The False Equivalency of Trump’s Moral Equivalency

“Both Sides” are to blame? Wrong.

The notion that there is a moral equivalency between those who oppose diversity and those who embrace diversity is wrong.  Evil is evil. Period.

UPDATE:  A great article from the New York Times speaks to issue of Trump’s Moral Equivalency:

Waiting for a Perfect Protest?

Media outlets and commentators representing a range of political persuasions have called attention to recent outbreaks of violence in Berkeley, Calif., Boston and other locations where anti-racist and anti-fascist demonstrators have gathered. Intentionally or not, they have often promoted a false equivalency between groups that advocate white supremacy and those that seek to eliminate it.

Even mainstream media outlets that typically fact-check the president seem to have subtly bought into Mr. Trump’s “both sides” narrative regarding right- and left-wing extremism. They’ve run headlines that highlight small violent skirmishes while ignoring the thousands who marched and protested peacefully, to say nothing of the injustices that inspired the protests.
