Elitist Harvard Professor Believes Anti-Lockdown Protests are the Consequence of Christian “Malignant Delusion”

Published

on

Harvard professor Steven Pinker criticized Evangelical Christianity for its alleged role in sparking anti-lockdown protests.

Pinker originally posted a tweet supporting a theory that came from an opinion piece in the Washington Post which attacked Evangelical Christians.

“Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier. Exhibit A: What’s really behind Republicans wanting a swift reopening? Evangelicals,” he originally tweeted.

Pinker’s subsequently deleted the post after considerable backlash. The article that Pinker shared was originally authored by Gary Abernathy. In it, Abernathy claimed that the anti-lockdown protests were spurred not just by support for President Donald Trump, but also a strong focus on the afterlife which allegedly made Christians not care much about the virus.

The article highlighted the following:

Christian fundamentalism is often fatalistic. As far as many evangelicals are concerned, life passes quickly, suffering is temporary, and worrying solves nothing. That’s not a view that comports well with long stretches of earthly time spent waiting out business closures or stay-at-home orders. It should be no surprise that a person’s deepest beliefs about the world influence how they measure the risks they’re willing to take.

Abernathy reached the following conclusion:

When ruminating over why there are millions of people who don’t seem to panic over a global pandemic or other life-threatening event, critics should remember that right or wrong, it often involves a belief in something even bigger than people named Trump, Hannity or Limbaugh.

Pinker’s tweeted received tremendous backlash from conservative commentators such as Dinesh D’Souza.

He tweeted:

Christopher Hitchens once described this pompous Harvard pedant as ‘educated beyond his intelligence.’ Pinker here proves Hitchens right. People want to get back to their jobs, their friends, their life, but Pinker insists their real motive is ‘belief in an afterlife.’

Pinker is a detached elite who has the luxury of having a cushy position at one of the country’s most prestigious institutions.

For him, the struggle of the middle class is foreign.

And like most elites, he can’t handle push back.

So it’s only natural that he delete his post after so much criticism.

CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments

Published

On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.

They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”

Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions.  She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.

Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.

Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.

“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.

In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.

“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.

It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.

CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.

But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
