One of the most absurd claims is that there is a scientific “consensus” on something as infinitely complex as the causes of climate change. There may be an actual consensus on the existence of the greenhouse gas effect, something that can be experimentally demonstrated, but a consensus that CO2, a trace gas at 0.04% of the atmosphere, is the sole cause of potentially catastrophic warming is a joke. The mathematics and data simply don’t exist to make such a claim. We can’t model the S&P 500 or the weather 1 week out, the claim that we can model the climate 100 years in the future is science fiction on steroids.
How then do you reach a scientific “consensus?” Easy, one needs to look no further than Silicon Valley to see the MO that is the standard practice of the “progressive” left. Just recently Google fired a white male engineer James Damore for challenging Google’s “diversity” program. What was his crime? He dared to state that there are material differences between the sexes.
Damore said others who speak out against a popular opinion face risk losing their jobs. “In my document, I committed heresy against the Google creed by stating that not all disparities between men and women that we see in the world are the result of discriminatory treatment,” he said.
Damore, who worked as a software engineer at Google’s Mountain View campus since 2013, was fired Monday after his 10-page memo denouncing the company’s diversity efforts went viral. The memo said that the gender gap at tech companies like Google are largely due to biological differences between men and women, not discrimination. On average, men are better suited to engineering and leadership roles, he claims, and women to people-oriented roles.
Lawrence Sumners lost his job as Harvard’s President for a similar violation.
His well-known desire to change Harvard’s culture, which he saw as complacent, was accompanied by slights to some faculty members and missteps like his statement last year that women might lack an intrinsic aptitude for math and science.
Bell Curve author Charles Murry has been violently attacked by the “tolerant left” for simply pointing out the results of existing research, much of it done at Harvard.
The normally peaceful campus of Middlebury College, with its mountain backdrop and elite reputation, was shaken last week after violent student protesters shut down a talk by controversial conservative social scientist Charles Murray and injured a Middlebury professor who was with him.
While those Orwellian examples are frightening enough, Apple just outdid them all. They fired their “Diversity” chief, a black woman. What was her crime? She believes that skin color, sexual orientation, and gender aren’t the only factors that can contribute to diversity. She dared to say that white men can contribute to diversity. Gasp!!!
“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation, … Diversity is the human experience … I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT”
Apple has fallen so far down the rabbit hole that they hired Obama’s EPA head, Lisa Jackson as their vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives. She can go overseas and attack our sitting President and keep her job.
Apple’s decision to allow a member of its executive leadership team to criticize the president with a foreign outlet is a continuation of a troubling pattern for the U.S. tech giant. CEO Tim Cook regularly spars with Trump in the news and has appeased authoritarian regimes like the one in China in order to broaden Apple’s markets.
Some people read Orwell and Rand as warnings, others read them as instruction manuals. It is clear that the Progressive Left uses Orwell and Rand as instruction manuals. It is easy to reach a “consensus” when you simply eliminate, fire, re-educate, threaten, intimidate and re-assign anyone that disagrees with the consensus. That, however, is the Fascist Method, not the Scientific Method.
“Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the Sept. 1 headline in the Outline. Mark Hertsgaard argued in a Sept. 7 article in the Nation, titled “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”
The suggestion that those who run afoul of the climate change consensus, in particular government officials, should face charges comes with temperatures flaring over the link between hurricanes and greenhouse gas emissions.
Personally, I’d be interested in hearing these progressives explain the evolutionary theory that would have males and females evolving the same traits. Mother Nature isn’t some PC Social Justice Warrior, she is a survival of the fittest killing machine. If the liberals are correct that males and females differ only by their genitalia, then homo sapiens are unique among all species. Every other species have the male and female possessing wildly different traits, each filling a specific evolutionary need. It makes no sense to have males and females evolve to become “equal,” they are designed by evolution to fill different needs for the perpetuation of the species. Only in the liberal social science departments of our universities are males and females identical.
If the progressives are correct, then the only impact of the 23rd Chromosome and the resulting differential in testosterone, estrogen, and genitalia impact only physical characteristics and have absolutely no impact on the brain. Given the wildly different roles males and females play in the evolutionary process, it is absurd to think that the brain isn’t largely impacted by the 23rd chromosome. Natural selection for good mothers is infinitely different from the natural selection of hunters and gatherers. Not only are the progressives rewriting the physics of climate change, they are rewriting the theory of evolution, and both are equally wrong.
Mother Nature didn’t design women to be programmers, she designed women to be effective multitasking mothers that are highly discriminatory in their selection of a mate. Mother Nature designed men to be strong, silent and violent hunters and builders with a laser focus that are largely indiscriminate regarding their mates. In other words, men are ideal programmers and engineers. Just look at a herd of buffalo. One strong male will have tens if not hundreds of potential mates surrounding him. Males often battle to the death for the right to mate. Nowhere in the natural world do you find females battling to the death for the right to mate. With regards to homo sapiens, the males built the homes that protected the females. Nowhere do you find the females building the homes for the males, once again resulting in males being the ideal programmers and builders. The progressives are simply arguing with 200,000 years of non-PC evolution.
Where are the brain MRIs and long-term cross-sectional studies that prove men and women are identical when it comes to mathematical, spatial, linguistic and emotional intelligence? Don’t waste your time, they don’t, nor will they ever exist. Mother Nature simply isn’t a progressive, and she doesn’t give a damn about the social issue Du Jour of the SJWs.
Progressives aren’t any better regarding biology and the cycle of life either. They claim life doesn’t begin at conception, but can’t identify any period in the cycle of life where there is a missing link. Life is and always has been a continuum. Progressive politics doesn’t change the scientific reality.
Post Publishing Edit: Google won’t Disavow Political Violence, but will Fire you for challenging their Diversity Program.
Google has refused to disavow a series of violent statements made by its former employee, Tim Chevalier, while he was still at the company. The search giant also will not say if Chevalier’s comments constituted a breach of their employee code of conduct.
Google Brownshirts is a fitting description.
