Most progressives don't incite violence to others in their rhetoric as opposed to most conservatives.
So while this statement isn't absolute it's somewhat true, the sad thing now is progressives are being driven into a corner by a push for a nasty stupid racist America as the way. Some feel this has to be stopped now as it can't be allowed to grow any more.
I'm sorry, but those anti-facist people resorting to violence can't be dismissed as self-righteous pretenders right now. There is a large number left of Trump Supporters who are ADMITTED Nazis and they ARE showing us it's their time and they think they can do it by force. There's gonna be riots soon because progressives are fighting back against people who have no use for sensible words and cooperation. The more protests, the more these assholes will push others too far. Again, the far righters don't want dialogue or co-operation, they've been convinced they can force their way on the wimpy little Liberals, many will be crying to mommy at the end as that wimpy liberal kick their fat ass.
I will not call this equal rhetoric and actions, that 'other side' shit has led to this fucked up regime in a once justifiably proud country. Get those assholes out and try to make sense again.
