Vox co-founder “cannot empathize” with victims of Antifa terrorism

On Wednesday, October 7th members of the the violent antifa cell, Smash Racism DC, descended on the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. While covering their faces with black ski masks, these extremists chanted “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.” They allegedly rang his doorbell, broke his oak door and one of them was apparently caught on security video mentioning a pipe bomb.

This is the same antifa cell that in September confronted Senator Ted Cruz and his family and threatened them. They later issued a threat from their now deleted Twitter account in which they said they wanted to make sure Donald Trump,  Bret Kavanaugh, and other “right-wing scum” know that they “are not safe”. This tweet and their account was reported for violating Twitter’s TOS immediately after this happened but Twitter chose not to take any action against the account.

Many left-wing media personalities like CNN’s Brian Stelter repudiated this act of terrorism but Vox co-founder, Matthew Yglesias had a different perspective (archived version):

When someone asked Matthew for clarification, he doubled down stating that he can not empathize with Susie Carlson, Tucker’s wife.

Matthew, like many left-wing journalists and activist see political violence as justified so long as the recipients of that violence are believed to be “fascists”, “Nazi”, “bigot”, “racists”, etc. Unfortunately, members of the media and institutions like the SPLC and ADL play fast and loose with those terms, and it looks like their rhetoric has consequences.
