I saw this posted in another topic
I teach courses on terrorism and the killing of Tiller is a classic definition of terrorism. It is the use of violence (killing Tiller) to cause fear (among abortionists) to achieve a political gain (a decrease in the number of abortions and possibly and end to the practice).
And in another topic on animals I saw a post saying that animal people promote hate and that the animal people/vegetarians/vegans are “terrorists”. (Those aren’t the exact words but the general idea implied).
I’m not aware of any incidents where animal right/animal welfare people/activists or just people who are compassionate towards animals used violence to cause fear to achieve a political gain. So I’m wondering how they can be classified as terrorists? If there are any documented cases please post them as I find that most animal activists (we’ll call them activists for this thread even though I don’t really like the term) are compassionate people and our looking for peace not violence.
