The Eco-Terrorism Bugaboo

Animal rights groups and environmental activists who cause property damage, particularly the ALF and ELF, are classified as terrorists and apparently constitute a new front in the Bush regime’s phony “war on terrorism.” Just take a gander at this CNN article.

While this blogger certainly does not encourage people to commit illegal acts, the fact is that these “terrorists” have killed no one, while the lies of the Bush regime have killed so many that it is hard to keep a body count. Bush and his people shamelessly peddle spin, distortions, and outright lies that result in thousands of deaths and many more injuries, plus incalculable property and environmental damage. So why isn’t the long arm of the law reaching out to collar these people? Why hasn’t Bush been impeached?

But let me return to the article. The FBI’s John Lewis is quoted as saying about the lack of human victims and the increasing size and frequency of attacks that “Plainly, I think we're lucky. Once you set one of these fires they can go way out of control.” Leave it to the law to hype the eco-terrorist threat, while ignoring the neocons, who are rattling their nuclear sabers and threatening us all with annihilation, as they commit mayhem around the globe.

And leave it to the lapdog media like CNN to print this but avoid questioning the obviously untrue government account of what happened on 9/11, one of the world’s biggest terrorists acts.

Relatively small incidents of property damage like those committed by the ELF and ALF are immediately labeled terrorism, while the institutionalized large-scale mass-murder terrorist acts committed by governments are excused as “national defense,” no matter how obvious the lies. The bigger the crime, the more likely it will go unpunished, with the perpetrators hailed as heros.
