False equivalence. I remember when it was argued by some during the 50s that getting bent out of shape about the use of nuclear weapons was just a modern version of medieval fear of the use of the crossbow rather than just the traditional long bow.
"When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another ..."

So begins the Declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies from the king and country to which they had given allegiance since the settlers first came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock.

The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line.

Four score...
