Ter*ror*ism: noun. The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.
The terrorists have made death threats against legislators – and against their children and families.
And they’ve started to act. They've vandalized. And they cut a gas line at a house occupied by the brother of a member of Congress, his wife, and their four small children.
The people making these threats and taking these actions are not patriots: they are terrorists.
(You would think that might make them rethink their support of policies of indefinite detention and special courts, no?)
And, by the way, the Republicans are refusing to condemn it.
Here’s the inspiring thing: we have members of Congress standing up to them and to the people who incite them – refusing to be intimidated or back down.
