Why I Left the Right, Exhibit A for Anti-Science
A few days ago, US Senate Republican candidate Ron Johnson demonstrated once again the impenetrable ignorance and atavistic anti-science attitude that has utterly ruined the Republican Party, saying that any global warming can be explained away as “sunspots,” and that CO2 is harmless because “it’s sucked down by trees.” Democrats, Feingold poke fun at Ron Johnson.
Mindless stupidity and hostility toward knowledge — the GOP’s new motto. Ron Johnson is simply expressing the views of the vast majority of this dying party. Yay, ignorance!
And then we have Glenn “Raving Freakazoid Creationist” Beck, blaming the Holocaust on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
