Since 9-11, the right wing has ridden the “terrorist” mantra to no end.
Yes, there are terrorists, but I do not believe they are the boogeyman behind every act of violence.
At the rate the right is moving, the next shooting by some entitled adolescent will be called a terrorist act by al Qaeda.
Never miss a local story.
Will there always be a terrorist threat? Absolutely: For me and many of you, our first memory of terror was the 1972 Munich Olympics. The difference, is the Israelis tracked down every terrorist and we never heard a thing till they were through.
If the right really wants to do something in the war on terror, stop being its publicist.
