There Is No Equivalency

Eric Cantor is a douchebag of epic proportions.

While criticizing Democrats who've been the targets of vandalism, assault and domestic terrorism claiming they are "dangerously fanning the flames by suggesting that these incidents be used as a political weapon," simply for acknowledging they happened, said douchebag politicized the bullet that was shot into his window. There's only one problem: the bullet wasn't shot into his window.

Richmond police say the bullet that hit a window of Republican Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor's office had been randomly fired skyward.
...In a news release, Richmond police said that the bullet had been fired into the air early Tuesday. It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor's campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.
So he criticizes Democrats for publicizing the acts of violence... while publicizing his own event, which turned out not to be a direct act upon his office.

There is no equivalency to this incident and shattering windows with rocks. There is no equivalency to this incident and being spat upon. There is no equivalency to this incident and deliberately cutting someone's gas line whose address you got from a right wing blog.

If Cantor gets death threats in his Virginia district because he's Jewish, it's a different matter than getting death threats because you voted to give more Americans access to health care. Those are two very different scenarios.

But douchebags wouldn't know that. Or won't acknowledge it.

Adding... Perhaps Eric Cantor should look into stricter gun laws that would prevent incidents like his accidental bullet through a window to occur. What do you think are the chances?

I find it interesting that when R's claim threats, they are debunked. Kind of like the backward B. And I don't know if you heard the voice recording of the man who called Rep. "I'm a birther" Schmidt but he sounded conveniently.... African-America. What are the chances that they would release a tap of a threatening black man? Very interesting.

I agree with anonymous that the birther Schmidt may have been a phony but it certainly doesn't rise to the threatening level of the recordings Stupak got.
now if she released a tape threatening her with sexual battery,then you woulda definitely known for sure it was a phony tape
