...And The Crowd Goes Wild



I don't care how Sean meant it... the important thing here is how the crowd perceived it.

I don't get it.

They are cheering the notion of being like Tim McVeigh, the most successful of our domestic terrorists.

Perhaps they are cheering how I "outed" them as Right-Wing extremists, and therefore on terror watch lists?

Sean was making fun of how I labelled them, and they are applauding his joke.

In her statement Wednesday, Ms. Napolitano defended the report, which says "rightwing extremism" may include groups opposed to abortion and immigration, as merely one among several threat assessments. But she agreed to meet with the head of the American Legion, who had expressed anger over the report, when she returns to Washington next week from a tour of the U.S.-Mexico border.

"The document on right-wing extremism sent last week by this department's Office of Intelligence and Analysis is one in an ongoing series of assessments to provide situational awareness to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on the phenomenon and trends of violent radicalization in the United States," Ms. Napolitano said in her statement.

"I was briefed on the general topic, which is one that struck a nerve as someone personally involved in the Timothy McVeigh prosecution," Ms. Napolitano said.


Are you really this clueless?

Well "Janet" (for someone as homophobic as I the person I think you are, you choose to impersonate women pretty frequently) I guess it's a matter of interpretation. It didn't sound so much like snarky laughter to me, but my bias is different than yours.

So which makes more sense to you, people openly applauding being compared to Tim McVeigh, and therefore approving of what he did; or people applauding the host who remined them that the Director of Homeland Security thinks that they are "extremists" and "dangerous"?

Oh, I get it now. You are taking things out of context and deciding you can read the minds of an entire crowd that is clapping because the TV producers put up the applause sign so they could go to commercial! I get it now. It's a leftist smear campaign. I shudda figgered.
