Bill Maher Calls It Out: Republicans Hate Neil DeGrasse Tyson Because He Is a Black Scientist

Published by

On Real Time host, Bill Maher spoke the truth about why Republicans hate Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Maher said that Republicans hate the Cosmos host because he is a black scientist.


Bill Maher was interviewing Neil DeGrasse Tyson on Real Time when he asked and Cosmos host why Republicans hate him. Before DeGrasse Tyson could answer, Maher offered his own theory, “I think the reason they don’t like you is because you’re a scientist, and a black one, who’s smarter than they are, so, you know, it’s terrible. It’s like Obama. A black person taking a white person’s job by being better at it. How dare you? What are they getting at here? What is the point?”


DeGrasse Tyson answered, “There appears to be some jealousy that the nerd set, the geek set tends to vote Democrat, and I think they want some of those geeks. That’s my sense of this….Look right now Comic-Con is going on in San Diego. Just go there and take a show of hands. How many vote Republican or Democrat? It will be overwhelmingly liberal Democrat.”

DeGrasse Tyson definitely took the high road by blaming political jealousy for their hatred, but the real reason is that he is a man of science. The Republican Party has devolved again into the anti-science party. As Reagan’s big tent has shrunk to the size of a pup tent for two, the anti-science/right-wing evangelical Christian voices have been able to assert themselves loudly.


The vast majority of self-identified Republicans and conservatives don’t believe in evolution. They don’t believe in climate change. The Republican Party may want the votes of the science and nerd set, but their platform rejects everything that these potential voters accept as fact. One of the consequences of the decision to make Obama hate race based is that the racism that is used against the president as a political tactic has grown into racism against all minorities.

There is no doubt that some conservatives feel threatened by Neil DeGrasse Tyson because he is an African-American scientist who they believe is attacking their beliefs. The idea that the Bible and science can’t co-exist is why the Republican Party has been overrun by crusaders against scientific fact. Their hatred for DeGrasse Tyson isn’t only based on race. They hate him, because they perceive him as an enemy to their faith.


Until there is room for science and fact in the Republican Party, the science and geek crowd will most likely continue overwhelmingly to vote Democrat.
