This is the logical conclusion of the "words are violence, but actual violence isn't violence" mindset that the mainstream media has happily participated in for the last five years.

Just because most people who spend all day on Twitter and Tumblr never leave their house doesn't mean people who speak out against the status quo aren't in danger. It only takes one person who feels emboldened by their bullsh*t. I'd like to imagine this will change their behavior, but it won't.

Its also the result of the blatant double standard the media has. For example, the media would downplay BLM & ANTIFA riots where whole cities were engulfed in chaos and/or fire. Meanwhile, people peacefully protesting the COVID lockdowns because their businesses were going under were treated like terrorists.

They pushed the idea that having certain political ideals means that anything you do is justified if you feel wronged somehow. And then they act surprised when tragedies like this happen
