    The gruesome history of left-wing scientific fakery.

    ...

    Indeed, leftism was born in scientism. Karl Marx believed that his ideas about the historical development, economics, and human nature comprised “scientific socialism,” as true as the laws of natural science. As Friedrich Engels said at Marx’s funeral, “Just as Darwin had discovered the law of development of organic nature, so did Marx discover the laws of human history.” Of course Marxism is no such thing. It is a reductive view of human nature and action, based on selective evidence, unexamined assumptions, and jargon modeled on real science.

    As we now know, Marxism is in fact a political religion based on faith more than reason. It identifies the good (the proletariat and the intellectual left) and the evil (capitalists and petty bourgeois); promises an earthly paradise (a society of equality and justice without private property); and provides a totalizing narrative that explains everything (historical progress driven by the struggle for control of the means of production). And despite its bloody failure, a Marxism dressed up as “democratic socialism” still attracts leftists like Bernie Sanders who fancy themselves thinkers of cool reason and empirical evidence.

    Or take eugenics, an expression of progressivist ideology that dominated American social policy from around 1900 until the Second World War. The most prestigious universities and professors in the country preached eugenics and the “scientific racism” on which it was based. Its authority came from Darwinism and its theory that natural selection favored the fit, including humans. As Darwin said in The Descent of Man, “At some future period . . . the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world.” Calling on Darwinian ideas, Margaret Sanger created Planned Parenthood in part to keep the “less fit” races from overbreeding and hence overwhelming the “more fit” Anglo-Saxon and Nordic races. For the same reason, state governments passed forced sterilization laws upheld by the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision Buck v. Bell. Of course it was all scientism, fake science based on biased observation, the confusion of culture with nature, and quantitative silliness like measuring skulls.

    ...

    To paraphrase British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, science is to scientism what a gentleman is to a gent. As the gruesome history of communism, eugenics, and other pseudo-scientific ideologies teach, we should never confuse a pretender with the real thing.

    Marxism was just a philosophy written by a poor man.......The eugenics in the USA was professed by those of the GOP and Democrats....it has nothing to do with a left or right paradigm...
    Darwin never advocated eugenics, social Darwinism was created by racist/elitist that read Darwin and convoluted the ideas of Darwin to abuse humans because of a physical or mental disparity of so called healthy normal in their eyes....Before Darwin, humans in some societies did kill unhealthy humans....and have for thousands of years..
    Hitler used eugenics, yet, he was no left winger you can try to point a finger at..He was also using the philosophy of Nietzsche..

    True science is objective.
    Politics is the opposite.

    Hitler was a devout Christian yet you will never see this fact getting mentioned. This I find very strange.

    BILL NYE: GLOBAL WARMING DENIERS MUST DIE
    July 20, 2017

    Daniel Greenfield
    [​IMG]

    Warmunists do rather obsess over killing everyone who disagrees with them. Take these ads from the UK (warning: graphic murderously progressive content.)



    Kids show host and failed standup comedian Bill Nye is what liberal millenials think of when they think of science. And what they think of is a failed comedian who wanted to be in NASA, but was too lazy to get a PhD.

    ...

    What Bill Nye, like most leftist fans of the "Wait for the old conservatives to die" theory misses is that younger people become conservative as they grow older. And unless he would like a world in which everyone has to die before they turn 40, that means that the supply of older conservatives will not be diminishing.

    But Bill Nye is ignorant and like most lefties only knows one thing, that his ideological enemies must die.

    The point of all your inane ranting about carbon dioxide levels and “global warming”, what is the point of that, other than to try to get Mankind to give up modern technology, and go back to the dark ages?

    In the here and now, it's conservatives who push eugenics.

    A jail in Tennessee is offering reduced sentences for voluntary vasectomies

    See? Conservatives are pushing to have poor people sterilized. That's textbook eugenics.

    Every liberal says that's totally wrong.

    I await the condemnation of it from the conservatives here. But it won't come, being that modern conservatives adore the idea of eugenics. In their minds, everyone who isn't just like themselves should be sterilized or otherwise removed from society.

    MaMoo, You're dumber than a rock, do you know the difference between voluntary and involuntary. But now you gave me reason to trash the left and your hero margaret sanger, here are a few quotes from libtart hero:

    On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
    "...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

    On sterilization & racial purification:
    Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

    On the right of married couples to bear children:
    Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932

    On the purpose of birth control:
    The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

    On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
    "More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

    Oh the horror, I guess the progressive/left are experts on eugenics...

    It always amazed me that blacks keep voting for Democrats, the day they see the light will be the end of the racistcrats...

    MaMoo wake up and come out from under the rocks...
