Yawn. Maybe Kevin shouldn’t suggest hanging women and expect people not to forget that he said that. He’s entitled to express his opinion but you can be damn sure that people have a right to raise attention to what he’s written. Maybe if Kevin had written that Communism was just misunderstood, conservatives would be understanding .//

Williamson had a right to say that women who get abortions should be hanged and the people who knew about that had a right to raise hell about the Atlantic hiring his sexist ass.

Nice going with that hire in the first place. That was very Rush in the Monday Night Football booth. Everyone knew who he was and what he did, but they hired his ass anyway.

buh bye

I don’t think so. That’s the kind of talk that gets people killed.

Not only did Trump not throw out the first pitch for the Nationals home opener today, but, the planned military flyover was cancelled because it conflicted with Presidential transit to Andrews AFB

He has the right to say those things in the same way people have the right to stab themselves in the leg.

I don’t think you’re wrong but I meant he had a right to say it without being imprisoned. I do agree completely though it’s dangerous as hell rhetoric and shouldn’t be just dismissed as free speech.

Yep, if he wants to show the whole world he’s an unrependent sexist douchebag, go for it. I do understand what Skip is saying though. That kind of shit does encourage violence against women who exercise their LEGAL right to choose.

I can’t believe a regularly featured writer for National Review turned out ot be a dipshit. Said no one who actually understands what NRO is all about and has been about since the virulent racist Buckley ran it.

From downthread, as we seem to be in “Trump has declared confidence in [Next person who looks likely to be booted out]” Watch Mode:

We used to joke about this sort of thing in the UK in the 1990s, mainly due to the amount of Ministers that resigned in disgrace and scandal during John Major”s reign as Prime Minister up to 1997, when Tony Blair’s New Labour project obliterated his government in that year’s General Election.

The scandals were pretty small scale for the six years he was PM, compared to Trump’s first year alone, and the scandals weren’t really his fault- it was mainly the hubris of an administration that had been in power since 1979, and having won 4 General Elections on a row, thought they could get away with anything. (Okay, there was that small matter of John Major having an affair with Edwina Currie, but that didn’t come to light until well after both had left the UK Cabinet.)

Anyhow, during Major’s tenure, there was usually some sort of press release along the lines of “The Prime Minister has expressed their full confidence in [Current Minister engulfed in scandal]”, and everybody would be like: Haha, expect their resignation to spend more time with their family within the month.

These days, it seems that with Trump, even an unspecified amount of publicly declared confidence appears to guarantee being booted unceremoniously out the door within a week, tops, or maybe even before I’ve posted this comment.

She’s also autistic and disabled too but she went after St. Bernie of Sanders. She’s absolutely right and Zogby is absolutely wrong and shows again why the Sanders coalition is clueless about outreach. As for those lost seats. Did Bernie campaign for any of those Democrats that lost their seats? Hillary and Obama did.

Jeff B.

@EsotericCD
Why should any conservative writer or thinker of any note, daring, or intellect agree to work for the Atlantic when it is now proven that they can be bullied into firing them by an astro-turfed internet lynch mob?

Does Jeff B. know what “astro turf” means in this context. I think he used it because it sounded evil. How does he know all the calls, emails, tweets, etc. were fake and paid for by some outside guy like a Soros?

I contacted The Atlantic…where is my check dammit! And even if I wasn’t paid, the nefarious group that supported me needs to give me an attaboy.

Grumble.

Has Bernie ever thought that the reason why we lost seats in the Obama years was because our base got lazy? And I’m sorry but just calling Obama a charismatic guy really does a disservice to his accomplishments as both a man and President. But Bernie knows that. And as I said, where the hell was Bernie campaigning for incumbent Democrats in 2010, 2012, and 2014? Jane Kleeb and James Zogby should ask themselves that.

How about just pushback to progressive policies? Republicans made a lot of hay linking policies to cultural issues, and Democrats simply didn’t work on raising the base (which INCLUDES POCs and women).

But yeah he was just “charismatic”.
