    Why does the media want Donald Trump to accept some kind of responsibility for the Alt-Right and neo-Nazis, when they didn't pressure Barack Obama to denounce Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, and the Occupy Wall Street movement?

    I don't hear the media or congressional leaders from BOTH parties calling for Trump to take responsibility. They are calling for him to give a clear and direct condemnation of the hate groups that instigated the violence. Why he tiptoes around this in contrast to how he handles other situations is pretty mind blowing

    That's what I meant: "condemnation". Not so much accepting responsibility, but condemning them.

    I never heard Obama or any member of Congress condemn BLM or the Occupy Movement. Pelosi and Hillary actually had good things to say about them.

    I don't need to deflect anything. I never blamed Donald Trump for alt-right attacks. I'm not responsible for media bias, and what I said is true. It's hypocritical when either side accuses the other of partisan hackery. When people talk about it I just want to say "Yeah? Duh. Where have you been? This is American politics."

    Are you really asking a liberal to be fair minded?

    Even legal scholars on the left voiced concerns about the tolerance and even support of lawlessness by Democrats. The rule of law only works if people choose to obey the law, when leaders in government choose not to obey the law, and encourage others to break the law, a lawless society is not far off.
