#Science Quotable: Shepard Smith – anti-vaccinators = SCIENCE DENIERS #AMAZING #IAmTheHerd

HELLO SCIENCE!! A lot of you want to talk about science deniers, that’s what you are people! You non-vaxxers, you’re science deniers. That’s it!

A small minority of parents refuse vaccines for their children citing all kinds of weirdness, including a possible link to autism, which science says DOES NOT EXIST. And according to the CDC, there is absolutely no link to autism. And anti-vaxxers are hurting all the other little children by not letting little Johnny and little Janey get their shots. Get your shots, come’ on now!

– Shepard Smith

Honestly… I think this is my favorite #Science Quotable ever!! Video below.

Fox Host Shep Smith To Anti-Vaxxers: ‘You’re Science Deniers!’

Fox News host confuses weather and climate… probably not the first time #Science #AlGore

Anti-science quotable? Dunno, but this was too ridiculous to not post. Weather, such as a blizzard is not the same as climate change, or global warming… read a book. Seems like most of Todd Starnes twitter feed is ridiculous comments designed as inflammatory self promotion. Sad.

Turns out having a Pulitzer Prize doesn’t make you an expert on infectious diseases, or even getting real sources #ebola

Rachel Maddow shared with us last night the unfortunate and harmful idiocy of Pulitzer Prize winner George Will on Fox News Sunday. Will claimed that doctors have told him that ebola can be transmitted in the air… and even made up the doctors that told him this… and claimed they were from Minnesota.

The problem is, the original assumption was that with great certitude, if not certainty, was that you need to have direct contact, meaning with bodily fluids with someone, because it’s not airborne. There are now doctors who are saying, we’re not so sure that it can’t be in some instances transmitted by airborne. […]
In fact, there are doctors who are saying that in a sneeze or some cough, some of the airborne particles can be infectious?
The Minnesotans quickly denounced the statements by Will, and made sure to emphasize that he (and other whacko conservatives) have misinterpreted their report that recommended, “health-care workers treating Ebola patients should wear respirators.” This nonsense would be embarrassingly funny, if not for the damage it will potentially do.
What we’re left with is George Will being given a national platform to provide wrong information to a frightened public. He speaks with the certainty of a man who has convinced himself of his own misguided righteousness, but Americans who turn to Will for accurate commentary are nevertheless left worse off than they were before.

Gavin McInnes (who?) loses it on Fox News over Neil deGrasse Tyson #WTF


gavin mcinnes

Sarah Gray for Salon.com reports a story I can only describe as Gavin McInnes imploding on Fox news while attempting to make fun of Neil deGrasse Tyson. The bizarre rant leaves me with almost no words.

McInnes – “astrophysicist — yeah right,” about Tyson, who has degrees from Harvard, the University of Texas and Columbia and currently runs the Hayden Planetarium.”

I am not one to wave degrees or education around, but McInnes (co-founder of Vice magazine), with an English degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, is probably not someone who can judge who is, or is not an astrophysicist. Apparently this isn’t the first rant he has had, “McInnes… has a sordid history of racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments.” 

McInnes then destroys himself in a bizarre and disgusting rant, “I hate this guy (Tyson), I remember hearing Chris Hardwick on a podcast talk about Neil deGrasse Tyson and he was just salivating. White liberal nerds love this guy so much, he could defecate on them like Martin Bashir’s fantasies and they would dance in the streets.

Wow… just wow. Maybe this is just a way to get some publicity? self-promoting clown?

Here is a link to the video.
