“Most people here in New York City probably do think you’re an ignorant racist. Your problem though is that Donald Trump is one of us.”
– Dr Peter Woit, Columbia Mathematics Department quantum field theorist, http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=8864
How much is he being paid by Trump? He is certainly supporting the guy.
No mention from Woit of the casualties caused by Hillary Clinton’s bombing of Libya into civil war. This is relevant for physics, because it explains the kind of elitist narcissism that has rotted all areas of academia and other establishments, like government. Woit’s solution is dictatorship, turning off comments on his blog to avoid criticisms. Brave hero.
Update (10 November 2016): God Bless America, and give thanks for Peter Woit’s spoof blog post and many others in the media, for contributing to Trump’s victory
I’ve compared Brexit to the 8 November 2016 election of Donald J. Trump over on my anti-war blog, here. The good doctor Woit has now published another spoof political blog post, The Day After, in which he declares he’s headed to emigrate to Paris (presumably to do the same for the hard-right French National Front’s Marine Le Pen, that he did for Trump).
