A while back, I commented on another Civil War history related blog about the left's history of violence. I believe the comments followed some discussion about the Tea Party movement. My comment upset one of the historians who posts there and he suggested it was actually the right which was to blame for most of the violence in modern America.
We witnessed numerous false allegations against Tea Party members last year and outrage expressed at some of their signs, comments, etc. How quickly the tables can turn. Funny, I'm not hearing the same outrage expressed by educators and those in academia over what's going on in Wisconsin. However, at least some in the media have now admitted "liberal bias" against the Tea Party movement. If we could just get some historians to do the same.
