    you understand who we are talking about here.

    They are labeling them terrorists because they are terrorists.

    It's not a matter of what they stand for - it is a matter of who they are and who they are working with.

    Many of these people are similar, if not the same, as many who took part in Oklahoma City, Waco, Ruby Ridge and more. Others may sympathize with the message and are ignorant of who exactly the messengers are.

    They aren't just expressing 1st amendment rights - they are much more active than that.
