“You are just an ignorant, inarticulate, hate-filled bigot — a typical American — and you are so insignificant that Sara Alcid can’t be bothered to notice.”
– Robert Stacy McCain
Talking back to a Queer Feminist is a now evidently a hate crime or something, and Badger Pundit chronicles how my reply to a “reproductive justice” activist made Sara Alcid a heroic martyr in the “War on Women.” Disagreement is hate, because feminism.
Let’s remember what happened: My editors at The American Spectator assigned me to cover Saturday’s “SlutWalk DC,” a sort of feminist festival in which women celebrate victimhood, and the syllogism can be simply summarized: “Shut up, because rape.”
My description of that memorably ridiculous event prompted Sara Alcid to denounce me as “disgusting.”
We are not allowed to reply to them, you see.
These people are Our Moral Superiors. We are inarticulate subhumans who have no rights, not even the First Amendment free speech right to express disagreement or defend ourselves against insults.
We cannot reply by pointing out that Sara Alcid is a disciple of “queer theory” feminist Judith Butler, or that Sara Alcid works for a 501(c)3 non-profit abortion advocacy organization, or that Sara Alcid views Valentine’s Day as a hateful occasion when “heteronormativity and gender roles … rear their ugly heads.”
We cannot point these things out, because disagreement is hate.
@SaraAlcid You're not being "harassed." You're being mocked, hilariously, and there's a difference.

The flawed logic of their rhetoric, their enthusiasm for bad ideas, their fanatical desire to destroy all that is true, right and decent in the world — no, you can’t point this out, because if you do, some people might say mean things about feminists, and people who say mean things about feminists are evil hateful sexist harassers who are trying to silence and intimidate these courageous women.
On the other hand, when the Southern Poverty Law Center publishes a “hate map” that inspires a deranged pervert to go shoot up the Family Research Council — that’s not hate or harassment.
Progressive activist Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to have his estranged wife involuntarily committed — that’s not hate or harassment.
The obscenely vile things that liberals say about Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and other conservative women — none of that can be condemned as hate or harssment and, in fact, feminists like Sara Alcid generally applaud and participate in the Left’s ongoing campaign to demonize and marginalize conservative women.
You can’t point this out, however, because pointing out the malicious dishonesty of feminists is “harassment and bullying.”
Also, never mention that Sara Alcid is in favor of killing babies, although I think some people might take notice of this.

If Stephanie Herold wants to keep digging that hole, I’m glad to help.
Please, ladies, never doubt your own monopoly on truth. Never consider the possibility that your philosophy is wrong. Never think of the blood of innocent victims you sacrifice on the altar of “choice.” Never waiver, never heed the “still small voice” of conscience, and please never repent your sins, lest you spare yourselves the torments of Hell.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness . . .”
