"All these Tim McVeigh wannabes here"

by sawamix

Watch as Sean Hannity’s audience applauds him calling them “Tim McVeigh wannabes” — as if that’s a GOOD thing.

In case you’ve forgotten, or are too young to remember, this is what Tim McVeigh, the angry punk that the teabaggers who now control the Republican Party regard as a hero did:

But wingnuts don’t want to see this photo, nor do they want to think about the outgrowth of their racist white supremacist insanity. Instead, they come up with this:

Catherine Crabill, a homeschooling mom and realtor who says "our Second Amendment rights were to guard against tyranny" and believes that the U.S. government was responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing,  is challenging incumbent Republican U.S. Congressman Rob Wittman.

When contacted by the Washington Post in 2009, Crabill also defended remarks she made 15 years ago about the Oklahoma City bombing being orchestrated by the U.S. Federal government. Crabill was a member of "a militia known as the New Mexico Citizens Action Association", and had told the Washington Times "this heinous act of violence was the work of our government," which will "use it as an excuse to aggressively attack the growing militia movement across the country."

"But Crabill also reiterated her view yesterday that the U.S. government was behind the Oklahoma City bombing, saying her views found support in a report by retired Brig. General Benton K. Pardin arguing that on the April 1995 bombing could not have happened without the assistance of internally placed demolition charges. She said the idea of her own government deliberately killing its citizens seemed farfetched even to her until the tragedy at Waco and the violent confrontation with Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge in the 1990s."It would have been unbelievable if we hadn't seen [former Attorney General] Janet Reno destroy all those innocent people in Waco," Crabill said."

Gun control has been taken completely off the Democratic Party’s list of issues. Barack Obama has said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about wanting to take people’s guns. But every time there is a Democratic president, these people go absolutely bonkers, even though it was George W. Bush, after the 9/11 attacks, who presented the greatest threat to Americans’ freedom to say what they want, do what they want, go where they want.

When the Oklahoma City bombings occurred, the militia movement was regarded as fringe. Now it has taken over the Democratic Party and a good chunk of the mainstream media. Fox News is essentially the network of the Aryan Nation and the militias. A man who was once regarded as a domestic terrorist is now held up as a hero by a television talking head.

We are in serious trouble.
