I’ll throw it out there since no one else seems to want to do it: the guy who flew his plane into a building this morning killing at least 2 US Government employees was a right-wing nutjob who was obsessed with the IRS and government bailouts.

In short: he was a tea-bagger.

Today wasn’t just some randomly-selected day to fly your plane into an IRS building.

Today was a big day in the Tea Party movement. Tons of big Tea Party events were being held today because it’s the anniversary of the evil, liberal, Obama-signed stimulus package that has had right-wing nutjobs up in arms for months.

The only thing that surprises me about this right-wing, domestic terrorist event is that it didn’t happen sooner.

It kind of makes you rethink that Homeland Security Report on right-wing crazies which specifically mentions “lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks”.

    you are making a rash judgment based on the bullshit right-left american paradigm. sure, if you read the entirety of his “manifesto,” you will find elements that any teabagger would feel comfortable with. but would those same teabaggers be comfortable with his full-scale assault on corporate america, corporate bailouts by the government, his support of health care reform, to name only a few things?

    this is where the two-partiers are blind. they don't see the rising tide of populist anger that is not isolated to the “right,” that soon might sweep away this entire system as we know it. i've predicted on this very blog and others that this is exactly what will soon happen.

    look at it this way. if you are financially comfortable and secure and feel that the current system will serve your needs throughout your lifetime, with or without modifications, you will soon be the minority if you aren't already. there is a rising tide. catch the wave or prepare to be swept away. capitalism is doomed.

    You just can't make this shit up.

    B'shalom,

    If the guy had any affinity or connection at all to the teabagger movement I suspect he would have been quite clear about it in his manifesto.

    Or to be a devil's advocate here, if the right wing must take responsibiliy for/ownership of Joseph Stack then surely the left must do the same for professor Amy Bishop, right? Or maybe this is a good time to bring up Obama's buddy, Bill Ayers?

    Or maybe Stack & Bishop are both just nuts, end of story?

    Nuts is calling oneself a home owner when a bank holds the mortgage. Let's not forget property taxes. Nuts is acquiring tens or hundreds of thousands in debt to attain an education that should be free and available to all with the aptitude to make use of it. Nuts is calling oneself “free” when only the cops and the monied class they defend can do whatever they want. Nuts is having your back thrown against the wall over and over again by an interconnected web of injustice and irrationality and not feeling the desire to lash out. Those things are nuts. Attempting to do serious damage to the described system isn't.

  • You don't have access to a plane, do you mvirenicus? Please try to think about the lonely cats that you'll be leaving behind when you decide to lash out at the system.

    I understand your desire for less expensive health care and education. I don't think you'll find any one here who disagrees with that. As a matter of fact, it's a major plank in the Democratic platform.

    But it's a bit naive to think you can simply destroy the current 'system' and suddenly POOF! everyone is a property owner with free access to the higher education system.

    That said, if you do decide to partake in some spectacular and newsworthy anti-government activity, please feel free to leave your final manifesto here on Plunderbund. The extra traffic would really drive up our ad revenue. 😉

    Man, I've gotten too cynical to generate the kind of passion necessary for direct action. I do however have a keyboard waiting to write manifestos customized to the unique needs of any passionate souls unable to give coherence to their own thoughts. I can do marxist-leninism, militant environmentalism and animal rights, all forms of right-wing nuttery including fascism, bland forms of american progressivism, british invasion new romanticism and I'm fluent in the three major monotheistic delusions. My fees are reasonable and include an extensive interview to be certain that all angst will be properly expressed. Said interview will be conducted in a well-lighted public setting. I'm partial to mocha and coconut-flavored steamed milk in a venue that allows handgun possession.

  • Now there's a market in dire need of exploitation. Manifestos for rich, disaffected youth.

    You could include newspaper clippings in your ads that clearly show the quality of your work…

    A high ranking police official familiar with the case admitted that officers were surprised at the clarity and precision of the young man's manifesto, 'Why I bombed the Starbucks during the G8 conference'. “I'm a college graduate familiar with political history”, said Captain Crowley, “but even I found myself on Google just trying to understand the manifesto's extensive footnotes.”

    “I think this kid could have gotten a publishing deal,” Crowley added, “If the whole thing hadn't been written in his own blood and feces.”

    You own a keyboard? And you're going to use it to write manifestos for money?

    Hmmm. Seems to me you own the means of production, now all you need to do is exploit some down-on-their-luck liberal arts grads to churn out manifestos for all.

    Then you too can be a filthy capitalist! Weee!

    i'm on the verge of completely turning my back on politics and big-picture issues in general. i long ago came to the conclusion that the usa is nothing but a massive criminal enterprise and have seemingly acquired enough age and wisdom to realize there's not a damned thing i can do about it, and whether i would want to if i could. americans are such stupid assholes. let em suffer. just look out for me and mine.

    i now hear the name of our current president and laugh — primarily at the skillful marketing that convinced a critical mass of americans that this man represented some kind of change. that's funny stuff. really. i was never “sold” on the change but i certainly bought the hope. dumb dumb dumb.

    so, don't be surprised if i suddenly go silent around here. i have to remind myself less and less often that american politics is a waste of my time, effort and energy. old habits die hard tho. politics has been in my blood since early childhood. the fact i can laugh about it now is a sign of true hope. i'm nearly free, and that has nothing to do with my american citizenship.
