so let me get this straight...

Not terrorism. (Photo by Jeffery Speck)

A bunch of brown people, outraged at the policies of the US government, fly planes into buildings, killing people, and they are, understandably, labeled terrorists, triggering an apparently never-ending "war on terror™."

A white guy, outraged at the policies of the US government, flies a plane into a building, killing people, and Huffington Post reports that:
Homeland Security is investigating all angles but the incident does not appear to be terrorism.
Just as a reminder, terrorism is defined as, "the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes." Like, for example:
I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt; it will take nothing less. I would only hope that by striking a nerve that stimulates the inevitable double standard, knee-jerk government reaction that results in more stupid draconian restrictions people wake up and begin to see the pompous political thugs and their mindless minions for what they are. Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn't so, but violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer.
The dictionary folks must have inadvertently forgotten the "... by other than white people" part.
