A first step towards genocide is to dehumanize the enemy, to deny their humanity:
A top lawyer for CBS said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night.
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network’s vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 500 others to hospitals…
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”
This is not some 18-year old Marxist Antifa SJW. This is a highly-paid lawyer working for a major media outlet.
In the years to come, language like this will continue to become more common (and indirectly normalized) on the Left.
