During a weekend of violence at some of Donald Trump's rallies, I received a flurry of angry emails, all playing the same game of "How would you feel?"
How would you feel, I was asked in one note, if a group of Ku Klux Klansmen broke up a Bernie Sanders rally?
That's a round-about way of referring to the violence that erupted at Trump rallies, particularly in Chicago, where the Republican frontrunner's rally was called off after crowds of protesters grew exceptionally large.
Early announcements that police had called off the event were withdrawn after police denied it. Some protest organizers insisted they were intent on making noise, not shutting down the event, although they joined the cheering after the event was shut down.
I could argue against false equivalencies here. You may disagree, but I don't see the potpourri of blacks, whites, Hispanics, Arab-Americans and others who gathered to peacefully protest as the moral equivalent of organized Klansmen.
