    Yes, I'm ever so guilty politicization this event, just read my posts on the issue.
    On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people. Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces his enemy, opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam, and told a neighbor shortly before the shootings that he was going "to do good work for God." There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.

    Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not "jump to conclusions" about Hasan's motive. CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.

    "The important thing is for everyone not to jump to conclusions," said retired Gen. Wesley Clark on CNN the night of the shootings.

    "We cannot jump to conclusions," said CNN's Jane Velez-Mitchell that same evening. "We have to make sure that we do not jump to any conclusions whatsoever."

    "I'm on Pentagon chat room," said former CIA operative Robert Baer on CNN, also the night of the shooting. "Right now, there's messages going back and forth, saying do not jump to the conclusion this had anything to do with Islam."

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    "Like an extremist" is not the same as "is an extremist." Understand that logic?

    I don't think it is difficult to see how this applies to both islamic extremists and Jared Loughner. The guy didn't subscribe to any particular political party, but he obviously held an extreme political ideology which led him to kill several people.
    Except that I think this guy will be found to be a paranoid schizophrenic.
    He also thinks his school is illegal. He answers math problems with things like eat=brush teeth +sleep.
    He is a sick person and in no way can be compared to an extremist or terrorist who knows what they are doing.

    Why don't you end this discussion by showing there she HAS called them extremists...

    She is obviously buying into the extremist lines of Olberman and other hyperpartisan frothing at the mouth liberals...

    This is nothing but feigned outrage. I agree with Nifty that she didn't pick the best word, but jeepers, sparking a furor... really? LOL
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Alright, I think that's a fair distinction. Can't say I'm crying for Loughner over the inaccurate comparison though.

    I wish I'd be able to explain the logic to you Reverend, but I can't because I am not a Democrat. Sorry.
    Catch me if you can.

    Hillary should have the passport confiscated and left in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to be sold as a camel handler. I guess that, that would cruel to do that to camels and the Arab islamos that might see her.

    What is his extreme ideology and how did it lead him to attempt to assassinate Congresswoman Giffords?
