  • Trump's "Both Sides" Rhetoric: Liberals Beat Him to the Punch

    Kelly Hayes of Truthout: Some liberals have lent cover to violent white supremacists by taking aim at the tactics of activists who held their ground in the face of fascism.

  • When "Free Speech" Kills

    Every person who's ever misused arguments for free speech to defend Nazis or white supremacists  --  just so they could puff out their chests and apocryphally quote Voltaire with smug certitude  --  has some measure of Heather Heyer's blood on their hands.
