Two wrongs do not make a right.

Promotion of a Moral Equivalence between THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT Mark Salter and many right wing commentators is misguided and hypocritical.

Two wrongs do not make a right. Thus not working on eliminating the hate and fear laden atmosphere rampant among Conservative Illuminati and their sheep like followers, because the left was behaving similarly in the past, is not every ethical.

More importantly Mr. Slater we are talking two completely different phenomena. We are talking race based hatred. I do not recall in last 30 years any left wing marches with a racist undertone. However, I do not recall seeing such incidents covered in the newspapers continuously for months on, and with no end in sight. Yes the anti-war protesters might have called Bush a Nazi, a Fascist etc. Surprise, surprise their was no racism involved in those protests.

President Carter, who is no arsonist like Rush/Beck/Hannity etc, has expressed his concern and deep anguish about this ugly phenomenon, in his very thoughtful statements. If GOP leaders and opinion makers on and off the hill stop making excuses for the perpetrators of ugly racism tinged behavior and denounced it strong terms (like did William Buckley) and show a united front with Democrats against this destruction of our National Character it may douse the fire of hate at least to a certain degree.

This will tell us the sincerity of their statements of concern regarding our Children and Grandchildren. I hope this concern is not confined just to the monetary aspect, but also encompasses the morality aspect, key factor being tolerance and love of your neighbour irrespective of their race, religion or political persuasion.
