Mike Rowe’s use of common sense and logic has been a constant these days in the face of irrationality.

Case in point, his epic take-down of a man named Chuck Atkins, who employed the oft used logical fallacy tactic of liberals to try to smear Rowe.

In Mike Rowe’s latest ‘Off The Wall’ posting on Facebook, he takes Atkins to task in the very first paragraph.

Off The Wall

Chuck Atkins says…
“One of the tenants of white nationalism is that college educated people are academic elitests. Comment? No? I’m not surprised. You never take a political stand because you don’t want to alienate anybody. Its bad for business. I get it. But there is a current of anti intellectualism in this country – promoted by Republicans. Those people love you, and they think your initiative is their initiative. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is kickin our ass academically.”

Hi Chuck
Since we’re being candid, allow me to say how much I dislike your post. Everything about it annoys me – your smug and snarky tone, your appalling grammar, your complete lack of evidence to support your claims, and of course, the overarching logical fallacy that informs your entire position. What really bugs me though, is the fact that you’re not entirely wrong. It’s true; I haven’t shared any political opinions this week, in part anyway, because doing so might very well be “bad for business.”

Here’s Mike Rowe’s original Facebook post. Read the whole thing.
