Neil Degrasse Tyson is known for his TV Show “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” and Startalk Podcast. He is well known in the scientific community for helping change Pluto to the dwarf planet classification. But this time Tyson made the news for a different reason, he triggered liberals with facts.
Tyson relies heavily on scientific facts for his shows, but this time his focus was not Space themed, it instead had to do with the recent shooting. He was trying to relay that the MSM makes a big deal about every shooting despite there being other incidents that cause far more deaths in the same amount of time. He was pointing out the bias.
“In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings. On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose… 500 to Medical errors 300 to the Flu 250 to Suicide 200 to Car Accidents 40 to Homicide via Handgun Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.”
Liberals were, of course, triggered as they were planning to milk this tragedy for all it’s worth in their efforts to push gun control. So they attacked Tyson calling him insensitive or mocked his intelligence.
Some of the Tweets attacking Tyson:
“Dismissing and normalizing gun violence and the rise of white supremacy will give space to fascism to rise. Thousands of people die every year from gun violence, we don’t need fascism on top of it.”
“How do you not see the difference between an honest medical error and someone being needlessly killed by a white supremacist? Stick to gatekeeping science.”
“A person can be both intellectually brilliant and practically asinine.
Case in point…”
“I’m just gonna throw this out there – what if all of those were bad and preventing any of them is good?”
“On average, across any 48 hrs, people need to get medical help, Catch the flu, & drive. They don’t need the types of weapons and accessories that are often used in shootings such as these.For a guy who often likes to show the world how smart he is, this is a really stupid tweet.”
It’s clear he struck a nerve with the Liberals and Gun Control Nuts. They are just upset that Tyson is cutting into their Anti-gun narrative. Liberals can’t stand it when you prove them wrong.
