DoomsDayAlpaca saidLol I feel like I'm parroting the commentators of the article...
But come on, the IRA wasn't exactly a Muslim group. Neither are the majority of gay bashers in this country, Islamaphobes, KKK members, neo nazis, or "Christian Militias"
Being phobic against a group of people does not make you a terrorist. Neo Nazis are not terrorists because they're not blowing shit up. Oh right, if it were 1933-1945 the opposite would be true. But it's TWO THOUSAND AND TEN now. Similarly, KKK members haven't blown shit up in years. Islamaphones just hate Muslims. If you want to call a "terrorist" anyone who is biased, prejudice, or commits discrimination, well then everyone's probably a fucking terrorist. That's right, based on your BROAD definition of terrorism as depicted in those examples, we're all likely terrorists. Because apparently terrorism, which used to mean terrorizing people by blowing bombs up, now just means any group of people or individual who hates any other group of people or individual.
I think you need to differentiate between the following words:
If I see KKK people start killing Blacks and blowing up Black community places again to the SAME DEGREE I see Muslim terrorist blow shit up on a weekly basis, well then my good man you'll have a point. Until then, no. Fox news isn't entirely inaccurate. Just slightly.
Am I denying that there are other kinds of terrorists? Absolutely not. There's a diversity in terrorists. However, most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims today. I'm not dumb enough to equate that to the erroneous belief that most Muslims are terrorists though.
