That has to be the most tortured metaphor roaming around the internet today.

Even more reason they should tear down the statue.

I'm sure that the right investigators can find a whole lot more that's been swept under the rug at that school and various affiliations.

This is going to work about as well as comparing anything to the Holocaust.
 
2012-07-16 11:15:15 AM
So this is what, some idiot Republican rambling about how he hates that a university did science that didn't conform to his ignorant worldview, and then compared it to child rape?

Sounds about right. Sounds about Republican.

I would volunteer. I think I got a little dumber reading this person's attempt at thinking. I'm sure his brain still hurts from all that effort.

Well that settles it, we must burn down the town of State College, PA and kill all it's inhabitants. We must not forget the people who went to school there and moved away. For they carry the virus as well.

I think your view up there on your high horse has destroyed any semblance of decency. At the very least, you've stopped showing that you have any in Sandusky/Paterno threads. Just like Gat.

Well... the molestation's kind of worse, objectively. But both were farking scumbags and PSU and State College were wrong to worship them fanatically to the point that they looked the other way.

While I'm thankful of your concern over my lack of decency, it is surprising that while this topic arouses a certain level of anger it's also important to discuss the topic beyond "OMG KILL ALL THE PSU!" However since you seem incapable of separating emotions from the topic and discussing the sociological reasons behind a population of people supporting a flawed man I will only say, Welcome To Fark.

Wait, what?

No matter how bad the cover up of child rape is, the actual child rape is still worse. Sure, cover-ups can be worse for political scandals and the like, but child rape?

0/10 for unoriginality.

1. Stop with the analogy, it's painful beyond words.

2. I'm almost convinced that there's one truth in the Mann part of the story: There are people who believe in climate change, and there are people who don't. The gray area is very, very small, and the two sides aren't going to change their mind for any amount of evidence.

\me? I'll just do what I can to help the environment. What's the worst that happens?
 
2012-07-16 12:25:35 PM
So Mann is the same as Sandusky because he published a paper in a peer reviewed paper that has been independently verified by studies since and has yet to be disproven...

I wonder if NRO knows that Sandusky was found guilty in a court of law on 45 felony counts, with a maximum sentence of 442 years in prison.

By comparison, the people accused in the "Climategate" hacking were cleared of all scientific misconduct charges by the British House of Commons, the CRU Science Assessment Panel, Penn State's internal investigation, a second independent panel convened by the British Government and led by Muir Russell, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Inspector General of the Department of Commerce (NOAA is under Commerce for some reason), and the Inspector General of the National Science Foundation.

But aside from the whole "found guilty over and over in a court of law" vs. "found innocent over and over, even in civil investigations with a lower bar than "beyond reasonable doubt" for establishing guilt", I could see how the nanowatt brains at NRO could be short-circuited on that issue.

The GOP compares climate scientists to child rapists because they don't like their conclusions.
