We knew this was coming

``Bush administration said Tuesday that those activities qualify extreme animal-rights activists as terrorists, and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch agreed.``

Luckily, not everyone is on the bandwagon. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary committee's ranking Democrat, scoffed at that: "Most Americans would not consider the harassment of animal testing facilities to be 'terrorism' any more than they would consider anti-globalism protesters or anti-war protesters or women's health activists to be terrorists."

The right has really latched on to Animal Rights Terrorism, comparing it to ``groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nation.``

Of course they never mention pro-life terrorists who kill doctors. Because that's a war against abortion and that's OK.
