And Away They Go! Leftwing Media Attempting to Paint Communist Crank as "Tea Partier"

Minute by minute, they claim a guy engaging in anti-Bush rhetoric and Communist sloganeering is a "Tea Party" sort.

At the Washington Post, a writer actually edited out the Communism endorsement -- without even an ellipsis to indicate his omission -- in order to blame the Tea Partiers.

Follow the link and note the parts of the manifesto quoted by Capehart. Yes, of course the anti-Bush rhetoric and screeching about health care is omitted, but something even more revealing is omitted too. Hereís how Stackís manifesto actually ended:
Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, letís try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

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.

And hereís how Capehart quotes the ending:

Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, letís try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

Whatís missing?

This should be a firable offense. This was no mistake. This was a deliberate alteration of a document in order to lie to the audience.

There is "being sloppy" and then there is deliberate lying. Does the Washington Post now endorse deliberate lying?


I knew they'd do this. Even when I saw that endorsement of Communism, I knew they were going to do this anyway.
