Last week Joe Stack gassed up his plane and flew it right smack into a federal office building in Austin, Texas. The impact killed Mr. Stack, as well as an employee of the IRS, while injuring over a dozen more. Mr. Stack left a 3,200 word manifesto online, vilifying the IRS and the complicated tax code, though hardly explaining why such drastic measures were needed.
So how come this joker hasn't been labeled a terrorist? Where are the mouth-breathing throngs of flag-waving 'Mericans calling this an act of terror on Obama's watch? For instance when the Crotch Bomber tried to blow up Detroit, conservatives went so far as to say Obama and Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano were asleep on the job. Yet, it seems the same critics that jumped on the Crotch Bomber story to decry Obama's national security credentials have now gone silent. Only this time, people - Americans - died. So what gives? Isn't our safety our safety? Aren't our enemies our enemies? Liberals say that because Mr. Stack personified the tenants of the Teabaggers, the conservatives aren't so keen on calling attention to the tragedy.
Truthfully, there could be any number of reasons for this. But let's be honest. Mr. Stack is white. And as we all know whites can't be Muslim, and therefore cannot perform acts of terrorism. That's in the Constitution, and, most likely, the Bible too.
