Re: Values Added: Grassroots Politics (Michelle Goldberg & Rich Lowry)

Maybe I'm more out of touch with the left than I thought, but I have no idea what this refers to. Can you point me towards the most mainstream examples of this phenomenon?

Re: Yes, the right wing movement is anti-science.

Re: Not the same
