Waid retweets victimology

Here's a screencap of a retweet by Mark Waid, of a comment made after a Germanwings plane was destroyed by a mentally ill pilot who concealed his situation from the airline staff:
Now what's Waid's point by extension? Of course no realist thinks only Islamofascists could carry out terrorist attacks (even the Japanese Red Army, a communist movement, committed terrorism years ago), but in this particular case, there's a certain difference: this wasn't a situation where the culprit was motivated by ideologies. Rather, he was crazy on a level that had nothing to do with religion. And if Waid's trying on his part to say nobody thinks a crime on such a high scale counts as an act of terrorism when a non-Muslim is the culprit, that's stupid and insulting.

Here's also another tweet he posted himself:

Alas, his insistence on injecting such severe leftist agendas into his writing on Daredevil these past couple years does little more than suggest he doesn't love DD, or anything else for that matter. Which could explain why he has no complaints about Slott's awful writing.

Sometimes you love something for the right reasons, and other times for the wrong reasons...

"Terrorism" usually means violent acts that are politically motivated. The plane crash does not appear to fit that definition.

If a Muslim were driving recklessly and accidentally ran over someone, it would not be terrorism, it would be manslaughter or vehicular homicide. And if a non-Muslim committed a violent crime for political purposes (an anti-tax extremist blowing up an IRS office, an anti-abortion extremist blowing up a Planned Parenthood clinic), then it might legally be considered terrorism.

So, as usual, Waid is full of it. No one has ever claimed that only Muslims commit terrorist acts.
