American Terrorist's Daughter: Flying Planes Into Buildings "Inappropriate"

TERROR FAMILYSamantha Bell, who is the daughter of Joe Stack, who flew a plane into a building last week, went on Good Morning America today, and, well, good morning, America! "Now maybe people will have to listen" was one of the things she said, though she noted that the actual killing of people with a plane was "wrong." (Glad we can find some common ground I guess?) Also, he is a hero, the TV people wanted to know? Yes, yes he is, she said. Then GMA has some people on who do not agree that Joe Stack is a "hero." Then GMA referred to the incident as a "tragedy." They are teaching the controversy of flying planes into buildings. Up for debate: KILLING PEOPLE WITH AIRPLANES. IS IT RIGHT OR WRONG? Let's DISCUSS IT SOME MORE until we all agree.

HEROISM: Tragedy + Not Much Time + Bitter, Empty Alienation

But what does Emily Post say?

Or better yet, Sally Quinn! If she were to kamikaze her plane into the rival Bradlee family wedding, then I for one would be prepared to applaud this heroic action.

Question: Is your heroism measured by the size of your plane?

See, the problem with 9/11 was not so much the flying airplanes into buildings, it was the flying airplanes into buildings while being Muslim.

No, the problem was flying an airplane they didn't own. If you've worked hard enough to own your own airplane, you can do whatever you want with it.

any capitalist knows this is true.

NicFit (#616)

As one Republican official said the day of the tragedy, "Well, nobody likes paying taxes."

What exactly must we listen to?

brent_cox (#40)

A sob story, mostly.

If it happens in Texas and is done by a white male, he must be a Freedom Fighter/Hero.
Keep upping the ante in this psychopathic country, boys.

El Matardillo (#586)

If the planes are flown by the government or if the people killed on the ground work for the government, then you're a hero. See how easy that was?

NinetyNine (#98)

Now just because he wrote a letter harshly criticizing the US Government and then flew a plan into a government building and killed government workers means he's against America. We should wait until all the facts are in.

True; perhaps he was simply against buildings.

Or airplanes.

They should double his "death tax."

A lot of the time, when people smile like they're smiling in that photo, is when I am most afraid of them.

HiredGoons (#603)

Also: is this the same woman who he tried to burn alive in his house? If so, I find this 'standing-by-her-man' routine doubly confusing.

I have no opinion about the stand-by-your-man thing, but I'll second that she's got that "the comet WILL take us to the UFOs!" smile.

HiredGoons (#603)

Oh, no. For some reason I read 'wife.'

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

Crazy shit that hasn't gotten enough attention: the girl who says her dad is a hero for murdering people to protest high taxes LIVES IN NORWAY.

crookedE (#1,817)

Seriously? Sheesh.

Ron Obvious (#351)

Someone somewhere (wonderful sourcing, I know. I, too, could be a Washington Post reporter) last week posted the federal statute enumerating what, in legal terms, constitutes an act of terrorist. Wrong Way Corrigan here committed an act of domestic terrorism. But since he was white, we have to either ignore that he was a terrorist or pretend that the incident never happened. It's just like 1995 again with Republicans openly suborning acts of terror and Democrats cringing and changing the subject whenever it comes up.

Flaneur (#998)

Yes. This. Just when I thought the disloyal opposition couldn't be any more infuriating, they go and equivocate about a terrorist act directed against the United States government. So thoroughly disgusting.

KarenUhOh (#19)

Can he still take a full depreciation allowance on the plane?

Not to mention a mileage credit for the distance to the IRS office!
