The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. Saturday’s March for Science was not about science. It was a March for Moonbattery:
In reality, of course, these were marches against President Trump or, stated differently, in favor of the Democratic Party. …
To a remarkable degree, liberal media pretended, at least, to take seriously the “marches for science.” (As though the marchers’ political opponents were against science, whatever that might mean.)
Maybe an example of being against science would be supporting the March for Science, which hurt science by undermining our trust in it:
“When they behave like partisan hacks in the name of science, they politicize science and undermine trust in science,” Marlo Lewis, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), declared at a Heritage Foundation event on Wednesday. “When you use your expertise as a license to regulate others and tax others … ordinary people are going to get very skeptical, not only about your expertise but about your motives.”
If science becomes conflated with the whacky, antihuman ideology of radical environmentalists, its public esteem will suffer.
A central objective of the marches was to stifle scientific debate regarding human influence on the ever-changing climate. Needless to say, suppressing dissenting views for political reasons does not advance science.
Here’s how much the “March for Science” was actually about science:
The liberal media has been exploiting this asinine spectacle to hype the insufferable Bill Nye into a prog superhero, so as to help him annex science to the world of politics on behalf of leftism:
No real science believes that science is political. Did Newton, Einstein, et al. take polls to determine the validity of their theories?
But Nye is not a scientist. He is an entertainer and a moonbat, and other moonbats love him for it. Countermoonbats who resent his role in subjecting children to political indoctrination under the guise of “science,” not so much.
Another outlandish lie from WaPo.
