^^ Terrorist are Terrorists....... just a fucking wackjob
even at hometown level:
We had some brothers, one was going to RPI building bombs for recreation in our town
kid burned down my childhood friends house across the street from a house i lived in.
i feel like these episodes of violence are giving other fucking wack jobs the confidence of doing such things,
........lone wolf or right wing militia
Another prime example of tapping into Cold War paranoia, about a street in a small town that turns on its own when the power goes out, and talk of an alien invasion starts to surface. This story became so iconic, that it was used in classrooms as a perfect example of insular paranoia and auto-cannibalizing mistrust. The neighborhood dissolves under its own hatred and inability to trust people they’ve known their entire lives, and an angry mob forms, swiftly turning to murder and rioting. So where’s the twist in this story of small town hatred? The power fluctuations and general spookiness were caused by aliens, who plan to spread paranoia in order to take over the planet “one Maple street at a time”
the terrorist clearly wanted paranoia to be the result, not mass killing-- mass publicity and public outcry
perhaps even to spur further hate for Islam.
if you have HBO watch the new series VICE the crew travels to crazy legit rebel child army camps and in the new one they meet with this guy whose a high ranking Towelhead official and like a buddy buddy with bin laladoodoodine
