This goes back to my mentioning of war vets being listed as possible domestic terrorists. Mainstream media wasted no time in magnifying that. Just kind of odd if you ask me.
If one is "domestic terrorism" then the others are as well. If they "aren't" then neither is Wisconsin.

If you're going to label a broad segment of society "domestic terrorists", you better have some "domestic terrorism" for the media and pols to jaw about.
