Remember after Charlottesville, where a synagogue was stalked, many Jews felt an unfamiliar vulnerability, an actual physical insecurity. Don't worry, some said, these losers just march with torches & chant meaningless slogans. No one's going to actually attack a synagogue. Well.
Think of the validation offered by speaking of "good people on both sides". Think how it empowers people, whether unstable or evil, inclined to move from hate speech to violent action.
You can chart the slippery slope from Charlottesville to Pittsburgh.
