This is Attempted Terrorism – updated

I say attempted because I don’t think it’ll work.

Terrorism: Use of terror especially as a means of coercion

Terror: 1. state of intense fear; 2c. a cause of anxiety; worry. Synonym see Fear
Terror: 4. violence (as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands

definitions from M-W.com

Sure, this isn’t killing kids, or beheading hostages, but it is still attempted terrorism. These people are attempting to scare people as a means of coercion.

Update: The Kerry Spot has more…

The Duluth, Minn story in the Kerry Spot post has this (emphasis mine):

“It was not an act of hate,” said Dustin “Dusty” Dzuck, 17,
a senior at Denfeld High School. “My mom called me a terrorist.
It wasn’t terrorism; it was activism. It was for a cause
The whole thing is, basically, I just wanted to get the word out there
that in my opinion Bush isn’t doing this country any good.”

His mom was right.

Dusty – Over three thousand people died on September 11th for a cause. People are being taken hostage and beheaded for a cause. And the MSM just doesn’t help by labeling these terrorists as anything but.
