Hate crime and terrorism

The new trend, at least in the US, is to tackle hate crime via terrorism, by redifining some discourses as terrorist, instead of hate. The assimilation is dangerous for what is terrorism one day can become legal the next, and what is labelled terrorism does not necessarily promote hatred although it often does so. “Senator Lieberman Tries Hunting Down Terrorist Videos On YouTube” http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20080519/1810061172.shtml (20 May 2008)
