Before we go any further: @lee_ritz isn’t the one making the false equivalence: she’s merely the one pointing it out.
A bulls-eye on Sarah Palin's website caused the Gifford shooting. Mobs chanting "death to cops" has nothing to do with dead cops. #2deadcops

I’m already seeing people – who, hopefully, are internally a little sick to their stomachs for having to make this argument – try the time-honored tradition of appealing to the very better nature of the Right that the Left routinely denies, every single day. Those people can do us all a favor, actually: they can frankly shut up and instead try to think about why they’ve placed themselves in this awful head-space right now. That’d be marvelous, thanks.
