    Caitlin Flanagan on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar: “I think she’s an evil person. I really do.”

    Flanagan describes how Omar gives lip service to opposing female genital mutilation, while supporting it in practice. 

    The ladies also discuss how the entire feminist movement and the progressive left are AWOL on this issue.

    Loved some parts (Ilhan Omar, Valley of the Dolls) and didn’t like others. Not as bad as having to listen to Sally Quinn so there’s that. I would perhaps limit the interviews and maybe cut them back 10-15 minutes.

    OMG — Sally Quinn on witchcraft! I don’t think I’ve listened to the Femsplainers since then, until this one.

     No question 77 minutes is long for a podcast; under 30 minutes is better.

    Unfortunately, after a good beginning, Caitlin Flanagan really blots her copybook with her Koch brothers story. For example, she didn’t even know that the Kochs opposed Donald Trump in 2016!

    That they are working with Trump on his liberal (!) reforms of criminal justice should be something she approves of; but her prejudice against the Koch brothers is too strong. 

    Clearly she has swallowed the demonization of the Koch brothers, yet fails to recognize that, as a result of that demonization, they must get thousands of death threats every year.

    Thus the strict security that she so histrionically objects to. 

    She also fails to recognize that, to a libertarian, part of free speech is the right to decide to whom you will speak, and under what conditions of privacy.

    Not copying the whole comment, but it says everything I was thinking. How can they ignore the difference between private actors and government actors.
