Niose doesn’t even address education, only sex ed. because this gives him the opportunity to bash the Bible Belt and “traditional values.” What he is doing here is exploiting the tragedy in Charleston to flog his viewpoints on “hyper-patriotism,” a “blood-thirsty” gun culture, sex education, fundamentalist religion and its climate change denial (which “everybody” in the scientific community accepted for years), and evil corporate interests. Niose even refers to fundamentalists and corporate interests as “bedfellows.”
Niose would have you believe that if you disagree with him, you just aren’t thinking critically and are instead a slave to your emotions. This is “intellectualism” and critical thinking at work? Poppycock.
