What about the other estimated 6000+ mass killings in the Us since McVeigh that are not "terrorist" attacks (Killings with more than 3 people)


When you start gunning down large numbers of people it's not an act of terrorism.  You kill 2 and worship someone that is not a christian or catholic god and you're a terrorist.


I shouldn't have to spell this out for you because it's been done to death


  1. the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
Irish Catholics joined IRA, a group who used bombings and killings against civilians and military to achieve independence for Northern Ireland.
You have a group of people with same religion, ethnic background, common goal and use of violence, hence the reason they were designated a terrorist group.
Likewise, Isis has radical Muslims, whose goal is to create a Islamic caliphate through violence, rightfully so they are labeled a terrorist group.
I am not sure why you think that domestic violence, workplace violence, violence commited by mentally ill person is the same as terrorism, because it's not. 
It doesn't have a political/religious/ethnic objective to advance or achieve, exception to this are hate crimes.
As far as you constantly complaining that only Muslims and non whites are called terrorist. 
I am old enough to remember when white Europeans who belonged to IRA, red brigades, basque separatists, Badder Meinhof etc. were labeled terrorists as well.

That was then this is now, in 21st century radical ideology poses the greatest danger to not only non Muslims but ordinary Muslims as well.

Anyone who thinks that 25-30 lunatics in Topeka Kansas that belong to WBC is the same as Isis, is an idiot.

They might be reprehensible bigots but they have not murdered thousands of innocent people.

I don't disagree that political correctness gone awry is a major problem. Our society needs to re-learn to stand up for things like basic human rights again, regardless of what ethnicity/religion/political affiliation the perpetrator is.

European liberals are bending backwards to allow millions of people into EU,  who for the most part hate their values.

They have different sets of values and they are marginalized in Europe.


Sweden has highest gap in employment rates between native born people and immigrants, but yet they continue to bring more.

Unemployment for Swedes around 5%, foreigners almost 23%.


Countries like Somalia and Afghanistan have virtually no school system, how will they get jobs and become productive?

It will be interesting to see what happens, when thousands of Europeans return from fighting for Isil.

An important reason for the terrorism designation is dealing with the infrastructure that encourages and aids these mass killings. In situations with mentally ill or lone gunman types, the threat is not continuous after the attack. These types of attacks aren't mutually exclusive. A terrorist group can take advantage of a mentally ill individual and encourage him to make an attack. That only further shows how important it is to go after those groups.
