Bill Nye’s Fake Science

Bill Nye

In a perhaps even creepier animation called “€œIce Cream Sexuality“€ on Bill Nye Saves the World, the vanilla ice-cream cone stands as a thinly veiled uptight white Christian male who is eventually seduced by differently flavored cones into a multi-racial, multi-gender ice-cream orgy.

In another segment, a male Indian staff writer chides the nearly all-white audience for culturally appropriating Eastern religious symbols, and they gleefully lap up his condescending scolds like the eager power bottoms they are.

Pardon me for noticing, but what the fuck does any of that have to do with science?

Bill Nye”€”whose only scientific credential, if you could even call it that, is a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering”€”isn”€™t the only one who’s guilty of injecting progressive ideology into science. Back in January, the organizers for last week’s March for Science in DC tweeted:

colonization, racism, immigration, native rights, sexism, ableism, queer-, trans-, intersex-phobia, & econ justice are scientific issues

The tweet was accompanied with a cute little black power fist and a rainbow icon.

Again, try not to send me to a gulag for pointing this out, but none of those topics is even remotely related to science. They are all purely ideological and hyper-emotional.

Amusingly, the fact that Nye has stage-dived right into the progressive shark tank is starting to bite him in the posterior. When he was originally announced as one of the star performers in the March for Science, a loud squalling chorus of protest erupted because he’s a white male, and as everyone knows, white males are overrepresented in science not because they”€™re good at it, but because they”€™re racist and sexist. So despite his abject kowtowing to anti-scientific progressive delusions, the swelling rainbow masses who yearn to breathe free still see him as nothing more than Bill Nye the White Guy.
