Did Former President Clinton Forget Ruby Ridge and Waco?

In August of 1992, the FBI killed Randy Weaver’s son and wife and shot Weaver in the back.

The following year, the disaster in Waco Texas saw the Branch Davidian cult, lead by David Koresh, come under siege by the Clinton Administration.  Seventy-six people (24 of them British nationals) died in the fire, including more than 20 children, two pregnant women, and Koresh himself.

We will never know the true and full story behind either, but we do know that the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995 was a direct result to these two unnecessary events that led to so many deaths. Timothy McVeigh, the OKC bomber told us so. But as we watched those horrible scenes unfold in Oklahoma, there should be no doubt that there could NEVER be any justification in such a cowardly and despicable act. That is not how Americans act!

This week, Bill Clinton attempted to warn the nation that rhetoric like that of Rush Limbaugh may incite violence in people like Timothy McVeigh, and equated the Tea Party movement to such violence.

Rush Limbaugh fired back that Clinton had just given the crazies cover to commit violence.

The Oklahoma City violence has it’s origins in ill advised and unnecessary actions against Americans by the Federal Government.

The Tea Party movement is not a militia, it is 55% women, most with children. They are educated and caring Americans that simply want the Constitution returned. They all understand that violence is not acceptable, against others, or against the government. It is also unnecessary. The ballot box will do just fine.

Those on the left, like Clinton, seem to be longing for the violence to come. Perhaps because they realize they are going to lose power without spilling a single drop of blood, and there is nothing they can do about it. At least if they were to incite violence, the government would have a reason to step in and shut down the protests.

We are two weeks away from the 40th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre. Is this a scenario Bill Clinton would invite back upon American protesters?

Those in the Tea Party movement want no parts of the violence of the Clinton administration, or the disaster in 1970. Perhaps instead of ratcheting up the antagonistic rhetoric, Clinton and others on the left would better spend their time listening to those that think more government is not a good thing, rather than shouting them down and blaming non existent violence on them.

Let’s just hope Bill Clinton’s words do not become a self fulfilling prophecy.

    A classic example of distorting (indeed rewriting) history to political ends. The Ruby Ridge incident happened under the Presidency of George H.W. Bush, not Bill Clinton! As anyone with even a small degree of historical curiosity would know, President Clinton was elected in November 2008, three months before the Ruby Ridge stand off!

  2. Gary Phillips says:

    I think these fools that are so quick to cite Ruby Ridge should remember that while Ruby Ridge happened on August 22, 1992, Bill Clinton was not elected until November, 1992 and did not take office until the following January. So the government “thugs” you people are referring to were under the direction of then president George H.W. Bush. I know it’s hard for you people to actually think but let’s try to get history right, OK!!!

    President Clinton didn’t take office until January 20th, 1993. Honestly, how gullible are you?

  4. Frank K says:

    hey dumba**

    national elections are held in November, as in November 1992.

    Bush the elder was president in August 1992. but I guess you get your history from books approved by the Texas board of education.

      Frank. You need to read the story again. There was absolutely no claim or connection in the story nor intent to blame Clinton for the incidents. We are quite aware of who was president and when. Do you assume I was blaming Kent State on Clinton? THAT WAS Nixon. Comprehension please

    *clinton and Janet reno were present at Waco*

    Idiots with zero reding comprehension: haha you’re so dumb, clinton wasn’t inaugurated as president yet!

    Okay, yet they were both on location, involved and added to the rhetoric.
    So much for that ‘gotcha mic drop*

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
