It's a play on The Atlantic's hiring, and subsequent firing, of Kevin Williamson.

Ahhhh...OK. Thanks Doc and Flex.

His comments on 1/4 of US women were bad enough. But he also went after Laverne Cox, and she is a GODDESS. So fuck him sideways.

Fox News person complains about ideological purity and the politics of demonization, seemingly unironically.

These are all status-obsessed people, whose sense of self depends on the rabble knowing who their betters are. Liberal or conservative, it doesn't matter. It's why gazillionaires whine about not being respected by us slime—it's not enough to be materially prosperous, they crave aristocratic deference, too. So they see the "rude manners" as an assault on their own status as a group. Authoritarianism going on in the country? Well, maybe, but that doesn't mean being rude to the elites, dear boy! It's that kind of tone-deafness that fuels revolutions because it erodes any credibility that they possess meaningful status.

We've finally found a large group of people suspicious of the corporate media … and they're conservatives? Postmodern existence really does vary between intoxication and nausea.
