Here is an excellent example of the "both sides do it" fallacy.

Trump and the Republicans have officially no platform. No proposed solutions for what to do to make America great again (needed now more that four years ago, that's for sure).

Take a look at Biden's website and platform - there are so many explicit proposals for fixing America's problems that I couldn't read them all. And none of them involve villifying, or doing anything nasty to "the other side".

"Both sidesism" is an anti-intellectual trope that Rightwingers employ for some reason. Hmm

Not attempting to counter, I'm supporting.


Let's have a fuller picture -

Japanese Internment camps WWII

German and Italian Interment Camps WWI and WWII -

Let us not forget our brothers to the north

We supposedly "Free" societies and Democratic Governments have a history...

Just one example of "what about-ism", that favorite of Russian trolls trying to manipulate the voters.
