Its a cool day for this country for numerous rationales, writes Jessica Valenti in this publication of The Week in Patriarchy
As I write this, the internet is aflame with onrushes on Jemele Hill- a reporter at ESPN who dared to call the president what he is: a prejudiced and a white supremacist. In response, an incredible amount of hate and harassment has been guided at Hill, and the White House has called for her firing.( Where are those conservative’ free speech’ absolutists when you need them ?)
It’s a cool day for this country for many reasonableness. But when the governmental forces attempts to strangled the lecture of a private citizen and correspondent because she criticized the president … this is a new grade of horror.

It’s only those who anger Trump who are in danger of being reprimanded. Thankfully, other columnists and both citizens and to access to Hill’s defense- but it’s an important lesson for us all to remember. And it’s a warning that things can get often, much worse.
