I admit to being stunned that there are still men shaking their fists on the white-males-only lawn over #KevinWilliamson.This piece is even more egregious for its casual claim that Williamson is cruel yet that's somehow intellectually pure.

It is not.

There is no world where it is mere envelope-pushing to call for the lynching--let's call it what it is--of women for exercising their legal rights over their own bodies, nor is it intellectually acceptable to assert the supremacy of whiteness nor claim refute LGBT identities. 2/
Since people from the center to the left casually refer to everyone as Nazis these days, when a man whose ideology & intellectual pursuit is aligned with the more brilliant minds of the Third Reich, its acknowledgement is ignored, its reality occluded.
Williamson is one such.

In the flurry of attention to #KevinWilliamson, there's been zero mention that the exchange that resulted in Williamson's firing from @TheAtlantic was with the insufferable editor of @NRO, Charles Cooke, who agreed 100% that women should be executed for having abortions.
"I would totally go with treating it like any other crime up to and including hanging,ā€ Williamson said.
Cooke quickly concurred: ā€œI absolutely agree.ā€ (see @Shareblue for more of this exchange)

Whither comment from @NRO either affirming they are fine with hanging women or no?
In February I had a testy exchange with Cooke who called me "stupid" for calling him out for being the first person to attack David Hogg. Note that because he's a white guy with a British accent, neither he nor @NRO received any internet penalty except, apparently, from me.
