Context matters.

Sarah Palin has said, "shoot president Obama."

OMG!  We always knew she was a violent racist, didn't we?

But, wait, that's not the whole statement.

In context it's, "If we were really domestic terrorists, shoot, President Obama would be wanting to pal around with us wouldn’t he?"

Changes the entire character of what's said, doesn't it?

h/t Here.
