Why is Joseph Andrew Stack a Teabagger?

By this time we’ve all heard about the nut who hated the IRS so much that he crashed a small plane into the IRS office in Austin, Texas. And we’ve also read his manifesto. But somehow the MSM has concluded that this nut job was not JUST a nutjob, but an actual Tea Party supporter.

We see the following “editorials” from the MSM:.

NY Mag piles on

“In fact, a lot of his rhetoric could have been taken directly from a handwritten sign at a tea party rally.”

WaPo’s Capehart chimes in…

“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 Time slips this one in not so subtly:

“Toward the end of what appears to be his final note, Stack wrote, ‘Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.’   (See the making of the Tea Party movement.)

National Review

It’s more than apparent that the media decided to pick and choose words from Mr Stack’s manifestor with an already preconceived bias, namely they made the square peg fit into the round hole.

But what they ignored were the rants about anti-government, anti-Bush and even some pro-communism stances Start mentioned. Yeah, sounds really Teabagger to me. (sigh)

In his manifesto he curses the government:

Why is it that a handful of thugs and plunderers can commit unthinkable atrocities (and in the case of the GM executives, for scores of years) and when it’s time for their gravy train to crash under the weight of their gluttony and overwhelming stupidity, the force of the full federal government has no difficulty coming to their aid within days if not hours?  Yet at the same time, 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.  Yet, the political “representatives” (thieves, liars, and self-serving scumbags is far more accurate) have endless time to sit around for year after year and debate the state of the “terrible health care problem”.  It’s clear they see no crisis as long as the dead people don’t get in the way of their corporate profits rolling in

He curses organized religion:

… Some friends introduced me to a group of people who were having ‘tax code’ readings and discussions.  In particular, zeroed in on a section relating to the wonderful “exemptions” that make institutions like the vulgar, corrupt Catholic Church so incredibly wealthy….

He goes after Bush:

As government agencies go, the FAA is often justifiably referred to as a tombstone agency, though they are hardly alone.  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

And he supports communism:

The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed

It would have to take a totally biased idiot to attribute any of the rantings of this man to “Teabagger.” Oh wait, I’m talking about the main stream media. I forgot.

This is a totally dishonest assessment and a hatchet job being done by the MSM. This would be like calling the shooter, Amy Bishop, at the University of Alabama, a die hard Obama lover who killed her collegues because of her obsession with Obama. Well we know she was obsessed with Obama, but no conservative has even considered that connection. YET, the MSM has decided to attach a Teabagger connection to Joe Stark.

To quote David Freddoso of the Washington Examiner; “Seriously, though, you’d think educated, intelligent people would see the difference. Unless they don’t want to see it.”
