So everyone has heard about the coward that flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin. And if you read everything flying around the internet, it had everything to do with his politics.
It didn’t. It had everything to do with the crazy.
Leftists claim he was a tea party type. He wasn’t. Tea partiers don’t tend to be anti-capitalism, pro-socialism. They are jumping in to distance themselves from the crazy. And leftists tend to have a rather tenuous relationship with facts.
Really, I don’t blame them. No one wants their belief system associated with someone burning down their own house before killing an innocent man doing his job. Oh right, with all the blame being punted around, you may not have realized that an innocent man was killed by this coward. And he intended to kill more.
Look, I’m not going to blame his actions on the fact that he was a socialist with left wing beliefs. Ok? I’m going to blame it on the crazy. Life was too hard for him so he took the coward’s way out and decided he didn’t want to do it alone. In dealing with the two certainties of life, he chose death before taxes.
He was a crazy, self-important coward that decided it was everyone’s fault but his own that his life didn’t work out like he thought it should. Must have been rough living in a $300K house and owning his own plane. I shed no tears over his loss. My heart goes out to those he hurt, including those that loved him. My prayers are with those beginning the road to recovery from this guy’s final act.
