The US government has a double standard. One set of practices for repression of Black people and other people of color and Muslims and the political Left. Another set of practices that allows illegal acts by White Supremacists and members of the Patriot Movement. I am not calling for political repression against any of these groups. I am calling for reasonable enforcement of laws across the board and dealing with the existing double standard as based based on race, religion, and political leanings to the Left.
