More B.S. about how Democrats & Repigs "both behave badly. . ."

I spotted two extremely obnoxious points in the NYT today (of course there are many more, but I'm only talking about these 2). .. .

The first one was in an article about "Trump's Heated Words Destined to Stir Violence" (I will try to get a link). . . This PISSED me off more than I can express.
Richard Daley, son of former Chicago Democratic Mayor, said: "Both sides are fueling this. . ."

The next article involved Trump supporters attacking protesters at a rally on the outskirts of New Orleans:
"Yet the protesters, too, have sometimes instigated the clashes. They fling themselves to the ground, forcing law enforcement officers — often outmanned and overwhelmed — to drag them away. They also shout and curse, making obscene gestures as they are led from events. And Friday night in Chicago, in perhaps the best-organized effort so far, they came not to simply stand quietly but to utterly halt Mr. Trump’s ability to deliver his speech."

Wow--the protesters flung themselves to the ground, shouted and cursed and made obscene gestures, and THIS, THIS THIS was enough for these assholes to condone VIOLENCE against them????
