One of the left’s favorite shrieking points – like a chanting point, but delivered in an insistent, high-pitched, angry squeal – was that the right, especially the Tea Party, was/is involved in delivering an “avalanche of violence” upon their opponents.
But any sort of detailed investigation shows that, in fact, the prohibitive majority of political violence in this country is left-on-right.
One of my many small projects has been to create a page – an online museum, if you will – commemorating each act of left-on-right violence in recent years.
For purposes of this page, “violence” is defined as physical violence resulting in injury or death, and property damage at a felony level.
And I’m going to throw it open to you, the audience, as I give the Shot In The Dark “Climate of Hate” page its formal debut.
Please send me any examples of significant left-on-right political violence in the past decade. Remember – injuries and/or felony property damage. Links are appreciated – unlike the left, we on the right need to substantiate our accusations. I’ll give you credit (unless you disclaim it) in the museum.
