In Friday’s episode of "The Michael Knowles Show," Michael ripped into left-wing Vox writer Matthew Yglesias for defending the violent protestors outside of Tucker Carlson’s house.

"I often recommend that people read Vox.com, that left-wing website, insane left-wing hack website, but it's good to read it to figure out what the left is thinking. I encourage people to go read that," Knowles said. "A writer at Vox.com, Matthew Yglesias, this is how he responded to this attack on Tucker Carlson's family. Quote: 'I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not, as a strategy is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA inspired violence feel thanks to the nonstop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.'"

He continued, "The victims. Tucker Carlson's victims. The victims of what? The victims of tweets? The victims of enforcing our laws? The victims of having a border at all? Is that what you're saying?"

Knowles also criticized Yglesias for saying that he had no sympathy for Carlson’s wife, who was trapped in their house as the mob tried to smash in the front door.

"Really, really sick stuff and he's defending it," Knowles explained. "So, don't ever let them tell you that there's a moral equivalence between the Left and the Right. Oh yeah, there's a Trump fan who sent a pipe bomb and there are left wingers who attack people's houses. It's all the same."

He added, "No. The entire Right condemned the pipe bomb homeless stripper. Donald Trump came out and said he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but when the left does it, they're encouraged by elected officials and by these news media outlets."

Knowles concluded by calling Yglesias’ rant "absurd" and condemning the "true moral idiocy from this guy."

I often recommend that people read Vox.com, that left-wing website, insane left-wing hack website, but it's good to read it to figure out what the left is thinking. I encourage people to go read that. A writer at Vox.com, Matthew Yglesias, this is how he responded to this attack on Tucker Carlson's family. Quote: I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not, as a strategy is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA inspired violence feel thanks to the nonstop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.

The victims. Tucker Carlson's victims. The victims of what? The victims of tweets? The victims of enforcing our laws? The victims of having a border at all? Is that what you're saying?

So, he's defending these thugs. This is a very prominent left-wing commentator at perhaps the most prominent left-wing online media outlet defending it. He then goes on because that wasn't enough to defend them. He says: I honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson's wife at all. I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldn't be done, but I'm utterly unable to identify with her plight on any level.

Right, because you're a child, because you're a little whiny child. I wonder what relationship you have to your family too, speaking of you, because you're lumping yourself in Matthew Iglesias, with all of these sick little children who are trying to commit violence against an innocent woman for the crime of being married to a television talk show host. Sick stuff. Really, really sick stuff and he's defending it. So, don't ever let them tell you that there's a moral equivalence between the left and the right. Oh yeah, there's a Trump fan who sent a pipe bomb and there are left wingers who attack people's houses. It's all the same.

No. The entire right condemned the pipe bomb homeless stripper. Donald Trump came out and said he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but when the left does it, they're encouraged by elected officials and by these news media outlets.

He goes on! Matthew Iglesias went on this crazy Twitter rant today, said: I met a woman who didn't leave the house for months because she was afraid of being picked up by ICE and never seeing her US citizen kids and husband again. What sense was there in terrorizing her family? She's in violation of the laws. She's a foreign national. We have laws for a reason. We have a border. We have to be able to decide who comes into the country, who doesn't come into the country. What he actually said is I met a criminal who didn't go out very much because she didn't want the cops to catch her for her crime.

Okay, yeah, it's too bad that she committed a crime. She shouldn't have done it, but we have to have a border because when you don't have a border, you incentivize horrible things like 60 to 80 percent of young women and girls who cross the border illegally being raped or sexually assaulted according to The Huffington Post infusion and Amnesty International. Like human traffickers bringing drugs and children across the border to do nefarious things with them. Like unvetted people. Like the fact that every other country on earth gets to determine who enters and who leaves the country. Mexico gets to. Guatemala gets to. Honduras gets to. Nicaragua gets to, but the United States not allowed to. Okay. Absurd. Absurd common and true moral idiocy from this guy.
