Mike 'Dirty Jobs' Rowe Destroys Woman Who Wants Him Fired For Being "Ultra-Right Wing Conservative"

Authored by Derek Hunter via The Daily Caller,

TV host Mike Rowe is known for his measured, devastating take-downs of people who attack him or his work. He has perfected the art of subtly twisting the knife in the side of critics with calm, cool language.

This skill was on display Thursday when Rowe responded to a woman criticized his politics on Facebook.

Rowe narrates the show “How The Universe Works” on the Science Channel. The woman, Rebecca Bright, called Rowe an “anti-education, science doubting, ultra-right wing conservative” who should be fired.

“I love the show How the Universe Works, but I’m lost on how the producers and the Science Channel can allow anti-education, science doubting, ultra-right wing conservative Mike Rowe to narrate the show,” Bright wrote, according to Rowe. “There are countless scientists that should be hired for that, or actors, if you must, that believe in education and science that would sound great narrating the show, example: Morgan Freeman. Cancel this fools contract and get any of your scientists so often on the show to narrate it.

In his response, Rowe started off by exhibiting his knowledge of the subject of the show and killing Rebecca with kindness:

Well hi there, Rebecca. How’s it going?

First of all, I’m glad you like the show. “How the Universe Works” is a terrific documentary series that I’ve had the pleasure of narrating for the last six seasons. I thought this week’s premiere was especially good. It was called, “Are Black Holes Real?” If you didn’t see it, spoiler alert….no one knows!!!

It’s true. The existence of Black Holes has never been proven. Some cosmologists are now convinced they don’t exist at all, and the race to prove their actuality has become pretty intense. Why? Because so much of what we think we know about the cosmos depends upon them. In other words, the most popular explanations as to how the universe actually works, are based upon the existence of a thing that no one has been able to prove.

As I’m sure you know, it’s OK to make assumptions based on theories. In fact, it’s critical to progress. But it’s easy these days to confuse theory with fact. Thanks to countless movies and television shows that feature Black Holes as a plot device, and many documentaries that bring them to life with gorgeous CGI effects and dramatic music, a lot of people are under the assumption that Black Holes are every bit as real as the Sun and the Moon. Well, maybe they are, and maybe they aren’t. We just don’t know. That’s why I enjoyed this week’s show so much. It acknowledged the reasons we should question the existence of something that many assume to be “settled science.” It invited us to doubt.

Oftentimes, on programs like these, I’m asked to re-record a passage that’s suddenly rendered inaccurate by the advent of new information. Sometimes, over the course of just a few days. That’s how fast the information changes. Last year for instance, on an episode called “Galaxies,” the original script – carefully vetted by the best minds in physics – claimed there were approximately one hundred billion galaxies in the known universe. A hundred billion! (Not a typo.) I couldn’t believe it when I read it. I mean, the Milky Way alone has something like 400 billion stars! Andromeda has a trillion! How many stars must there be in a universe, with a hundred billion galaxies? Mind-boggling, right?

Well, a few weeks later, the best minds in physics came together again, and determined that the total number of galaxies in the universe was NOT in fact, a hundred billion. They were off. Not by a few thousand, or a few million, or few billion, or even a few hundred billion. The were off by two trillion. That’s right…TWO TRILLION!!

But here’s the point, Rebecca – when I narrate this program, it doesn’t matter if I’m correct or incorrect – I always sound the same. And guess what? So do the experts.

Rowe then slowly turned his keyboard to Rebecca’s idea that he should be fired because doesn’t “believe in education and science,” and it gets brutal:

When I wrote about this discrepancy, people became upset. They thought I was making fun of science. They thought I was suggesting that because physicists were off by one trillion, nine hundred billion galaxies, all science was suddenly suspect, and no claims could be trusted. In general, people like you accused me of “doubting science.” Which is a curious accusation, since science without doubt isn’t science at all.

This is an important point. If I said I was skeptical that a supernatural being put us here on Earth, you’d be justified in calling me a “doubter of religion.” But if I said I was skeptical that manmade global warming was going to melt the icecaps, that doesn’t make me a “doubter of science.”

Once upon a time, the best minds in science told us the Sun revolved around the Earth. They also told us the Earth was flat, and that a really bad fever could be cured by blood-letting. Happily, those beliefs were questioned by skeptical minds, and we moved forward. Science is a wonderful thing, and a critical thing. But without doubt, science doesn’t advance. Without skepticism, we have no reason to challenge the status quo. Anyway, enough pontificating. Let’s consider for a moment, your very best efforts to have me fired.

