Pretty sure he doesn't give a crap and thinks this is all as funny as I do.

I wonder which Underworld movie is Mr. Lucien's favorite.
Probably not a Goat, either.

It's quite a jump from being a jerk and trying to bum rush an event to anything that could be called terrorism.

Wouldn't an anti-Trump counter-protester be someone who is protesting against the anti-Trump protesters?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Don't get me wrong, this kind of behavior is a serious problem and it's only going to get worse the closer we get to November.  But throwing around labels like terrorist isn't helping.

Ugh. Why couldn't we be on the timeline where Bernie won the DNC primary?

I'm still holding out for the FBI to make their call and for Trump to make his swings after capturing the nomination
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

But is it inaccurate?

Of course it's inaccurate, which is why throwing that label around isn't helping. Protesters are terrorists? Hand me a pipe of whatever you're smoking.

Definitely not terrorists.

*******s that aren't helping their own cause? Yeah, maybe.

If you call someone a terrorist, it's not on me to prove you wrong, it's on you to prove it.

And yes, I am just like Dick Cheney. He is my role model.

So if we accept that terrorism is the use of violence for ideological means, then I guess you could say this fits the definition as much as touching someone on the shoulder against their will counts as assault.  But again, I don't see how throwing around such a loaded word is helping.  We're in agreement that this is unacceptable behavior.  But reclassifying violent protest, even violent to the point of being criminal, as an act of terror is not a path we should take.

All I know is that if I'm Batman and Brandon is Dick Cheney, I think I win.  So long as he doesn't shoot me in the face.
