    Seriously guys you know little or nothing about the people participating in the thread but you're quick to ascribe labels to them and get into a total rage, are you looking for validation from others or what?

    Maybe it appears like people are "ganging up on" on view point, if they are its swings and round abouts, at one time one view is popular at another time another.

    The reality is that this guy did respond to the politicisation of tax, he didnt think it was one of those things, instead he wrote a manifesto and flew a plane into the IRS!! So its not as if it has nothing what so ever to do with taxation or the politicos who hold that topic dear, loon or not. Granted that if you check back in the history books long enough you'd find hippies attacking munitions factories in the same fashion but then not as many Marxists tried to do a puntious pilot act at that stage.

    IT's Called END THE FED, not the IRS. While End the Fed is against the IRS, the Internal Revenue Service is in the Periphery vision and not the main target. IF this guy was working off of politicization of taxation, then he would have flown his plane into a Federal Reserve Bank. But this was not politically motivated, it was personally motivated. He had personal interactions with the IRS. Even if the Politicization of taxation did influence him, it would be rather insignificant and only affirmed his decision, not make it. And there were probably plenty of other influences that ranked much higher than this.

    He was also crazy, and crazy people will find justification in any place, regardless of what it is, the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan being one example

    Furthermore, your tone and message has changed from when you first entered this thread to what you are saying now, and your current argument is rather flimsy and stained with belligerently using a nasty sex-joke, which as I previously stated just goes to show how old you really are...

    Right-wing extremism has been on the rise for about a year. And every week or so, some prominent person in the conservative movement has some violent "call to arms" remark. Lot's of references to revolution. So they are just feeding this paranoid mindset.

    After the attack, Facebook actually had to take down a huge teabagger support group praising the act.

    So you get shot out of the water - when in fact this guy was more Left than Right - then you follow it up with "Well it doesn't matter because the righties are all crazy and its getting worse all the time"?

    Wow.

    You quote me here. You took my comment out of context. I was questioning the motives of AJ when posting this thread. I'm the one that pulled the letter apart line-by-line so that people would actually read it instead of trying to blame the Tea Partiers or Conservatives.

    Anti-tax rhetoric doesn't come from the Left. It's drummed up by the Right, and at an all time high right now.

    Vulgar, profane? They're just teabaggers. And they get so mad when you call them that.

    Apparently not, since we have a Karl Marx-quoting murderer flying a plane into a building. Just admit it: this guy had NOTHING to do with the right wing. You'll feel better about yourself afterward.

    You're acting like most teabaggers are consistent.

    Anti-tax is right wing.

    And the Karl Marx quotation? The anti-capitalist rhetoric? What are they?

    Teabaggers have no problem with holding contradictory views. They don't experience cognitive dissonance.
