Although I enjoyed the Harry Potter series when I was younger and think she's an extremely talented writer, I make it no secret that I'm no fan of JK Rowling's twitter activism. Her comments concerning refugees showed her to be a member of the liberal elite who’s all too willing to invite third-world Muslim migrants into the West to live in low-income neighborhoods, yet suspiciously silent when presented with the offer of housing said beloved refugees in her own home.
To be honest, after those remarks I had pretty much written Rowling off as part of the leftist, globalist agenda we know so well. Yesterday, however, she posted some tweets that both surprised and delighted me.
It’s often been noted by those outside the feminist sphere how hypocritical attacks on conservative or right-leaning women can be. Those who like to champion causes like women’s empowerment, anti-harassment initiatives, and tolerance all too often have no problem throwing sexist slurs at figures like Ann Coulter, Tomi Lahren, Melania Trump, or before she was blue pilled, Megyn Kelly.
It’s never popular to call out bad behavior among those with similar political persuasions as you, and that’s what makes Rowling’s decision to condemn the use of a chauvinist insult against Theresa May and the insincerity of pseudo-feminist males who use such language so admirable. I’m still no fan of Rowling’s political views, but hey, credit where credit is due.
Thanks for calling out the BS, JK. Still waiting to hear where you'll be housing those refugees, though.
