There was no gun fight at Waco, it was simply an unlawful seige by Janet REno’s thugs, and only her thugs did any firing, this has been proven.
Jerks think that they can call anyone that they wish to marginalize a “wackadoodle cult,” but this is still a constitutional republic, and beliefs are to be respected.
Waco is the quintessential perfect comparison; much more so than Ruby Ridge was; that was done in secret for the most part.
You really did give yourself away on this.
“Beliefs are to be respected”?
What beliefs? Polygamy with 13 year old girls and other men’s wives? You respect that? You think that should be legal?
No, sorry, I don’t respect those beliefs, and I’m a pretty squishy libertarian. You can be anti-government tyranny without signing on to support sexual abuse. You’d have a hard time selling Branch Dividian ideas in San Francisco. Or anywhere west of Mecca.
I don’t know how this conversation got so derailed, but if you’re looking to win the Best Conservative Evah trophy by dropping the Waco Truther card, then consider the game yours. I’ll wear the Damn Dirty RINO hat if the alternative is the Alex Jones crown.
