Posted on 11/08/2018 3:50:09 PM PST by Morgana
In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he cannot empathize with Carlson or his family.
In response to liberal Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty denouncing the actions of the Antifa thugs via Twitter, Yglesias launched his offensive tweetstorm by proclaiming: I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy, is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.
Replying to strong push-back from even fellow liberals, Yglesias amazingly doubled down, even scolding people for expressing sympathy for the Carlson family: I agree that this is probably not tactically sound but if your instinct is to empathize with the fear of the Carlson family rather than with the fear of his victims then you should take a moment to reflect on why that is.
Moments later, he declared: I honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlsons wife at all I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldnt be done but I am utterly unable to identify with her plight on any level.
The Twitter tirade finally came to an end after one his online followers, George Mason University Economics Professor Bryan Caplan, advised him: Don't publicly speak when youre upset. Especially if you are well-aware that youve spoken rashly in the past. Yglesias agreed: This is good advice and Im gonna try to take it and stop tweeting for a bit.
If hes going to excuse and even rationalize dangerous harassment of those he disagrees with, perhaps Yglesias should stay off Twitter altogether.

What are the facts? Did the bang on the door or break the door? Did they vandalize the property?
What’s Matthew Yglesias address and phone number???
What is Vox?
Is it contagious?
I always think of cool sounding guitar amplifiers. Nice rich tube sound.
doesn’ t he have security??? His wife calling from a pantry to911??
What “non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc. is this person talking about?
How drugged up must the leftists be to believe that?
They kicked the door so hard it cracked.
All this makes a non swering person, want to use words not fit ...
I cannot understand how people can condone this kind of treatment... this kind of warped anger... this kind of hatred... this kind of destruction in their being...
They have lost their soul... sold it to the devil.. and I feel sorry for all the nuts out there who are following the wrong entity .. you will lose.. everything!
“Whats Matthew Yglesias address and phone number???”
I’m sure the “chans” already have that out there.
He needs the baby Harp seal cure...

It is amazing how the left is currently hallucinating a false reality that has nothing to do with what is happening in actual reality. The disturbing thing is that they seem to actually believe their made-up version of the world too in spite of reason and evidence. Of course even murderers come up with excuses for their crimes, so that’s nothing new, but I doubt most of them actually believe their excuses like the hate-crazed radical left seems to.
One thing that is real, though, is that the radical left is going forward with full-fledged Brownshirt-like, political intimidation and oppression tactics. Head of the Brownshirts Ernst Roehm (a homosexual socialist by the way) would have been proud of them.
Fort Marcy Park candidate...
A sub-par “news” agency with juvenile writing, filled with grammatical errors, that does not appear to allow any comments after its “articles.”
Tactics? As in.battle? For literally fighting those who disagree with you?
More like Polish breath mints
Vox is queer as the day is long, even its
sports blogs which are supposed to be fun
are lousy with lib politics
Another monopolized medium that needs to be split into atoms
