There Is No Equivalence

Violence occurred on both sides in Charlottesville, so our Pr*sident says. Therefore, in his view, both sides bear guilt for what happened.

My response is carefully considered and goes as follows:
Violence against the alt right can never go too far. These are advocates of an ideology that brought us Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Dachau.
As our fathers and grandfathers before us found, violence is necessary when confronted by this distillation of all that is hateful. It is necessary because it is self-defense. It is not merely defense of self; it is action in defense of all humanity.
