        Oh, I understood his sarcasm. I was thinking of the unironic original quote from Propaganda Central. 😊

    I remember what the Branch Davidians’ lawyer said, “It was all about gun parts.” It was all about converting rifles to fully automatic. We don’t have a problem with that in the US. If they are out there, people are keeping quiet about it.

      Absurd, people were murdered by the U.S. government there.

      Same with Ruby Ridge.

      Don’t have to agree with their beliefs; they weren’t hurting anyone.

        I had to think back to the times. Bill Clinton was President and Janet Reno was Attorney General. I think that they put too much faith in cops who wanted to play with their toys.

        Yep.

        And being a wymyn, Reno had to show just how tough a butch she was. 😉

        It was that. There is something from that time that I am reminded of, Elian Gonzalez. His mother died leaving Cuba and he was rescued and place with relatives in Florida. Janet Reno stuck to the rule of law and did not do the politically expedient thing. She saw that he was returned to his father in Cuba.The pictures looked bad.

        I supported returning the child to his father, fuzzie, but I was appalled at the gun-toting thugs and terrified child. When the NYTimes ran the picture on the front page of the smiling Elian instead of the terrified Elian, I consigned them to the ash heap of history. It was obvious they’d spin for the powers that be.
