Unthinking Majority wrote:There's no universal 100% agreed upon definition of "terrorism". This is the definition that US federal law uses. It is considered terrorism under US law, therefore within US borders these people are committing acts of terrorism when they burn cop cars and set buildings ablaze in order to achieve political goals. It's also terrorism with these rightwing nutjobs shooting up mosques etc for political reasons. Obviously, as I've said several times, the latter is worse than property destruction. I am equating the two in that they're both terrorism and violent, destructive, anti-social behaviour. I'm not equating the two in that killing someone (as is more common among far-right terrorists) is far worse and far more violent and anti-social than destroying property. One is worse than the other, but neither should be supported or given a pass.
No, that's the definition that the FBI, one agency, uses. Terrorism as a definition even within US law is quite varied in its scope depending on the agency or law you're referring to
. Again you're just nitpicking to fit into your support of Trump's narrative.
Even in the case of a protester spontaneously burning a cop car does not fit the definition of terrorism in any meaningful way. Again, this is just your right wing bias trying to paint what is actually mostly a peaceful movement, as a group of terrorists. Even the cases where the protests are "violent" it's usually against something like a cop car or an empty building. To add the label terrorism is extreme. Typical for Proud Boys supporters like yourself though.
Well the man was black and was at a Breonna Taylor protest getting PO'd at cops. But hey, maybe a fool cop was doing something illegal and abusive to him first, who knows, we'll have to see the case unfold. What you need to realize is that i'm equal opportunity when it comes to my dislike of violent fucktards. I literally don't give two fucks what their ideological leanings are. I'm actually agreeing with you in condemning these rightwing morons driving cars into people whose politics they don't like.
My goal is this: no more unnecessary violence. No more a-hole cops killing people they shouldn't, no more far-left dummies burning and looting cities, no more far-right fools strapped and shooting up people. I support the peaceful protestors 1000%, I also want to see massive police & justice system reform & make bad cops accountable.
It's very telling that you start this with "Well the man was black." Not surprising because most Proud Boys supporters like yourself usually have difficulty masking their racism. But ultimately you've been unable to demonstrate that even that case was an act of terrorism or that the person was even a part of any organized group.
You don't support the protesters, stop pretending.
Maybe to a far-left Marxist a moderate looks like a Nazi
You are not a moderate. I'm not sure why you're pretending to be one, it doesn't give your far-right arguments any more validity.
