Some people have such refined sensitivities that they tremble in
indignation when someone is called an Assadist, like it was an epithet rather than a political designation. They think it’s demonizing & bullying.

So how come they don’t tremble with the same indignation when Assadists refer to Syrian civilians in east Aleppo as “head-chopping, throat-cutting, organ-eating jihadist scum”? How come they’re liking that crap all over social media?

How can they express tender sympathies for Syrians in east Aleppo but cannot bring themselves to condemn Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians?

Some people fall for pathos & melodrama. Most people don’t like being played.
