Why is DHS Labeling Protesters “Domestic Terrorists”?

Mat dos Santos

The United States government considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008. Mandela was a designated terrorist 18 years after he was released from prison, 15 years after he won the Nobel peace prize, and 14 years after he was elected president of South Africa.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Mandela was a terrorist (and so was George Washington). At the time of Mandela's arrest he and the ANC were promoting the use of violence to achieve political ends. That IS the definition of a terrorist; using violence to achieve political ends. If a commentator wishes to ague that the Sharpeville massacre was a terrorist act by an apartheid state, I would agree whole-heartedly. However, it becomes an interesting argument when one accepts the right of the occupied to fight back against the occupier.

Labelling non-violent protesters as "terrorists" is a step towards terrorism by government.

Our fearless Tweeter has been terrorizing women, grabbing their pu$$ies and slobbering on them against their will for decades, and DHS is going to call non-violent protesters, Domestic Terrorists?

" That is the definition of a terrorist; using violence to achieve political ends."

By that definition, as American citizens, we are all living in the # 1 terrorist nation in the world!

Ever since the Bush 43 administration, the term "terrorist" has become a handy way to quell dissent, having been applied to environmental, animal rights, peace and social justice advocates. It is now
a nearly meaningless term, being hung on anyone who dares to disagree with TPTB!

Absolutely 100% correct! The U.S. has been #1 in terrorism from the beginning. Just ask Native Americans. Just ask the descendants of slaves! Just ask any non-white, non-European in the world.

Yeah, just ask my spouse who is Native American!

Lets see... Riots. Burning. Beatings including the elderly. These liberals ARE domestic terrorists. The Obama administration DHS labeled the Tea Party as domestic terrorists and there were NO riots, burnings or beatings. Hello?

Just ask the Ancient Britons about the Romans.What about the victims of Ghengis Khan? Just ask the Anglo-Saxons of Britain about the Normans.

At what historical interval do we stop asking?
