Feminists and other progressives popularized the idea that we should never “blame the victim,” and Democrats made sure this idea became woven into the law of the land. For any good it has done, this mindset has also eroded personal responsibility and fueled an increase in false rape, abuse and hate crime accusations.
Of course, Democrats never intend for the rules they invent and enforce to apply to them. When the “victim” is one of their enemies, they never hesitate to “blame” them. Many leftists blamed America for 9/11 and now, on a smaller scale, they’re blaming Donald Trump for the riots outside his rallies.
