Just as the right scrambles to blame yesterday's plane crash into a building in Austin, TX as a left wing nutjob, about 600 people as of the time of this publication have joined a group called "the Philosophy of Joe Stack" on Facebook.
The discussions on the page paint Stack as some kind of "hero" for committing an act of terrorism that " is no different than what was going on in this same land over 200 years ago." They even provide documentation of colonial terrorism. There are continued comments about this not being terrorism, just a "disgruntled American" like all of those at the tea party, I guess.
While this goes on, Fox News runs a never ending loop about how he was unhappy with George W. Bush in an effort to paint him a liberal. The Tea Party internet movement says over and over again that this man said the right things. One man, sporting a swastika on his avatar says, "sorry but i cant be happier that he followed thru (sic) with what he said and he is right it takes a body count to get any thing done in this country or loss of revanue (sic)."
The new senator Scott Brown says "...I can just sense not only in my election, but since being here in Washington, people are frustrated. They want transparency, they want their elected officials to be accountable and open and talk about the things that are affecting their daily lives. So I'm not sure that there's a connection, I certainly hope not. But we need to do things better."
I don't care what his philosophy is - the guy is a terrorist who flew a plane into a building to get his beef with the government aired in public. Instead of playing the blame game, we should be working to publicly disseminate and rebutt false information given by these terrorist organizations. Oh, and perhaps we should dust off that old Homeland Security Memo the right got so upset about.
