One of the unintentionally hilarious things I hear from right-wing ignorant bigots in the USA is that “they’re doing just the same on their side.” I assume this is a sound-bite these folk were handed by Fox News or some other moron-oriented outlet. The fact is, there is no equivalence whatsoever between people who condone evil and those trying to oppose it. The Republican Party would have us believe that the Nazi Party and the Jews who perished were “all the same” and that there were “good people among them” but it is not true. There is evil, which we see clearly every day from the Republicans, and there is an attempt to oppose it, which sadly we see all too little of.

There is no equivalence, even if low-IQ individuals have been told there is by some propaganda outlet that’s taken advantage of their gullibility.
