Fox promotes the violent left

Fox news has been pushing quite a bit on ‘left bad, right good’ following the shooting of Republican House Whip Steve Scalise by a Bernie Sanders supporter.

This is all on their current twitter feed:

That’s toned down?

They do have the occasional attempt on balance and conciliation:

But the division goes on. just tweeted:

Levels of rhetoric, division and violence look likely to continue unabated, despite what should have been a wake up call for politicians on both sides of the chasm.

    the truth about the wealthy…

    ‘Seven studies using experimental and naturalistic methods reveal that upper-class individuals behave more unethically than lower-class individuals. In studies 1 and 2, upper-class individuals were more likely to break the law while driving, relative to lower-class individuals. In follow-up laboratory studies, upper-class individuals were more likely to exhibit unethical decision-making tendencies (study 3), take valued goods from others (study 4), lie in a negotiation (study 5), cheat to increase their chances of winning a prize (study 6), and endorse unethical behavior at work (study 7) than were lower-class individuals. Mediator and moderator data demonstrated that upper-class individuals’ unethical tendencies are accounted for, in part, by their more favorable attitudes toward greed. ‘

      … undoubtedly from the Journal of Irreproducible Results.

      I’m definitely not upper-class but I certainly ignore stupid bureaucrat-made nitpicking law sensibly when I am driving. So I’m wondering how all these studies defined class and sampled once they had defined it.

      What are you getting at here Blaze?

      There are upper class lefties (chardonnay socialists) aplenty. So called “Class” is not necessarily a political indicator.

      Not sure how relevant the posted study is to the increasing prevalence of violence on the left to stifle free speech and protest things that they do not agree with.

      The definition of “left and right” in the states is not really comparable in NZ either. Trump is to the left of many if not most Democrats, but would still be considered a Rightie in NZ.

        defining left and right …is not an exact science, but usually upper class equates with wealth.There have been many studies showing the sense of entitlement the upper class have and their lack of…empathy for the …’chattering classes’.Anyone for…foxhunting this weekend?

          And behavioral differences are not as easily categorised as the study you posted would suggest:

          In a 2009 study Haidt and two of his colleagues presented more than 8,000 people with a series of hypothetical actions. Among them: kick a dog in the head; discard a box of ballots to help your candidate win; publicly bet against a favorite sports team; curse your parents to their faces; and receive a blood transfusion from a child molester. Participants had to say whether they would do these deeds for money and, if so, for how much—$10? $1,000? $100,000? More? Liberals were reluctant to harm a living thing or act unfairly, even for $1 million, but they were willing to betray group loyalty, disrespect authority or do something disgusting, such as eating their own dog after it dies, for cash. Conservatives said they were less willing to compromise on any of the moral categories.

          Haidt has a message for both sides. He wants the left to acknowledge that the right’s emphasis on laws, institutions, customs and religion is valuable. Conservatives recognize that democracy is a huge achievement and that maintaining the social order requires imposing constraints on people. Liberal values, on the other hand, also serve important roles: ensuring that the rights of weaker members of society are respected; limiting the harmful effects, such as pollution, that corporations sometimes pass on to others; and fostering innovation by supporting diverse ideas and ways of life.

          Putting the obscenely wealthy to one side if I may, those of us who have toiled all our lives in the mistaken belief the state doesn’t owe us a lifestyle. And have combined brains with a work ethic …will generally move towards the conservative end. You will find most right thinking folks from humble beginnings retain a degree of empathy for kiwi battlers less fortunate than them … while having zero sympathy for bludgers and deadbeats

              I believe we are equipped to judge our fellow man blazer, although not all folks choose to indulge. Indeed there is a well known verse in the good book that permits the practice …provided it is not done in a hypocritical way…

              Actually, come to think of it, you’d probably have to do it in hypercritical way?

              Yep – it’s very easy to paint the ‘other side’ as evil, or less worthy, but the fact is all walks of life have their angels and their assholes.
              People generally have the right motives and want similar things – we just tend to argue around the best way to get there.
              But where’s the blog sport in that?
