Was Teabagger Behind Insane Manifesto And Plane Crash Into IRS Employees In Austin?

February 18, 2010

UPDATED

Time will tell, but I am betting from what we already know that the teabagger mentality is at work in this case.

Less than 24 hours after I commented on the number of ‘half-baked’ potatoes in this land an example of what I meant crashed a small plane into a building of IRS employees.  Sad, but true.

Now there is a ‘manifesto’ allegedly from the crackpot who flew into the Austin building.  The tone of the text he left behind is summed up as follows.

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.

###

I know I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand.  It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn’t limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants.  I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after.  But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change.  I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at “big brother” while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough.

That, my reader, is what I mean by half-baked potatoes.  Therefore, I repeat a line written yesterday, but it takes on more meaning today.

We all must be diligent in these days fraught with so much hate from those who wish to undermine the government.

    I just don’t understand why people on the left have to use tragedies like this as a way to try and make some type of disjointed statement. Whether he was right or a left wing Obama socialist does not matter people were killed and. Injured by a mentally disturbed person and shame on the blogger here using that for political gain. This blog is s prime example of the division and hate the left now bringd to America thanks to president Obama

    I made this political?

    Did you see what Stack wrote? The action he took?

    And I made it political?

    And then you try to rationalize the action of this nut by buying into the crap he wrote about the IRS, and I made this political!

    Or did I hit to close to the bone?

    The events in Austin reek of a false flag operation. The size of the building versus a tiny Piper Cherokee.
    But then the use of the word “birthers” in quotes no less, pretty much sums up where this blog is coming from. Skinny little self hating guilty white liberals would probably starve if not for conservative Americans. Or at least the mexicans to pick your vegetables. I suggest trying to eat meat on special occasions.

    Oh, goodness. Why do you have to make this political? Right vs Left. Pshaw!

    A man was driven to the edge of his sanity by dealings with the IRS. His life savings was about to be devoured by IRS penalties and you ascribe this to political behavior. Shame on you.

    Trying to score political points from this tragedy is unbecoming.

    Want to bet if Joseph Andrew Stack becomes a martyr by the right-wing Randy Weaver types? I think he was a part of the right-wing milita movement by his words in the text he left and now his deeds. All these fringe groups are linking up with the Tea Party. One big cluster fuck.

    Amy Bishop was a Lefty…But her politics had no correlation to her devious act…She was a whackjob; plain and simple…

    The guy who shot up Police officers in Pittsburgh was a Righty…But his politics had no correlation to his devious act…He was a whackjob; plain and simple…

    The guy who shot up the Holocaust Museum was a Righty…But his politics had no correlation to his devious act…He was a whackjob; plain and simple…

    Just the same, Stack’s Communist manifesto leads to him being a Lefty…But his politics had no correlation to his devious act…He was a whackjob; plain and simple…

    This routine of —- “Somebody did something! Let’s find his political affiliations so I can smear people that disagree with me!!! And if they’re on MY side, I’ll rearrange the facts!!!” —- has got to stop…

    Articles such as this foment polarization, not dwindle it…:(

    Frankly to me from reading his manifesto, though admittedly it’s somewhat unclear scatter brained, it doesn’t appear that he’s necessarily angry at government as much as he may have been angry at Obama’s inability to socialize/communize the government in an expedient manner.

    Yeah, but has any teabagger or anyone from any of those groups you listed ever put the “communist creed” in a good light? Much of the guy’s complaint could come from the left or the right. E.g. – “the joke we call the American medical system”. That’s not a teabagger thing. Here’s what local lefty blogger Emily Mills wrote today: “our health care system is fucked beyond belief.”

    The anti-tax, anti-government language employed throughout the text is of the type that we witnessed all last summer. It is very much related to the mindset of those who are of tea party stripe. Let us also not forget that Tea Party events have become a magnet for other groups and causes — including gun rights activists, anti-tax crusaders, libertarians, militia organizers, the “birthers” who doubt President Obama’s citizenship, Lyndon LaRouche supporters and proponents of the sovereign states movement.

    Are you sure this is a teabagger mentality? At the end of the screed it reads:

    “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.”

    I suppose one can interpret it many ways but I think most people will read this as him favoring the communist screed over the capitalist one and I think teabaggers would rather die than agree with anything communist.
