Joseph Andrew Stack, the anti-tax terrorist who flew an airplane into an IRS building Thursday morning, now has a Facebook page. His profile is filling up with comments, becoming a kind of extra-charged version of the comment forums where talk radio-style fans make their anti-government cases, drawing disbelieving critiques and dismissals from non-true believer surfers. “He’s a terrorist!” “He’s a patriot!” “I don’t agree with his actions but I agree with his reasoning.”
The dead man now has 220 friends.
The scariest words in the english language,” I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Ronald Reagan
The friends and fans, of course, shock commenters like Penee Atkinson:
If this man was a member of the Taliban you would be screaming that a terrorist attack happened on Obama’s watch and that we are at war. But because he believe what you believe you think he is a hero. There is something wrong with all of you.