You’ve called me an “ultra-right wing conservative,” who is both “anti-education,” and “science-doubting.” Interestingly, you offer no proof. Odd, for a lover of science. So I challenge you to do so now. Please provide some evidence that I am in fact the person you’ve described. And by evidence, I don’t mean a sentence taken out of context, or a meme that appeared in your newsfeed, or a photo of me standing next to a politician or a talk-show host you don’t like. I mean actual proof of what you claim I am.

Also, please bear in mind that questioning the cost of a college degree does not make me “anti-education.” Questioning the existence of dark-matter does not make me a “dark-matter denier.” And questioning the wisdom of a universal $15 minimum wage doesn’t make me an “ultra-right wing conservative.” As for Morgan Freeman, I agree. He’s a terrific narrator, and a worthy replacement. But remember, Morgan played God on the big screen. Twice. Moreover, he has publicly claimed to be a “believer.” (gasp!) Should this disqualify him from narrating a series that contradicts the Bible at every turn? If not, why not?

Anyway, Rebecca, my beef with your post comes down to this – if you go to my boss and ask her to fire me because you can’t stand the sound of my voice, I get it. Narrators with unpleasant voices should probably look for other work anyway, and if enough people share your view, no hard feelings – I’ll make room for Morgan.

But if you’re trying to get me fired simply because you don’t like my worldview, well then, I’m going to fight back. Partly because I like my job, and partly because you’re wrong about your assumptions, but mostly because your tactics typify a toxic blend of laziness and group-think that are all too common today – a hot mess of hashtags and intolerance that deepen the chasm currently dividing our country.

Re-read your own post, and think about your actual position. You’ve publicly asked a network to fire the narrator of a hit show because you might not share his personal beliefs. Don’t you think that’s kind of…extraordinary? Not only are you unwilling to engage with someone you disagree with – you can’t even enjoy a show you claim to love if you suspect the narrator might not share your view of the world! Do you know how insular that makes you sound? How fragile?

I just visited your page, and read your own description of you. It was revealing. It says, “I stand my ground. I fear no one & nothing. I have & will fight for what’s right.”

Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t think the ground you’re standing on is worth defending. If you truly fear “no one & nothing,” it’s not because you’re brave; it’s because you’re unwilling to expose yourself to ideas that frighten you. And while I can see that you like to fight for what you think is “right” (in this case, getting people fired that you disagree with,) one could easily say the same thing about any other misguided, garden-variety bully.

In other words, Rebecca, I don’t think you give a damn about science. If I’m wrong, prove it. Take a step back and be skeptical about your own assumptions. Take a moment to doubt your own words, and ask yourself – as any good scientist would – if you’ve got your head up a black hole.

Having said all that, I think you’re gonna love next week’s episode. It’s called Multiple Stars! Check it out, Tuesdays at 10pm, on Science.

Best,
Mike

"Now if we can only get Mike to name the Jew..."

We have to assume that Mike understands the "J" question.  He also knows that to mention this will mean an end to his lucrative stint in their media.

Still... I agree with his argumentative tactics.  Be confident in your opinions, especially if they have truth buttressing them.  Never name call.  And most importantly, use the very words of the antagonist against them.  If they're making asses of themselves, let 'em go.

The essence of snowflake mentality in it's most diseased form. It's an infection. A serious infection that has seeped into many American minds. Glad he took the time to counter this snowflake. She's an example of the stupidity many of us conservatives have to live with...for now.

I remember when Mike Rowe started out on Baltimore TV as the host of a local Sunday-morning real estate "Tour of Homes" sponsored by a realty company. Same soft-spoken delivery, same air of intelligence, same direct connection with the viewer. Even then, I thought the guy had a special talent. Nice to see the Good Guys win.

I don't blame you for having thought that. It's easy to see the guy as another hunky pretty face. I've only seen him on a few Dirty Jobs episodes, and the show did play up that aspect. But if you follow his interviews (plenty on YT) on behalf of the trades as an alternative to wasting four years in college studying some BS humanities stuff, the man is damned articulate and nobody's fool. 

 

Way too few of his kind around today in American public life.

It hasn't "seeped" into American minds as much as it has been "CRAMMED" into American minds via the mainstream media, Hollywood, social media and the music industry. Minds are malleable and they have been skillfully shaped just as the plan prescribed over the last 100 years or so. This is not something we the people are doing wrong unless you include watching TV, news, movies and listening to pop music in the equation.

