Every time someone uses violence against individuals to make a political statement, it is wrong. When the Left does it, however, all is quickly forgiven and inevitably blamed on the Right.
Michelle Malkin has put together an encyclopedic list of violent hate crimes and hate speech performed by leftists, many of which were ignored by our intrepid media outlets, and the rest of which were blamed on the Right.
As Screwtape advised young Wormwood:
Your patient must demand that all his own utterances are to be taken at their face value and judged simply on the actual words, while at the same time judging all [others’] utterances with the fullest and most oversensitive interpretation of the tone and context of the suspected intention.
Yeah, the Right has had its whackjobs. I’m not denying that. But the next time your leftist friends, family, and co-workers try to pin all violent political acts on the Right, send them this list and remind them where the majority of violence and hatred is truly coming from.
