Describing Perkins’ statements as “unfortunate, albeit provocative”. The Wall Street Journal says:
While claiming to be outraged at the Nazi reference, the critics seem more incensed that Mr. Perkins dared to question the politics of economic class warfare. Maybe the critics are afraid that Mr. Perkins is onto something about the left’s political method. Consider the recent record of liberals in power. They’re the ones obsessed with the Koch brothers and other billionaires contributing to conservative causes, siccing journalists to trash them and federal agencies to shut them down.
Citing Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio’s comments that extreme conservatives have “no place in the state of New York” they add:
The liberals aren’t encouraging violence, but they are promoting personal vilification and the abuse of government power to punish political opponents.
