Rick Perry thinks that calling for a third round of qualitative easing by the Feds is treason.

"Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, or treasonous, in my opinion," said Perry, on his first full day of campaigning for the Republican nomination.

...

"If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don't know what y'all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas," said Perry.

Hey, Rick? First, threatening violence against a government official is illegal. Second, making implied death threats against a government official – which you are doing by calling Bernanke's policies "treason" and letting the audience connect the dots to "treat him pretty ugly" is even more illegal. Third, you're hardly behaving like a Christian, Mr. "Preach To 30,000 One Day And Make Death Threats The Next" Perry. As a matter of fact, you're behaving more like the antichrist in my book. Third, Bernanke is Jewish, and I find it hard to believe that didn't factor in the level of violence of your statement. This is especially scary considering that Jews (Leo Frank, for example) were lynched in the South.

You should be ashamed of yourself, Perry. You should also be sitting in a jail cell for this terroristic statement.

So, a terrorist blows up a bomb in Oslo, Norway, and then slaughters more than 80 people, most of them teens, at a summer camp on the island of Utøya.

A police official had this to say:

"It seems it's not Islamic-terror related," the official said. "This seems like a madman's work."

So, the guy is a member of a Christian ultra-right group, and he's a "madman". If he were a Muslim, he'd be labelled a terrorist. But because he's Christian, he's not a terrorist, and his actions are referred to as killings, not as terrorism.

Gotcha. Because Christians, Jews, and atheists can never be terrorists. Christians can slaughter over 90 people in Norway, over 300 people in the Oklahoma City, US, or shoot a Congresswoman and kill bystanders in Arizona; Jews can enter mosques and massacre people who are praying there during Ramadan, and these are considered isolated acts of violence by "madmen", "person with a grudge", "psychopaths", etc. But not terrorism. Oh, no. Not ever. Because only Muslims engage in terrorism, right?

Fucking HELL no. Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism. It doesn't matter if it's carried out Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, atheists. The people who commit these acts are terrorists, period.
