So Clinton is joining the MSM in ginning up the concept that those who oppose our arrogant egotistical leader are to be feared. A steady drumbeat by Rachael Maddow of the forthcoming tapes of McVeigh to be shown, will confirm that we are “to be afraid, very afraid” of the coming revolution. Maddow, with her jaw set, looking down into the camera, lips pursed, brow furrowed, intones in a monotone voice, “this is a reminder of what is out there”. For myself, I have found the Tea Party folks to be a happy hopeful lot. Looking forward to the coming election, and once again restoring America to all that she can be. While I have not been to all meetings, I have yet to see anything that would signal an upcoming coup de tat.
With the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing approaching, former President Bill Clinton on Thursday drew parallels between the antigovernment tone that preceded that devastating attack and the political tumult of today, saying government critics must be mindful that angry words can stir violent actions.
“Because of the Internet, there is this vast echo chamber and our advocacy reaches into corners that never would have been possible before,” said Mr. Clinton, who said political messages are now able to reach those who are both “serious and seriously disturbed.”
“There can be real consequences when what you say animates people who do things you would never do,” Mr. Clinton said in an interview, saying that Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the Oklahoma City bombing, and those who assisted him, “were profoundly alienated, disconnected people who bought into this militant antigovernment line.”
The former president said the potential for stirring a violent response might be even greater now with the reach of the Internet and other common ways of communication that did not exist on April 19, 1995, when the building was struck. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/16/us/politics/16clinton.html
