We left-wingers understand that terrorism is a type of attack. It is not defined by the motivation.

Terrorist acts are committed for a legitimate reason or an illegitimate reason. But right-wingers think the motivation is part of the definition. So what left-wingers label as terrorist attacks, such as the mass murder by Anders Brevik (because it's a mass attack on innocents intended to intimidate a demographic), right-wingers don't, because they consider the motivation legitimate (Christian supremacy in this case). Pundits like those on Fox News will never label white, non-Muslim terrorists as terrorists, because they agree with the motivation. This makes them terrorist sympathizers.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
