    As desperate as you are

    And all the little pigs have God

    Bombing an abortion clinic is terrorism because its meant to cause abortion clinic to shut down. The lynchings of blacks was terrorism as well.
    Major Hasan's motive was to kill as many of Islam's enemies as possible and thereby strike fear in those who remained. It was terrorism. If he were not Muslim he would not have done it. Bombing abortion clinics is terrorism. Lynching of blacks strikes me as more genocide than terrorism. What about the attack on the Family Research Council, inspired by the Southern Poverty Law Center?

    I think the idea that ideology has nothing to do with these attacks, and these people are simply insane, is pretty silly. Clearly ideologuy effects us, and someone just shooting random people because he's in the process of a breakdown is different than a clearly formulated attack with achievable and realistic goals

    Ideology is not the cause, it is the excuse. No ideology in the world makes people commit acts of terror. The one thing that terrorists share in common is they are bat**** insane.

    calling it an "excuse suggests that it has no influence. And while I agree that the issues usually go beyond mere ideology, it's clear ideology helps shape our response to such things.

    It's like arguing nazism had no impact on how the Germans responded to the social and economic conditions following ww2


    No ideology in the world makes people commit acts of terror.
    Who said ideology "makes" people do things? The fact that an ideology would play into their personal calculations would not trump the fact that they were still free acting individuals who chose that course of action. But, it would be equally foolish to suggest that an individuals underlying world view would have no influence on those calculations, either.

    Perhaps, except the FRC attacker said explicitly and directly that he decided to attack based on SPLC's classification of FRC as a hate group. That case is much clearer than the Beck case.
