Georgia Governor Orders Statewide Ban on Science

ATLANTA (The Borowitz Report)—In his latest response to the coronavirus pandemic, Georgia’s governor, Brian Kemp, has issued a sweeping statewide ban on science.

“Over the past few weeks, scientific information has been spreading throughout the state of Georgia like wildfire,” Kemp said. “We need to flatten the truth curve.”

Under the executive order, Georgians can be fined as much as five hundred dollars for visiting Web sites containing evidence-based information.

Additionally, Kemp is issuing a stay-at-home order for all Georgians planning a trip to a library or bookstore.

The governor said that Georgians could once again visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site “as soon as the rest of its data has been safely removed.”

Kemp’s zero-tolerance policy on science drew strong praise from his Republican colleague Donald J. Trump.

“Congratulations to Brian Kemp for having the guts to get tough on science, unlike those beauties Andrew Cuomo, Jay Inslee, and that woman from Michigan,” he tweeted.

Trump’s support has reportedly emboldened Kemp, who is said to be considering a statewide ban on integers.
