Election Day Is Nearing, But There's No End in Sight to Trump's Attacks on Science

Traitor Trump should be hanged by the neck until Science decides if it exists and wants to off him. I have got a Fig Newton riding on Science.

Orangeman’s human-demolition project gets huge, regular assists from the agitprop machine, which apparently slurps up death like my motorbike drinks gasoline. Exhibit A this morning is the execrable work Associated Press did on informational challenges at the CDC. AP’s approach is inexcusably empty-headed nonsense of the tone: “These scientists! First they say one thing, then they say another!” As if everyone cannot clearly see what the hell is going on here: an administration hell-bent on as much permanent destruction as possible to all scientific agencies, national and international. (Science is an anti-fascist national threat, apparently.)

Just watch M$MBS continually play along with the sick fascist game: demolishing knowledge for fun and profit. Or else just shut it off: It’s really much too depressing.

C’mon Derrick,

“The question is: Will the American electorate end up asking for an encore performance of this full-throated rejection of scientific evidence? Or will the ghosts of the hundreds of thousands of people who are dying from this playbook rise up to spirit Trump out of the White House?”

This isn’t a real choice or our only choice. How about thinking for yourself based on available information. Does anyone really think you cannot contract a viral infectious disease by casual contact? Or, that the use of broad spectrum antibiotics without testing while cheaper doesn’t lead to unintended consequences? (can you even remember when that was a thing)

What about that robot doing your next surgery? (At least they can’t vote)

Ps. There are way too many examples of why Trump should retire from public life to address here. Maybe science is barking up the wrong tree on this one.

Most murkin voters have so little interest in science that there has likely never been an election that science vs. hyperbole was a deciding factor.

With Trump’s top SCOTUS nominee’s definition of separation of church and state being theocracy where Christian organized religion is unregulated and immune to prosecution, expect more, not fewer attacks on science from Trump and the rest of the GOP.

Sourced quotes. “Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest”.

Then there are Trump’s unscientific views about race, his prejudice shaking the stability of our nation and the world generally. He will never be convinced he is wrong by an rational argument–you can’t fit a square peg in a round hole.
When someone rejects the idea of objective truth altogether, everything becomes a matter of opinion. Welcome back to the 13the century.
