These statements and campaign slogans of candidate Barack Obama in 2008 exemplified a basic difference between the Left and Right.
In the past week, two television reporters in Roanoke, Va. -- Alison Parker and Adam Ward -- were murdered by a black man who hated whites, and a white police officer in Houston -- Darren Goforth -- was murdered by a black man.
