Kevin Wirth Says “Darwinists” are Terrorists
contact the FBI immediately! Do not approach them.
They are armed with uncomfortable ideas!
The article is titled “Mr. Obama: The Rule of Law Should Apply to All Forms of Terrorism”. He starts by praising Obama for being against torture. Then he reminds us that Obama is actually evil. Kevin quotes some other writer, who says that Obama has a:
…radical pro-abortion, pro-infanticide agenda….
Kevin doesn’t temper this statement at all, so he’s wimping out and letting some other writer carry the heavy lifting on abortion. Kevin learned this technique from watching cop shows. In this case, it is known as the “bad writer, worse writer” technique. Kevin only wants to be known as the guy who doesn’t understand science, not the guy who wants to oppress women.
He then drops abortion completely and forgets he even mentioned it. I’m guessing the only reason that quote is even in there is because old Kevin was working the mine that day collecting quotes, and that one fell into the wrong ore car. He was planning to use it some other time. Or maybe he just can’t help himself. That entire article only has three quotes in it. Without the abortion quote, it would only have two. Then Kevin would be forced to make up for the missing text by actually constructing his own sentences and forming his own thoughts.
I wish he’d write more of his own stuff, though, and stop relying on others. That’s because Kevin’s stuff is so freakin’ hilarious! Here is where he goes next in his article:
There is a more far-reaching and legitimate question that pops into my mind as I consider Obama’s approach: will he consistently defend the rights of Americans who are currently being subjected to different forms of abuse that I’m beginning to think might qualify as terrorism?
I’m intrigued. What could Kevin’s “Ben Stein = Rosa Parks” imagination come up with now that could possibly be equivalent to flying airliners into the World Trade Center?
Especially at risk are the rights of dissidents within our citizen ranks. How are we protecting these ordinary citizens when their freedoms come under attack?
Oh no! There are dissidents within our ranks who are under attack? Even being slaughtered? In my America? How could that be? Obama must do something!
Well, there currently exists under Obama’s watch perhaps one of the most onerous abuses of our freedoms and Civil Rights that one could imagine.
Oh, no! Obama has already let us down!
I’m speaking about Americans, not Islamic terrorists.
Actually, a lot of the people tortured at Gitmo weren’t terrorists, but Kevin isn’t concerned about that. Americans are being tortured on American soil! I think. Actually I guess he’s implying that they’re being almost tortured! That’s worse! They’re Americans, dammit! Not brown people! White Americans are being almost-tortured! Actually, they don’t all have to be white. Kevin would get upset if they were black, too. He’d send his good friend and civil rights warrior Ben Stein over to rescue them.
Many of the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans are currently and have been under attack, but these actions are usually referred to as discrimination. I’m beginning to wonder if these actions shouldn’t be classified as a form of terrorism.
Yeah! They… What? I thought you were talking about torture, not discrimination. Sure, discrimination is serious business. If it were really occurring, we’d all be quite upset. Things would have to get fixed, and quickly. But having to drink out of the “colored” drinking fountain isn’t terrorism. (And I have a feeling that in Kevin’s case, he’s worried that the drinking fountain he has to use is labeled “creationist”.)
Who is under attack?
Gee. I don’t know. Do they possibly have difficulty comprehending scientific concepts?
The dissidents in our culture.
No, Kevin. That “D” on your biology report card doesn’t stand for “Dissident”.
These are the folks who challenge the conventional views held within our scientific, philosophical, and academic communities.
Because gravity is so controversial!
But they are often made to pay a huge price for speaking their mind.
Actually, they usually end up with a cushy job at the Discovery Institute, or they get deluded millionaires to give them millions of dollars to make bad documentaries.
Many freedoms have been stripped from dissident educators, students, and scientists who disagree with conventional wisdom on issues considered settled by many experts.
Such as the “freedom” to teach Biblical creation stories to public school students. And the “freedom” to be completely clueless about your field of study and expect the department to not fire your incompetent ass.
They are often dismissed as kooks, pseudoscientists, and charlatans who we should either ignore or consider as serious threats to the survival of our society — depending on who you talk to.
That’s the first accurate statement Kevin has made in this entire article! Maybe he’s capable of learning after all!
The problem is, these dissidents often turn out to have their finger on some aspect of reality that conventional wisdom overlooks.
By “often”, Kevin means one time out of a million. Most people who “disagree” with real science are astrologers, dowsers, homeopaths, psychics, faith healers, anti-vaxers, Oprah, etc. Kevin sure is in rigorous intellectual company!
Many dissidents not only lose their jobs, but their careers are often ruined.
I didn’t know “teaching the Bible in public schools” was a viable career option.
The impact of such actions often results in the failure of marriages and families, and financial losses that are at times unrecoverable, and plunge victims into many years or even a lifetime of debt.
Such are the consequences of sucking at your job. Might I suggest a career more in line with your intellectual capacity? I hear Chick-fil-A is hiring. And they close on Sundays, so you can go to church!
Darwin skeptics are but one group of dissidents who have suffered incredible losses for their views.
We’ve been hearing this tired old trope from you for years, Kevin.
Look. Here’s how you know if you have good chocolate. Throw it against the wall. If it sticks, it’s good chocolate!
Your “Darwin skeptic” chant is hitting a Teflon wall. You’re trying to sell that really crappy stuff they make Easter bunnies out of. Give it up. Go find something marketable. No one wants your shit.
The clear practice of religious and viewpoint discrimination against them, which has played out in the background of our culture for decades, has only recently surfaced as a barely noticeable issue in 2008 with the release of the movie “Expelled” and the publication of the book “Slaughter of the Dissidents.
Plug it Kevin! Plug your book like it’s a stool pigeon in a bad gangster movie!
This matter is significant for several reasons, but this one stands out: if one class of people can be denied their constitutionally protected freedoms, then so can any other group.
So, Kevin, where are you on the whole gay marriage issue? That’s a real constitutional question, not your made-up “Darwin doubter” fantasy. Those are real rights being suppressed. Your “dissidents” and “skeptics” have never demonstrated that their rights are being consistently suppressed.
This issue is also important because in the end, the result of this brand of discrimination breeds a form of intellectual terrorism that has stripped the academic and scientific communities of dissenters who might otherwise offer an important and much-needed perspective to their students and colleagues.
There’s his terrorism again. Even if what he claims were really occurring, it isn’t terrorism. He has a few more paragraphs where he continues to beat this horse, but he gets nowhere with it. It died back in paragraph one.
