JK Rowling Calls Out Liberal Male Hypocrisy

Pro-Refugee Rowling Earns a Few Points in My Book

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.

there is also a difference in how you address another citizen that you have an honest disagreement with and the way you address a sworn enemy. Ann Coulter covers this subject brilliantly in the first chapter of her book "How to talk to a liberal....if you must" Now I dont agree with coulter about 30-50% of the time, but on that one she is spot on

So I believe in freedom of speech but I also believe in consequence of action, just because you "can" call someone a whore doesn't mean you should! If you call someone a whore and then J.K. Rowling writes a 14 tweet rant about you, which springs Roaming into writing this truthful article then so be it. You can't complain about "muh rights" because you had them in the first place and no one was saying you don't, but other people have theirs. Plus you look rude and unlikable- you're not a 'cuck' if you don't call a woman a whore, it's just being a respectful adult. (In response to some comments above)

Thing is, if you scream back at them, you're giving them what they want. They know they'll get a pass on any bad behavior in which they engage, but that you'll be called out on it. It's the classic bullying technique of picking on somebody until they dare to respond, and then crying like you've had your arm broken and getting the teacher to punish them for having reacted. Only here, the "teacher" is the mass media, and they are not just dupes but deliberately on the side of the bullies. It's a tactic that a professional group out-and-out admitted to employing at Trump rallies: deliberately attack and provoke people until somebody - anybody - responds with ire so you can film that and act like Trump supporters are all violent hayseeds.

if someone who disagrees with your politics calls you a whore then at least you know that you've won. If they have to resort to ad hominem then they cannot defeat your argument.
