As long as we are talking about Both Siderism, this WaPo article almost destroys the Fourth Reich’s absurd claim that the Left is to blame for the violence that the Right commits (“You made me hit you!, as the wife-beater always claims), or that there are fine people on BOTH SIDES:
“While the data show a decades-long drop-off in violence by left-wing groups, violence by white supremacists and other far-right attackers has been on the rise since Barack Obama’s presidency — and has surged since President Trump took office…”
“…Of 263 incidents of domestic terrorism between 2010 and the end of 2017, a third — 92 — were committed by right-wing attackers.”
And then we get to the razor blade in the apple:
“[U]nlike the turbulent 1970s, when environmental, antiwar and other left-wing groups were responsible for historically high rates of terrorism in the United States, today’s attackers are far more likely to have right-wing sympathies.”
So, to get to some balance we have to mention out-of-context news from 50 years ago? Seems like a stretch, WaPo.
Being a Republican doesn’t make you a domestic terrorist; but, if you are a domestic terrorist, chances are good that you are a Republican.
