Being lectured by Josh Hawley about what it means to be a man seemed absurd, but I listened to the whole twenty-six minutes. He seems interested in making the “attack on men” the next in a long line of grievances. During his talk, Hawley files many other grievances under the “attack on men” heading. A... Continue Reading →
CPAC 2021 Highlights