Its far better when a Jew 'names the Jews', about the 'J' question. This is Dynamite! Elite Insider who was on personal terms with 7 Presidents, names them and proves that Germany was used by them to create Isra hell. The German Jews were the most privileged in all Europe since 1822. Then they stabbed Germany in the back by The London Agreement 1916 in which they promised Britain they would bring America into the war IF Britain 'gave' them Palestine (which was not Britain's to give).Everything we were told about WWI and WWII (and everything since then) is all lies. All should download this pdf asap here and here is a top article, quick/excellent read here

Re Currency Pinto post " I'm making over $14k a month working part time"

I looked into this, and if you sign up (with $200 min on your c/card), you can Bid on Ads/Banners to Lease for a time period and/or Flip it to someone else for Profit or Loss  https://platform.bannerbit.com

If you win the bid Auction, you get rights to collect certain revenue from that ad for the specified period of time. After a period of time (before your lease-own expires), you can try to Flip it to others -- in an attempt to either make more money or recover some fraction of your investment.

Caveat: Just because you own the time-specific Lease on an Ad, does not guarantee positive income. It's pure Capitalism with 100% risk for Profit/Loss on you.

p.s. My $200 c/card was denied by my bank, pending approval from me. As luck would have it, even though they did not get my $200, I still got an account with them -- without having to have risked $200. You're welcome, you ungrateful bitchez.  I just saved some of you whelps $200.

Now there's an unqualified ad hominem attack, and an unsubstantiated slur, if ever I heard one. Forgive my ignorance about Mr. Freeman as I don't follow the lives and utterances of identities but you offer nada in the way of evidence. That's slanderous talk.

I actually don't really care for Freeman's voice. I was flying to Europe last year and he was narrating some thing that was playing on the entertainment system. I was not looking at the screen so all I heard was The voice and it struck me that he's actually not that articulate mispronounces quite a few words.

I guess I'm like when he is shooting a scene for a movie, he did not get to do as many retakes for whatever I was listening to. It was revealing, kind of like Obama when the teleprompter goes off.

I don't understand you Jew haters.  I've know lots of Jews, and like a lot of them.  And they've contributed substantially to the human race.  And while there are some who are repugnant, that doesn't justify insulting all of them as there are repugnant people of all races and religions. 

Now if you want to insult and attack those who are unwilling to give others freedom and peace, I'm all OK with that.

Similar one on one experiences.  They have lots of great abilities.  If you pay attention, they protect their own and will hurt things in conflict with Jewish advancement.  Kind of an unseen no go zone like the shitholes in Dearborn, MI and other parts of the world.

Note the high concentration in law, banking, entertainment.....how did that happen for not such a large group?

Generally speaking, Jews want to ensure comfortable lives for themselves and their families.  So hard work and finding work in fields that compensate well are emphasized.

So when a young Jewish boy or girl studies, gets into a high ranking university (notice I didn't say good school because none are good), and finds a career as a lawyer, doctor, or banker, it wasn't due to some Jewish conspiracy to take over the world.

Parents want what's best for their kids and Jewish parents instill these values at an early age.

Others should try this too.  Or instead they can keep blaming the Jews for their miserable lives.

1. You know absolutely fucking nothing about jewish nepotism.

2. You know absolutely fucking nothing about jewish overrepresentation in the governments, banks, and industries of non-jewish nations.

3. Actually, given your statements, you know about it and are simply paid to cover it up.

4. Crawl back to occupied Palestine and await the hell that is coming for you.

The fucking Jews view raping Goyim (sexually, financially, and thru the media propaganda machine) as sport.  They protect, cover for, and help each other to the exclusion of the Goyim.  The fucking Jews in Israel are presently engaged in their own 'Final Solution' of the Palestinians, and they manage to put nigger bitches entering their 'country' on mandatory birth control.  Great fucking individuals, those fucking Jews.

And if YOU were a Jew living in Israel, I'm sure you would be all for importing even more "nigger bitches" as you call them and giving them free health care, maternal assistance, tax credits and any other government largess that would encourage child-bearing, wouldn't you?

Or... You really wouldn't have a problem slipping those "nigger bitches" some birth control pills.

the jews did it to themselves. when any informed person looks around at all the problems of the usa what do they see? they see jews dominating the media from hollywood to radio to tv undermining the moral and ethical underpinning of polite society, they see jewish bankers destroying the middle class, they see jewish politicians leading the charge on open immigration and the politics of divide and rule, they see jewish lawyers and judges usurping justice and the constitution.

the everyman jew will pay for this arrogance because it is just human nature so deal with it. blame the likes of blankfein, dimon, weistein, lauer, shumer, feinstein, ginsburg and many other jews in prominent places who are leading the usa to hell.
