It’s not quite a Berg’s Law, but it’s getting close; if violence breaks out between the left and the right, and the media claims not to know who started it? The left started it. And if they claim the right started it, without absolute dead to rights evidence? The left started it.
Maybe a corollary to Berg’s Seventh Law.

But as Joe Doakes noted the other day, the “Anti”-Fa had a demonstration permit – that they had to violate to attack the “White Supremacists”, who were apparently in their permitted area. Because that’s why they give out permits for demonstrations; to keep them apart.
So if “Anti”-Fa had a permit, they broke the rules to get to the “White Supremacists”. And if they didn’t, they broke the rules to get to the “White Supremacists”.
