Liberal MSM Trying to Portray IRS Dive Bomber as a Tea Partier

First the Washington Post suggests the IRS dive bomber, Joseph Stack, is a Tea Partier:

Joseph Stack was angry at the Internal Revenue Service, and he took his rage out on it by slamming his single-engine plane into the Echelon Building in Austin, Texas. We now know this thanks to the rather clear (as rants go) suicide note Stack left behind. There’s no information yet on whether he was involved in any anti-government groups or whether he was a lone wolf. But after reading his 34-paragraph screed, I am struck by how his alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement.

Then they quote part of his manifesto:

But they left something out– the part where he lauds communism and vilifies capitalism.  Full paragraph below before the Wapo cropped it:

Does that sound like a Tea Partier to you?  According to Joseph Stack’s 3000+ word screed, he wasn’t furious at “big government,” he believed the IRS was in collusion with BIG BUSINESS, and that’s what set him off.  And does this sound like a Tea Partier to you?

…the joke we call the American medical system, including the drug and insurance companies, are murdering tens of thousands of people a year and stealing from the corpses and victims they cripple, and this country’s leaders don’t see this as important as bailing out a few of their vile, rich cronies… Now when the wealthy f**k up, the poor get to die for the mistakes… isn’t that a clever, tidy solution… The recent presidential puppet GW Bush and his cronies in their eight years certainly reinforced for all of us that this criticism rings equally true for all of the government. Nothing changes unless there is a body count (unless it is in the interest of the wealthy sows at the government trough). In a government full of hypocrites from top to bottom, life is as cheap as their lies and their self-serving laws.

Or does he sound like a Daily Kosbot?

But despite all this, the Wapo tags him as a Tea Partier!  And that, gentle readers, is the media environment we’re working in.  I say Breitbart’s right– burn it all down.

Read the rest, here and here.



  1. I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.’ Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Taliban and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad.
    You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!’ So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell!!!

    ‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it:

  3. […] struck, the same Libbies did precisely the opposite as they RUSHED to link him with the Tea Pary.  Since day one, Libs have been trying to turn Joseph Stack into a Tea Party poster child. Frank Rich at the NY Times is the second major Lib that I’ve seen PURPOSELY OMIT certain […]
