Shocking, there hasn’t been a good ‘Mike Rowe Smacks Around a Leftist Troll” post for a while. It’s one of our favorite genres (see Mike Rowe Fires Both Barrels at NFL for Disrespecting Fans and Mike Rowe Delivers Brilliant Response to People Trapped in Identity Politics). But the trolls had been leaving Rowe alone, so he left them alone. Silence is golden. Someone tell Amy Schumer.
Then a dingbat tagged him on Facebook. Also, the Science Channel. Apparently, Mike Rowe shouldn’t be allowed to host “How the Universe Works.” Here’s its reasoning.
I’m lost on how the producers and the Science Channel can allow anti-education, science doubting, ultra-right wing conservative Mike Rowe to narrate the show. Cancel this fools contract and get any of your scientists so often on the show to narrate it.”
Pro-tip, if you’re going to call someone a fool, spell “fool” correctly. Should be “Cancel this fool’s contract.” Where the apostrophe “s” shows ownership. Mike Rowe isn’t, all by himself, multiple fools. Dummy.
As we say in the business, Rowe dismantled her in the best way possible.
You’ve called me an “ultra-right wing conservative,” who is both “anti-education,” and “science-doubting.” Interestingly, you offer no proof. Odd, for a lover of science. So I challenge you to do so now. Please provide some evidence that I am in fact the person you’ve described. And by evidence, I don’t mean a sentence taken out of context, or a meme that appeared in your newsfeed, or a photo of me standing next to a politician or a talk-show host you don’t like. I mean actual proof of what you claim I am.
Questioning the existence of dark-matter does not make me a “dark-matter denier.” And questioning the wisdom of a universal $15 minimum wage doesn’t make me an “ultra-right wing conservative.”
Here’s the knockout blow. Since this woman tagged him on Facebook, Rowe got to check out her Facebook page to see what her deal was. No word on if he had to don a hazmat suit.
If you truly fear “no one & nothing,” it’s not because you’re brave; it’s because you’re unwilling to expose yourself to ideas that frighten you. And while I can see that you like to fight for what you think is “right” (in this case, getting people fired that you disagree with,) one could easily say the same thing about any other misguided, garden-variety bully.
Mike Rowe is bae. It’s hardly the first time a leftist doucheburger wanted someone fired for thinking for themselves. Typically these encounters end with either the target getting fired or a boilerplate apology written by some PR firm. Related: Mike Rowe Doubles Down on YouTube Censoring Conservative Videos.
Rowe not only doesn’t apologize, he picks apart the criticism bit by bit. Not in an angry talk radio way. In a biology lab way, dissecting a frog one innard at a time. A frog which he stole from a troll’s lunch box. Tasty.
Leaders on the right should be stealing their tricks from him.
