The views of a white, anti-tax terrorist who flew his plane into an American building with the intent to maim and kill Americans are still being celebrated. His motives are still being rationalized. Neither the media nor the politicians will call him a terrorist. No one defending him or rationalizing his behavior is being called anti-American.
But make no mistake, the Austin attack was as terrorist an activity as anything that has happened to us in New York City or Oklahoma City. The only difference is the scale. This attacker is as dispicable as any McVeigh or Atta. His actions place his name among theirs.
A two-tour Vietnam veteran died in Austin, Texas, when a terrorist attacked the building he worked in with a plane. The silence of so many Americans is shocking to the core.
