Can we call the wingnuts terrorists yet?

Here's the news, just from today:

1. Rightwing congressional candidate Allen West tells the people of Florida to use terror tactics against the incumbent congressman, just for being a Democrat.

"Let me tell you what you've got to do! You've got to make the fellow scared to come out of his house! That's the only way that you're going to win!"

So not only are they admitting that terrorism is their weapon of choice, they're also admitting that it's all they have.

2. The police have arrested one guy for making death threats against Pelosi, and another guy for making death threats against Patty Murray, for the terrible crime of voting for health reform.

So the openly-admitted credo of conservatives is that it's okay to kill Democrats if they dare to do what they were elected to do, pass legislation. Democrats pursue democracy, the wingnuts respond by pursuing terrorism.

And just wait! A whole armed mob of them is heading toward Washington to confront Congress on the anniversary of the Oklahoma bombing.

ADDENDUM -- the guy who threatened Pelosi? Yep. Gets goverment help with his housing.

And Allen West? Tossed out of the army because he and his troops were caught beating and threatening a police officer.

Our hero.
