CJ: The Left's War On Science

link
I think such comparative judgments are, when possible, to be avoided...for purely practical reasons. However, I absolutely agree with this: the left is more anti-science than the right. The right denies scientific conclusions...but it doesn't reject the very idea of science. It doesn't harbor and promote crackpot pseudophilosophical ideas that aim to debunk science...not to mention subordinate it to literary criticism, women's studies, and other brainless, politicized scholarly wastelands.
   The right says: we don't believe in anthropogenic global warming. Well, honestly, that's not that bad. No ordinary people understand the science. And anyone who's paying attention knows that sciences and social sciences that impinge in any way on social or political issues tend to cheat to the left.
   The left, OTOH, insists that men can become women by dressing like them--and they insist that this is science. Anyone with half a brain can see that it isn't true. It's not a complicated issue. It's not rocket science. It's not climatology. It doesn't leave any room for rational skepticism. Any ordinary person can see that Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is not a woman. Night is not day. Freedom is not slavery. Ignorance is not strength. And yet the vocal vanguard of the left insists that it's not only true, but that even questioning it is verboten. It's the magic of "social construction"...
   There is simply no doubt about it. The left poses a much, much greater threat to science than the right.

Mmm. Not sure whether it's worse on far left or far right. I see the stuff from the left more, to be sure. But then there's stuff like this:

Winston, by denying the evidence of AGW, they are far worse than what some post-modern thinkers write about on page 35 of the NYT.
