I'm getting really tired of this. A young man who (from the news coverage) came to this country, got a green card, and lived here quietly for several years, recently decided to drive a rental truck through a group of walkers and bicyclists in New York City. He killed 8 people and injured several more. From the note in Arabic which he left in his truck, it's pretty clear that he bought the Islamic State line, and was radicalized in the last few months. So he's a terrorist. Oooh, cringe in terror.
And yet, the 64 year old white man who set up a sniper post in a Las Vegas hotel and killed 58 people attending a country music festival, and injured over 500 others - he's not a terrorist. This is pretty obviously because the news media buys the racist line that you are only a terrorist if you have brown skin, were not born in America, and speak Arabic. If you're white, you can't be a terrorist. Is that racist? Yup, it is.
This is baloney. High grade, all beef, thinly sliced baloney. Can we please call people who kill other people, for whatever ridiculous reason, what they are? They are criminals. It is a crime to kill other humans. It's been a crime for so long that it's even in the Ten Commandments - Thou shalt not kill. I might add it is also in the Quran. Every major religion prohibits killing.
