False Equivalency of Blaming “Both Sides” August 17, 2017

In light of President Trump’s comments about “both sides” being to blame for the violence during the white supremacist, Nazi rally in Charlottesville, VA, this past weekend, Kevin M. Kruse, Princeton history professor and author of White Flight: Atlanta and the Making of Modern Conservatism, shared examples in his Twitter feed about the use of false equivalencies in history. These could be useful for teachers and students to study. Invite your students to find more examples in history and send them to us.
