What was that about "defining deviancy down?"

First there was Alan Colmes who declared murdered abortionist George Tiller an "American hero." Now, one of Tiller's brethren has this to say about Tiller's killing:

"This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated ... This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."

Besides this remark being beyond asinine, I'm curious: How did we "tolerate" Pearl Harbor (and the Lusitania, for that matter) for "too long?" How did that work, exactly?
