GfS, I am not putting myself on the same stage you and are referring to. I am talking about feelings and reactions. I am not putting anyone down.

What I left out is how often there was overt or covert support from local officialdom at that time.

At that time, I was one of the people on the receiving end. Even now, that can be a bit anxiety provoking. It did not keep me from working with people on both sides and it won't in the future. It certainly colors my thinking.

How many people of your acquaintance class you with "you damn liberals [and other, less polite names] who do X, Y or Z?"
