The Fruits of Science Denial: If You Think Today’s GOP is Crazy, .. See What’s Waiting in the Wings

April 1, 2022

The craziness that 40 years of focused attacks on science and fact has given us is not diminishing.
If you don’t get it that the two parties are not the same, you have not been paying attention.

Bill Maher’s kind of lost me a number of times in recent years, but he’s spot on and deadly accurate here.

I talked about this urgent issue in a recent Yale Climate Connections video. In typically (not) helpful fashion the YouTube algorithm tagged is as ‘age restricted” – but if you can get past the extra click, worth a look.

Below, even Steve Bannon, judging by his facial expressions, is finding Michelle Bachman’s most recent ravings a bit much.

    Goes over the philosophical battle currently taking place in the GOP:

    At a Washington Marriott, the nationalist wing of the Republican Party wrestles with what Putin’s war means for their movement.

    Trump wasn’t there, apparently. That could be for several reasons, but I’m guessing it’s because the guy is pure Id, and the philosophical issues are recognized even by his supporters as beyond his pay grade.
