THE LEFT HAS A FEEVAH, AND IT NEEDS MORE DOXXING: New York Times opinion piece by Kate Cronin-Furman, assistant professor of human rights, University College London, “Everyone Involved in Harming Migrant Kids Should Be Living in Shame:”

The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable. Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities.

This is not an argument for doxxing — it’s about exposure of their participation in atrocities to audiences whose opinion they care about. The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear. The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements. For those who won’t (or can’t) quit, it may induce them to treat the vulnerable individuals under their control more humanely. In Denmark during World War II, for instance, strong social pressure, including from the churches, contributed to the refusal of the country to comply with Nazi orders to deport its Jewish citizens.

In 2014, the Times published Officer Darren Wilson’s address at the height of the Ferguson riots. And since Trump’s election, CNN and sister network HBO have gone out of their way to be America’s hall monitors.

And then there’s actual violence done by the left: Bernie Bro James T. Hodgkinson, Attempted Assassin Of Steve Scalise, Already Being Erased From History. And additional examples of leftist violence and eliminationist rhetoric at the link.
