Egging touted as an example of left-wing political violence.

Right-wing political violence in the form of murder regularly touted as "lone-wolf actor" or mental illness.

Now that's a joke!

Yes egg in hair is a greater level of violence than two straight punches to the face and six Nazis choking you out.

But, I bet he still thinks it was worth it. ...No, I'm not advocating "political violence." Though, egging someone --as a way of showing one's disapproval of a political opinion (granted an opinion about a vicious mass murder) is something better to encourage than the alternative of using mass murder to make a point.

So much for "moral relativism," but what would you rather have happen to you? How should we respond to "political violence" if it includes egging? Of course, if the penalty is the same for all forms, then it won't stop it. Instead, offenders would feel that there's no point in half measures. Why not throw a shoe or a rock or a bullet. They're all the same. No? Well, I think it's dangerous to equate egging with assassination. Ymmv.

We live in a country with a binary political system, which doesn't leave much room for nuance. So even if you have a variety of viewpoints, you basically have to choose sides, which makes you look like a star-belly finch to all the godless plain belly's, even if you agree with them on 0-99% of topics (when you're a single-issue voter).

My views on a lot of issues adjust the more I discuss them with people who allow a reasonable space to figure things out. But I am reactionary when people tell me to, "STFU wayciss."
