What do you mean backtracking?
I am saying that the left cannot allow that this is not a pure good v. evil fight. I have never said there aren't decent people on the left, but they aren't going to be the ones in the streets doing this.
If you say there are bad people on both sides though, it is easier for the left to accept. It feeds their "evil right". They could not go with Trump saying good people on both sides because that would mean allowing there are decent people on the right somewhere which goes against the "evil right" paradigm.
You think everyone out there sees this as pure Hegelian dialect? You'd be wrong.
When you take a leftist position, I argue against you for taking the leftist position. I could give an eff-all how you see yourself. If you argue for a position I am more allied then, then odds are, I'm not arguing against your position. It's that simple. I don't say, "Oh, there's dasksakik, the dirty leftist. I can't be on daskakik's side."
