There have been numerous articles over the past several days criticizing Bill Nye as anti-science. But Bill Nye isn’t anti-science, he’s something much worse. Bill Nye is a fascist.
Now, I’m not saying there’s no irony in his pro-science facade. He, himself, holds numerous political positions that are contrary to truly known scientific facts. Scientific facts that have far more evidence than the theories thought up by the “You’re Anti-Science If You don’t Believe in a Coming Man Made Climate Change Apocalypse” crowd.
First, his ideas on abortion lack all basis in scientific evidence. ‘The Science Guy’ even once did a video on abortion that compared the deliberate killing of fetus in a mothers womb to a miscarriage. He argued that wanting to outlaw abortion is like wanting to put women in jail for having miscarriages.
“If you [pro-life advocates] say, ‘When an egg is fertilized it has the same rights as an individual!’ who are you going to sue? Every woman who’s had a fertilized egg pass through her? Every guy whose sperm has fertilized an egg and it didn’t become a human? Did all these people fail you? It’s just a reflection of a deep lack of scientific understanding. You literally don’t know what your talking about.”
Yes, the guy who doesn’t understand a fertilized egg is a human, one of the most obvious and clearly understood scientific facts, mocked others as having unscientific beliefs. That clearly does not bode well for his “Science Guy” persona.
Then , there’s Nye’s latest music video production, ‘My Sex Junk.’ This was a product of episode nine of his new Netflix series, “Bill Nye Saves the World.”
In this video, and the entirety of episode nine, he holds fast to the very unscientific notion that not only gender, but also sex is on a spectrum. He thinks sex & gender are in no way dependent on your reproductive parts, chromosomes, and, or, DNA. Sex is just a label to be used at random depending on what we feel best represents us that day.
His evidence for such ‘science’ is a fish that can change sex. Again, that’s a fish. Not a human, nor even a mammal…a fish! An animal that is not only a different species, but in an entirely different classification. This is like studying human psychology by recording the growth of tree (ie. not very scientific).
And, of course, even Nye’s views on climate change aren’t free from scientific scrutiny. In advocating for his golden issue he denies or ignores all of the following: the 18 year pause in global warming, which is probably the reason they switch to the term “Climate Change”; a lack of catastrophic flooding that was supposed to have already fallen upon us; the inaccurate predictions of an increase in catastrophic weather events (tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.), of which we’ve seen fewer than ever; and numerous other inconsistencies in the theory of catastrophic man-made climate change.
All of his above claims are both idiotic and not based in well demonstrated science. He’s definitely a hypocrite for advocating against well known scientific facts, but these aren’t ideas he came up with because he hates science.
The truth is Bill Nye isn’t pro-science, nor anti-science. Bill Nye is something much worse. He is a fascist. Nye has gotten in with the cool crowd of politically correct bullies who insist everyone believe exactly as themselves or shut up. And if you don’t shut up, the state should force you to shut up.
During the ‘March for Science,” for instance, Bill Nye was interviewed ABC. He siad,
“To the conservatives who want to cut regulations…let me just say: careful what you wish for. The state of California is now the 6th largest economy in the world…. So what if California won’t let you import you car, or buy your grain, or your produce, or your software, because you are being environmentally irresponsible? What happens then, everybody?”
Now at first, one might take that as him saying that California may not allow cars to be driven in their state because of emissions. That doesn’t sound so bad. After all, California is a sovereign state that has the right to make it’s own decisions.
But as he moves on to other products (grain, produce, software) you begin to notice he’s not talking about regulations within a state. He’s talking about starting trade wars between states within the US. This is threat to those that disagree with him. It’s him saying, get in line or else we will ruin your state! It’s not free exchange of ideas to improve the quality of scientific research and studies. It’s fascism.
He’s anti-free exchange of ideas in the media, as well. During a panel discussion on CNN he told an andchor, “You’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic on.”
This was on a panel of five people, four of whom were lefties that all agree the world will soon end if we don’t implement leftist policies to stop the disastrous effects of climate change. And this is CNN we’re talking about. Everyone knows CNN is very, very friendly to those like Nye, who are in favor of more government intervention to stop global warming. They are already extremely biased, leaning left on every issue. Asking that an already biased media outlet go further left and not even invite on opposing views is the heart of fascism.
But that’s not all.
Probably the most astounding example of fascism by Bill Nye is when he was asked, “What’s your thought on jailing skeptics as war criminals?” – a suggestion Robert F. Kennedy had made in 2014.
His answer? “We’ll see what happens!”
I don’t think I have to explain why the only non-facsistic answer to this question is, “No. Absolutely not.” Any answer but this is an acceptance of government power being used to shut up political opponenets, and an avocation of outright violating our 1st Amendment protections.
These fascist statements are far more dangerous than any stupid opinion that contradicts reality or science. Dumb, idiotic opinions have no value, and nowhere near the influence, when they can be called out. They only have value when those with opposing, and in this case correct, opinions and eveidence are afraid to speak out.
So in lieu of this, let’s stop calling him Bill Nye the Anti-Science Guy or Bill Nye the Poli-Sci Guy, and instead given a more proper name of Bill Nye the Fascist Guy.
