David Webb on Political Incivility: 'One Side Is More Guilty Than the Other'
Conservative radio host David Webb debated former Clinton aide Mo Elleithee over the continued incivility in politics.
Webb said he has covered riots, protests and other demonstrations for decades and continues to see the left as more guilty than the right.
He said a "large amount" of the recent vandalism and violence has come from leftist protests like Occupy Wall Street, the Ferguson riots, and the millions of dollars demonstrators caused in damages at the Wisconsin State House in Madison.

Webb said recent confrontations involving White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, EPA chief Scott Pruitt and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen amount to "harassment and bullying."
Trace Gallagher also reported that vandals hurled bricks, shattering a plate glass window at the Nebraska Republican Party's headquarters, and scrawled "Abolish ICE" in spray paint outside the office.

Elleithee said he does not condone violence like that seen at the Lincoln, Neb. building, but that people "further tribalize" the two sides by tossing about blame.
"Members of Congress on both sides are harassed," Elleithee said, adding that no one side is more guilty than the other, adding that a "vast majority" of Democrats "push back" on harassment.
"One side is more guilty than the other," Webb responded in disagreement.
Webb said that Elleithee is correct but pointed to the example of "attempted assassination" of Republican congressmen at a Virginia baseball game "by a leftist Bernie Sanders supporter," referring to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.
Both men agreed that the political rhetoric should be toned down overall.
