Jared Lee Loughner

The name of a terrorist. The press won’t depict him as such but that’s precisely what he is. He attacked a member of Congress and a judge. He shot indiscriminately at innocent people who I’m sure he and his right wing fans view as “casualties of war”.

Sarah Palin should be viewed as a state sponsor of terror as should Fox News. They instigate actions such as this fools as well as whoever sent those packages to the head of Homeland Security and other explosive packages found at postal facilities. This shooting was an act of terrorism. It’s titled “domestic terrorism” via the F.B.I.. How do I know? When I was police officer back in 1999, I attended a domestic terrorism class that the F.B.I. sponsored that educated law enforcement personnel on the threats that militias fueled such as the Oklahoma City Federal building bombing  and how these groups operated in the U.S.

Fast foward to 2009 when Napolitano, Head of Homeland Security, warned of the radical rights threat to our democracy. The explosive package addressed to Napolitano… how is that any different then the packages destined for Jews in Detroit from Yemen terrorist via UPS and FedEx in 2010? There is no difference.

Jared Lee Loughner has put a face on the threat of domestic terrorism as it exists today and that face is that of a white guy.  Not Arab. Not Black. Not Hispanic.
