Bill Nye Patiently Waiting for Climate Change Deniers to Die

Let’s play a game.

First, take an overtly left-leaning “science guy,” one who spends his time hobnobbing with progressive politicians and wagging his finger over those who would show healthy (dare I say scientifically healthy) skepticism over anthropomorphic climate change.

Add a dash of hypocrisy (Nye spent Earth Day 2015 flying around in Air Force One with then-President Obama lecturing about climate change. Carbon footprint anyone?).

Stir with a performance that reduced the last shreds of his reputation into tatters.

And then top with word that he believes that climate change skepticism will become a thing of the past as soon as those olds who hang onto their skepticism just go ahead and die already.

The “Science Guy” said that generationally, the majority of climate change deniers are older.

“Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational,” Nye told the Los Angeles Times. Nye said that he is calling them out with “due respect,” acknowledging that he is “now one of them.”

“We’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say,” Nye went on, adding that “age out” is a euphemism for “die.” “But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”

Would it be fair to write something about Nye’s most recent statements with a headline that reads: Bill Nye Wants Climate Change Deniers to Die!

Because I seem to remember images some time ago during one of the many incarnations of the healthcare debate that had then-congressman Paul Ryan pushing granny off a cliff.

Is all fair in love and policy marketing?

Asking for a friend.

(Anyway, I’m not sure Nye is correct that climate change skepticism dies with an older generation. Science, by its very nature, demands skepticism. Not everyone, including younger generations steeped in technology and, therefore, the basics of logic, will be so willing to deny their skepticism, Mr. Science Guy.)

Obama’s Homeland Security Director Complains Trump Is Scaring Off Illegals (VIDEO)

Jeh Johnson was the most relentless of the oxygen thieves that Barack Obama hired in his effort to turn the United States into a Third-World, Balkanized (no offense to the Balkans) sh**hole. Johnson always gave the impression of being something out of an H. P. Lovecraft story. Whatever his failures in keeping the US safe from known wolf terrorists, his biggest failure was presiding over the illegal immigration crisis that set Donald Trump on a glide path to the White House.

On Thursday, Johnson was on CNN’s “New Day” program and he gave us a refreshing dose of honesty (via Daily Caller)

“Through his rhetoric, he scared off a lot of women and children in Central America who’d rather stay in their desperate circumstances or just migrate to Mexico and stop there,” Johnson said. “But these are really desperate women and children, women with babies in their arms, who are trying to flee the poverty and violence in the countries they left.”

Got to be honest with you, I don’t see that as a bad thing. When you consider the human cost of encouraging illegal immigration and then catching a lot of them and sending them home, how is anyone a winner? The illegal who is perpetually at risk of deportation? The legal immigrant that finds employment difficult because employers assume he’s illegal? The American taxpayer? The immigrants who spent their life savings to come here? The women and children diverted into the sexual commodities? Or a bag of pus like Johnson who can feel good about himself.

“When you enforce immigration laws, you have to be able to look yourself in the mirror, look your own family in the eye, recall the women and children who are desperate to say, ‘I did my best to enforce the law consistent with our priorities and consistent with our values,’” Johnson said, adding that he hopes the Trump administration “does not lose sight of that.”

The primary value that sets the United States apart from the rest of the world is that we are allegedly, as John Adams wrote, “a government of laws and not of men.” What Johnson did was stand that on its head and substituted his own judgement for the black-letter law of the nation. And immigration was not the only place he did this. There is no doubt that our domestic counterterrorism efforts were also governed by Johnson’s personal feelings.

Heaven knows how many Americans died so this cretin could get invited to the right parties.
