Dan, ideologues tend to cherry pick the facts that reinforce their world view. People who really want to build mental maps of reality and sincerely wish to solve problems, rate facts on their own merit. Both the left and right in this country work hard to pick “facts” that reinforce their already chosen world view. I consider you an ideologue because you chose to cherry pick and characterize civil unrest “facts” that support your preexisting ideology — regardless of who and what motives incited the civil unrest — because those “facts” reinforce your worldview. Sorry, “facts” and facts are not the same thing, regardless of what Kellyanne Conway might have said.

I’m a US Army veteran of the Vietnam War, have a wonderful wife and family, am a working software engineer, and a committed citizen.
