UPDATE: Both the Washington Post and New York Magazine are also blaming the Tea Parties for the attack.
Hat Tip: Information Liberation
Time Magazine has wasted little time in crudely exploiting the kamikaze plane attack in Austin today to smear Tea Party activists as violent domestic terrorists, implying that anyone upset with big brother and the federal government is in league with Joe Stack, the pilot who crashed his Piper Cherokee into a building that housed IRS offices.
With Obama supporters already crawling over message boards labeling the incident a “right-wing domestic terror attack,” Time Magazine has already jumped on board with a piece by Hilary Hylton which equates Stack’s rambling manifesto with “the angry populist sentiments that have swept the country in the past year”.
Below the third paragraph of the article, there appears a red link to a story entitled, The Making of the Tea Party Movement, which was also published today.

The agenda is transparent – despite the fact that Stack does not mention the Tea Party once in his lengthy manifesto, Time is attempting to blame the kamikaze attack on the Tea Party mentality within hours of the incident.
“The White House was quick to say the incident was not a plot by overseas terrorists. But was it terrorism nevertheless?” asks Hylton. “In his note, Stack was very clear he was unhappy with the U.S. government. He complained about onerous and merciless taxation of individuals like him as well as corruption and the special treatment the executives of big corporations allegedly received after their companies failed. And he seemed to be as emboldened as any suicide bomber.”
So according to Time Magazine’s implication, anyone who is upset and angry at the government wants to crash planes into buildings and kill themselves.
