Bill Nye the Science Guy made a bold claim in a Vox interview leading up to Memorial Day, saying the U.S. Constitution supports his notion that those who question science are unpatriotic.

Heres his exact quote:

When you have people denying this basic process, and how we all got here, its offensive to me intellectually. And I happen to think its unpatriotic. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall promote the progress of science and useful arts. So if youre a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think youre not doing your job.

But Twitchy noted (via TheBlaze) that the words Nye pulled from Article I, Section 8 are taken way, way out of context, and do not remotely mean what he claimed.

Heres what the Constitution actually says after the quote Nye pawned off:

To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;

Yep, thats right. The Progressive tool tried to make a section about American copyright and patent law all about climate change and bashing so-called deniers as un-patriotic.

How pathetic.

Some folks responded to the Vox tweet about the Nye interview and werent too happy about his deliberate deceptio:
