She is easy to mock. Her pagan preaching on the campaign trail is highly unusual in American politics, and even probably uncomfortable for many political observers. Her proposal for a U.S. Department of Peace reads as if Williamson had just returned from a Peyote trip in the deserts of the American southwest.

While her stances on policy make Williamson as left as they come, endorsing a Green New Deal, a universal basic income, single-payer health care, and reparations for slavery, her message of love and unity is refreshing in a toxic political environment where discourse is becoming impossible around the dinner table with those who disagree.
