Lunatic Fringe; #Resistance: What's the Difference

9/11/18 New York Times article about special interest group efforts to stop Kavanaugh:
The frustration has boiled over at points. Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Ms. Collins, provided The New York Times with copies of a letter and multiple voice mail messages addressed to the senator using vulgar language and outright threats. One caller told a 25-year-old female staff member at one of Ms. Collins’s Maine offices that he hoped she would be raped and impregnated.
Imagine if conservatives had pulled a stunt like that.  Would you have found it buried deep in a New York Times article?  Would the headline have been, "Conservatives threaten rape if senators confirm Ruth Bader Ginsburg"?
