    Hey, he didn't crash a plane into the Heritage Foundation or Americans for Prosperity. He crashed into the IRS. Every teabaggers wet dream.

    So so far, just the anti-tax douche is dead.

    I guess he really was taxed to death. The first one.
    I'm glad no one got hurt.

    I don't think he was a teabagger, but I wouldn't put it past the teabaggers to claim he was simply to build it as momentum. A lot of minority movements will take any extremist under their umbrella early on simply to shore up numbers, but once [and if] they've been established they'll shed them, much like gay rights and the environmental movements. Anyone who thinks he was, didn't read the note. He was relatively anti-Catholic and seemed like a communist; he decried "Big Business", unions, and government alike. Basically he assumed the upper class were all in bed with one another and poor and middle class people got screwed, to the point were he essentially called for a working class uprising.

    The people who are actually showing up at teabag meetings and protests is pretty small I guess, and if he was actually involved we'd probably know by now. But not much has come out about him yet though. From the things he said he was definitely watching news. Some of his talking points were pretty word-for-word from other places. And not MSNBC.

    Maybe a Fox/teabag sympathizer. Dammit! How did our death panels miss him?

    Some libertarians are against Big Business, unions, and government alike, so I don't see where you're getting communist out of it. I mean, as far as I can tell most socialists like unions and some form of government.

    I just think it's great that everyone keeps calling them tea baggers.

    I don't have to. You and ajblaise are calling him a tea bagger. The onus is on you. We have ample evidence that he was a Karl Marx fan, though, and that doesn't sound to Tea Party-ish to me.

    Well, ONE person got REALLY hurt, but that isn't bothering me much. What an asshole. If we learned nothing else from the 2000s, we should remember YOU DO NOT FLY PLANES INTO BUILDINGS BECAUSE YOU ARE PISSED OFF.

    I didn't call him a communist, but he ends the note decrying capitalism and quoting Karl Marx.

    Yeah. The true libertarians are paranoid about all forms of power. Including corporate power.

    A lot support taking away corporate personhood and other means of limiting their influence. (It's just that most of those ways are ineffective).

    Technically, they were the first ones to refer to themselves as the teabaggers... until one of their sex-savvy liberal friends told them what the term meant.

    So, go nuts! We're allowed to say it.
