On Sunday, two rival biker gangs got into a shooting match outside of a restaurant in Waco, Texas, leaving nine dead and several wounded.
Left-wing apologist Sally Kohn got on Twitter to express her outrage at how everyone was using the term “biker gangs”, not “thugs” or “terrorists.”
Sally, it is not about race or hatred. It’s about VOCABULARY!
- GANG: An organized group of criminals.
- THUG: A violent person, especially a criminal.
- TERRORIST: A person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims.
An individual THUG may or may not be a member of a GANG.
Membership in a GANG does not automatically make someone a THUG.
THUGS and GANGS generally pursue criminal activity for thrill and/or personal gain, not politics.
Organized groups of TERRORISTS are generally referred to as CELLS or ORGANIZATIONS.
A BIKER GANG is an organized group of criminals whose activities involve motorcycles.
A BIKER CLUB is an organized group of non-criminals whose activities involve motorcycles.
