He's an anarchist terrorist from the Middle East who hates America and loves China....this is Fox News' antichrist.
Is there any indication that he's an anarchist, though? Generally speaking, anarchist are opposed to the concept of leadership, even if it's just symbolic or a figurehead. Doesn't really gel with the concept of a singe terrorist leading an organization and serving as a human example for the rest of the world.
