Red State's Erickson: “It is and has always been the left” who resorts to violence

From Erickson's March 7 blog post:

At least since the 19th century, it has been the left employing murder and death as a political weapon. From Hitler to Mao to Lenin to Stalin to Chavez to Castro to Guevera to Arafat to Pol Pot to Mugabe to [insert your favorite American union] to Margaret Sanger the left and its heroes have used death, violence, and murder to advance their agenda.

For every Pinochet or Netanyahu the left grasps for, the list is three times as long on the left.

It is inconvenient. The left will try to laugh it off or attack the person pointing out, but the truth remains.

It is not conservatives burning down homes in Washington State with the ELF. It is not conservatives throwing blood on women wearing fur. It is not conservatives burning down the Texas Governor's Mansion during riots. It is not conservatives rioting during G-8 summits.

It is and has always been the left. Deal with it.
