The examples abound of America’s lurch toward greater extremism on both the right and left. It’s getting to the point where free speech is being stifled by self-righteous word police on the left and screaming, armed lunatics on the far right.

Each side uses the other’s examples as justification for even more extreme behavior, as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis so aptly demonstrated with his derisive reference to Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying, “Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”

Ridiculous editorial. How is it possible to give equivalence between the "far left" whose goal is equality and freedom for all - especially during the current lurch to chip away at voting, women's and people of color's rights, and the "far right" that calls for violence, civil war, death threats, white supremacy, white nationalism, and Christo-authoritarianism?
