In an interview with Vox, Bill Nye explains what he thinks it means to be patriotic.

You see, it’s science!

And to back up this assertion, Bill Nye quotes the Constitution. For real:

When you have people denying this basic process, and how we all got here, it’s offensive to me intellectually. And I happen to think it’s unpatriotic. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall “promote the progress of science and useful arts.” So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your job.

Except that’s not really what Article I, Section 8 says. Notice what Nye left out of his quote:

Now he’s Bill Nye the Constitutional Scholar Guy? What a clown. He’s using the section of the Constitution that is the basis for patent law to back up his assertion that questioning the science behind his climate alarmism is somehow unpatriotic.

Exactly.
