What’s going on with Democrats? That’s what we’ve been asking ourselves after this past weeks news stories.
First, on Friday, February 12th, news broke that a professor at the University of Alabama snapped and went on a shooting rampage, killing three. Though her exact motives are still unknown, it’s being chalked up to a moment of temporary insanity brought on by frustrations over her lack of tenure at the university.
While ABC News calls Ms Bishop a “loving wife and mother,” those close to her had a different opinion. The Harvard PhD was described by her friends as, “a far-left political extremist who was ‘obsessed’ with President Obama to the point of being off-putting”.
Then, yesterday, we receive news that Joe Stack of Austin, TX had set fire to his home, got into his private plane, and crashed it into the front of an IRS building killing himself and one other. His motives are a bit more clear as he left behind a 6 page suicide note.
Not having taken the time to analyze Mr. Stack’s manifesto, the leftist media was quick to jump on the incident trying to tie his frustrations with the federal tax system to the Tea Party movement.
The Huffington Post said of his note, “[it’s] as a broiling anti-government battle cry -- Tea Party on steroids.”
Taking a more cautionary approach, the DailyKos urged not to jump to conclusions towards Stack’s motives while insinuating in the same breath that he was a member of the Tea Party movement.
“Reading larger political motives into this action would be preliminary, until more information emerges about whether he actually has been involved in any political movement like the teabaggers. But it should inject a bit of caution into the anti-government flame-throwers on the right.”
The truth as it turns out is that Joe Stack was apparently another leftist with communist sympathies. Among cries for government healthcare and anti-corporate and Christian sentiment he writes in his manifesto:
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.
The apparent embracing of the communist mantra, while at the same time regurgitating Henry Fairlie’s, “a man whose unique brand of conservatism frequently left him more sympathetic to the Democrats than the Republicans”, derogatory capitalist mantra, can only lead one to the conclusion that Joe Stack embraced leftist ideology.
So again we ask after one week and two crazy leftist snapping and murdering people, what’s going on with Democrats? Has the realization that tax and spend policies don't work pushed them over the edge? Has the realization that their Dear Leader Obama has been an inept failure caused their screws to come loose? Were they tired of waiting for that Obama money that’s never coming?
Who really knows? But one thing we do know is that Joe Stack believes, like the leftist dictators of the past, that “violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer.”
BTW, anyone remember this guy, who snapped about six months ago and murdered a pro-life demonstrator in front of a Michigan high school?
