Skip to comments.The Insane Manifesto Of Austin Texas Crash Pilot Joseph Andrew Stack (was he a Leftist Moonbat?)
Posted on 02/18/2010 11:00:39 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Check out the anti-big brother rant on EmbeddedArt.com that's almost certainly from the pilot of the crash.
The manifesto is dated today, and it even anticipated his death.
If youre reading this, youre no doubt asking yourself, Why did this have to happen? The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time. The writing process, started many months ago, was intended to be therapy in the face of the looming realization that there isnt enough therapy in the world that can fix what is really broken. Needless to say, this rant could fill volumes with example after example if I would let it. I find the process of writing it frustrating, tedious, and probably pointless especially given my gross inability to gracefully articulate my thoughts in light of the storm raging in my head. Exactly what is therapeutic about that Im not sure, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
We are all taught as children that without laws there would be no society, only anarchy. Sadly, starting at early ages we in this country have been brainwashed to believe that, in return for our dedication and service, our government stands for justice for all. We are further brainwashed to believe that there is freedom in this place, and that we should be ready to lay our lives down for the noble principals represented by its founding fathers. Remember? One of these was no taxation without representation. I have spent the total years of my adulthood unlearning that crap from only a few years of my childhood. These days anyone who really stands up for that principal is promptly labeled a crackpot, traitor and worse.

Guess the Obama admin was looking the wrong way on that right wing militia scare.
The screed was very Marxist in tone.
He’s going to get tagged as a “tea bagger” and used to smear the conservative movement. Mark it.
There was a powerful vein of anti-Catholic hatred running through it.
But seriously....an ANTI-TAX COMMUNIST??? That’s just weird...
At least he didn’t have a Muslim name.
Madman and a leftist as well.
Is that redundant?
He sounds like a Rosie fan...
Definitely a lefty moonbat - we can’t let the left frame this one.
I read his screed. He hated everything from corporations, to the American Health Care System, to the Catholic Church, etc.
Screed ends like this:
“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.
Joe Stack (1956-2010)
Yeah, he’s all over the place. Confused me too.
He appears to have resented taxes so much because they went to 0bama’s buddies, Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, Big Corporations etc.
another Stinking Dead Commie
Thats not weird. They are all anti-tax when it comes to themselves. Its the other guy that should have his taxes raised.
Well, he made some valid points, but all in all he blamed all of his problems on the govt. It’s no wonder he never learned to avoid more mistakes. He was to busy blaming everyone else.
Sounds a lot like Francis E. Dec, Esq:
(A must listen)
Oddly enough, there are some useful nuggets like:
"...wealthy sows at the government trough"
Definitely a Liberal rant.
The heavy and progessive U.S. tax code he rails against is inspired by the Communist Manifesto.
It was a leftist screed from a guy that apparently couldn’t figure out tax planning for a contractor. Good grief. Taxes suck — but get a grip.
He punctuated the thing with a “communist creed” — “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” — and a “capitalist creed” — “from each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.”
You’d think he’d have gotten on well in Austin.
What a nut.
I’ve been to various parts of Texas and in some cases have visited places (San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, etc.) a few times but never made it to Austin. Isn’t that considered a very liberal community?
Bashing GM bailout.
This quote is interesting “I filed no return that year thinking that because I didnt have any income there was no need. The sleazy government decided that they disagreed. But they didnt notify me in time for me to launch a legal objection so when I attempted to get a protest filed with the court I was told I was no longer entitled to due process because the time to file ran out. Bend over for another $10,000 helping of justice.” The reason it is interesting is because the IRS was running adds on the Radio stating that people did not have to file if they did not owe taxes. My father fell into that trap and the IRS tried to go after him. My dad was able to beat it by working through a tax advocate, but it was pretty frustrating considering the ads that the IRS were putting out on the radio.
I can sympathize with him to some extent, but pretty soon you get the picture. He’s trying to tell a tail of woe. He views himself as a victim. But a lot of the facts don’t really wash.
The lady who lost her pension? I call BS. My dad was a steelworker. When Republic steel went bankrupt, the PBGC picked up the tab. Less mioney? Sure, but not “none”.
Same thing with his losing $10k for not filing in a year when he had” no income”.
Anyway, obviously a troubled individual. May he rest in peace.
Did you read the screed? There’s really no way he’s a communist.
Yep, but, watch the news media try to spin it.
They think only "the rich" should pay taxes and can't believe it when they find out they owe taxes too.
Oh I agree, we were just talking about that among ourselves here at work. Whenever liberals talk about raising taxes it's always for the guy who makes just a bit more money than they do.
That being said...his screed was all over the place.
I read every word. He may not have been a communist ... but he certainly was an anti-capitalist.
He quoted the “communist creed” and parodied “capitalist creed” on his own ... so apparently he thought it worth noting. If he was conservative — I can’t imagine he’d have quoted a “communist creed” with admiration, and a “capitalist creed” with disdain.
That’s probably why he had to terminate himself, he couldn’t stand himself, he was a divided human being and couldn’t find his way. I feel sorry for him and for his family, just a terrible thing.
Among the many things members of the Øbama administration get flat out WRONG, the sickos that threaten America don’t watch Fox News, they watch MSNBC. This spew could very well be an Ølberman rant.
He is most likely taking about tax exemptions for paedophilia.
You don’t own your own plane, do you?
Well, yes, he is kind of ‘all over the place’ —in Austin.
I don’t understand why he thinks it is the IRS’s fault he failed to report his wife’s income. How bizarre.....
You are a kind soul. I can't feel sorry for him. I do feel bad for his family though. Especially if he did try to burn them in the house.
Here’s a copy from the LA Times. Not sure if it has been posted:
I’m not sure you could fairly label this guy.
Sounds like a man who just couldn’t handle life, someone who had huge chips on both shoulders and was angry at everyone.
Not somebody you wanted as your next-door neighbor, for sure.
Actually, CNN made it a point to say that this guy wasn’t a right-winger. I heard it myself.
He is strongly against section 1706 in the 1986 tax law. This law makes it difficult to work as a contractor if you are in the technology field. I agree that this provision should be repealed. I do not understand why unhappiness about this tax law provision would cause a homicide-suicide act.
"The recent presidential puppet GW Bush and his cronies in their eight years certainly reinforced for all of us that this criticism rings equally true for all of the government.
But he never once mentions Obama.
I actually read the entire thing. The man is nuts. He’s taken one from column A, one from column B, and two from column C to create his own little insane worldview, which culminated in double murder and a suicide.
To describe this as ideological one way or the other doesn’t seem right. I sense ideologies used in defense of inner turmoil and madness.
I read it and all I can wonder is what was his DU screen name?
Blamed “Bush and his cronnies”, Corperations, and the IRS. He’s everywhere.
One would be ‘hasty’ in their judgement unless and until walking in this mans’, or any mans’, shoes. What you find problematic, someone else might find intolerable. Pity is; the man knew not what to do with the dispair.
He definitelly is not crazy about one detail; nothing will change unless FORCED to change.
Well, he certainly was a typical libera Austin Moon Bat.
