2018 is lending itself to some great entertainment, courtesy of liberal cryfests (see Whiny Feminists Demand BBC ‘Close the Wage Gap.’ It Backfires Magnificently… and WIN: Republican Group Trolls Chuck Schumer With These HILARIOUS Shirts). And it’s not even February yet. The latest outrage surrounds Bill Nye the “Everyone Hates Me Also I’m not Actually a Scientist” guy. His crime? Attending the State of the Union.
In a move that was strange and downright infuriating to many liberals, Bill Nye the Science Guy attended the State of The Union Address as a guest of Republican Congressman, Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma. Many on the left consider Nye, a climate change evangelist and general liberal activist, to have betrayed his values by attending the event with the Trump-backed congressman.
Congressman Bridenstine is seen on the left as a controversial figure for his more conservative opinions on climate change and being Trump’s pick for the new NASA director.
Here’s a little context on Bridenstine. He’s said humans have an impact on climate change. Maybe by using an extra square of toilet paper. Wasting electricity with a hairdryer because letting hair air-dry is for barbarians. Keeping one’s murderous meat chunks cool in a climate killing Fridgidaire. Whatever the details, Bridenstine has conceded a few points to the climate change crowd. Which encouraged Bill Nye to embrace this science-denying apostate.
Many of [Nye’s] rabid fans, and other climate change zealots have seen this as an utter betrayal. A petition has already been signed by 28,000 people to keep Bill Nye away from the President’s Address. Part of it demands, “Bill, please be the Science Guy, not the Bigoted Climate Denial Guy. Cancel your plans to attend Trump’s State of the Union as Rep. Bridenstine’s guest.”
Alas, the winds have changed on ole Bill. Now he must face hateful gusts from infuriated liberals packing a metric frick ton of ass-hurt. He had his chance to recant. Now is the time for punishment.
Observe as his coven of climate change crones take to Twitter to air their nerd rage:
Bill Nye should be ashamed of himself and we should be seriously questioning him and his motivations. This is exactly why we need a much more diverse stable of science spokespeople. https://t.co/LZQ9WWBt89

Nye should step down and make room for a science communicator who a. isn't a middle-aged white dude b. puts the science first and consults with subject matter experts.

Accepting an invitation from a science denier who has worked heavily to undermine the existence of women, minorities and LGBTQIA+ peoples just so you can have a say in NASA’s budget is incredibly dispiriting.

Scientific American even chose this hill to die on. For the record, there was no such outrage when Bill denied biology with his gender spectrum (see New Bill Nye Video Compares Sexuality to Ice Cream). Bill forfeited actual science for political points long ago. But he’s in trouble with the science community now because he sat next to the wrong dude at the wrong event.
Now, none of this is an endorsement of Bill Nye. Let’s not forget the totalitarian crapmonger of which we speak: Fascist Non-Scientist, Bill Nye, Wants to Jail Climate Skeptic REAL Scientists. It’s simply spiritually fulfilling to see the left’s science mascot be eaten alive by the very fascism he’s helped create.
We’re shedding zero tears over Bill’s demise. As for leftists, this is what happens when you glorify opportunistic entertainers as the authority on all things science. They disappoint.
