The parents of the tire-slashing fire-setters are the apologists for the Democrats. They complain about Republicans' behavior and preach about "returning to civility." Then when their own commit outrages beyond what anybody thought imaginable, they say, "Well, both sides are guilty."
No, they're not. One side is clearly the aggressor in the culture war. One side clearly has no sense of boundaries, no line beyond which they will not advance, no depth below which they will not sink. This is not politics, this is evil. And I've had it with the false equivalence that always excuses the inexcusable.
