Hindsight is 20/20, but New Atheists won't look

What should an anti-sjw New Atheist feel when looking to Europe, and noticing A) that irreligion has gone hand in hand with SJW, left-wing, feminist policies, and B) the resistance to said SJWs is heavily represented by people with a knack for praising the Crusades and carrying crosses?

The answer is shame.

Gentlemen, I state the obvious: if you are a right-wing atheist, if you are an anti-sjw atheist, if you are an anti-feminist atheist, then it's clear that the premise and promise of New Atheism has failed. It's time to dispense with it, and shift your focus. Irreligion hasn't launched us forward into progress. It's dragged us backward into tribalism and exploitation that makes theocracy look like libertarianism.

I'm not saying you should give up your atheism, though there's something to be said for that. I'm saying it's time to give up the anti-theism, and admit that that Christianity you were slamming so hard, so long, and so unfairly, held more value than you ever realized. Just as many Christians told you.

It's time to cop to the mistake and switch gears. You'll be a better man for it.
