    "The Right" comes nowhere near matching frequency and intensity of "The Left" as shown by the five week camp-out in front of ICE in Portland, OR presented in the OPs here.
    As usual, the actions of some small fringe are the basis of your broad-brush of either side, though I note you rarely fault specifics of "the Left" and seem to largely focus on "the Right" and "Whites" mostly.
    What politician was threatened in the camp-out? You have a habit of injecting things that have nothing to do with what I was arguing against.

    Here's your source:

    I also rarely see you fault specifics of the right and seem to largely focus on the left and Muslims mostly.

                The American left has long been characterized by an ideological rigidity comparable to an orthodoxy: see the way leftist counterprotesters tend to fight amongst themselves to prove who hates the KKK more. The problem we're seeing nowadays is that the political right in this country is following the left's lead: see the repudiation of John McCain and Mitt Romney as "RINOs" in recent years. Apparently they're not conservative enough. Common sense conservatism is being displaced by a rigid, inflexible, doctrinaire, orthodox conservatism. Such will prove not only a loss to conservatism, but to the republic as a whole.

                    NYT Publisher Complains to Trump About ‘Potential’ Violence Against Journalists – Ignores Over 500 Violent Attacks on Trump Supporters
                    ...
                    There have been over 538 violent attacks against Trump supporters since the 2016 election season.
                    ...
                    The liberal mainstream media has ignored these violent attacks.
                    Instead, the liberal fake news media has fomented, encouraged and threatened, and harassed Trump supporters.

                      That leads to a good question, what does conservatism mean today? They claim to be in favor of small government, freedom, fiscal responsibility, etc. But their policy no longer reflects that, if it ever has and it's not just McCain or RINOs who aren't living up to those standards. The average conservative no longer supports those beliefs either.

                        Moonbats plagued by Trump
                        ...
                        Donald Trump is the greatest threat to human life since the Black Death.

                        As anyone who watches CNN or MSNBC knows, his policies have already murdered millions, er, billions, no make that trillions of people. It must be true, I saw it on Facebook.

                        Trump’s death toll is staggering. It’s one genocide after another — net neutrality, tax cuts, pulling out of the Paris “climate accords,” Brett Kavanaugh, the Muslim travel ban, ripping children from their mothers’ arms, etc., etc.

                        Who knew that full employment, a roaring economy and the destruction of ISIS could lead to the premature deaths of tens of millions of Democrats? But that’s what they’re saying on social — or should I say anti-social — media.

                        I just stumbled across a Twitter thread in which assorted moonbats are commiserating with one another over the assorted epidemics that have apparently devastated the non-working classes since Nov. 8, 2016.

                        It’s amazing there’s anyone even left alive to cash their trust-fund checks in places like Nantucket and Northampton, the plague is so pervasive.

                        Perhaps you'’ve heard of the “freshman 15” — the fact that kids going off to college often put on weight. Now I read that physicians have isolated a new outbreak of obesity.

                        A woman named Catherine tweeted, “My doctor said, ‘Oh, I see you'’ve gained the Trump 20.”

                        In other words, across the land, menopausal women in pink hats are having this conversation with their spouses: “Honey, does this president make my rear end look fat?”
                        ...
                        Cynthia B described a “former” doctor of hers to whom she went for new meds — namely, a more powerful antidepressant.

                        “He proceeded to tell me he ‘suffered’ through 8 yrs of Obama. I could get over Trump. Oh, and told me to read Breitbart!”

                        In these Internet asylums, the inmates have developed a certain shorthand. They used to call 45 “Trumpski,” because he was, like, you know, controlled by Putin. But as even their corrupt FBI agent hero Peter Strzok has had to admit of the hoax investigation, “There is no there there.”

                        They used to call St. Petersburg “God’s waiting room,” because everyone was on death’s doorstep. Now the internet is God’s waiting room. The end is near. Half of Hillary’s voters may soon be dead of strokes or heart attacks, if they don’t first overdose on their antidepressants or trash their livers guzzling chardonnay in the morning.

                        Is there any effective treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome?

                          I fear that you did not actually read those links, as they highlighted incidents of left-on-left conflict. I'd figured that examples of right-on-right conflict weren't needed for this congregation, as many here are regular consumers of Rush Limbaugh's and Bill O'Reilly's fare.

                            For one, I've used up my "free articles" from the NYT and am not about to pay for a subscription. I'll admit some "source bias", but my point holds, epecially when we have some posters here clearly displaying a lack of objectivity and obvious political (and racial) bias. In the other and similar title thread I just mentioned this, quote; ...

                            "A "small group" is hardly representative or indicative of the full spectrum of the political Right wing in this nation. With the Left wing largely associated with the Democrat Party and that having a narrow ideology that is mostly socialist, other than some token players of third party nature, most others seeking major Party association will come under the GOP umbrella. Hence one will find more diversity of political ideology and agenda among the Republicans, making RINO an often mis-applied label. CINO might be more accurate."
                            https://forums.armchairgeneral.com/f...09#post5051809

                            While there are many within the GOP whom would get no traction or support from the Democrat Party, not all within the GOP are "Conservative". One could say that while most Conservatives identify with the GOP/Republican Party, not all Republicans would be considered Conservatives.

                            As one of your links illustrates, not only does definition of "Liberal" vary a bit from USA compared to other nations, so too with regards to Conservative. One could check the "United States" section of this link;

                              Because now that liberals and most of the media have all gone Mad because Trump is President Therapists are saying that there is a increase in people seeing them because of Trump.

                                No, Sarah Jeong Shouldn’t Be Fired. Yes, Non-White People Can Be Racist. And Yes, The Left Is Filled With Hypocrites.

                                ...
                                On Thursday, brand new New York Times editorial board hire Sarah Jeong came under fire for three-year-old racist tweets. Here are just a few of them:
                                ...
                                Should she have been fired? Nope. We’re living in an age of social media mobbing, and it’s got to stop if we’re ever going to have any semblance of a social fabric left – or if we’re ever going to engage in conversation like normal people without fear of firing every minute. Private corporations obviously have a right to fire employees; there are indeed cases where the toxicity of a person’s current statements or the revelation of past statements about which an employer was ignorant endangers the status of the employer. But this is not one of those cases: The New York Times knew what it was getting when it hired Jeong, and firing her would only encourage the kind of behavior we saw with regard to Kevin Williamson and James Gunn, among others.

                                But were her comments racist? Of course. Treating white people as a discrete group for purposes of slandering them is textbook racism. Simply replacing every instance of “white” with “black” in her tweets demonstrates that.

                                But according to some on the Left, members of minority groups can’t be racist:
