How come when a white person commits terrorism it seems like the Republicans want to try and understand where they were coming from? I remember similar fuckheads expressing similar sentiments after the Tiller murder and I know there have been other examples that I’m forgetting. When brown people blow stuff up it’s cause for a decade-long freakout and complete rearrangement of our national priorities; when the same things are done by white people, well, hey. A person can only stand so much big-government oppression you know?
Appearing on Fox News soon after Stack flew an airplane into a building, Brown told the national television audience that he “feels for the families” affected by the attack. In the next breath, however, the senator added:
“I don’t know if it’s related but I can just sense not only in my election, but since being here in Washington, people are frustrated. They want transparency. They want their elected officials to be accountable and open and talk about the things affecting their daily lives. So I am not sure if there is a connection, I certainly hope not, but we need to do things better.”
