Oh Jesus you people. When Snopes has been wrong, they fix it.
There is nothing wrong with Mixture - Sometimes fact checks don't fall into black and white areas.
They are correct here:

What's Undetermined
In the absence of a single, universally-agreed definition of "terrorism," it is a matter of subjective determination as to whether the actions for which Rosenberg was convicted and imprisoned — possession of weapons and hundreds of pounds of explosives — should be described as acts of "domestic terrorism."​

We have murky domestic terrorism definitions. Domestic terrorists in my mind are terrorists, but in the minds of some, the assholes who planted bombs outside DNC and RNC and the violent RW insurgents on 1-6 were true patriots. Our laws need to become much better defined and domestic RW terrorists need to be treated no differently than radical Islamists who have attacked us.

Relax - It will do your body good!

Did a 'Convicted Terrorist' Sit on the Board of a BLM Funding Body? (snopes.com)

What's True
Susan Rosenberg has served as vice chair of the board of directors for Thousand Currents, an organization that provides fundraising and fiscal sponsorship for the Black Lives Matter Global Movement. She was an active member of revolutionary left-wing movements whose illegal activities included bombing U.S. government buildings and committing armed robberies.

She was charged with bombing the US senate in the 80s. Got caught with hundreds of pounds of explosives. Was in a few terrorist groups etc.
But her actions described as "domestic terrorism" is questionable. LOL
Instead of simply saying "true" they call it a "mixture" and throw in some bullshit.
Here is the definition from the FBI
Domestic Terrorism: Definitions, Terminology, and Methodology — FBI
Thats right folks. The definition was written into US law.
18 U.S. Code § 2331 - Definitions | U.S. Code | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute (cornell.edu)
And Snopes is actually more credible than Politifraud.....

Of course a random wino on skid row is more credible than either.

The only way Snopes could "fix" what they are "wrong" (openly fucking lying) about is to take their site down.

Fact changers exist to gaslight. Snopes are laughably crude. Morons like you jerk off to their idiocy, but no one takes the shit they vomit out seriously.

WAIT - you work for Snopes, doncha?

This is the same crap we hear when the subject of Bill Ayers comes up. The guy was definitely a LW domestic terrorist in the 60s. Obama sat on a charity board with him. Big whoop right? He is a respected professor and decent citizen at this point.

Guess what? Snopes really did get this one wrong. You don't want this chick anywhere near you or even living in your town. If domestic terrorist did have a universal definition, it might have her picture beside it.
