Who's Encouraging Violence Again, Leftists?

Don't read below if you want to avoid being #Triggered.

Quick, I need CNN to instruct me that the leftwing media do not support antifa (in between explicitly supporting them on their opinion shows) and therefore are not responsible for their domestic terrorism.

Here's a meme going around, which I think is true: These NPCs don't have human empathy. They're developmentally disabled as far as empathy, like sociopaths.

Little children gain the power of empathy through imagination and experience. They know what it feels like to be physically hurt; it makes them cry.

For a period, they cannot imagine what it might feel like to someone else to be hurt, and they laugh at other's hurts; but eventually, the power of empathetic imagination develops, and they can see themselves in the other person being hurt, and they link it to their own memories of being hurt, and they feel empathy.

Empathy makes us human, obviously. The Voigt-Kampff test from Blade Runner could tell a robot from a human being based on the subject showing, or not showing, the physical signs of empathy for another living being.

These NPCs are very much like human-shaped robots. They're sociopaths. They're Replicants. They are incapable of seeing other people and wondering what terror feels like from their perspective.

And they're proud of it. Yglesias is bragging about being a sociopath here.

I can't "dehumanize" them. They dehumanize themselves, then openly brag about not being quite human.

The thing is, you can't teach him empathy. He's past the age when little children learn it. He's a sociopath for life.

Omelets, eggs.

But he's not a radical or terrorist sympathizer.

He's subsidized by General Electric!

Look at this Fatboy:

Meanwhile, the partisan propagana outlet Washington Post's "conservative" columnist Jen Rubin offers some perfunctory, insincere criticism of antifa, but then suggests that Sarah Sanders should be given the Chase Them Out of Restaurants treatment:

Note that Jen Rubin has previously defended SmashRacism and antifa's "protests" of people in restaurants: she declared Sarah Sanders deserved the "life sentence" of constant, round-the-clock harassment by violent antifa mobs.

I guess she's surprised that they took her support and decided to escalate it into "home invasion protests."

Who could have seen it coming, that encouraging and supporting a terrorist group could lead to escalation?

Update: Tough But Fair. This guy notes that the rightwing media is only now engaging seriously with the epidemic of antifa/leftwing violence now that one of their own is threatened.

Don't mistake me (or him); what happened to Tucker's wife and children is horrifying and must be dealt with in the firmest possible manner.

But this shit has been going on for a long time and I didn't see Megyn Kelly complaining too much when antifa was cracking skulls with bicycle locks.

Well... maybe this is overstated, at the moment. "Elite media righties" did cover and condemn mob behavior by the left. And who knows, maybe they won't really do much for Tucker beyond sending some Sternly Worded Tweets.

But a lot of the Cuck Right has been pretending the escalating violence of the left is no big deal because to admit otherwise would weaken their position that we should cede all political power to the left to protest Orange Man Bad.

Because the extreme left are their quasi-allies in this fight, and because they cannot admit our current political position is perilous and not the time to surrender to violent leftwing mobs, they have to pretend that it's no big deal if bands of antifa are beating the shit out of people in the street.

"There are fine people on both sides," our cucks bleat, to excuse their near-total acceptance of frequent and escalating leftwing violence, all justified by their fine fellow journalists at CNN.
