It is not intolerant nor is it racist to call violence what it is. Nor is there anything wrong with identifying threats to the Republic and addressing them as provided by law, consistent with Constitutional protections.
Laws might be ill-conceived, enforcement might be incompetent, but as long as equal protection under the law exists and the laws are enforced in the same way regardless of ethnicity or religious practice, racism is not present. Screaming “racism” when there is none becomes just an illegitimate tool for advancing social change through attempted intimidation.
That such an introduction is necessary is a measure of how polarized political discourse in America has become.
Our attention can now be focused on CAIR on page two.
