Right Wing Columnist Wants to Hang Women Who Have Abortions


National Review Online correspondent Kevin Williamson went from saying young women are too dumb to vote to saying that women who have abortions should be hanged. We can’t blame Halloween for this macabre nonsense. This is really how Republicans feel about women.

Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs captured the Twitter exchange yesterday, saying,

So this morning on Twitter, this happened; National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson made the real “pro-life” agenda very, very clear, expressing his opinion that women who have abortions should be put to death — by hanging. And not just the women; he says the doctor who performs the abortion, the nurses who assist, and the hospital staff who enable it should also be executed.

Men who actually think women are fellow human beings rather than convenient “penis-homes” didn’t escape attack yesterday either, with Charles Johnson quipping that “I don’t know where anyone gets the idea that misogyny and sexism are core values of today’s conservative movement — except maybe from Breitbart ‘News,'”:

Needless to say, the Right Wing has some very serious issues not only with America but with reality itself if they’re confusing themselves with real men. And lest anyone believe for even a minute that Michele Bachmann meant what she said when she said to Michelangelo Signorile of HuffPo of gay marriage, that “it’s not an issue,” adding, “In fact, it’s boring, she now claims that the whole exchange was an attempt by the media to divide Republicans on the issue.

When she realized what she said was shocking to conservatives, of course, the new truth had to be that she had never said any such thing. How could she ever have taken such a forgiving approach to a core culture war issue while fellow conservative Williamson wants to hang people, for crying out loud?

This, despite, as Signorile points out, “she told Meghan McCain two weeks ago in an interview: ‘I think that was an issue, yeah. I think it was in the last election and the previous election, but I think, you know, it’s changing now.'”

Williamson, loathsome as he is, at least has the intellectual honesty to stand by what he says, that he wants to murder women for having control of their own healthcare decisions.

There is so much hatred for humanity on the Religious Right that it has become difficult to fathom its depth. This hatred has always been there, ever since the earliest days of the Christian movement. The Pagan critic Celsus commented on their hatred of humanity 18 centuries ago, and he was clearly running into people like Bachmann and Williamson.

As I wrote yesterday, there have always been Christians who are willing to live and let live, but because they’re busy living and letting live, you don’t ever hear from them. You hear from the likes of Williamson and Bachmann, for whom tyranny is a core issue. That is, freedom for them, but no freedom for you and me.

But what is striking is the ISIL-like viciousness of conservatives. We don’t need to go to Syria to fight ISIL, given that we have our own ISIL right here in America, wishing to deprive of us our freedoms first hand. If we are going to combat world terrorism, ought we not fight it first here at home?

These people want to kill everyone who is not one of them. Kill gays, kill women who have abortions or who need abortions but die because they’re not available or only in back alleys, kill Muslims who refuse to convert. For Williamson, facts are a “metaphysical dodge” and zygotes are people simply because he says so. If we disagree, we die.

The list goes on. And it’s a long list, and they are very well armed, have lots of ammunition, and seem eager to use it for more than accidentally killing each other. Once they figure out which end is the barrel, they will be very dangerous indeed.

Spelling, obviously, is optional. Once they’ve figured out how to aim, a bullet fired by a “moran” is as dangerous as that fired by a moron.

And all the while they’re busy talking about taking away OUR freedoms and killing us, they’re complaining about how persecuted they are.

It would be easy to laugh if one weren’t so busy throwing up. Whatever these people are afflicted with, it is as dangerous as Ebola. The problem is, it isn’t them who will be its immediate victims – it is US.
