.@nytimes on @TheAtlantic decision to fire Kevin Williamson.… #FireKevin Let's explore some of the outrage on the other side about this, shall we? /1
Free speech is a constitutional guarantee and it guarantees that the government will not jail you for what you say. It does NOT guarantee you to a job ever, and certainly not when your employer is losing readership and therefore money bc of your bigoted views. #FireKevin /2
Consumers also have free speech to voice their opinion of your speech to those who decide whether you stay employed (see how those rights work? everyone gets them. yay democracy!) More people spoke against your bigotry than stood up for it. Fair and square. #FireKevin /3

BREAKING: Kevin Williamson, who called for women who’ve had an abortion to be hanged, was just 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱 from @TheAtlantic in the face of mounting pressure from pro-choice activists, NARAL, @UltraViolet & the media. #FireKevin
Extremists like Kevin Williamson deserve condemnation—NOT a byline to espouse racist, misogynist, right-wing extremism. Normalizing violence against women who are making these important decisions about their own bodies & lives is unacceptable. #FireKevin
Calling for the death and punishment of 25% of American women is unconscionable. Yet men like Kevin Williamson are given the benefit of the doubt, second chances, and national platforms time and time again.
