Moral Equivalence

Noun

Maw-Rahl Eh-Kwih-Vah-Lense

The foolish belief that atrocities are wrong, even when committed by Democrats.

Poetically addressed by the Euston Manifesto in April, 2006 -

"We hold that things which are worse than other things are worse than those other things than which they are worse."

Such singling-out of Democrats' atrocities is inherently suspicious, most especially because Terrorists Are Bad.

Is is possible to have an English translation of the Euston Manifesto quote, or would that be fascism?

Well, it's more a paraphrasing, but I think it captures the spirit of the thing.
