Watch out for this guy

Bobby Jindal is currently the governor of Louisiana. There’s been quite a bit of talk about him making a run for the presidency in 2012. Aside from being a Republican and thus inherently wrong a vast majority of the time, he is also known to support creationism. He has come out in support of intelligent design. Worse yet, he’s anti-science when it comes to just about everything else that contradicts his distorted view of reality.

Gov. Bobby Jindal attracted national attention and strongly worded advice about how he should deal with the Louisiana Science Education Act.

Jindal ignored those calling for a veto and this week signed the law that will allow local school boards to approve supplemental materials for public school science classes as they discuss evolution, cloning and global warming.

Political observers said Jindal’s signature will please one of his key local constituencies: conservative Protestants in north Louisiana.

Doesn’t it seem strange that the bill focuses on a few issues with which conservatives object? Actually, no. It isn’t strange at all. This is a man that is willing to sacrifice quality science education for his own selfish political ambitions. He signed a bill which undermines education in biology and on the climate, among other issues. He hates science. He loves getting backward-thinking hick votes.

Think of Sarah Palin with a funny name and a penis.

  1. Worse yet, he’s anti-science when it comes to just about everything else that contradicts his distorted view of reality.

    Seriously, do you even research your posts before you make them?

    Bobby Jindal graduated with honors in biology and public policy at Brown University, and he was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. Saying he ‘hates science’ is akin to saying Milton Friedman ‘hates economics’ because you disagree with his views on monetary policy.

  2. I’m aware of Jindal’s background. He still signed a bill based upon the propaganda film “Expelled”, except he’s expanding his anti-science stance beyond biology.

  3. I am always amazed to read the short sighted bigotry of posters like Michael. He feels that anyone with differing opinions than his must be ‘evil’. If you could produce one single stitch of evolutionary evidence I’d be open to hearing it. Don’t just keep repeating what someone else says, put forward the evidence.

    The plain truth is evolution is your religion, not science. That point is proved since you, without any basis in fact, believe with all your heart and mind that you came from a rock 4.5 billion years ago.

    Right…. And you say creationists are out to lunch…. Right…..

  4. Milton,
    there are more than 18,000 scientific papers on evolutionary biology being published every year. Why don’t you just go right out and honestly admit that you don’t care because it’s too hard for you, and you’d rather hold onto a simple worldview that feels comfortable.
