I'm mainly concerned about the lack of empathy she exhibits. This article doesn't seem to be an honest reflection of her actions. I mean read this paragraph:
This woman’s emotions are genuine. We live in a dystopia in which our corporate overlords have a frightening amount of control over our thoughts and actions. In situations like these, we weaponize that dystopia against our enemies. So many of us are intimately acquainted with her fear. We know the twisting helplessness that overtakes us as we stare at a dwindling bank account and plot ways to further starve our anorexic lives. Yes, she believes awful things, but will this help her see the error of her ways? Or simply deepen the misery that led her to drink far-right poison in the first place?
Does this sound like someone who has ever had a genuine fear of where their next meal might be coming from? Seeing the "error of her ways" and "drinking far-right poison" shouldn't be part of the equation here. Yes, her husband fucked up royally. But Christ, she went out of her own way to buy a plane ticket to confront what is essentially an angry mob. I know this because me and other student journalists did the exact same thing in my city and we nearly got our asses kicked! And those were only drunk university students, not agitated political demonstrators. We never aired it because we thought it was unethical to show hundreds of possibly inebriated people without consent.
This is why legitimate news organizations exist, and why they clear these things. And let me tell you, the only reason me and my college buddies got up to that was because we clearly had way too much free time on our hands.
And when dumb people in a mob act dumb, she decides to air it for social media clout, bad things happen, and her base are mad this guy had a house.
Yeah my shtick isn't funny. But it's an exasperation because I understand these types of actions aren't helping. It's only going to further inflame the Right.
