We are told that tomorrow 22 April 2017 is again Earth Day, and are advised to celebrate with all manner of activities and observances designed for people of all ages - just google ‘earth day’ and prepare to be overwhelmed. One of the more visible activities promoted by the Left is the ‘March for Science’ held in Washington DC and presumably other locales. The purported purpose of the march is for people to “join the effort to defend the vital public service role science plays in our communities and our world.” Here the progressives’ propagandized presumption is that such a ‘defense’ is needed because the Right, now on Trumpist steroids (trumpoids?), is hell bent on removing, or at least ignoring, science in coming up with new public policies. And what better way to deliver the message to POTUS, COTUS, and now SCOTUS than with massive mobs in synchrony shouting slogans on the National Mall.
