Stochastic Terrorism

stochastic terror.jpgSomething changed in 2016. Before that, the vitriol [George Soros] faced was largely confined to the extremist fringes, among white supremacists and nationalists who sought to undermine the very foundations of democracy. But with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, things got worse. A genie was let out of the bottle, which may take generations to put back in.–Alexander Soros

Stochastic terrorism is public demonization of a person or group which may probably incite a violent act, whose specifics are unpredictable.  Public attacks on Democrats (or members of another party), and news media are examples.

Here are some instances:

  • Crooked Hillary
  • Lyin’ Ted
  • Fake News
  • Attacks on Planned Parenthood
  • Failing NY Times
  • Extreme Ithaca Liberal
  • George Soros, lock him up

However, I see a contradiction here–if President Trump or Tom Reed had publicly condemned neo-nazis, which might have led to violence directed at them, would that be an example of stochastic terrorism? Evidently public opinion must decide what demonizes and what appropriately characterizes deviltry.

    The problem I have with Progressive Liberals is that they are opposed to opposing and different views. You continually block my replies either because you are afraid others may see a different opinion or perhaps even the truth.

    Pystew you are a phoney.

    Liberals, progressive or not, are open minded; all opinions are welcome. I take a dim view of spam–nobody cares. If your comment doesn’t appear, most likely it doesn’t meet our standards. If I am the author, it is more likely my decision than Pystew’s. Read more here:
