    A shooting in Alexandria, Virginia last week raises the prospect that the nation’s terrorism experts need to expand their vernacular when it comes to terrorist groups. And regrettably, this brand of terrorism is completely homegrown, and one of the major political parties, as well as the mainstream media, are accomplices in fomenting and facilitating this domestic brand of terrorist activity.

    [​IMG]Last week James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old unemployed home inspector, who was virulently anti-Trump and anti-Republican, sought out and opened fire on Republican congressmen and aides who were practicing for an annual charity baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia. Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, from Louisiana, and four others, before he was shot and killed by the Capital Hill Police security detail assigned to Rep. Scalise, and two local police officers responding to the scene.

    Earlier this week, an FBI spokesman explained in a news conference that Hodgkinson had no ties to terrorism. We’ve grown accustomed to Islamofascist terrorism, perpetrated under the guise of jihad, and intended to extirpate infidels from the world. But when thoroughly analyzed, Hodgkinson’s attack is a whole new genre of terrorism, one which the FBI and other law enforcement should be much more aware.

    The U.S. Intelligence community defines terrorism based on Title 22 of the US Code, Section 2656f(d), which states: “The term ‘terrorism’ means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents. The term ‘international terrorism’ means terrorism involving the territory or the citizens of more than one country. The term ‘terrorist group’ means any group that practices, or has significant subgroups that practice, international terrorism.”
    [​IMG]The objective of terrorism is “the use of violent acts to frighten the people as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.” As the FBI explains on their website, terrorists are not just Islamic jihadists, but can also be “homegrown violent extremists who may aspire to attack the United States from within. The terrorist threat against the United States remains persistent and acute, and preventing terrorist attacks is the FBI’s top priority.”

    They may want to start monitoring more closely the extremist fringes and membership of the Democrat Party, and the mainstream media who foment and seemingly encourage violence against those who believe differently, politically.

    Hodgkinson was a member of the Democrat Party and a devout Bernie Sanders supporter who volunteered to work on his campaign. Before he started shooting at the ball field last week, he reportedly asked one of the bystanders whether those practicing were Republicans or Democrats. It was only after he had ascertained they were Republicans that he commenced his attack.

    And Hodgkinson is far from being alone. The New York Times is sponsoring a theatrical production in Central Park that places Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in contemporary America, complete with a Donald Trump lookalike playing the role of Caesar. In the end, of course, Brutus, and the rest of the Senate, turn on Caesar, stabbing him brutally until he collapses in death.

    [​IMG]College campuses are filled with ideological extremists who riot in opposition to the very appearance on their campuses of anyone whose speech or ideology may be anathema to contemporary liberalism. Such riots and demonstrations are replete with hate speech, threats of violence, and assaults on the persons invited to speak to them.

    The Huffington Post recently published an article calling for the “execution of Trump,” and everyone “assisting in his agenda.” And erstwhile comedienne, Cathy Griffin, was fired by CNN for publishing a photo of her holding a decapitated head depicting Donald Trump. And this is the tip of the iceberg. https://www.conservativedailynews.com/2017/06/democrat-party-classified-terrorist-group/ Well there's a lot more in the source not here to consider as we deal with domestic political matters. Please be polite and civil in discussing this seed. Maintain comity as we explore how to end the violence.

    Is there a difference between "terrorism" and the "resistance"? :flagus:

    Your notion is an over reach, on epic proportions. I agree that the rhetoric of the DNC is reprehensible. However, that doesn't mean they have committed, or facilitated terrorist acts. Their language DOES incite violence, as we can clearly see. But, that doesn't make them terrorists, per se.

    The rest of the article which I didn't put here for fear of copyright police suggests details to rationalize the question of the headline of the source article.

    Are you a Russian cyber-terrorist? You seem to meet the criteria.

    Are you engaging in a personal attack in order to get my seed shut down? Calling me in effect a Russian cyber terrorist can't be with in the code of conduct here.

    I thought we were engaged in a thread that was designed to paint people in the broadest brush possible ... under that criteria, you seemed to come across as a Russian cyber-terrorist.

    And didn't you just make a personal attack on EVERY Democrat on this site - labeling them terrorists?

    They aren't terrorists but the alt-left - who leads and drives most of today's democrats - certainly are working to bring terrible ideas and brainwashing our society; especially our kids. They do this through programming them into religions (such as ClimateChange, and "fluid" gender, etc) and fake science and false moral high ground.

    Not really, remember Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma bombing? This is just another example of some fringe psycho going lone wolf...lone wolf terrorism is a real thing

    So to answer the OP, it should be an unequivocal no. It's laughable to actually insinuate that the Democratic Party was somewhat responsible for this attack any more than it is to say that the libertarian party was partially responsible for Timothy McVeigh

    Of course it should be. It is a hate cult and a terrorist group. That was known when Loughner was sent to kill one of the last Blue Dog Democrats, Gabby Giffords, because she wasn't radical enough to vote for Nancy Pelosi for Minority Leader. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Hillary even enlisted Schakowsky's convicted felon husband, Robert Creamer, to engage in acts of terrorism at Trump rallies.

    There is little difference between Islamic terrorists the Liberal hate cult.

    The world's most prolific financier of terrorism is Soros. His message is delivered by such vile animals as Sanders and Warren. They should all be spending time in the jail cells Hillary and Bubba built for the mass incarceration of blacks with their 1994 Crime Law.

    I didn't say anything. The article I seeded simply asks the question. You are the one who instead of replying to the topic of the seed made it about me instead.

    I suppose if one has an emotional age of around 12 and is permanently afraid and in need of safe spaces then designating the dems as a terrorist org makes sense.

    50k lone wolves emerge, blinking, into the sunshine of their wildest dreams.

    Because of some members of the democrat party, the party in concert with the left wing media SHOULD be listed as terrorist.
