DaTechGuy's Laws of Media Outrage ANTIFA Election 2018/2020 Edition

the real­ity is those events are walk­ing talk­ing Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

The Grand Prize Win­ner of the Boston Com­mon Protest Pageant: Don­ald Trump 2020 Campaign

Ever since I cov­ered the Boston marches this month I’ve been explain­ing to any­one who will lis­ten that these marches in gen­eral and ANTIFA in par­tic­u­lar, while mak­ing left­ists in blue states feel good and self right­eous about them­selves, are going to coin votes for Don­ald Trump. I got an awful lot of push­back on twit­ter for say­ing that cel­e­bra­tions of sti­fling free speech, these chants and the vio­lence that came with them were polit­i­cally fool­ish. Tweets like this were typical

Accord­ingly like online left­ists the media pretty much ignored ANTIFA’s label­ing of all Trump sup­ports as Fas­cists and Nazis and even defended their vio­lence in accor­dance to the 1st law of Media out­rage which states:

The level of Out­rage or inter­est of the media and their allies on the left con­cern­ing any insult or pre­var­i­ca­tion con­cern­ing a per­son or thing will rou­tinely be equal to the inverse of the degree of the polit­i­cal dis­tance between said media /​left­ists and the tar­get of said insult or pre­var­i­ca­tion at the time it is mad

We lo and behold the day after we were treated to ANTIFA chants of “No Trump, No Wall, No USA at all” the blog­fa­ther is notic­ing the same thing I am

I’ve noticed a sud­den media pivot against Antifa in the last cou­ple of days, which I assume means that some­one has polled this stuff and it’s elec­toral poi­son for Democ­rats. Which should come as no sur­prise, unless you live in a Media Bubble.

And we’re see­ing stuff like this from Joe Scar­bor­ough Mika and the panel:

as had Head­line News:

Even Michael Moore has fig­ured it out:

The Ques­tion is, why the sud­den change? Well it’s all in accor­dance with DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Media Outrage

The level of accep­tance of the posi­tions and/​or actions of any group or orga­ni­za­tion by the left and media is directly pro­por­tional to their cur­rent or poten­tial value in elect­ing lib­eral Democrats.

One doesn’t have to be an expen­sive polit­i­cal con­sul­tant to know that visu­als of peo­ple in masks beat­ing reporters and their polit­i­cal foes com­bined with chants of “No Fas­cist USA” and “No USA at all” being linked to the sin­gle most vis­i­ble group of leftists/​Democrats is not going to help Demo­c­rat Sen­a­tors run­ning in blue states. That’s why the LA Times is doing all it can to seg­re­gate ANTIFA from the rest of the left, but as Dave Weigel put it this week:

And with that inabil­ity to thread the nee­dle the days of the MSM defend­ing ANTIFA have ended as the folks at Philadelin­quency explain

For those of you who love putting on black ban­danas it’s going to get inter­est­ing as most of your con­formist lib­eral friends grow from dis­agree­ment to dis­avow­ing polit­i­cal align­ment and then that may even con­tort into a clear divide and per­haps even sep­a­ra­tion and you two block­ing each other on social media. The lib­eral vot­ing mass will lis­ten to their “smart friend” who is try­ing to help out Sen­a­tor Casey or Save Claire! and feel less inclined to march with you. It may turn into com­plete ostra­ciza­tion at polit­i­cal ral­lies and events. Polit­i­cal expe­di­ency will demand this. It’s a polit­i­cal sin­gu­lar­ity that is a cer­tainty. You will not be able to escape it.

For those of you who are lib­eral and hold down a cor­po­rate job: as you’ve been more than wel­com­ing to extrem­ism these last few months your new-​found dis­cov­ery that extrem­ism is bad and unpro­duc­tive in pol­i­tics will force you into logic pret­zels you never thought pos­si­ble. You’ll cope by ignor­ing most of the shit you’ve said or done because there’s a ring on the merry-​go-​round that needs to be grabbed. You can’t have any of your more far-​left and green friends hold­ing you back.

