N.L. PM calls for war after pie incident.

After calling the pieing of Fisheries Minister Gail Shea "an act of terrorism," an MP stepped up his rhetoric and began calling for war.  "This is terrorism," he said.  "It's terrorism of the worst kind.  And we need to have an appropriate response, and the appropriate response is to find a country where people look kind of like her, and we bomb them."  The MP referred to the pie-er who perpetrated the pieing, a woman involved with the PETA organization, who oppose the seal hunt.

When asked if he proposed dropping huge pies on the selected country, the MP was incredulous.  "No.  Bombs.  This isn't clown-school shit, this is terrorism!  Many, many, many people need to be killed."

Speaking out against PETA, MP Gerry Byrne says, "When someone actually coaches or conducts criminal behavior to impose a political agenda on each and every other citizen of Canada, that does seem to me to meet the test of a terrorist organization."

PETA issued a statement saying that they agree with the MP on that point, and are "calling on the Government of Canada to actually investigate whether or not the government, with its ill-advised sanction of the slaughter of seals, is acting as a terrorist organization under the test that exists under Canadian law."

Some individuals are not waiting for an investigation.  An unknown individual has spray-painted the word "Terrorist!" on the MP's house.

"This is outrageous!", the MP is reported as saying.  "It's very damaging to myself and to my family to be called a terrorist.  You can't just accuse someone of being a terrorist, just because they did something wrong, something you don't like.  In fact the person who vandalized my house is the terrorist!  And we need to start bombing some countries.  It's shameful that anyone would call me a terrorist for something as silly as condoning the slaughter of baby seals.  These days, 'terrorist' is a hateful and very damaging word, and it shouldn't be used lightly.  The vandals should be charged with hate crimes for publicly labeling someone as a terrorist.  I've had it already with these animal-rights terrorists and the rest of Canada disagreeing with what the government does... that's terrorism, if anything is."

When asked by a reporter if he thought he was perhaps being a ridiculous idiot, the MP replied "Shut up, terrorist."
