The republican definition of a terrorist is some form of Islamic radical who wishes to harm the United States in some way. Most simply equate this to some kind of public explosion or mass killings of American citizens. They do not equate what they say or do as harming the American people in mass.<quoted text> the Republican Party doesn't advocate violence; Real terrorists kill people, I can cite 3,000 murdered by Islamist terrorism.
This, of course, is a completely ignorant stereotype. There are all forms of terrorism and it doesn't just originate from Islamic radicalism.
1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization. 3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting the government.
Did the Republicans use threats as a means to coerce government?“Defund Obamacare or else we’ll shutdown the government/not raise the debt ceiling!” Both actions created a negative economic impact for millions of Americans
The state of fear and submission? Oh that’s easy. Please, outside of straight, white, conservative Christian males, who aren't Republicans afraid of? The Republican party, and the conservative media, constantly perpetuate fear mongering against homosexuals, women, minorities, Muslims, liberals, any media that isn't right-wing approved, Hollywood, science, history, math, education, the poor.
Their ENTIRE republican party is built on resisting government. They've created this “boogeyman” called the Federal Government that they blame every problem in America on.
But then turn around and attempt to scare the American people into voting for them to run the very same government they call the "enemy"
