Responding to this post, a reader e-mails with a handy round-up of MSM attempts to tie Joe Stack to the tea-party movement:

Subject: NY times first MSM’er to make the “Tea Bag” connection

They had to stretch back 20 years to do it, but their crack researchers came thru in a pinch.

“In April 1990, a firebomb packed with a tea bag — a reference to the Boston Tea Party — and addressed to the I.R.S. was placed in the mail in Royal Oak, Mich. It exploded, injuring a postal worker.”

And while they appear to make it look like it’s all about anti-government and anti-IRS, they fail to mention his anti-Catholicism, anti-Bushism, anti-capitalism and pro-communism.

I guess it doesn’t fit the preferred narrative.

NY Mag piles on

“In fact, a lot of his rhetoric could have been taken directly from a handwritten sign at a tea party rally.”

WaPo’s Capehart chimes in…

“But after reading his 34-paragraph screed, I am struck by how his alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement.”

Then Time slips this one in not so subtly:

“Toward the end of what appears to be his final note, Stack wrote, ‘Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.’   (See the making of the Tea Party movement.)
