Thread Below the Saturday Gardening Thread: April 16, 2016 [Y-not]

Haters gonna hate:

Talk show host Montel Williams is bullying one of North Carolina\'s Republican congressional candidates because she supports the state's bathroom law that ensures women's safety and privacy.

Kay Daly is a lifelong conservative activist who is running against 21 other candidates to fill NC-13's open seat. Her support of House Bill 2, which requires people to use public restrooms that match their biological sex and not their gender perception, has made her a target of the talk show host, who has called her""a horrid woman."

Speaking of the death of civility, conservative columnist Mary Katharine Ham has been targeted by online trolls recently:

This past week, she published an article entitled "Ivanka Trump Is Everything Donald Wants To Be But Is Not," which received a fair amount of criticism. But some of the critics, rather than attacking the article, went after Ham personally...

@mkhammer I felt sorry for you when your husband died while you were pregnant, but no more, he is better off not being with u ur nasty

--Bettie Harvey (@Bettieh) April 7, 2016

This is the article that triggered the release of so much venom. Throughout the article Ham praises one of Donald Trump's daughters, pointing out the positive qualities she possesses that, in Ham's opinion, Mr. Trump lacks.

It doesn't strike me as a good reason to direct so much hatred at MKH. YMMV.

Open thread for non-gardening talk.
