Bill Nye The Nazi Guy

I’ve never been famous or had a desire to be famous. In fact, it has always struck me as a miserable way to live. These things are a matter of taste and not having ever been famous, I may be all wrong about my reaction to it. But, my ego has never responded well to flattery so I’m confident fame would not be fun for me. Having people stopping and pointing at me sounds horrible.

There are others for whom fame, even minor fame, is a narcotic that hooks them like a meth addict. They crave it and when they get a taste of it, they will do anything for more of it. My hunch is this is what drives people into the entertainment fields. It’s not the money or the thrill of being good at something. They want to be famous and they will go through every humiliation in order to get a taste of fame. The casting couch could not exist otherwise.

That’s what drives a guy like Bill Nye to repeatedly make an ass of himself in public. He gained some minor celebrity making kids laugh on TV while doing parlor tricks and now he is obsessed with getting on TV or mentioned on the Interwebs. That usually means saying asinine things that the Cult can use to claim science! proves they are right about everything. It’s why he peddles himself as a scientist when he is nothing of the sort.

Yeah, you’re leading to my next point. Part of the solution to this problem or this set of problems associated with climate change is getting the deniers out of our discourse. You know, we can’t have these people – they’re absolutely toxic. And so part of the message in this book is to get the deniers out of the picture, and along that line – I’ve been saying this a lot the last few weeks as  I listen to the Republican debates – maybe one of these people will go out on his or her own, thinking for him or herself, and say, “You know, I’ve been thinking about this and climate change is a very serious problem. So if I’m president, we’re going to address climate change.”

Anyone familiar with their history will recognize why I call him the Nazi Guy. He is dehumanizing the people who disagree with him and his cult’s beliefs. That lets him dismiss them without consideration. It’s a pretty short trip from where he is now, calling the infidels “toxic”, to a place where he is demanding they be rounded up and shot.

Again, Nye is just an attention whore saying increasingly deranged things in order to get people to notice him. He has figured out that his fake scientist act works on the hard thumping crazies of the Cult of Modern Liberalism so that’s his act. If juggling chainsaws was popular with the public, he would be out there doing that instead of peddling this nonsense.

The whiff of fascism is particularly strong here because climate worship has a lot in common with fascism, particularly Nazism. Hitler was a vegan and a bit obsessed with living what we would consider to be the granola lifestyle. The Germans, after all, did give us the Hippies. Instead of rubbing out the mongrel races threatening the folk, the Climate Nazis want to rub out those who threaten Gaia.

This is not an exaggeration. There was a green wing to National Socialism and it was very influential. The mystique of blood and soil was exactly that, blood and soil. For the Nazis, the folk were inextricably bound up in the land. Romantic feelings toward nature were an essential part of the Nazi movement. Preserving Germany for Germans was one side of the coin. Keeping the natural environment of Germans pristine and unsullied was the other side.

Stories like this from New York make a lot of sense if you think of these people as they think of themselves. The climate change warriors are not just defending the environment; they think they are defending themselves and their kind. It’s blood and soil mixed with Puritanism. Instead of the elect running around looking for blasphemers, they are running around looking for deniers. Instead of bringing sinners to account, they are suing the oil companies.

    Nazi resurgence: Bizarre clog-wearing Hitler cult on rise in rural Germany

    “The group, calling themselves “nationalist settlers”, are ultra-right Hitler worshippers but they have traded skinhead boots for clogs and traditional materials and work as organic farmers, midwives and craftsmen.

    Despite appearing bonkers however their rise is being taken very seriously.

    A human rights watchdog group funded by the German interior ministry produced a study called ‘Nationalist Settlers in Rural Areas’.

    Researchers concluded they believe wholeheartedly in the whole Nazi racist superman claptrap and are worming their way into local positions of power as councillors, volunteer firemen, teachers and festival organisers.

    Anne Schmidt, author of the study for the Amadeu Antonio Foundation said: “This is a very scary movement to observe. These extremely nationalist right wing people are settling specifically in little-populated areas, far away from cities to live and raise their children in a backward ideology.”

    Lyrics:
    I dreamed last night I got on the boat to heaven
    And by some chance I had brought my dice along
    And there I stood
    And I hollered “Someone fade me”
    But the passengers, they knew right from wrong.
    For the people all said sit down, sit down, you’re rockin’ the boat

    People all said sit down
    Sit down you’re rockin’ the boat.

    And the devil will drag you under
    By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat,
    Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down,
    Sit down you’re rockin’ the boat.

