I don’t think it’s hyperbole to call this sociopathy (via TPM):
The daughter of the man who allegedly flew a plane into an IRS building in Austin, killing one person and injuring a dozen others, says her father is a hero because he stood up to the system.
“I think too many people lay around and wait for things to happen. But if nobody comes out and speaks up on behalf of injustice, then nothing will ever be accomplished,” Samantha Bell told Good Morning America.
Stack’s daughter goes on to call his last act “inappropriate,” but clings to the idea that her father’s cause was heroic. Incidentally, she apparently claimed that she felt Medicare did not give her enough money and now lives in the highly taxed nation of Norway.
Meanwhile, Crooks and Liars has a piece up on her father’s victim, Vernon Hunter. Not surprisingly, in the GMA video linked to above, Hunter’s son does not agree that flying a gasoline laden plane into a building makes a person a hero.
The TPM piece also links to a CBS news story about people starting Facebook groups to honor the terrorist Stack. This is beneath contempt.
