Evidence based reality has a distinct and determined liberal bias

We know what a pathogen is. We know what a virus is. We have known about both those things for well over a hundred years. We had Pasteur and Ivanovsky to do the hard work on this well before any of us were born. And yet here we are in 2020 where many more will die than is necessary in this pandemic, because the populists of the right make evidence-based reality a wedge issue. ‘Science? Science? Who the fuck is the liberal hoax called Science?’

It has never been more apparent that evidence based reality has a distinct and determined liberal bias, as we live through a time in history, where right wing leaders gaslight a virus and see numbers spiral and liberal democracies put science at the heart of their pandemic strategies, and see numbers dwindle. I think I see a pattern... hhhhmmmm.

1. I think it's interesting that if the "science" or the truth does not go the way the right wingers

want, it's a "liberal conspiracy"...... liberal plot.... "deep state action" ..... And then they spin off the many unproven conspiracy theories to justify their "truth"..
yes.... A pattern

3. Reality doesn't have a liberal bias. Liberals have a reality bias.

Science. Reason. Evidence. Experts. Those are what liberals use in making judgments.

Conspiracy theories. Conclusions based on no evidence except what they want to believe. Assumptions. Just plain making stuff up. Those are how wingnuts make judgments.

5. One RW ex- classmate

One RW ex- classmate told me all the scientists that are predicting gloom and doom are only doing so because thats the only way to keep the grant money flowing and keeping their jobs.

This is something I've heard before.

Is it just me or are these people from another planet?

This dude is educated and has worked for Intel for 23 years.


Whhhhaaaat?
