A "Good" Way to Get a Majority Labeled as Terrorists

"The written exam, given as part of Department of Defense employees’ routine training, includes a multiple-choice question that asks:

“Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorism?”

— Attacking the Pentagon


— Hate crimes against racial groups

— Protests

The correct answer, according to the exam, is "Protests." [link]

Very good backdoor way to start getting quite a few people to start thinking about things the way the government wants them to. This is also known as propaganda and it has been used for thousands of years to great effect by dictator and tyrant alike to sway the support of the masses one way or another.
