When Is a Terrorist Not a Terrorist?

The answer, according to Faux News coverage anyway, is when he is not a Muslim. The recent events in Paris brought the foaming froth to the mouths of the talking assheads on Faux News, who are insisting that Obama is a fascist-communist-Nazi-America-hating-Islam-enabling atheist traitor for not calling it "Islamist terrorism".

Leave it to those fuckers to politicize any tragedy and blame it on Obama.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has compiled a list of the rightwing terrorist plots against the United States and its people in the 20 years since the 1995 terrorist bombing of Oklahoma City, and it's a fucking long one!

All of them have a couple of things in common, though. There are no "Islamists" on that list, but it is way top-heavy with "Christianists".

And the second thing?

As far as I can tell, Faux News did not describe a single one of these as "terrorist".

I guess it depends not just on what is getting blown up or how, but more on who is doing it.

What again was that thing about Christianity being the "religion of peace"?

NAACP was bombed couple days ago in Colorado Springs. Fox deemed it a lone wolf disgruntled type and end of coverage, actually it's nearly impossible to find anything about it in any news source. CS if you haven't been there is becoming a christian taliban community, which by the way has infected the Air Force accademy where multiple times the last few years charges of religious descrimination/hazing have been alleged coming from senior class men and faculty.

The MSM quickly buried the story on the NAACP bombing earlier this week as well.
