Not only is the difference in the Liberals’ and Progressives’ blatantly obvious, their rationale and motives for that difference is very, very simple. In their minds America deserves to be attacked whereas France doesn’t.

To Liberals and Progressives the only enemy is White Christians and Jews. No attack against them is a crime; if perpetrated by a Non-White or Non-Christian upon a White Christian, they consider it just reprisal. Everything else beyond that is rooted in this ideology and is an attempt by the Liberals and Progressives to take punitive action against White Christians and Jews.
