The group @UltraViolet was among those who demanded that The Atlantic fire conservative writer Kevin Williamson. Now that The Atlantic has caved to that demand and fired Williamson, @UltraViolet released a statement:
THANK YOU to @NARAL, @JessicaValenti, @MMFA, @Rewire_News, @ameliabonow and our amazing UltraViolet members for staying loud and bringing all of Kevin Williamson's extremist views to light. You are amazing. #FireKevin pic.twitter.com/4MSQJNN88Q

The Atlantic has been getting plenty of clicks from Ta Nehisi Coates' hate speech and dehumanization of white people

Sure they will … they will be satisfied when all opposing viewpoints are silenced. The only issue that they haven't thought through, however, is who are they going to be able to blame when the can force their policies on everyone and they still don't work?
