected I suppose. pluralism is unnatural, and for certain types of progressives small-c conservative views simply have no place in polite society. the champagne-swilling pic summed it up really
: "Not for the first time I am forced to acknowledge what a mistake it is to address young leftists as though they were responsible human beings."
“Not for the first time I am forced to acknowledge what a mistake it is to address young leftists as though they were responsible human beings.”
And here is treating with the contempt he deserves

What is an intelligent and civilized man? Find an example in .

Roger Scruton contextualises his unfortunate recent comments in ⁦ interview, but for me digs a deeper hole with this line: ‘I am neither a friend nor an enemy of Orbán’ ⁦

Roger Scruton: An apology for thinking
Roger Scruton: being homosexual is not normal like having red hair is not normal. If such a view calls into question whether he might discriminate against individuals while unjustly favouring others, then he is rightly dismissed from a public appointment.
Never mind everything else he’s said, Roger Scruton should have his “public intellectual” licence removed for referring to “self-appointed vigilantes”. *sigh*
An appropriately scathing response
"Not for the first time I am forced to acknowledge what a mistake it is to address young leftists as though they were responsible human beings."
: We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes.
