New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg made the mistake of admitting that along with the abhorrent, violent, white supremacists who terrorized Charlottesville over the weekend, many Antifa protesters were also enacting "hate-filled" violence, as they've done in several other cities in recent months. For noting that the "hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right" — citing "club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the park" — Stolberg was hammered online, even after repenting and issuing a correction that depicted the violent left in more heroic terms.

"A few wrap-it-up thoughts from Charlottesville: 1. Striking how many of the white nationalists were young people, almost entirely men," she wrote in a series of tweets Sunday. "2. The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the park[.] 3. Among my unanswered questions: police response. Why did things get out of hand so quickly? Could violence have been prevented?"

For pointing out that the "Antifa" were, once again, resorting to violence to "protest" and thus exhibiting "hate," Stolberg was immediately corrected online, one responder warning her, "Don't buy into the false equivalency like Trump and sympathizers. Only one group would commit genocide against the other if given power."

In response, Stolberg apologized and noted that she had made a "correction" about her "hate-filled" comment.

And here's the "correction" she was referring to: "Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate," she wrote, casting the left's violence in heroic terms.
