One wonders why Ben Stein has such concern over IDC advocates variously underwhelming tenure review committees with a whole lot of didn't do squat since hired, trying to force people to like them despite playing shady politics with peer review, or telling students that "There really is not a lot of evidence for evolution," while ignoring the general expulsion of scientific views from the current administration. Whether the issue is public health (epidemiology of AIDS, "abstinence only" sex education, etc.), environmental issues (gutting the Endangered Species Act), or climate change (telling scientists what their results are or just to shut up), these things are manifestly happening and are causing actual damage.
Where's the "Expelled" project for exposing the right's war on science?
