SO I GUESS IT’S OKAY TO GO AFTER THE MEDIA IF TRUMP LOSES? Ayanna Pressley Calls for ‘Unrest In the Streets.’
I’m not saying it would be right to burn down CNN and MSNBC and the WaPo/NYT headquarters. I’m just saying that the left would be in a poor position to complain if someone did it, due to their toleration of this sort of inflammatory rhetoric from their own. When you say this sort of thing you’re moving the Overton Window for your opponents, not just for your friends. But since double standards come as naturally to them as breathing, that probably doesn’t even occur to them.
