Skip to comments.Stephen Hawking, Useful Idiot

Stephen Hawking might be amongst the most brilliant minds the world has ever produced, but when it comes to Palestinian propaganda he is a typical academic. In short, he is a useful idiot.

Palestinians have existed for 50 years or so off their refugee status.
Me??? I’m for the Jews od Israel, not American Jews mind you but Jews with brains and balls. Jews who carved a country out of the POS land they were allowed to settle on.
If the Jews lose Israel it will go back to desert.
BDS lied about Stephen Hawking joining anti-Israel academic boycott
Has that been confirmed, or is he just backtracking?
Except for one thing, this is based on and out and out lie by the Palestinian propaganda machine. Hawking didn’t participate in the boycott.
Confirmed. They released the response with pretty harsh language as soon as the BDS propaganda machine released their lies. It is hard to hide he was in the hospital and thus not boycotting.
Has that been confirmed. There doesn’t seem like enough info in that article.
“Stephen Hawking might be amongst the most brilliant minds the world has ever produced...”
People have got to stop with this “brilliant minds” thing. Just because the guy can figure numbers in his head to an astounding degree doesn’t make him a “brilliant mind” on public policy. In fact, Hawking is probably more the “eccentric genius” I wouldn’t trust to direct my back yard cook out. If I want to know the origin of galaxies in the 100,000 years after the Big Bang, I’ll ask him.
O, how the mighty fall!
Englishman Stephen Hawkings, brilliant scientist, overcomer of physical disabilities, sides with the “Palestinians”.
How can, a man who has ‘crunched infinitesimal numbers’, ‘declared himself an Agnostic’, come to a point in time, to believe in a fantasy tribe of humans?
I believe he would be much better off formulating a belief in what has become to be, the Shinnecock Indians, on Long Island, N.Y., or the Mashpee Indians, on Cape Cod!!
Politically hes always been an idiot:
A longstanding Labour Party supporter, Hawking has also increasingly made his views known on a variety of political subjects. He recorded a tribute for the 2000 Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore, called the 2003 invasion of Iraq a “war crime”, maintained his longstanding campaigning for nuclear disarmament, and has supported stem cell research, universal health care, and action to prevent climate change.
Didn’t he trade pornography with Bill Clinton?
He's been successful in a very specialized area, but he's not one of the most brilliant minds in the world. He's more like the older Carl Sagan, than an Einstein.
Unconfirmed confirmed. The university double checked with Hawking’s office and he IS boycotting. The story is correct.
Do you have a link? Hawking’s office this morning said he wasn’t boycotting, he was just in the hospital which is why he didn’t attend.
Many libtards suffer from the mentality of compartmentalization, where they are smart in their chosen profession but are worthless when it comes to current events.
At this time, it doesn’t seem clear if Hawking was boycotting and retracted, never was boycotting, or still is.
Later in the day, the university corrected itself. We have now received confirmation from Professor Hawkings office that a letter was sent on Friday to the Israeli Presidents office regarding his decision not to attend the Presidential Conference, based on advice from Palestinian academics that he should respect the boycott, a Cambridge spokesperson said.
The Washington Post has a similar story saying the retraction was wrong.
What an a-hole. (Him, not you.)
