Teabaggers trying to make a hero out of domestic terrorist
When I heard the news that domestic terrorist and murderer Joseph Stack crashed his small plane into an IRS office building in Austin, Texas last week I knew that teabaggers and the anti-government militia - really the same people - would make him out to be some kind of hero. They didn’t disappoint.
Already, fan Facebook fan and tribute groups are popping up in his honor. Facebook management is shutting down these groups trying to glorify a murderous terrorist, but they keep popping up like the cockroaches they are.
CBS news is reporting some of the comments posted in the Facebook pages, like this idiot:
"Finally an American man took a stand against our tyrannical government that no longer follows the Constitution," wrote Emily Walters of Louisville, Ky.
This is not much different that the 9/11 terrorists, and even more like the Oklahoma City domestic terrorist. The only difference is that the super-heated, anti-government crap in the mid-1990s led Timothy McVeigh to blow up a federal building in Oklahoma, and the loss of innocent life sent the anti-government cockroaches running for cover only to re-emerge with the election of President Barack Obama.
But Stack’s terrorist attack is just firing up the anti-government teabaggers and their militia allies instead of sending it back underground.
This guy may just be a mentally disturbed guy who hates the IRS and no other government agency, but whatever he is, he’s no hero.
Like I said back in the mid-1990’s when I worked in Lenawee County where the militia was very active, the government you hate is simply your neighbor, the man or woman who coaches your Little League team or is a deacon at your church.
The real hero is Vernon Hunter, a 61-year-old IRS collection agent and a Vietnam veteran who was murdered by Stack.
