Wherein I proclaim that unlike our president and the ilk who apparently presume that John and Jane Q. Public cannot handle the truth - or would retaliate in untoward and like stupidity and violence - we can indeed call Scimitar terrorism terrorism as per here.
Personally, I reject all politicians' ridiculous efforts to define and delineate the terms of public discourse. A pox upon them, sooner or later.
After all, isn't the very word, "politician", synonymous to "worshiper of Mammon?"
