  •  Bush didn't start the habit of calling terrorist (0+ / 0-)

    everyone you don't like for this or that reason. But he certainly is to blame for its inflationary use.

    You calling a lonely, poor guy, probably ill, who went after those who are directly responsible for his misery a terrorist is intellectually dishonest.

    "This sounds like terrorism to me", as you choose to sneer, sounds exactly like the rich old guys with their whiskey glasses,  sneering "well, if it walks like a duck...".

    Terrorism is a terrible label, it currently allows to completely rob a human being of all his human dignity (and rights). and it should probably not even used for people who engage in actual, real terrorism. Much less for any hapless poor fool who goes after the heartless fuckers who, out of spite, practically walked over him and left him with no place to even be.

    •  So, you don't know that I'm "lying" (0+ / 0-)

      You especially don't know that this gentleman was treated better or worse than people with darker skin who might be accused of the same crimes.

      You focus on what you think might have happened.  At least I admit that I don't all the facts yet.

      You've made judgements just because you seem to like this "lonely, poor guy".

      Whatever.
