Here is more from Fox News (this happened back in January):
A contributing opinion writer for The New York Times was fired from his think tank job Thursday over a tweet that jokingly suggested former Vice President Mike Pence be lynched in order to unify the country.
Now-former Niskanen Center Vice President for Research Will Wilkinson raised eyebrows Wednesday night when he offered some tongue-in-cheek advice for President Biden following his inaugural address call for unity.
"If Biden really wanted unity, he'd lynch Mike Pence," Wilkinson tweeted. On Thursday, Wilkinson deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
The apology was not good enough for the Niskanen Center, which said in a statement that it "appreciates and encourages interesting and provocative online discourse."
"However, we draw the line at statements that are, or can in any way be interpreted as condoning or promoting violence. As such, the Niskanen Center has, with a heavy heart, parted ways with Will Wilkinson. We thank him for his valuable contributions to the organization and wish him success in his future endeavors."
Here is a piece from Reason entitled "Cancel Culture Comes for Will Wilkinson."
