Anti-education task force..

As previously covered, Trump seems to be making some kind of unholy alliance with scary religious groups at the moment. The latest "WTF" moment for me was caused by the information that Jerry Falwell Jr. will be leading Trump’s higher education task force. For those that don't know the name, Jerry Falwell (senior) was an evangelical preacher who made a small fortune from preaching his religion to the credulous, so much so that he built himself a University (Liberty University). Now, Falwell famously blamed the 9/11 terrorist attacks on gay people so obviously wasn't the sharpest knife in the box; the only use I can imagine that he'd have for an institution of higher education would be to brainwash a new generation for his descendants (like Falwell Jr) to fleece?

Interestingly someone who attended this establishment posted some of the "science" material taught there in 2007, predictably, it's laughable and you can see a photo of it above. If you want to see a classic "Hitch-slap" for Jerry Falwell take a look at this short video..
