    Read this article and discuss.

    Is it a double standard that Loughner is not considered a Terrorist, simply because he's white? Or do you have to be a Muslim to be a terrorist?

    EDIT: You gotta Muslim to be a Terrorist. Game, set, match.

    There's a difference between a random terrorist (any violent perp could be considered a terrorist) and radical Islamic terrorists.

    For one thing, no all those Islamic terrorists are crazy. For another, they all have the same creed, and an organized plan. They work together to spread terror.

    I don't have to read the article. He is not considered a terrorist because he's not a terrorist. Muslims are not terrorist either - regardless of their skin color.

    Terrorists are terrorists.

    Hope that clears that up.

    From the article (not original source):

    [According to the United States Law Code, terrorism is “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents.” New evidence alleges that Loughner possibly planned for years to assassinate Giffords, a prominent politician.]

    Explain why Loughner doesn't fit this description and you will win the discussion.

    Key words: politically motivated. What is the evidence that this guy was motivated by any political ideals? There is none. Please do not waste my time providing a link to some bullshit in the media that links him to either right or left wing politics.... There is no fucking evidence.

    The term terrorist usually describes a person, that's usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism. Although any person who terrorizes or frightens others could be called a terrorist. But society more or less defines terrorist in the former description.

    Yea because the OK City Bomber wasn't considered a terrorist. The Unabomber wasn't considered a terrorist! The KKK church bombing aren't considered terrorist acts.

    You, like all liberals are want to apologize for Muslims no matter the situation! In Major Hassan case he was motivated by religious ideology and wanted to strike a blow against American, but Loughner was plain and simple a nutjob and no political agenda! He was a god damn loner for christ sake (and note I didn't say lone wolf, MUCH DIFFERENT)!

    And it you don't remember leftist cowards like you wouldn't allow us to call a spade a spade with Hassan! That was until the evidence was overwelming that he was a Islamofacist Terrorist!
