Neil de Grasse Tyson — #HimToo!

Har-de-Frickin-HAR!

Jackwagon.  I’ll never get over this turd.  The one thing I recall of him was an interview where he and Ann Druyan sat side by side slagging Fox viewers as too stupid to even be bothered with.  (Apparently, he re-booted Sagan’s magnificent COSMOS on Fox some time later.  First I heard of that…)

Here’s Tyson and Druyan slagging capitalism and private industry to some dreadful English-as-a-zeroth-language lesbian reporter in Singapore:

I’ll find the clip I’m looking for.  Meanwhile — ding dong, I’m glad he’s red.

  1. Years ago, I was naive enough to think that the hard sciences would be spared from the sort of politicization that infested the rest of academia. While the subject matter is intrinsically more resistant to wishful thinking and fantasy, the public perception of it had to be skewed in order for these popularizers to push for their sociopolitical causes. The result is the Scientism we see today, masquerading as a dispassionate search for truth.

    Thomas Sowell’s theories about the role of public intellectuals have been a most reliable indicator over the past decade. The real tragedy is that these figures have damaged the institution they claim to represent.

  2. The charges may be bogus but it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The English language is chock full of expressions for this moment:

    What goes around, comes around.

    What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    My karma ran over your dogma.

    Enjoy die Schadenfreude.

  3. And has the gall to say, “what happens when it’s just one person’s word against another’s, and the stories don’t agree? That’s when people tend to pass judgment on who is more credible than whom.”

    — in other words, “I’m a famous Science Guy and you’re the office help. Who do you think they’re gonna believe, Bimbo?”

    He also had to gall to complain about lack of due process. Where was he for the last coupla years? Probably cheering on #metoo and agreeing we must always believe the accusers.
