And, as it turns out, I'm not alone. Leftists seem not to be good at expressing their opposition verbally, with reasoned arguments, and so they resort to threats of violence easily.
Still, I know actual wingnuts on the right capable of doing the same thing: but I, and other conservatives I know, criticize them for it, argue with them about it, and insist that they stop.
There seems to be no comparable dynamic to that on the left. I wonder why. Any suggestions?
