Josh Hawley Is the Exact Sort Of Prick You’d Imagine Him to Be

Josh Hawley was the worst of the worst. He thought he was better than you, and he made it clear that he believed that he was more intelligent than all of his classmates, as well as his professors. Josh Hawley would scowl at anyone who dared to disagree with him in class or private conversation, and he would use any means necessary to belittle and bully them into submission or silence…

On Ideology

Josh Hawley, who is now Missouri’s Attorney General, attended Yale Law School in the late 1990s. According to Harvard University’s Crimson, at its most extreme, Mr. Hawley’s ideology could be summed up as ‘The less government the better.

He believed that university administrators should take care of administrative tasks while professors should teach and research. He claimed that he was a principled position, but given that he opposed financial aid for needy students while advocating tax cuts for wealthy heirs-yes you read that correctly-it might just be conservative extremism instead

. At any rate, this type of behavior shows why Mr. Hawley would have been an unpleasant person to deal with during his time at Yale Law School.

On Lying

For starters, what is lying? I suppose it’s a simpler question to Josh Hawley than one might think. Lying is deliberate, purposeful deceit. It can be a single instance of violating the trust and expectations of others with misinformation or misrepresentation.

Perhaps it’s only meant to help get you out of a difficult situation like Josh Hawley–or even just to make yourself feel better about something you did by telling others that someone else did it instead. What matters, though, is that the act was done intentionally and knowingly; as such, its success relies on the perpetrator being able to fool or deceive those they are lying to into believing what they say despite being aware it isn’t true.

There’s a long tradition of lying in politics and public service, but we don’t often use that phrase. We instead prefer to call such actions spin or manipulation. Certainly, that’s sometimes what they are, but they’re also just lying. And no one has done more to pioneer and master these dark arts than our current Attorney General of Missouri, Josh Hawley.

We first noticed him when he was running for Senate against Claire McCaskill.

On Bullying

Bullying is a major problem in the US, and it’s an insidious type of abuse. It’s a form of power and control, where the bully seeks to make themselves feel more powerful by making the victim feel powerless. On an even more disturbing level, bullies might also gain some pleasure from exerting their will over another person. For this reason, bullying can lead to major psychological trauma.

This video provides a first-hand account of what it is like for many kids who are targets of bullying. When people make derogatory comments about her body and mental health issues, she can’t go out to play with her friends because she has no energy left.

For kids who are bullied, their grades tend to slip, and for many teens and adults, depression or anxiety can result. It’s one thing when adults bully people online – that sort of abuse is largely ignored by larger groups. But it’s another thing entirely when kids bully each other in person. There is no place for bullying at any age.

On Belittling Human Suffering

Kicking off his career as a second-rate Giuliani, Mr. Hawley started by undermining the rights of victims of human suffering. As part of Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster’s office, he helped introduce legislation to limit all personal injury cases to $500,000 in damages – and fought tooth and nail for businesses accused of discrimination or any other wrong.

I have no doubt he had convictions about his beliefs at the time. But there is little question that Josh Hawley thought he was on the side of power – and wanted people to know it.

That, ultimately, is why Josh Hawley’s career in politics has been such a dismal failure. Just like he did at Yale Law School, Mr. Hawley believes he is on top – that any setback or offense to his sensibilities is a moral assault against him personally.

In reality, all it reveals is how easily offended and insecure he is – traits that are not just unbecoming in an American president but downright dangerous. Now we have to put up with President Hawley for at least four years of our lives – a thought that fills me with rage every time I think about it. To end on a positive note: So long as I’m still allowed to write professionally without ending up in jail, I’ll never stop attacking Mr. Attorney General.
