Liberal logic and tolerance

Remember all the liberals calling for more tolerant speech after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords? Apparently liberal talk show host Mike Malloy didn't get the message. He recently asked,

"So when does Seal Unit 6, or whatever it's called, drop in on George Bush? Bush was responsible for a lot more death, innocent death, than bin Laden."

First, it sounds like he's calling for the assassination of President Bush. Perhaps the Secret Service should give Malloy a call.

Second, Malloy's comparison of Bush with bin Laden is not only offensive, it is ignorant. Generally speaking, many (most? almost all?) Leftists have bought into some form of moral relativism. They apparently think that evil is just a relative matter. You know, the "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter," kind of nonsense, etc.

Leftist relativists have arbitrarily decided that all killing is evil. Since both bin Laden and George Bush are responsible for peoples' deaths, both are evil (or so the argument seems to go as far as I can figure it out. I've never been very good and figuring out Leftist logic).

With this kind of reasoning, it would seem that a police sniper who kills a murderer to save a life is just as evil as someone who kills an innocent child. After all, they both killed someone. Why else would a liberal like Malloy compare the man who gassed, starved, tortured and oppressed his own people, with the President who released those people from their oppressor and gave them the vote?
