If a Trump supporter had shot Democratic congressmen...

In other words, Republicans reacted with complete conciliation, whereas if a right-winger had attempted to murder Democrats, the Democrats and their media would have gone ballistic against the right.

Now, why is that?

One reason is that Republicans have accepted the narrative following the shootings that there is some sort of moral equivalence between right-wing and left-wing hate. That they have taken this path reinforces my belief that the great majority of Republicans and conservatives – whether in politics or in the media – do not appreciate how rotten the Left is (the Left, not traditional liberals). Many really believe that calls for “harmony” and “unity” with Democrats and the left are meaningful.

But the only reason Democrats talked about harmony for a few days after the shootings was that one of theirs did the shooting.
