The opinion columnist captioned the tweet, "See the difference? Me neither."
However, social media users slammed Graham for her comparison.
Radio host Sebastian Gorka said: "Yes you moron. The left is a group of Patriots who love America and our Judeo-Christian Civilization.
"The right are savages who kill Christians, Jews, atheists, and apostate Muslims.
"And you're still an imbecile."
Podcaster and political pundit Stephen Miller fired: "You would get mad if a drone strike actually took out the one on the right?"
Co-founder of The Federalist Ben Domenech said: "Ford vs. Toyota? Oh wait, right, the *beheadings*."
Christina Sommers a former philosophy professor wrote: "A Boston Glove and NPR contributor. Oy vey."
U.S correspondent for the Telegraph and former Middle East reporter Josie Ensor said: "From a journalist who has covered both – please don't do this."
The Boston Globe cites Renée Graham as an associate editor and columnist stating she started as a general assignment reporter and moved onto features and arts.
