Video: The Left's War on Science

Many in the media say there's a conservative war on science. Is this true? No, says John Tierney.

Many in the media say there’s a conservative war on science. Is this true? No, says John Tierney, contributing editor at the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal. Tierney says, “The real war on science is the one from the Left.”

Gender differences, IQ trends, genetically modified foods. Tierney says the Left stifled research into what could have been a second Green Revolution to feed Africa.

People who study gender difference have leaned to keep quiet, says Tierney: “You can’t say that there are more men are more aggressive, more risk-taking, that status matters and making money matters more to them.”

Finally, Tierney complains that Universities are utterly dominated by leftists. In the social sciences, Democrats outnumber Republicans by at least eight to one. In some fields like sociology it’s 44 to one. Students are more likely to be taught in sociology by a Marxist [25%] than by a Republican [2%].

Tierney says, “Once an academic department gets a majority of people who are on the Left, they start hiring people like themselves, and pretty soon the whole department is that way. They start to think that their opinions and that their interests are not only the norm but the truth.”

John Stossel says: Think about that, next time you hear about a “conservative war on science.”
