Woe be to ye who denieth the church of climate change and its environmental doctrine. For he who doth blaspheme against the church with his digital tongue shalt have it digitally cut out. Then ye shall know the righteousness and fury of they who fly in fuel guzzling jumbo jets to speak against such heresies together in foreign lands.
Or so sayeth one professor at Cal State University in Sacramento. According to Truth Revolt, Joseph A. Palermo believes that President-elect Donald Trump's positions on the "science of climate change" should disqualify him from enjoying the "science of the internet."
“I’ve always believed that people who dismiss science in one area shouldn’t be able to benefit from science in others,” he wrote for the Huffington Post on Dec. 27.
Accordingly, Palermo said that President Trump shouldn’t be able to use “the science of global positioning” for drones or “the science of nuclear power” for weapons. Presumably he believes Trump also shouldn't be able to use a cell phone or electric toothbrush, either.
According to Newsbusters, this isn't the first time Palermo has been in the news when it comes to attempting to silence people who disagree with his stances on climate change. In 2009, the professor argued for reforms for the federal government which would essentially silence networks from having on people like Dick Cheney and Karl Rove "because enhanced competition would mean that rivals might be broadcasting more attractive fare."
Of course, merely suspending Trump's Twitter account isn't where some climate alarmists wish to stop when it comes to silencing critics. Lab coated celebrity Bill Nye has stated that "climate deniers" should be sent to jail.
