Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson Tweets Stats After Shootings – Leftists Lose Their Minds

Published

on

Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson sent out a factual tweet after the mass shootings over the weekend. The tweet contained proven facts on guns and shootings. The left proceeded to lose their minds and shred the poor guy… who, by the way, is not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination. The meltdown on the left was epic and insane.

Tyson tweeted: “In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings. On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose … 500 to Medical errors. 300 to the Flu. 250 to Suicide. 200 to Car Accidents. 40 to Homicide via Handgun. Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.”

According to The Daily Wire, the numbers that Tyson tweeted out appear to be accurate, except for the statistic about the number of deaths that occur over a 48-hour period from medical errors. A Johns Hopkins University study claims that 250,000 people die per year in the U.S. from medical errors, which equates to 684 deaths per day — or 1,300+ deaths over a 48-hour period.

Every leftist gun-control activist out there went into a tailspin after that tweet. A tweetstorm descended upon Tyson with the attendant fury you would expect from dedicated Marxists who hate constitutional rights and freedoms.

From The Daily Wire:

“Far-left anti-gun activist Shannon Watts, who has a history of lying, tweeted: “Cold take, Neil. 200+ Americans died from gun violence in the past 48 hours. And you list causes of death that are researched, regulated and also happen in other high-income countries. Our gun violence crisis is preventable and senseless and driven by a special interest.”

“Notorious anti-Semite Marc Lamont Hill tweeted: “This is dumb.”

“Qatari-funded Al Jazeera employee Sana Saeed tweeted: “oh cool. found the worst take imaginable on mass shootings, everyone.”

“Ethan Klein tweeted: “Neil says it’s all good guys! Apparently we don’t need to worry about mass shootings because it kills less people than the Flu.”

“Tyson later cowered to the online mob and apologized for stating facts, writing in a statement:

Yesterday, a Tweet I posted in reaction to the horrific mass shootings in America over the previous 48 hours, killing 34 people, spawned mixed and highly critical responses.

“If you missed it, I offered a short list of largely preventable causes of death, along with their average two-day death toll in the United States. They significantly exceeded the death toll from the two days of mass shootings, including the number of people (40) who on average die from handgun homicides every two days.

“I then noted that we tend to react emotionally to spectacular incidences of death, with the implication that more common causes of death trigger milder responses within us.

“My intent was to offer objectively true information that might help shape conversations and reactions to preventable ways we die. Where I miscalculated was that I genuinely believed the Tweet would be helpful to anyone trying to save lives in America. What I learned from the range of reactions is that for many people, some information –-my Tweet in particular — can be true but unhelpful, especially at a time when many people are either still in shock, or trying to heal – or both.

“So if you are one of those people, I apologize for not knowing in advance what effect my Tweet could have on you. I am therefore thankful for the candor and depth of critical reactions shared in my Twitter feed. As an educator, I personally value knowing with precision and accuracy what reaction anything that I say (or write) will instill in my audience, and I got this one wrong.

“Respectfully Submitted
“Neil deGrasse Tyson

Responses toward the celebrity scientist and Harvard grad made Tyson the No. 1 trending topic in America on Twitter, ranking alongside the following hashtags: #ThisIsAmerica, #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism, and #TrumpTerrorists. I was disgusted when Tyson seemed to cave on this and walk it back. Facts don’t lie but leftists sure do.

Pardon my lack of sensitivity here, but this is just dumb. Tyson’s tweet was correct and appropriate. It’s these leftists that are idiots here. They love Tyson when he’s making fun of Christianity or God in general, but put out factual stats on guns and mass shootings and they didn’t hesitate to turn on him like a pack of rabid red wolves.

Thank God for our Border Patrol. Sanctuary politicians are working against them, like in Maryland where the 9th illegal alien sex predator has been arrested, but our Border Patrol & ICE agents are scooping them up as fast as they can.

Fox5 San Diego is reporting:

SAN DIEGO — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested five people Saturday night who were involved in a human smuggling event, officials said. Included in the group was a man who had two prior felony arrests and more than 10 years of prison time.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., Border Patrol agents near Tecate, California, observed a suspicious vehicle traveling on State Route 94. The driver noticed an agent behind him as he drove his 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, officials said. He tried to swerve out of the way of the agent but was blocked by another car.

The agent pulled over the suspicious sedan and questioned five people in the car. Three passengers in the backseat claimed to be from Mexico and said they did not have documentation that allowed them to be in the U.S., agents added.

