How Timothy McVeigh's Ideals Entered the Mainstream

Via comment by Anonymous on The Waco Killing Fields Massacre II: A premeditat...


Republican presidential candidates gathered last month at the Oklahoma City Cox Conference Center, just a few blocks from the site of what was the Alfred R. Murrah Federal Building. Two decades ago, anti-government militia sympathizer Timothy McVeigh blew it up in what he called an act of war against the U.S. government. It was the worst crime of domestically bred terrorism in American history. McVeigh was executed in 2001, but since then, some of his militia ideals have gone mainstream and even been introduced as laws in many states, including Oklahoma.

More @ Newsweek


  1. Typical of Newsweek. Trying to tie legitimate political discussion about the proper role of government to psychopathic murder. There never was any "militia" movement in this country back in the 90's that was more than a weekend drinking and shooting club. It was certainly not violent and no threat to anyone or any institution. Typical of Newsweek to try to revive the shadow of it to bolster their own view that anti-progressives are all murdering sociopaths.

    1. Ain't the Newsweek I read every week in Vietnam, that's for sure. Commies seem to be in control of most everything these days.

  2. oh, and McViegh couldn't get into a militia. They didn't want his crazy ass around either. So he never had an "militia ideals".

  3. BS. The FBI was involved in this atrocity. ATF office was closed, ATF children
    who used the day care in the building did not go, witnesses across the street
    in another building saw the FBI out front prior to the explosion, ATF was storing explosives, bombs, and other weaponry in the building which was prohibited and McVeigh riding around in a vehicle without a tag - please.
