"It is a sad, sad commentary on the state of political affairs that, after Donald Trump's answer to questions about violence at his campaign events, reasonable people in both parties had reason to be afraid."
"This was the actual employment of language and logic used to justify cross-burnings, lynchings and all manner of illegal, extra-judicial and inhumane behavior in U.S. history. This is what has been said to support attempted genocides, ethnic expulsions and some of the most shameful political acts around the globe. This is the actual route by which bigotry has, in the course of human history, become accepted practice and policy. This is the way that entire groups have been terrorized, demonized and oppressed."

The unmistakable frequency with which black and Latino protesters at Trump events are singled out for violent or at least certainly hands-on attacks and rally removals are Exhibits B-Z. Consider the evidence with care."

Okay, here is the story (embedded within its title) from The Washington Post you really should read:
