From the nations’ favorite birdcage liner, Bubba writes about the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing:
…”Finally, we should never forget what drove the bombers, and how they justified their actions to themselves. They took to the ultimate extreme an idea advocated in the months and years before the bombing by an increasingly vocal minority: the belief that the greatest threat to American freedom is our government, and that public servants do not protect our freedoms, but abuse them. On that April 19, the second anniversary of the assault of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, deeply alienated and disconnected Americans decided murder was a blow for liberty.”
Who was responsible for killing those poor souls at Waco, Bubba? The buck stops…at Janet Reno! Anybody but Bubba! And what about those citizens murdered at Ruby Ridge? Anybody but Bubba! Acts that YOU were responsible is what “drove the bombers” to commit murder. It wasn’t talk, it wasn’t the idea that the Government is too powerful, it was the murder of innocent women and children by the government that “drove” them.
…”Criticism is part of the lifeblood of democracy. No one is right all the time. But we should remember that there is a big difference between criticizing a policy or a politician and demonizing the government that guarantees our freedoms and the public servants who enforce our laws.”
Wrong again, Bubba! The “government” doesn’t “guarantee our freedoms.” Guns and guts guarantee our freedoms. The reason despicable creeps like you shy away from taking our freedoms is fear. Fear of what will happen when you try. Fear of an armed and dangerous citizenry, many of whom have not turned into little sheeple, willing to allow you to whittle our freedoms down to nothing.
Do I agree with McVeigh, or the guy who flew the plane into the IRS building? Of course not. If we come to the point where despots need to be killed, don’t pick on those just doing their job. If you are gonna kill the tyrants, KILL THE TYRANTS, not innocent worker bees.
And it is perfectly fine to demonize those in government who are willing accomplices. I, personally, want the government workers to fear us. We may not kill you, but you damn sure better remember that you work for us. If you forget, damn right we will demonize you.
