We missed this hot take from Crooked Media’s Brian Beutler earlier this week, but don’t worry: It’s still as disgusting today as it was when he originally shared it.
After National Review’s David French wrote a piece comparing the media and Left’s smear campaign against the Covington Catholic students with their smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh:
Last year, conservative wives looked at the furious attack on Kavanaugh and thought, "That could be my husband." Now conservative moms look at the wild attempt to destroy the Covington kids and think, "That could be my son." https://t.co/lSejEaGhO6

This was how Beutler chose to respond:
Do conservative women all marry abusive, lying men and raise children in that image? Or do they simply lack the empathy to see past their families to the people affected by their actions… https://t.co/mTW59hLSeK

This statement is highly offensive and ignorant.

Wow the hate and intolerance is strong with this one.

That is an awful thing to say. Who's the one lacking empathy here?
— Voorhee (@voorhee81) January 25, 2019
Who really lacks empathy in this scenario?
I’d say its pretty clear

Such a disgusting take says much more about Brian Beutler than it says about conservatives. Shame on him.
dunking on women to own the cons

Brian, good & bad come in all political beliefs. Unfortunately, you are painting a whole group with a broad brush. Its sad that people still do this. I am a conservative who teaches my son to judge on character not on ones political leanings. Maybe you should try that.
