Book Burning Morons

Here is the Nazi book burning scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Good thing we don’t have idiots in this country who go around burning books.

Those must be a couple of teabaggers, the sort of idiots who go around burning books that challenge their narrow, ignorant view of the world. Oh wait. I found this picture on the blog Watt’s Up with That. It turns out that these two people are from the San Jose State University Meteorology Department.

From the Fahrenheit 451 department comes this indictment of California’s higher education’s “tolerance” for opposing views. When I first got the tip on this, I thought to myself “nobody can be this stupid to photograph themselves doing this” but, here they are, right from the San Jose State University Meteorology Department web page:

The caption from the SJSU website reads:

This week we received a deluge of free books from the Heartland Institute {this or this }. The book is entitled “The Mad, Mad, Made World of Climatism”. SHown above, Drs. Bridger and Clements test the flammability of the book.

Maybe they just can’t help themselves, note the pictures on the wall.

Here is a screencap of the website relevant section:

This is the link for book:The Mad Mad Mad World of Climatism

I think Drs. Bridger and Clements have proved the point of the book quite well.

I am shocked that tolerant, liberal academics would burn books and suppress dissenting points of view. I thought that universities were centers of open inquiry. I guess we know who the real book burning morons are.
