There was a time when I loved to read Science Fiction. Back then, Science Fiction authors were smart people.
Tor Books blogger and the author of Magic for Liars and the American Hippo Sarah Gailey called for violence and murder following the attack on reporter Andy Ngo by members of Antifa.
Gailey in a number of now-deleted tweets called for not only violence against those opposing Antifa, but also called for murder.
Here is one of those tweets:
I’ll take things that never happened for $200, Alex. At least not in America. I think I would remember something like that from when I studied the history of unions. But just in case I went ahead and googled it but I could not find any mention of any such occurrence.
But let’s assume for the sake of argument that it did. Even if the perpetrators managed to escape justice the factory would have closed down and all the factory workers would be out of jobs. Not exactly an optimal solution for the workers.
Gailey’s tweet is ironic when you consider that she is a supporter of open borders. In the old days, a common method of breaking strikes was to bring in immigrant workers to replace the strikers. These immigrant workers were called “scabs” and they were often the targets of violence by the strikers.
You can’t learn from history if you keep erasing it.
