Word police: “terrorist” re the Oregon Y’all Queda militia

They are not terrorists, K… don’t use that word.

There’s also these spurious ironies being drawn, like “if they were black or Black Lives Matter and armed and occupying public space the LE reaction would be a lot different.”  I’m not convinced that’s true, assuming what happens is merely that a brigade of federal law enforcement goes out to rural Oregon to arrest these guys and issue tickets in an orderly fashion when the time is right.  I think that’s probably what would happen if BLM claimed to occupy a rural outbuilding somewhere.

Now, the lefty snarkosphere is riding this pretty hard.  So it’s not that these guys aren’t analogous to BLM in some ways, in that they are to the left what BLM is to the right.