How bad has it got­ten for ANTIFA? Even Wash­ing­ton Post Humorists are denounc­ing them:

Now, I am an unapolo­getic, unre­pen­tant, unre­con­structed lib­eral. But I have absolutely no doubts about this issue, for rea­sons moral, eth­i­cal, log­i­cal and, above all, tactical.

And believe me under that 2nd law of media out­rage those final three words will be the pri­mary dri­ver of all the media’s reac­tions from here on in.

Update: Now you really know the 2nd law is in play, even San Fran­cisco Nancy is com­ing out against Antifa.

the reality is those events are walking talking Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

The Grand Prize Winner of the Boston Common Protest Pageant: Donald Trump 2020 Campaign

Ever since I covered the Boston marches this month I’ve been explaining to anyone who will listen that these marches in general and ANTIFA in particular, while making leftists in blue states feel good and self righteous about themselves, are going to coin votes for Donald Trump.  I got an awful lot of pushback on twitter for saying that celebrations of stifling free speech, these chants and the violence that came with them were politically foolish.  Tweets like this were typical

Accordingly like online leftists the media pretty much ignored ANTIFA’s labeling of all Trump supports as Fascists and Nazis and even defended their violence in accordance to the 1st law of Media outrage which states:

The level of Outrage or interest of the media and their allies on the left concerning any insult or prevarication concerning a person or thing will routinely be equal to the inverse of the degree of the political distance between said media / leftists and the target of said insult or prevarication at the time it is mad

We lo and behold the day after we were treated to ANTIFA chants of “No Trump, No Wall, No USA at all” the blogfather is noticing the same thing I am

I’ve noticed a sudden media pivot against Antifa in the last couple of days, which I assume means that someone has polled this stuff and it’s electoral poison for Democrats. Which should come as no surprise, unless you live in a Media Bubble.

And we’re seeing stuff like this from Joe Scarborough Mika and the panel:

as had Headline News:

Even Michael Moore has figured it out:

The Question is, why the sudden change? Well it’s all in accordance with DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Media Outrage

The level of acceptance of the positions and/or actions of any group or organization by the left and media is directly proportional to their current or potential value in electing liberal Democrats.

One doesn’t have to be an expensive political consultant to know that visuals of people in masks beating reporters and their political foes combined with chants of “No Fascist USA” and “No USA at all” being linked to the single most visible group of leftists/Democrats is not going to help Democrat Senators running in blue states.  That’s why the LA Times is doing all it can to segregate ANTIFA from the rest of the left, but as Dave Weigel put it this week:

And with that inability to thread the needle the days of the MSM defending ANTIFA have ended as the folks at Philadelinquency explain

For those of you who love putting on black bandanas it’s going to get interesting as most of your conformist liberal friends grow from disagreement to disavowing political alignment and then that may even contort into a clear divide and perhaps even separation and you two blocking each other on social media. The liberal voting mass will listen to their “smart friend” who is trying to help out Senator Casey or Save Claire! and feel less inclined to march with you. It may turn into complete ostracization at political rallies and events. Political expediency will demand this. It’s a political singularity that is a certainty. You will not be able to escape it.

For those of you who are liberal and hold down a corporate job: as you’ve been more than welcoming to extremism these last few months your new-found discovery that extremism is bad and unproductive in politics will force you into logic pretzels you never thought possible. You’ll cope by ignoring most of the shit you’ve said or done because there’s a ring on the merry-go-round that needs to be grabbed. You can’t have any of your more far-left and green friends holding you back.

How bad has it gotten for ANTIFA? Even Washington Post Humorists are denouncing them:

Now, I am an unapologetic, unrepentant, unreconstructed liberal. But I have absolutely no doubts about this issue, for reasons moral, ethical, logical and, above all, tactical.

And believe me under that 2nd law of media outrage those final three words will be the primary driver of all the media’s reactions from here on in.

Update:  Now you really know the 2nd law is in play, even San Francisco Nancy is coming out against Antifa.
