Confused by liberalism

Sullivan & Cromwell partner Francis Aquila deleted his Twitter account after he posted a response to presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in which he told her to “Rot in Hell You B!tch.”

The ABA Journal reports that the tweet was “a sarcastic response to the White House press secretary after she praised Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who had attacked Democrats motivations during a spirited defense of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.”

In an email to his firm colleagues, Aquila wrote: “Last evening, I responded to a tweet from Sarah Sanders in an inappropriate and hurtful manner. Clearly my emotions got the best of me, but equally clearly neither Ms. Sanders nor any woman should be subjected to such animus. I take full responsibility for my ‎actions and I sincerely apologize to Ms. Sanders.”

General Counsel News, 10/3/18.

No woman should be subjected to such animus? I’m confused. Is the implication that it’s OK to subject men to such animus? Isn’t it insulting to women to imply that men can handle it but women can’t?

Or did they usher in a new era of chivalry when I wasn’t looking?

  1. An astute observation, Agellius, all things being equal.

    Also, one might surmise that people who tell others to “rot in hell” may not themselves believe that such an infernal place exists, else they would fear being sent there on account of their extremely uncharitable intention.
