Because fools like you insist on expanding the definition someone else must be wrong?<quoted text>
You on the right insist that "terrorism" must have a "political" component. That is because you spent so much time using the 9/11 attacks for political gain. And it worked, for a while. But I stand by my statement. Terrorism is any act performed with the aim of inducing fear, whatever the motivation.
Sorry, but the right wing no longer has a trademark on the word "Terrorism". Your trademark expired, and the American people refused to renew it.
Definition of terrorism
the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims: the fight against terrorism international terrorism
Definition of TERRORISM
: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion
Trademark on the word terrorism? Are you daft? The school shooting was nothing short of a tragedy. There’s no evidence the shooter had any goals other than kill a lot of children. It was criminal action, not terrorism.
