(LifeSiteNews) — On this week’s episode of The Van Maren Show, Jonathon’s guest is Denise McAllister, a former senior contributor for The Federalist who was “canceled” for her politically incorrect views on feminism and homosexuality.

McAllister recounts the story of how she got into hot water in the first place. In 2019, she joked on Twitter about interrupting her husband while he was watching sports, which led a cacophony of feminists and liberals to tell her she was in an “abusive” relationship.

One of those people was a gay liberal who’s friends with Meghan McCain, and after McAllister condemned the depravity of gay sex in an exchange with him, McCain’s husband and co-founder of The Federalist, Ben Domenech, told McAllister she needed to “separate herself” from the site.

The rest of the episode features a discussion on mainstream “conservatives” and why they’re embracing the gay agenda. McAllister believes their refusal to speak out against the gay agenda has helped normalize it.

“Conservative media is filled with [people] wanting to embrace the acceptance of the idea that they don’t want to be seen as not nice people. They don’t want to be seen as unloving and unkind. And any criticism of homosexuality today is cast in that frame,” McAllister says. “You’re a mean person, you’re an unkind person, and you need to be canceled and silenced if you’re critical. And they don’t want that. So they disassociate from anyone who has that very bold view of it.”

The Van Maren Showis hosted on numerous platforms, including Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, iTunes, and Google Play.
