“Arrangements are being made” for the son of a feminist writer who blackened his reputation in print to begin interning or working in some capacity with The Daily Wire, reports Independent Journal Review (IJR).
The son of Jody Allard — a feminist writer who hypes “rape culture” while describing her sons as misogynistic potential rapists — expressed interest in working with The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro via a statement to IJR:
I don't, necessarily, think there is a 'rape culture,' which I'm sure she's mentioned. I do, however, try to make sure I know where my decisions come from, and how they may impact other people.
My relationship with my mom is good, I respect her right to post her content and have her views. Thankfully she asks us before posting stuff like this to the internet, and has withheld articles we've request [sic] be so.
On his podcast, Shapiro read from Allard’s indictment of her two sons:
One of my sons was hurt by my words, although he’s never told me so. He doesn’t understand why I lumped him and his brother together in my essay. He sees himself as the "good" one, the one who is sensitive and thoughtful, and who listens instead of reacts. He doesn’t understand that even quiet misogyny is misogyny, and that not all sexists sound like Twitter trolls. He is angry at me now, although he won’t admit that either, and his anger led him to conservative websites and YouTube channels; places where he can surround himself with righteous indignation against feminists, and tell himself it’s ungrateful women like me who are the problem.
Then Shapiro offered Allard's son an internship:
If the son of [feminist blogger] Jody Allard is watching this right now, please write me an email. I would be happy to have you intern with us over at The Daily Wire. I think you deserve better than what your mother has provided to you: a label as a potential rapist. I don't think you're a rapist. I don't think you're a potential rapist. You seem like a nice person. Your mother, however, seems like she is a harridan.
After some more commentary about the lunacy of Allard's piece, Shapiro concluded:
Child Protective Services needs to show up like right now at this lady's door. Thank God it sounds like her sons are getting old enough that they get to leave home. LEAVE NOW, leave now. I will try to find a way to put you up in your own apartment, seriously.
Shapiro told IJR, “We're excited to take a look at his resume and see how he can help us! We'd love to help out a solid guy who's willing to buck his own mother's idiocy in favor of decency and logic.”
