Is there anyone in academia who has not completely lost their mind over Trump?

CA State Professor: Trump’s Climate Views Disqualify Him From Using Twitter
A history professor at Cal State University, Sacramento, argued President-Elect Donald Trump should not be able to use Twitter because “people who dismiss science in one area shouldn’t be able to benefit from science in others.”
Newsbusters reports that Joseph A. Palermo (pictured above) believes Trump’s views on “the science of climate change” disqualify him from using “the science of the Internet,” and other technical achievements.
“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.
Newbusters also notes that in 2009, Palermo argued for “all sorts of reforms” by the federal government that he said would “open up the nation’s political discourse.” For him, opening up the nation’s political discourse meant silencing former George W. Bush administration officials from participating:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
This one is too easy – if the prof believes in AGW due to the use of fossil fuels, then he should not benefit from the by-products of those fossil fuels. But, forget using wood for heating, look at all of the soot pollution it causes. Not good.
Besides, to get wood, you may have to practice thinning of the forests, but that’s not allowed by some environmental crazies. I could go on about the contradictions that the greenies have set up
Does the professor operate a gas-powered motor vehicle? Does the professor generate electricity in his home with anything other than wind and solar? Does the professor’s home have a large lawn as opposed to being covered with trees that he refuses to chop down? Does the professor use anything that is plastic (made from by-products of petroleum)? Does the professor benefit from the use of anything made with fossil fuel as a power source? Does the professor eat meat? If the answer to one or more of these questions is “yes,” then that should disqualify him from using anything that requires power generated by fossil fuels. See how that works, professor?
For spouting such idiotic statements, Joseph A. Palermo should not be allowed to spread his idiocy in a college, university, or even a kindergarten.
I am a card-carrying member of the American Chemical Society. Let me state just one thing about “science.” There is NO SUCH THING as “settled science.”
We did, after all, once believe that the sun revolved around the earth and that bathing caused disease.
Increasingly we are seeing people demanding increased discussion and argument to talk about various topics. Whether it be global warming, race relations, Israel, or whatever, the intent is always the same – You let me talk, you then either agree with me or I shall hurt you in some way, and don’t you even think about disagreeing with me. This is the new freedom of speech, the new open discourse, the new equal rights for everyone. What’s worse is how so few see the hypocrisy in all of this.
