Much of this, “they are both at fault,” nonsense with non Republicans is caused by these nuts that think it is their duty to physically confront the bad guys, which of course is the whole point of the KKK and White supremacist demonstrations in the first place. A picture is worth a thousand words. So if you are really against the bad guys don’t go chasing after them to battle them — bad optics. There are much better ways to counter hate groups.
