Don’t worry about the government

In which the editors of Newsweek expose themselves as cretins. Apparently you’re a “terrorist” only if you’re Muslim or come from a country with which we’re at war, or, as the managing editor (!) avers without irony:

Here is my handy guide:

Lone wolfish American attacker who sees gov’t as threat to personal freedom: bomber, tax protester, survivalist, separatist

Group of Americans bombing/kidnapping to protest U.S. policies on war/poverty/personal freedom/ – radical left-wing movement, right-wing separatists.

All foreign groups or foreign individuals bombing/shooting to protest American gov’t: terrorists.

Then there are people on cable and Sunday morning talk shows who think liberals run media.

(h/t Glenn Greenwald)
