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:
Such reforms would make it more difficult for networks to shove people like [Dick] Cheney, [Karl] Rove, and [Ari] Fleischer down our throats because enhanced competition would mean that rivals might be broadcasting more attractive fare.
Another day, another totalitarian academic condemning dissent from leftist orthodoxy. Sorry Professor, but come January 20th there will be a new sheriff in town, and your anti-free speech days are numbered.
