Premise: If you can’t find a conservative columnist who doesn’t advocate for hanging women who have abortions, then don’t hire a conservative columnist. I don’t really know what else to say. https://t.co/w3fW5vbQI9

I know that it’s a complicated moment to hire right-wing writers. The right-wing itself has become so radicalized, regressive, and violent, that no writer emerges to prominence without promoting terrible things. I don’t have a solution other than to change our culture, change our politics, change our discourse, change.
But how do we do that without drawing a line of some sorts? Without saying that if you advocate for horrible, violent, bigoted, positions, you’re not welcome?
- Williamson called a black child a “primate”.
- Williamson called for hanging women who have abortions.
This can’t be just glossed over. I don’t know what else to say.
