Dictionary.Com defines Terrorism as 2) the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
The terrorist’s goal is to instill an unrealistic sense of panic in the population of the nation they are attacking.
When the recent terrorist attempt to blow up his dick on a US aircraft before Christmas failed, we as a nation pretty much defeated that attempt by ignoring the whole thing. Failed terrorist attempts are pretty much old news as Islamic terrorists have proven that they just aren’t as good at attacking America as Right Wing Christian terrorists.
But that doesn’t stop the GOP from trying to help the Islamic terrorists by panicking and trying to convince others to panic.
People like Jim Demint are taking advantage the fact that the GOP has spent a lot of energy blocking Obama’s pick to lead the TSA Transportation Security Administration, to moan about that the TSA hasn’t said anything about the attacks.
Fox news is yelling about Obama’s slow three-days before issuing a response to the event, wasn’t as quick as Bush’s taking Six days to respond to the similar shoe bombing attempt. (What is it with Fox not knowing the difference between more and less? I thought that subject was pretty well covered in Sesame Street.)
Dick Cheney is hitting the airwaves to say how the Administration’s approach to stopping terrorist attempts by focusing on results instead of empty rhetoric is wrong. Because it’s well known that standing on your porch waving your fist at kids who get on your lawn is much more effective than putting up a fence.
Other members of the GOP are doing everything they can to turn this non-event into a panic, doing the terrorists work for them.
So to all the members of the GOP who are hitting the airwaves in an attempt to spread fear and panic I say “Shut-up Stupid” you are doing the job that the terrorists failed to do.
