Kevin D. Williamson, Asshole of the Day for September 30, 2014
by TheDailyEdge (Follow @TheDailyEdge)
Imagine being so “pro-life” that you think a woman should face the death penalty for aborting a fetus. 
Imagine being so, so “pro-life” that “logically” you think the doctors and nurses who abort a fetus—even to save the of a mother—should face the death penalty, too.
Imagine having thought it through so much that, like National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson, you even have your preferred method of “pro-life” execution—hanging—already decided.
Worth noting: Williamson writes for a publication that likes to bill itself as: “America’s most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion.” Keep that in mind when you read the moronic Kevin D.Williamson-penned bullshit the National Review is now publishing.Williamson’s latest article was his attempt to respond to a Lena Dunham blog post encouraging women to vote. His piece, “Five Reasons Why You’re Too Dumb to Vote… (Reason 1: You get your politics for Lena Dunham)” prompted a quick backlash. Things started rolling downhill faster when Williamson began explaining his penis-based expertise to, among others, Charles Johnson of the blog Little Green Footballs on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Green_Footballs/timelines/516292560310923264NOTE: Tea Party Cat and I hadn’t started Asshole of the Day back in 2012 when Williamson told women to vote for Mitt Romney because his male-producing sperm was superior to Barack Obama’s, which only produces girls.And Williamson lost out to Rush Limbaugh on August 13, despite calling a 9-year-old black boy a “primate” in another National Review piece.
That means this is his first, well-deserved appearance as Asshole of the Day.Full story: Talking Points Memo

NOTE: Tea Party Cat and I hadn’t started Asshole of the Day back in 2012 when Williamson told women to vote for Mitt Romney because his male-producing sperm was superior to Barack Obama’s, which only produces girls.

And Williamson lost out to Rush Limbaugh on August 13, despite calling a 9-year-old black boy a “primate” in another National Review piece.

he’s wearing a Confederate Flag tie! what can you expect from an ignorant, backwards redneck. probably still believes slavery should be legal. women voters? not in his world!

Wearing a confederate flag, although expressing free speech, is unpatriotic.

“Since clinic staff received the news that the abortion privileges requirement had gone into effect late Thursday night, they have called about 100 patients to cancel their appointments. Sarah Wheat, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’ spokeswoman, told Al Jazeera that patients had responded with either silence or panic. One woman had not received the message in time and was turned away in tears from the clinic this morning.

Staff are now rerouting women to one of three abortion clinics still operating in Austin, to Planned Parenthood’s surgical center in Dallas, to Houston or even out of state to New Mexico if they need an abortion past 16 weeks of pregnancy.”

Also, check out National Advocates for Pregnant Women, org that stands up for the rights of women (often the ones with the least means) who have no way of  debunks bad science and challenges religious lunatics in courts.
