When Is an Extremist Not an Extremist?

Glenn BeckBy Glenn Beck November 12, 2009 - 2:59 ET I've been down for a couple of days, so I may have missed this, but, has anybody over at the White House labeled Nidal Malik Hasan — the terrorist who killed 13 and wounded 30 more at Fort Hood — an extremist? I've heard him referred to as a "shooter" and a "gunman." He's been called "troubled" and "harassed." We know he didn't want to be deployed and his cousin called him a "good American." But extremist? No, we can't say that; we wouldn't want offend anyone. Are we that politically correct? I guess so. But there is no hesitation by Barack Obama's political arm, Organizing for America, to send out an e-mail calling tea party goers extremists: "Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand." So, that's extremism, but killing 13 people isn't? If there was anyone who could be labeled "extremist," you would think it would be someone who spoke of Islamic jihad to his fellow soldiers and then acted on those feelings by picking up a weapon and killing his fellow soldiers with it. But no, there are real extremists picking up a sign and protesting big government. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
