The burden is on both of you to prove you are not sympathetic with their ideology in your defense of it.

Seems odd that you don't even realize that allowing said local governments to deal with the issue on their own would have reflected some actual progress, and injecting the angry voices and violence of the SJW Left in an attempt to force the issue (and steal credit, where localities were quietly trying to change their public face) simply reframes the argument into an "us vs them" and "antifa fascist vs Trumpster fascist" shitfest.
