Nuts on the Left, Nuts on the Right

As a follow-up to yesterday's post, this terrific column from Victor Davis Hanson explains how it's not volatile rhetoric, either from the left or the right (and there's plenty of it from both sides), but fringe, unhinged wackos that are almost exclusively responsible for political violence. To blame a political movement for actual violence is to minimize the fact that nutjobs are the real responsible parties. It is interesting to note, however, which party is more likely to excuse or justify, or indeed venerate (as in the case of Ayers) the crazies on their own side of the spectrum.
