There’s no question that the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups are a hateful bunch with despicable ideologies. In modern times, however, the Left has perpetrated more physical harm and property damage in America than all the above hate-groups combined. The Left’s ideology of disrespecting, verbally abusing and often physically harming those who disagree with them is as evil and as vile as any other hate group.
What happened in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 is that the Left met its match; basically, evil met evil. President Trump was absolutely right in condemning both sides. To condemn both sides is not making light of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists — it’s making a point about how evil the Left has become. The Left’s attitude toward those who are not like them is exactly the same as that of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists. The only difference is the target of their hatred.
