Vox’s Matthew Ygelsias defends Antifa protesters’ attacking Tucker Carlson at home as ‘strategy’

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.

Yglesias’ unleashed a series of disturbing tweets as Yglesisas explained that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family.

“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.”

Yglesias 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.”

He continued: “I honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson’s wife at all — I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldn’t be done — but I am utterly unable to identify with her plight on any level.”

Yglesias initially responded to Slate writer Will Saletan, who had criticized the group’s actions by writing on Twitter, “One way to become the fascists is to think you can do anything in the name of anti-fascism.” Yglesias responded, “Another way is to get rich peddling white nationalist propaganda.”

Saletan warns him to not make Carlson “the victim,” Yglesias responded, “I didn’t break his door and I agree that he’s awful. You should write about it.” He added later that it’s significant to note Carlson is an “influential white nationalist propaganda broadcaster.”

At this publishing it appears that the Alt-leftist Yglesisas has taken down his Twitter page. Newsbusters has screenshots of the tweets HERE.

Roughly 20 people had gathered outside Carlson’s residence, trying to break the front door down and chanted “We know where you sleep at night.”
