I am being told to mourn the deaths of the people in England and am being told to call their killers "terrorists."

I am being told to take pride in the deaths of the people in Iraq and am being told to call their killers "heroes."

"Why"? Good question. The people murdering civilians in England are Islamists, and the people murdering civilians in Iraq are also Islamists.

The left thinks that all people who target civilians for any reason are heroes, and also that all Islamists are heroes, whether they target civilians or not.

Conservatives think that all people who target civilians are terrorists, period.

I don't understand your selective respect for life, and I don't much care to. I don't waste my time trying to understand the KKK, holocaust deniers, Islamists, neo-Nazis, or left-wing terrorism fans. A fascist is a fascist, as far as I'm concerned. In this country, we tolerate people with paranoid delusional belief systems, and rightly so.
