So I don't have to repeat myself throughout the article, I'll say things loudly and clearly at the outset.

The KKK, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis are evil. I deplore what they stand for and denounce it—as a follower of Jesus, as a Jew, as an American, and as a human being. I pray that they would repent and find mercy from God, and to the extent that the media exposes their lies, I applaud the media.

You see, the question is not, "Is Antifa as bad as the KKK? Are radical leftists as evil as neo-Nazis?"

Rather, the questions are, "Should the media highlight acts of hatred and violence when carried out by the left?" and "Should the media call out political leaders who do not denounce these acts?"

I'm not talking about Charlottesville here or making a moral comparison between the groups involved. I'm talking about a consistent pattern of dangerous words and deeds from the radical left, most of which get scant attention from the media.

Over the last 12 months, how many campuses have succumbed to pressure from white supremacists and cancelled a talk by a well-known liberal? Can't think of any?

Well, let's keep going. How many campuses have even received threats of harassment or disruption from white supremacists should they try to host such a talk? Still somewhere around zero?
