Heroes of the Revolution

The Tea Party Movement has a pantheon of heroes. A partial list includes:

Joe Stack
Stack is the lifetime screwup who could never figure out why the IRS would get a little peeved by his habit of not paying his taxes. Stack, burned down his house, stole a plane, and flew it into a building killing an innocent man. He is being called a martyr, his anti-tax statement (murder) noble. Republican politicians like Senator Scott Brown think his actions were understandable.

Charles Dyer
Universally known within the Tea Party Movement as "the first POW of the Second American Revolution." He is being called a "political prisoner." The political act for which he has been imprisoned? Child rape.

Timothy McVeigh
While most people who worship the 1995 Oklahoma City bomber do so quietly, Ann Coulter is the exception.
My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building. ~ Ann Coulter
There is a lot of love out there for this ultimate of government protesters. It takes very little to find Tea Party folk echoing McVeigh's philosophies.