All five were arrested and taken to a nearby station. During routine processing, it was revealed that one of the men who claimed to be a Mexican national was actually from El Salvador and had a criminal history, which included indecent liberties with a child and possession of a controlled substance.

The driver and front passenger, who are U.S. citizens, face human smuggling charges and the El Salvadoran man faces Federal charges for criminal re-entry. The vehicle was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

DULZURA, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested five people Saturday night who were involved in a human smuggling event. Included in the group was a man who had two prior felony arrests and more than 10 years prison time.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., on September 14, Border Patrol agents near Tecate, Calif., observed a suspicious vehicle traveling on State Route 94. Noticing a Border Patrol agent behind him, the driver of the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze accelerated and attempted to evade the agent’s vehicle. However, impeded by another vehicle on the two-lane road, the driver was unable to evade the agent. Using lights and a siren, the agent pulled over the suspicious sedan.

When the agent questioned the five people in the car, the three backseat passengers claimed to be from Mexico and admitted they had no documentation that allowed them to be in the U.S.

Have you had enough yet, folks? How many more of our women and children have to be raped for this insanity to stop?

This is what the left wants. They don’t care about the safety of the American people. Illegal immigration must end.

Via Breitbart:

An illegal alien has been arrested after allegedly raping a woman in the sanctuary county of Montgomery County, Maryland, making the ninth illegal alien to be charged with rape or sex crimes against children in less than two months in the region.

According to ABC 7 News’ Kevin Lewis, 23-year-old illegal alien Josue Gomez-Gonzalez was arrested this week after he allegedly raped a female friend of his who was intoxicated at the time of the sexual assault.

A police report obtained by Lewis details how Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly attempted to force himself on the woman while the two were in his car. After taking the woman back to his apartment, as she was intoxicated and cannot remember parts of the evening, the woman told police that Gomez-Gonzalez raped her.

The next morning, the woman woke up to serious vaginal pain and called police, who took her to a nearby hospital where a rape kit was administered.

After identifying Gomez-Gonzalez as her rapist, police questioned the illegal alien, and they said he admitted to raping the woman while in his car and sexually assaulting her. Continue Reading

Via ABC7:

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. — In the wake of heated protests centered on illegal immigration in Maryland’s most populated county, authorities there have arrested an undocumented immigrant for the alleged rape of an intoxicated woman.

Josue A. Gomez-Gonzalez, 23, of Gaithersburg, is charged with second-degree rape and second-degree assault.

Around 4:30 p.m. on September 10, police say Gomez-Gonzalez picked up his female friend with plans to take her out to dinner. On the way to the restaurant, the two stopped at a liquor store and purchased a bottle of Hennessy cognac. They then drove to a park in Gaithersburg where they managed to polish off the entire bottle, according to investigators.

The victim recalled feeling extremely drowsy and says she started to doze off in the car. That’s when Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly began to kiss her and tried to “pull down her leggings.”

“Each time Victim A told Gomez-Gonzalez to stop, that she would scream or she would call the police,” Montgomery County special victims detectives wrote in court documents.

Walking Up Kolfage's Border Wall – Final Day Of Construction

This is a video I shot on the day we were placing the final bollard section at the top of Airman Kolfage's border wall we built. I walked from the bottom to the top. It was around 100 degrees out. I was on the mountain 15 hours that day (It was actually my birthday), documenting the final section being put in. I sped up the video so it's in time-lapse format. Projects 2 & 3 are starting soon. Thanks for everyone's support! Donate for sections 2 & 3 here: https://webuildthewall.us/donation-form/

The victim remembered exiting the car at one point to urinate in a bush. As she walked back, she fell to the ground due to her level of intoxication. Gomez-Gonzalez — who is 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds — allegedly called two of his friends to help carry the victim back to his car.

“Wow, she’s really fu—- up,” one of those friends reportedly stated upon seeing the woman.

The victim told detectives she had memories of Gomez-Gonzalez later leading her up the main steps to his town home along the 200 block of Garth Terrace in Gaithersburg, located near the Lakeforest Mall. Once inside the residence, Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly kissed the victim’s face, neck and breasts, stripped down and got on top of her.

The victim says she attempted to push Gomez-Gonzalez off and managed to hit him the chest, but to no avail. Then she passed out, saying she awoke the following morning with intense pain.

“When Victim A went to the bathroom she noticed she was bleeding,” detectives noted in court documents. “Victim A noticed Gomez-Gonzalez had already left for work by the time she woke up. Victim A immediately called the police who responded and transported Victim A to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital where she consented to a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam.” Continue Reading
