If this isn't an example of terrorism, what is?

The same day a brick crashed through her Niagara Falls office, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D) says her staff discovered an assassination threat aimed at her family members. The Democratic headquarters in Rochester was also targeted.

No one was inside when the brick was hurled through the Democratic Patry Headquarters on University Avenue. Attached was a note quoting conservative Barry Goldwater: “Exremism [sic] in defense of liberty is no vice”.
That's not a typo either, it's how the word Extremism was spelled on the note. I dare anyone to say this was not an act of terrorism. Terrorism is defined as the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes. These vandals should be treated the same way we treat foreign terrorists.

  • Does that mean it was terrorism when Obama supporters went after Hillary Clinton's campaign offices before the primaries, too, or is that different?

  • The BO, Pelosi, Reid, and all of the others who used intimidation and threats to get this health care bill passed are terrorists. They threatened and intimidated the members to change votes.
