Last week, conservative columnist Denise McAllister sent out a tweet denouncing abortion culture and the feminists who have made it their job to turn Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh into a vicious monster on the suspicion that he might overturn the left’s greatest golden calf: Roe v. Wade.
“At the root of [Roe v. Wade] hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex,” tweeted McAllister. “Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.”
Now, you may agree with this insight into feminist culture or not, but you can at least have the decency to agree that McAllister should be able to make this point without being driven into hiding by death threats. Unfortunately, though, we don’t live in that world anymore. McAllister not only received personal death threats that referenced her address but shame and ridicule from Twitter twits who appeared to relish in the idea that her personal safety was now compromised.
“I am facing legit death & rape threats because I have dared to call out women who are hysterical about abortion and to challenge them to be responsible and not to elevate sex to the point that they’re willing to kill human life to avoid their responsibilities. How sick is that?” McAllister tweeted.
But perhaps not as sick as the responses.
From PJ Media:
Some people responded with sympathy … to the person making the death and rape threats!
“People don’t react well to your extremism,” a user named Monika D. responded.
“Sweet Mary this is really something. What’s the word I’m looking for? Unhinged. That’s the word. This is really unhinged,” Emily Willingham, a blogger with 11,000 followers, declared.
“Uh, what? who ordered the crazy word salad with a side of toxic internalized misogyny?” tweeted Sheri Lynch, an author and radio personality with 19,000 followers.
AlterNet reporter Matthew Chapman took McAllister’s tweet as evidence that pro-life activists don’t care about protecting life… “I love it when these people just straight-up admit their goal is controlling women, not ‘protecting life’. We all know it, it’s just refreshing when they say it,” he tweeted.
A “pro-choice” activist with 6,500 followers tweeted, “May God have mercy on your soul. I sure would not.”
Andre Brock, a self-described “writer at large” in Washington state, took it upon himself to tweet, “Too bad your mother didn’t have an abortion.”
If anything could ever prove McAllister’s point that left-wing women have taken on the abortion fight as a war for their very own existence, the responses on Twitter did it quite nicely. It seems unimaginable that the right TO KILL YOUR UNBORN BABY could ever motivate so many women (and badly misguided men), but there you have it. That’s the world we live in now.
Make America great again? It might be too damn late.
