Hitchslapped

We lost a great man recently in Christopher Hitchens.  I know I’m a little late with posting about this but I just listened to SGU Episode 336 where the Rogues, George Hrab and Jamy Ian Swiss share their thoughts and memories of Christopher Hitchens.

The first time I heard of Hitchens was when I was running the SGU’s fansite and they interviewed him at TAM5.  I didn’t think too much of it, he was just another interviewee to add to my online list at the time.  It’s not until I downloaded SGU Uncut #2 and listened to the unedited interview that Hitchens caught my attention.  It was awesome.  Since then I think I’ve seen all of the debates he participated in that are available on YouTube.  The man was a genius.  I think the thing that impressed me the most about Hitchens was how well he used his words.  This man was a master at the English language.  He was a sniper with words.  Everything he said I knew that that’s EXACTLY what he meant to say and how he meant to say it.

So yesterday I decided to look up any other Hitchens videos I might have missed and I came across this awesome playlist of (at the time of this posting) 71 videos of Hitchens giving the Hitchslap to various people, religions and ideas.  I just needed to share it with our readers.

Just before I started this post I bought God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything and Missionary Position. I can’t wait to start reading them.
