A simple Google search would have saved Krystal Ball so much embarrassment.
Heck, a simple Twitter search even.
It all started here, with this horrific and repugnant column from Michael Hiltzik claiming it’s necessary to mock the COVID deaths of anti-vaxxers. Oh sure, he admits it’s ghoulish, but necessary.
And you know ol’ Mikey here thinks he’s the good guy.
Column: Mocking anti-vaxxers' deaths is ghoulish, yes — but necessary https://t.co/ge7NveMjVq

What a garbage person.
And Krystal was right to call him out HOWEVER, she really really really still managed to get it really really really wrong.
I want people to get vaccinated but will never accept that those who fail to do so deserve a death sentence. This is a disgraceful (and typically right wing!) viewpoint. Should smokers deaths of lung cancer be celebrated? Addicts who overdose? Sick stuff https://t.co/XodYcqgIqN

She was THIIIIIIS close.
Ma'am, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but, there is a LARGE amount of left-wing sentiment that matches what that hack wrote. That you are standing against that sentiment is noble, but you should have left politics out of it as "your team" is letting you down on this topic.

We’re not seeing any right-wingers mock the COVID deaths of anti-vaxxers. Now, we are seeing them mock people who have been absolutely horrendous to the unvaccinated, who are triple jabbed, and still caught COVID (looking at you, Geraldo), but mocking the death of people one disagrees with politically is a game of the Left.
Sorry, not sorry.

And you were SO close. But that clown makeup can be pesky to remove, can’t it? pic.twitter.com/YLD37IildF

Umm…you are either high or a troll. Only the left is calling for death sentences on unvaccinated…that makes it "typically LEFT-WING."
— Rank Badjin (@badjin_rank) January 11, 2022
Not just typically.
"…typically right wing…"
You realize his tweet and article are representative of some of the sickest sociopathy, and yet you casually suggest that's "Normally right-wing. Don't be right wing, guys!"
You should delete this tweet.
Elitist 'centrists' suck too.

Conservatives are now leftist liberal? Those are leftists.
Your version of reality is severely distorted.

Krystal you're lying. A quick google search shows this

A quick Twitter search shows this as well.
Show me a conservative that wishes death in people? You fraud. This is a uniquely lefty thing. 100%
— JC (@jcdav) January 11, 2022
Only the modern Left advocates death for those who disagree with them.

Can you please find instances of conservatives writing smug,hateful commentary such as this? I am unable to find any doing an initial search.

No, no she can’t.
"Typically right wing?" Get outta here with that nonsense. Leftist not only hope for but celebrate conservative deaths.
