We’ll be thrilled to see #ShutDownAcademia trend Wednesday if it does; If the Left can tweet #DefundThePolice without actually meaning defunding the police, those who’ve have enough of liberal indoctrination through the nation’s universities ought to have a similar rallying cry.
Apparently, though, academia needs to be shut down to eradicate anti-black racism among the liberal white professors whose schools won’t even establish black-only safe spaces across the campus or offer students a stipend for their time organizing Black Lives Matter protests.
The journal Nature, which has recently come up with such hot scientific takes as assigning gender by the genitals one is born with “has no foundation in science,” will be showing once again how pseudoscience and wokeness go hand-in-hand by virtue-signaling its solidarity to reexamine anti-black racism in academia and STEM (the sciences).
On June 10, Nature will be joining #ShutdownStem #shutdownacademia #strike4blacklives. We will be educating ourselves and defining actions we can take to help eradicate anti-Black racism in academia and STEM https://t.co/QtOe1i0FLz. Please join us. pic.twitter.com/R6k11JjqU5

Complete abdication of your responsibilities, @nature. This is unbelievable. So many people have been warning of the politicization of science, and now you're helping to lead the charge in that direction. What on Earth are you doing? Wake the fuck up.

I never saw any "Whites Only" signs outside my pre-med classrooms, but I'm sure they were everywhere. I just couldn't see them. Wish the students of color sitting in class with me would have told me.

You'd might think it would be obvious that taking natural science down the same hyper-politicized path of the social sciences and humanities is not only a good way to lose public trust, but actually leaves you in a LESS inclusive place when you're finally done.
— David Shane (@david_shane) June 9, 2020
They will make it inclusive by force, if much real science will come out of it is another question

Is there any precedent in the history of science for pathetic posturing on this scale

LOL! Math, physics, chemistry, and engineering = subjective and racist now.

The politicization of science continues unabated. Does not bode well for the future. It damages the credibility but then again goes to show scientists are not infallible.

I look forward to everyone dying when the new-physics Grievance Commissars at SJW-CERN attempt to force all matter and anti-matter together in the name of social justice.
Binary particles being a completely unacceptable distinction to allow.

This is ridiculous. Scientific journals should care about science, not political fads. I will actively avoid citing your papers from now on.

You're too late. Science already shut down for the 'pandemic'. I am getting sick of this BS.

Wait wait wait…aren't stem and academia typically seen as very progressive fields? And now you're saying there's entrenched institutional racism in the fields? Odd
— Brandon (@thingsbrandosay) June 9, 2020
You can never be progressive enough.
Shut it down and there's a good chance it will never come back.
Too bad, really.
