Joyce Carol Oates, the 77 year-old author, professor, and Twitter-genius, condemned Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg Tuesday for hunting down and killing a dinosaur. “So barbaric that this should still be allowed,” the feminist wrote. “No conservation laws in effect wherever this is?”
Apparently, in academia no one has ever heard of “Jurassic Park.” Oates is condemning a photo of Spielberg on the set of his 1993 blockbuster; he’s seated in front of an animatronic dinosaur used in the movie.

Even in the film this dinosaur was not hunted and killed. It was ill from eating the wrong kind of plant.
How comforting that one of America’s “opinion-leaders” is so bubbled she doesn’t recognize one of the world’s most famous directors on the set of one of his most popular films.
How disturbing she doesn’t recognize a freakin’ dinosaur.
This is America’s pro-science crowd, folks.
