Question: In the history of our country, have those on the Left or on the Right threatened with more violence when policy hasn’t gone in their favor?

Answer: It’s a rhetorical question.

Those who consider themselves to be “normal” often say, “The far left is just as crazy as the far right.”

But the inarguable fact is this: Extremists on the Left, at their absolute worst, want the fortunate to help alleviate the suffering of the less fortunate. Extreme Righties however, threaten to kill you.

But fear not because it was once said, “Those who live by the sword will die by the sword.”

It was said over two-thousand years ago by a man who is professed to be loved, honored and worshiped by those on the Right.

Their transparent hypocrisy was once comical. Now it’s just pathetic.
