"I was kidnapped by terrorists. It's not like I'm numb to this and think it can't happen. But get real!" Hearst admonished. "There's so much weeping and wailing and memorializing, my feeling is it'd be a lot healthier if people didn't externalize so much and kind of bucked up a little bit."
The 51-year-old media heiress was famously abducted by the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974, then served 21 months in prison for bank robbery and was pardoned by Bill Clinton.
"What good is our government if they can't keep our level of fear at a point where we can think about what's really going on?" she told Lowdown. "We are a nation with the most frightened people on the planet. People who come over here just laugh at us."

How soon some forget. Sorry Patty, we never will.
Oh yeah.... I'd forgotten that Patty Hearst was another one of those terrorists who was pardoned by Bill Clinton.
Patty makes the perfect heir to the Hearst fictional news empire .
She did look kinda sexy holding that grease gun.
Why did the Symbionese need liberating anyway? Where would the Symbion nation be?
I never thought of Patty Hearst as a "sage" individual whose advice I would seek.
I'm not a cartoon character, but I play one on TV. Here's to keeping a low profile, ya rich B****.
Fruit-Loop, Ding-Dong, Moon-Bat, Foil-Hat, Whack-Job alert. This former Symbianese Liberation Army Bank Robber and Terrorist is lecturing us. PATTY:JUST SHUT UP!!
I liked her better with a machine-gun in her hands... and her mouth closed!
No Patty, they laugh at YOU. They don't laugh at us.
Patty : They are probably laughing at how you fooled Bill Clinton into giving you a pardon. You did fool him didnt you? Or did he really know you were guilty and pardon you anyway. I doubt it made any difference to Bill.
Yes, Patty Hearst and the FALN terrorists that Klinton pardoned. OTOH, Bush has been getting terrorists for over 4 years.
I agree with her to the point that the american media frenzy about scaring people is too much. I am amazed whenever I travel overseas, people here say "Aren't you AFRAID to be going out of the country?"
I reply "I gotta fly out of LAX, about 2 miles from the worst, most violent ghetto that I will see on my trip, once I'm out of there, I feel a helluva lot more safe"
Why is it these people are so obsessed with what other countries think of us?
Or, do they just like saying it because they believe, somehow, that it legitimizes their point?
Once a nutcase, always a nutcase.
I guess Patty has broken her silence only to confirm that she is as crazy as most have suspected. Sometimes it's best to remain silent rather than to speak and confirm suspicions.
She condemns what she sees as a victim mentality, even as she asks us to accept her victim narrative, in which she was simply kidnapped by terrorists and not a terrorist herself.