  6. Nobel Prize Winning Einstein Deniers & Aryan Physics:

    “Many of Heisenberg’s actions appear difficult to comprehend with the advantage of hindsight…Cassidy puts them in perspective with what Heisenberg had to suffer at the hands of not only the regime, but also the German clique (led by Nobel Laureates Stark & Lenard) who promoted “Aryan Physics”. Specifically, they tried to eliminate all references to Einstein and relativity, and, just for good measure, quantum mechanics as well. Heisenberg’s work was inextricably tied into both concepts, and he was vigorously attacked. Cleared in 1937 by the personnel intervention of Heinrich Himmler (whose mother knew Heisenberg’s), Heisenberg was greatly relieved, and came to have confidence in his judgment about the regime. He was terribly mistaken.”

    Beyond Uncertainty: Heisenberg, Quantum Physics, and the Bomb
    David C. Cassidy
    Bellevue Literary Press, NY, 2009

    David Cassidy has written what surely must be the definitive work on Werner Heisenberg. He clearly likes the subject, as this is his second book on the same person! The previous one: “Uncertainty: The life and science of Werner Heisenberg” appeared in 1991. The present book draws on more material, has a wider scope, and at least on the subject of the German nuclear-weapon program draws conclusions that would appear to this reviewer as beyond contention.

    After a brilliant career, the Nobel Prize in physics at the age of 31 (in 1932), Heisenberg was faced with the onset of the Nazi regime. His love of his country and culture meant that he refused to leave Germany. He never joined the Nazi party, but was faced with living, and working, with the regime. Cassidy finds this the most fascinating aspect of Heisenberg, and it is difficult to disagree.

    Many of Heisenberg’s actions appear difficult to comprehend with the advantage of hindsight; for example, the famous visit to Niels Bohr in 1941 (the subject of Michael Frayn’s wonderful play) is covered in length. We also (since 2002) have the advantage of the Bohr archives to set the record straight on this visit. Cassidy puts them in perspective with what Heisenberg had to suffer at the hands of not only the regime, but also the German clique (led by Nobel Laureates Stark & Lenard) who promoted “Aryan Physics”. Specifically, they tried to eliminate all references to Einstein and relativity, and, just for good measure, quantum mechanics as well. Heisenberg’s work was inextricably tied into both concepts, and he was vigorously attacked. Cleared in 1937 by the personnel intervention of Heinrich Himmler (whose mother knew Heisenberg’s), Heisenberg was greatly relieved, and came to have confidence in his judgment about the regime. He was terribly mistaken.

    With the discovery of fission at the end of 1938, Heisenberg, like most other physicists, became involved. He went on to head the main German effort to develop a nuclear threat. As explained by Cassidy, this was not successful due to competing efforts sponsored by different parts of the regime, as well as a lack of leadership and clear scientific, and technical, drive. Conditions in war-time Germany, especially after the start of Allied bombing, were, of course, much more difficult than in the US, but there were no great moral discussions. The notion (the infamous “lesart”) that the Germans did not develop the bomb because they did not want to is nonsense. Cassidy destroys this myth, as others have before, especially the Farm Hall tapes (edited by Bernstein and published in 1996). The German program was blighted by mistakes, both in physics and technology, and they never even got a reactor operating, which Fermi did for the Allies in Chicago in 1942.

    After the war Heisenberg used his considerable prestige to help rebuild both Germany and physics. In this, he deserves praise. Physics, as expected, had moved on, and he never made any lasting contribution after the war, but his legacy in physics is assured.

    Heisenberg was a brilliant physicist, and a man who knew right from wrong. Of all the senior German physicists who stayed in Germany during this dreadful time, only Max von Laue seems to have steered a path through the rocks – he chose not to collaborate at all with the regime. Heisenberg’s great error was to believe that he could somehow steer between the moral conflicts of the Nazi regime. He was to learn, to his cost, that if one sups with the devil, take a long spoon. Heisenberg’s was not nearly long enough. David Cassidy has captured this conflict in a brilliant book and I do not expect him to produce a third biography.

  7. Manohman, ZM, you DO have a way with words! I was headed off to vacuum and instead of just “glancing” here, as I often do, or seemingly lurking as I open you up and move on to whatever momentary distraction demands my immediate attention, I sat down and read the entire posting. “It’s a pretty short trip…” Yep. BNtNG. Perfect! And ties in nicely with your recent post on what most definitely should be required reading for every man, woman and child; as well, the video of Ben Shapiro and Piers Morgan should be required viewing. Back to today’s post… It was musical to read! And exactly what I needed to ignite some energy to go vacuum on a rainy cold dreary Monday morning. BT
