The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 2

I read all of Nora Loreto’s first tweets that mixed her political opinion with her very mild condolences for the Humboldt Broncos. Nora’s Social Justice opinion in those tweets had overshadowed her condolence.

She said “…there’s really not much more to say” but chose to continue with: “I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role….”.

Her tweets read like backhanded compliments.

Also Number 4 would have been her laughing at the opposition. This opposition was the legitimate criticism (both civil and pointed) that Nora was tweeted:

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_2nd-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_3rd-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_4th-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_5th-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_6th-tweet

Yes, Nora was messaged anger. This anger included both threats, death threats and civil rebuke. Nora didn’t once tweet examples of the pointed (but civil) criticism that she got. She complained that Nazis and White Supremacists must have been tweeting her the criticism.

Thanks Nora, I’m neither.
