    Threatening to nuke a peaceful liberal democracy for attempting to join a defensive alliance is not the same as demanding that genocidal dictators don't use chemical weapons on civilians.

    Except they didn't threaten to nuke them. They pointed out that they expose themselves as a target in the event that Russia's own nuclear deterrent has been compromised. Your framing this as though the moment the Danes commission the NATO shield that Russia conducts a nuclear attack. More of your hyperbole.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    No they threatened to target them with nuclear weapons, not that they might target them with nuclear weapons, or that they will be targeted in the event of war, they threatened to target them, any assertion to the contrary is an overt lie, end of.

    The major difference being that you cannot use SAMs offensively. They are a purely defensive weapon

    Russia's telling Denmark that their acceptance of NATO MD expands their target, is an inconvenience to America, lol. Perhaps in some small financial way.

    Right, and I'm sure they're not the only ones targeted so.
