Scientists March for Earth Day
“We’re not political!” they say.
The lamestream media told you:
Earth Day is a glorious event that celebrates our stewardship of the planet and recognizes all the obligations we have to treat our Earth mother properly. All laws needed to control our effect on the planet should be passed without delay.
Scientists marched this year in the parades in a coordinated effort, and promoted the thought that because they pursue science, they are not political and so, presumably, “you can trust us.”
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Scientists aren’t being very scientific
if they’re holding themselves out to be non-political.
Everything in the public domain is political.
Any group operating on tens of billions of taxpayer dollars,
and constantly in need of more, is as political as it gets.
Read that again.
They’re holding up pictures of DNA and vaccines? Good. How about spy satellites, nukes and labs for weaponized anthrax. It’s proof they’re not only political, they’re underhanded and deceptive, with a hidden agenda and a phony narrative. Your friend the atom. Thalidomide. The coming Ice Age. The absolute trash that passes for science lately is preposterous. “Scientific surveys” are the worst. Some “science” is even done now by voting (Pluto anyone?). It’s the real reason certain “research” funds have been cut off by Congress — to prevent taxpayer funding of political agendas disguised as science. Government “scientists” conducted human sterilization and eugenics experiments on people — and were only stopped when forced to by outrage and new law. All sorts of law has been enacted to prevent so-called “science” from committing atrocities.
Now don’t take this the wrong way. Like anything, there are two sides to the coin, and obviously, the wonders of modern science and technology are fabulous. Hey — we’re on computers, right? Just don’t get snowed by this white-lab-coat holier-than-thou can-do-no-wrong all-the-answers mythology.
Science is just as messed up as police, doctors, the post office and your co-workers, and for the same reason — because they’re people. The fact that their IQs may be high is no reason to place them on a pedestal above every human frailty everyone else has. If anything, this march showed they may be worse off than many of us, believing their own fairy tales. Don’t you know Sheldon Cooper?
Everyone wants clean land, air and water, but not everyone is good with the socialist controls packaged as environmental controls and stuffed in the same wheelbarrow.
