One man's terrorist...

We may assume that Christopher Monfort, the accused Seattle cop-killer, isn't a Muslim. Why? Because law enforcement authorities have branded him a "lone domestic terrorist", unlike Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan who gunned down 13 people while reportedly yelling "Allahu Akhbar".
A man shot by police as he was sought in connection with the Halloween killing of a Seattle police officer has been identified as 41-year-old Christopher Monfort.

At a news conference Saturday, Seattle assistant police chief Jim Pugel called Monfort "a lone domestic terrorist."
So while everyone responsible for protecting US citizens from terrorist attack, from the President on down, ties themselves into knots not to call Hasan a terrorist, Monfort gets the label pretty easily.*

One man's terrorist is the same man's poor, suffering stress puppy.

* I should note that I don't have a real problem categorizing Monfort as a domestic terrorist, given the information in the article. But it seems there's an irrational fear of doing so when the perpetrator may have been motivated by Islamist ideology.

This man's crime can surely be placed squarely at the feet of the liberal left. Any screening would have demonstrated his homicidal tendencies, yet such screening and action on it would of course been "discriminatory".

Multi-culti sensitivity will kill us all.

I was looking for more info on this quickly labeled terrorist, (made me doubt he's a muslim) i've been shocked to find no links to Glenn Beck or any of the growing list of right wing hate groups (makes me think he might be a muslim). No photo to be found anywhere. I'm sure, as a result, we can count on overwhelming force when dealing with future domestic terror issues in the Northwest, not so much for the rest of the world.

Care to expound on that "growing list of right wing hate groups", pitt?
