Force and Violence: How the Left Blurs Terms

My latest editorial is available on Pajamas Media. Here's how it begins:
In a recent New York Times column, Frank Rich attacked and smeared the nascent tea party movement. While most of his diatribe received the fiskings it deserved, one significant fallacy went unchallenged. Perhaps it was overlooked because the left has committed it for so long now that it seems unquestionable. All the more reason to bring it to light.

The fallacy is the equation of violence with force. The error and its consequences are manifest in what the left condemns and condones.
Read the whole thing.

Please feel free to stop by and leave comments, the more interest a column gets, the more likely the editors are to accept future submissions.

Update: I've replied to a few comments, my responses may be of interest to some of you.
