My question was which you sidestepped...there are many examples they could target.
Why this one and not many of the others? Some of which are BIGGER.
a blast from the past...
So yes they cant go after everything...but the question is why Brunei for example but not Saudi Arabia?
P.S. In response to your defense of virtue signaling...
"Psychological studies reveal that a person’s authentically experienced outrage is inherently interwoven with subconscious concerns about her reputation. In other words, even genuine outrage can be strategic."
All this really does is call into question even genuine outrage. That doesn't make it any better that "virtue signaling" has taken place. If anything it makes a larger percentage of anyone "outraged" more selfish.
Also...that study could be questioned...maybe those that were not given the money were outraged not because they didn't get the chance to virtue signal...maybe they were upset that they weren't given the chance to have some money to give...or mad they didn't get money for their time. The "test results" could simply be a projection of the testers.
