Republican condones terror attack
Republican Representative Steve King of Iowa told a crowd at CPAC that he could empathize with the suicide bomber who flew a plane into a Federal Building last week. It was bad enough that the daughter of the suicide bomber called her father a hero after killing an innocent IRS worker who was not only a 2 tour Vet from the Vietnam War, but he was a government employee serving his country. The Senator from Iowa takes the cake because he not only said he empathized with the domestic terrorist, but he encouraged others to implode IRS buildings across the country. This is a US House Representative encouraging the destruction of Federal Buildings at CPAC!
We all know this suicide bomber shared many core views with the Tea Baggers and we all want to act like there is no correlation here. This is the kind of stuff we all scratched our heads about when we failed to see the obvious about Ft. Hood, Virginia Tech, and Columbine, but had the audacity to ask WHY? after the fact. Those close to the situations knew why, but didn't act. We have large groups of people who aren't shy about their desire to over throw the government, start a Civil War, etc. Just go to You Tube if your memory is conveniently short. I'm sorry, but this is getting out of control and anyone who fails to see this man for what he was, is no better than him. Flying planes into buildings is supposed to be the highest form of terrorism to an American and for a member of Congress to exalt this terrorist as a hero and encourage the destruction of Federal Buildings is an act of treason and makes him a terrorist too. A terrorist working inside the government no less.
