The term "homegrown terrorism" stems from jihadi terrorism against Westerners. ... While international terrorism ("acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries") is a defined crime in federal law, no federal criminal offense exists which is referred to as "domestic terrorism".A legacy of the Patriot Act. The government can simply designate someone a terrorist, and hold them
forever as a political prisoner.
Not so "patriotic". More like a totalitarian way to crush dissent.
