You know… once you said it, it makes sense, but we generally differentiate between radical Islamists and white supremcaists, but at the end of the day, they come from the same reactionary background? So… yeah. Conservative terrorists it is for the whole lot of them.
I like to use the term ‘Fundamentalist’ instead of ‘Conservative’:
- it’s already a well-defined religious term;
- (real) Conservatives can move forward, just more slowly than Progressives, whereas Fundamentalists always want to go back to some mythical better time and culture.
Makes sense to me…
I’m going to stick with conservative. It’s more generally accessible and it pisses off the right people.
Update- suspect identified.
They didn’t develop the “gaslight them and deny the whole thing even happened” strategy until Sandy Hook.

“ In their lawsuit, the families accused the FBI of negligence. They say the bureau received tips about Cruz, including his amassing of weapons and his desire to shoot up a school, but agents failed to intervene and prevent the violence.
Weeks before the shooting, a tipster told the FBI that Cruz was “going to explode,” and that he “was going to slip into a school and start shooting the place up.”
Not a mass shooting, but the crime wave is hurting or killing several people.
