Skip to comments.Joseph Stack: Disillusioned Leftist, Not Racist Right-wing Teabagger
Posted on 02/20/2010 8:35:31 AM PST by callisto
Despite the leftist ideology revealed in Joseph Stacks manifesto, shortly after he crashed his plane into the IRS building in Austin, TX, progressive media lept to align him with the Tea Party movement, describing him as right-wing, racist, anti-tax, patriot, or militia. Sensing the danger the average American citizen in the Tea Party movement represents to Democrats in 2010 and 2012, they seized the opportunity to insinuate Stacks alliance hoping to halt the movements rising populist wave across the nation.
As expected, leftists at the NY Times, Washington Post, NY Mag, Time, Newsweek, ABC and Daily Kos swiftly established the talking points. ABC News went so far as to resurrect Janet Napolitanos quickly retracted Depatment of Homeland Security April 2009 report citing,
Rightwing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal through propoganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning.Quoting Mark Potok, of the Southern Poverty Law Center, ABC maligned,
the result is what [is] referred to as a broad-based, right-wing populist rebellion.But Joseph Stack cannot be branded as a member of the right. Stack was neither a teapartier nor right-winger. And he was more than just a loon who attempted to avoid paying income taxes. Although incoherent and underdeveloped, his rants are decidedly left-wing and his manifesto, or at least parts of it, are very similar to diaries at the Daily Kos.

Mark Potock is the most dispicable man in America, he ought to be deported.
Whose side is Horowitz on? “Racist” what does that mean besides a left wingers smear tactic of using a word coined by a mass murderer for use against the enemies of mass murder. David is incoherent by using that word.
Ping. To be forwarded to my friends.
That’s the word some of the left-wing media is using. Read the article before jumping to conclusions.
AMEN to that. See also http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2454982/posts
Oh, thanks for the link. I’ve been sick the last couple days and missed out on a lot of news. That looks interesting.
Fair enough; however given the above...
I would be highly interested if there was enough remaining of the late Mister Stack sufficient for an autopsy.
A tox screen that might show drug residues (both legal and/or illegal), and also whether he might have had a brain tumor or some sort of encephalopathy that could cause him to be irrational and energized.
Regarding the drug potential, recall that Adolph Hitler was a speed freak. If at all possible, drug use or some other brain condition should be evaluated and eliminated as possibilities before too much is made of political affiliations.
David interjected it into article without quotations. A fall back to his days of being a red I suppose.
I think that’s just an image to go with the article. Wow! Two freepers in such a short time attacking someone on the right for an article defeating the leftist media’s slander. This looks like it’s going to be a fun day. < /sarc >
Actually, that’s my posting error in the title on FR. Apologies.
No doubt this guy has an internet trail. As I always ask about these nutters when they do themselves in, “What was his Kos avatar?”
Supposedly Stack initiated his manifesto month’s ago. As to whether it represents a detoriating mind, or if he happened to have moments of extreme angst when he contributed more content to it between times of lucidity, I can’t say. But it would be interesting to know more physiological details. You make a very good point.
Attack you? I thought I simply asked a valid question...
Did you even read this analysis?
An example I worked with a young girl a veggie lefty stoner chick who literally in her stoned out state could go on for hours about herself, but believe it or not she was hilarious.
Did you even read my analysis or the article, David injected “racist” in a matter of fact tone. I object, do you?
Sorry if I misinterpreted your actions. It’s been a brutal morning, and the Left has been insinuating themselves on FR and other conservative boards to put down anything on Stack.
Am I missing something? This article looks to be penned by a Liz Blaine.
