I think the author is a token conservative blogger. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Charlotte might be staying with out-of-town friends for a while, as her apartment probably will get firebombed for her saying logical things to the fudgepacker filthies.

I would not give the LA Slime credit for anything considering how much crap and lies they have promulgated and continue to promulgate.

That logic is like a Rabbi saying:

“Hitler loves strawberry ice cream and so do I. See, we agree.”

Well, kinda like that. Sorta close to that.
