Right-wing media rally behind Michael Knowles’ eliminationist anti-trans rhetoric

Daily Wire pundit Michael Knowles has spent the past week pushing eliminationist rhetoric about transgender people. It began on his show, where on February 27 he said “transgenderism” had to be “ban[ned] entirely” and continued the next day to deny that his comments could be taken as genocidal because “transgender people is not a real ontological category.” He then reiterated this stance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, saying “transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely.” Knowles’ fellow conservative pundits have since rallied behind his dangerous rhetoric. The Daily Wire has been on the defensive with Knowles’ stance, with its vice president of public relations joining his call for retractions at Huffington Post, The Daily Beast and Rolling Stone for headlines rightfully saying Knowles is calling for the eradication of trans people.
