Matt Yglesias: If only it was divine retribution

Matt Ygle­sias seems to be unclear on the con­cept of dam­age con­trol when a col­league has said some­thing really offensive:

Indeed, pre­cisely the crux of our prob­lem is that cli­mate chaos isn’t divine ret­ri­bu­tion for pollution.

So rather than sug­gest­ing that is the divine curse of Gaia that those GOP vot­ing areas are sub­ject to dev­as­ta­tion, Ygle­sias mere bemoans the fact that it is not…

…and although he does give space to hit my friend Tabitha Hale he still doesn’t has space for a char­ity link or two Here are some quick giv­ing options in case you think differently

* Red Cross, or text RED­CROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to relief efforts
* Catholic Char­i­ties
* Samaritan’s Purse
* Text “Give” to 80888 to give $10 to Sal­va­tion Army relief efforts.

Per­son­ally I’m much more offended by Ygle­sias’ piece than Johnson’s. There is the pos­si­bil­ity, how­ever slight, that Johnson’s piece was typed up in haste and posted intem­per­ately. We’ve all hit the “post” but­ton on occa­sion when we shouldn’t. There is no chance in Ygle­sias case. He saw Johnson’s piece, and the reac­tion, and then wrote what he wrote.

What­ever Soros is pay­ing these guys it’s too much.

Update: John­son dou­bles down but this time includes a dona­tion link. I guess that’s progress.

Personally I’m much more offended by Yglesias’ piece than Johnson’s. There is the possibility, however slight, that Johnson’s piece was typed up in haste and posted intemperately. We’ve all hit the “post” button on occasion when we shouldn’t. There is no chance in Yglesias case. He saw Johnson’s piece, and the reaction, and then wrote what he wrote.

Whatever Soros is paying these guys it’s too much.

Update: Johnson doubles down but this time includes a donation link. I guess that’s progress.
