I blame the violence in South Carolina on BOTH sides

Clearly the violence in South Carolina could not exist if both sides had not gone there looking for a fight.  

If the most radical White Supremacists shouted Nazi slogans, and ugly racist slurs as they marched down the street the only headlines we'd have seen would have been how stupid they made themselves look.  I rather doubt that news would improve their recruiting among their most likely prospects.

 

Instead a large number of equally stupid people went there to violently confront them and not surprisingly provided the news-media with exactly what they pray for, fights, violence and even enough death to perk up their otherwise dull network ratings.

 

Oh now the show is glorious, the news-media ratings have improved and people on both sides are inspired.  Congratulations, by taking up arms and portraying imagery that inspires even more nutcases to want to become part of the fray, we've done more to help both sides recruit people with violent tendencies and give us the show we deserve.

Thank you for the balanced approach. That is sorely lacking today.
