The organization behind the “March for Science” slammed the Trump Administration’s dropping of the Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB) on ISIS, calling it “an example of how science is weaponized against marginalized people.”
The organization was responding on Twitter to a post by activist Zellie Imani with the Black Liberation Collective, who complained about the cost of the bomb:
Although the organization deleted their tweets, they were captured in a screenshot by meteorologist Ryan Maue:
While the organization was whining about the bomb, tweeting, “Its cost means further diminished resources for vulnerable and marginalized communities in the U,” it also managed to take a shot at White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, whose gaffe about the Holocaust had made national news, by tweeting, “Historically and at present, chemical weapons enabled by scientific progress have directly harmed vulnerable people #SpicerHistory.”
So the fact that the Trump Administration is intent on finishing ISIS off, no matter what it costs, is less important than supporting “vulnerable and marginalized communities in the US?” First of all, just which communities is the organization referring to? Secondly, considering that ISIS has fomented acts of terror across the globe, including the U.S., one would think that supposed “vulnerable and marginalized communities in the US” might be a trifle concerned about their lives being at stake if ISIS is not obliterated before they obliterate us. And lastly, calling ISIS “vulnerable people” is the most insane characterization of them ever penned.
“Historically and at present, chemical weapons enabled by scientific progress have directly harmed vulnerable people #SpicerHistory.”

But then again, these are leftist scientists we are talking about; the same group that decided that the idea of having Bill Nye, the Science Guy, act as the March for Science event’s first honorary co-chair, had to be jettisoned because he is white.
