Bill Nye at a Press Conference at UMass. (Boston Magazine)
There are three people on left who have become the “Jesters” of the Progressive Court. They are Vice President Joe Biden, former Vice President Al Gore and now Bill Nye the “Science Guy”. Whenever these three gentlemen open their mouths something tragically funny usually falls out.
Case in point. After giving a commencement speech at the University of Massachusetts Lowell where he channeled Al Gore as he preached to the graduates about Climate Change, the Lowell Sun reports that during a press conference he stated that Conservatives need to figure out a way to be less…Conservative (video below):
Q: You mentioned in your speech that there are political challenges when it comes to addressing climate change. Do you blame a certain political party for that?
A: I’m not an expert on politics, but the way the conservatives nominate their presidential candidate forces that person to be too conservative, to be too far to the right. If the conservative party can figure out how to relax that or adjust that, I think we would have a more constructive approach. Right now we have people that deny climate change just ’cause it’s not their idea. That’s what it seems like. That’s not in anybody’s best interest.
I hate to break it to Mr. Nye, but if a Conservative was less of a Conservative then they wouldn’t be considered a Conservative. They would be called McCain or Boehner, you know…Progressive light.
But if Mr. Nye is really serious about wanting to work with Conservatives then might I suggest he take his own advice and be a little less Progressive? I mean if he and his Progressive friends can get together to “relax or adjust that” and be a bit more.. well.. Conservative that would be great. (Sheesh)
I’ll hold my breath waiting… or not.
