And sure, there might be local pockets of lefty anti-science stuff—I live in liberal Bellingham, WA and people have voted against water fluoridation multiple times, to the detriment of my teeth—but there’s definitely no coordinated, massive campaign on the scale of the right-wing machine.

There is that one Democratic Congressman who got the NIH to waste lots and lots of money ($128 million, FY 2012) on alternative medicine research, though:

NCCAM has grown steadily since its founding in 1992, largely at the insistence of Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), as the Office of Alternative Medicine (OAM) with a budget of $2 million.

Therefore it’s a problem on both sides, guys! Stop being so unfair!//

Yep, this argument on the right is just another in the long list of disgustingly dishonest false equivalencies that republicans, Fox, am radio have been spinning for years, and which the beltway media have now bought into hook line and sinker. Funnily enough, not long after Obama took office.
Yes men & women for the Iraq war and the majority of republican-led issues during the Bush era - now funnily enough, they’ve decided to question Dems and the prez with talking points provided by the republican party.In other words dishonest, and the media have not learned a damn thing since the Iraq tragedy. Which most of them don’t actually see as a tragedy.
But of course, Benghazi is. Four people dead! Worse than Watergate! And don’t you dare mention the dead Iraqis or troops - that would be unpatriotic and a false analogy. Duh duh.
The dishonest fools in the national media and their right wing editors don’t seem to get that they are becoming seen more and more by the public as untrustworthy and dishonest, given their overt lack of independence - and it’s that distrust more than anything that will doom their industry. Sadly, bringing down with the some damn fine treasures of independent journalism in the process, and ultimately damaging democracy even more.
Which makes me wonder: is that their intent?

The Liberal War on Science is definitely not as pervasive as the Conservative War on Science, but we can’t let our guard down either. The Democratic Party of California endorsed the laughable Prop 37.

I’m not saying that both sides are equivalent, but we can’t just rest on our laurels and allow the anti-science populists to take over our party because we’re too busy laughing at the conservatives.
