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.

as far as Im concerned, you fight fire with fire. These people have NO respect at all. an example is just last week, while sitting at the bus stop, minding my own business, one of these blue haired freaks came up to me out of nowhere and said "you must carry that thing(my .44 that I LEGALLY open carry) to compensate for something", to whit I responded "yeah, if I could put holes in communists with my dick I wouldnt need to carry a revolver". What kind of uncouth scumbag goes up to a total stranger, an armed one at that, and insults them? its about time the antifa/blm/ "resist" types start getting a taste of their own medicine

While I agree that it's a bit of a dumb insult, I refuse to defend Theresa May. Even if I voted to leave the European Union, I still voted against her on principle. Her attitude has sickened me ever since I first heard of her!

Using racial, sexual, or other slurs against somebody because they disagree with you or espouse a position you despise, no matter how much their opinions are worthy of derision, never helps anybody but your opposition. When you resort to insulting the person on grounds unrelated to their claims or assertions, you devalue your own arguments. You are, in effect, saying that you're at best irrationally angry and thus have suspect judgment, and at worst have no actual argument to support your position and thus are resorting to ad hominem in a desperate effort to dismiss what might actually be a good point.

thats BS, I dont hesitate to use any insult against those who would deprive me of my liberty and property; that includes racial and gender insults. anyone who wants your god given rights taken away from you, especially one who is publicly vocal about it deserves no respect, no consideration, and shouldnt be considered as a human being.

@Bmagada - Yes, it's a case of identity(feminism) >> identity(generic liberalism). Thinking that JK was calling out BS is an instance of Roaming "projecting." But hey, thinking the best of other people is one of the things that makes Roaming special.

@NateBlank what are "thought crimes"? If you really feel women are the ruin of modern civilization, why are you on a site led by a strong woman? And yes, @RoamingMillennial, FWIW, I am with you - Theresa May deserves to be treated with respect, regardless of any idealogical differences. I would never use a term that vulgar to describe our President, although you may occasionally see me refer to him as "Pumpkin-head" or some such.

@NateBlank - Sorry to hear about your lack of a social life... Do you tell your mother on a regular basis that she is the "ruin of modern society?"

Women are the ruin of modern civilization. Everything from the endless wave of Muslim invaders to thought crimes. There's a woman behind it.

something tells me she wouldnt do the same if it were a female making the same comments. shes fine with this because her feminism allows her to shun any guy which goes along with hwr supirioirity complex. most of her political commentary is about on the same level.

@StuartJSA Lol retard stop mansplaining. "Pretence" is how it's spelled everywhere but America. http://grammarist.com/spelling/pretence-pretense/

Roam I don't think this quite her calling out left wing men for their uniquely bad behavior, I think this is her complaining that men in general aren't close enough to her left wing ideal, I mean she finishes off with "then drop the pretence and own it: you’re not a liberal. 13/14 You’re a few short steps away from some guy hiding behind a cartoon frog. 14/14". But I like the frogs and she misspelled pretense.
