So on the one hand we have a "political figure" saying something about physical violence against republicans..... in the renowned Eric Holder.....then all the sudden it was  just hyperbole....

But when Trump does something similar......  well THATS DIFFERENT

Of course it is different... Democrat good, Republican bad... The MSM would want it no other way...

The big difference is that one is a figure of speech and the other is cheering on an actual act of violence.
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

That is your interpretation, and I might be inclined to agree, but I really do not tilt one way or the other ( i do not really care for either side/person) and as such i see that they are not starkly different.

Exactly.  Hyperbole is all around us, who gets to decide when it is no longer "hyperbole"?   Right now it seems as though the media makes that decision.
