alan turing was a genius mathematician who played no small part in saving western civilization

from racist homophobes. Phil Robertson is a racist homophobe who feels western civilization is at risk from gay people like Turing because they are gay. Guess one is getting the most "I stand with" posts on FB among the self described patriots. No point explaining the irony to them. The don't do irony. Well they do it but they just don't know they are.

3. Alan Turing and John Maynard Keynes.

Two of the defining intellects of the 20th century. It must grate on the minds of right-wing bigots.

4. No right wingers hate Keynesian economics so that doesn't bother them. They can't recognize the

value of his intellect apart from that. Turing they can't touch though. I wonder if Fox news or the right wing media even mentioned his being gay or being persecuted in his obit?
