In a recently closed thread, one of my comments was severely misunderstood, and I’d like to correct the record.
In an attempt to show the absurdity of the use of the term, I wrote tongue-in-cheek “And you’re a terrorist, so there.”
Now, it seems that some thought I was saying that seriously. Perhaps I should have seen that coming, seeing as sarcasm is notoriously difficult to convey in writing. But I’d just like to say that nothing could be further from the truth. I was attempting to convey how ludicrous it is to throw out terms like “terrorist” or “murderer” about people that you happen to disagree with(which had happened several times in the afore-mentioned thread).
I would never call anybody anything like that, and apologize for not making that more obvious.
See my op-ed:
I thought that was quite clear, but I’m glad you pointed it out in case there were people who didn’t get that.
Yes, it was quite obvious.
Of course it was obvious.
Nut then again I thought my post where I said comparing them to terrorists was absurd, was obvious that I wasn’t comparing anybody to a terrorist.
