Man, them liberals sure do love them some Neil Tyson when he’s trying to make fun of Christianity or when he’s mocking God. But boy they sure do turn on him when he posts stats on gun crimes.
In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) August 4, 2019
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.
Oh boy. They definitely didn’t like this. You see, the campaign to take away our gun rights depends on emotion and numbers and stats are their natural predator.
They swear they have a point, you just have to believe them on this one:
Except, people really are working to decrease gun crime, just not in the way that these people want it to happen.
There’s always Shannon Watts, who apparently doesn’t know what a “hot take” means:
Cold take, Neil. 200+ Americans died from gun violence in the past 48 hours. And you list causes of death that are researched, regulated and also happen in other high income countries. Our gun violence crisis is preventable and senseless and driven by a special interest. https://t.co/jua4wH7gOX— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) August 4, 2019
Neil DeGrasse Tyson reads at a PhD level, and still can't read the fucking room.— Rewhan (@_Rewhan) August 4, 2019
Reading the room means telling liberals what they want to hear, not the truth.
Are you seriously framing domestic terrorism as ‘spectacle’? Have you lost your GD mind? Mass shootings & preventable diseases should never, in any scenario, be compared to one another b/c they have absolutely nothing in common.— Madie, The Anarcho-Apprentice 🏴🌹 (@MadieRaybin) August 4, 2019
Tell me you’re smarter than this, Neil. pic.twitter.com/LqP39Weh3s
Neil, stick to Astrophysics please. As a social scientist I'm begging you at this point bruh https://t.co/LD9F6j2T1A— Du Boisian Biologist (@Hood_Biologist) August 4, 2019
And yet they love it when sports figures and celebrities spout off liberal crap.
Plane is going down.— Mike Camerlengo (@MCamerlengo) August 4, 2019
Neil deGrasse Tyson taps you on the shoulder: “way more people die on the way TO the airpor-”
OK, that one is funny.
Go fuck yourself Neil.— Oceaniz (@Oceaniz96) August 4, 2019
Triviliazing a fucking Shooting like this is something I'd expect from an edgy pseudo political anime account, not a scientist or whatever you fancy yourself these days. https://t.co/QG0plNe0BJ
HOLY SHIT, ON WAX NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON HAS ASPERGER'S. HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND EMOTIONAL RESPONSES TO MURDER AS OPPOSED TO ACCIDENTS. HOLY SHIT https://t.co/4z9MVoDckR— Hotep Mr Rodgers (@TjizzleII) August 4, 2019
Even black twitter got in on the action:
