Are you a left-leaning voter who thought Green Party candidate Jill Stein might be a suitable refuge after Hillary Clinton's eyes glazed over at the prospect of picking up moderate Republicans? Sucks to be you! Stein not only panders to anti-vaxxers, but thinks WiFi is bad for childrens' brains.
We should not be subjecting kids’ brains especially to that. And we don’t follow that issue in this country, but in Europe where they do, they have good precautions around wireless—maybe not good enough, because it’s very hard to study this stuff. We make guinea pigs out of whole populations and then we discover how many die. And this is like the paradigm for how public health works in this country and it’s outrageous, you know.
Stein, a medical doctor, knows that there's no evidence that Wi-Fi (or other non-ionizing radio waves such as over-the-air TV or your baby monitor) causes any harm. The thing that's weird is this: unlike Clinton, she can be direct and truthful about what her principles are. She doesn't need to play this game. She has no chance of winning and does not need to triangulate her appeal to a broad coalition of voters.
Yet, she's angling to pick up another marginal constituency—people who think vaccines and radio waves fry their childrens' brains—in the vain hope of turning 2% into 2.5%. It's a lesson about the nature of people who become professional politicians: they're egomaniacal freaks who desperately need to win, and every vote is another molecule of supply for their narcissism.
