I keep seeing that same question on social media, over and over again…
“Was Stephen Paddock a Terrorist?”
Such a dumb question. Why? Because it doesn’t fucking matter, that’s why.
People are arguing that if he was beige, black or anything less than a whiter shade of pale he would be classed as a “terrorist”.
To these people I ask…”Are you stupid? Are you the kind of person who argues whether Quinoa is pronounced ‘keen-wah’ or ‘kin-oy-ah’?”
If so, I say “dude, it’s the seed of a fucking plant, who cares how it should be pronounced?”
And the same goes for all you asking and arguing about whether the latest mass shooter in America was a terrorist or not.
Newsflash: It doesn’t matter what you call him.
Most of you will call him a crazy fucking lunatic, anyway. Labels don’t matter in this situation. We are not fighting for whether gay people should or shouldn’t be called ‘faggots’ (they shouldn’t), or whether the word ‘niggas’ is OK between friends (it is, as long as at least one of those people are black and are OK with it)…
No, you’re arguing whether a guy who shot a shitload of people should be labelled a terrorist or not.
For fuck’s sake, wake up!
The thing is this….
The Definition of a Terrorist is…
“Terrorist: A person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”
Now, most people would add “religious aims” to that, but still, Stephen Paddock so far as we know didn’t do what he did for religious or political beliefs….he was just crazy!
The question we should be asking is….
“Stephen Paddock, we can say for certain, was certifiably fucking crazy…
HOW THE FUCK WAS HE ABLE TO BUY ENOUGH WEAPONS TO DEFEND A SMALL COUNTRY?!”
