It's a joke.

"What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence."

However, where is the evidence for this statement? What reasons do we have to believe this? It seems self-defeating.

It also seems as if it pushes us into the regress problem in epistemology.

So we can safely assume that some propositions can be asserted without evidence. This isn't self-defeating at all, thus the contradiction of Hitchen's razor is more favorable.

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."
