    > Many of those defending the Panthers on this list seem to consider their
    violence and criminality, secondary, and even discountable because they
    profess ideals shared by the left. Some have even singled out the fact that
    they carried arms as a reason to support and celebrate them. Yet the same
    people I bet would be horrified to apply the same standards to the NRA and
    right-wing militias, who profess to defending liberty and other values
    progressives can relate to. Alex Cockburn has written about this
    contradiction in progessives' attitudes. I'd be interested to hear what
    people have to say about this.
