Online comment sections can be cesspools, whether Left or Right. But on Thursday, Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers exposed the demeaning War on Women that’s coming from the self-appointed civility cops at left-wing Media Matters.
While defending President Obama and Planned Parenthood against Fox News’ “smears,” MMFA commenters spewed their typical foul-mouthed venom at Powers, Monica Crowley and Megyn Kelly, calling them “despicable whores” and other oh-so-enlightened slurs.
How’s this for tolerance?
Powers didn’t have to sift because revolting misogyny accompanies nearly every Media Matters post about women who don’t toe the progressive line. Refuse to walk in lockstep with the Left? The answer is always weaponized misogyny.
