Dems Says Bachmann Inspiring Tim McVeigh II
Fox News ^ | 4/15/10 | staff

Posted on 04/15/2010 9:41:00 AM PDT by reaganrevolutionin2010

Democrats, including Rep. Betty McCollum, launched into an assault on incivility Tuesday, saying incendiary words from members of Congress were inflaming tensions that could provoke another incident of Oklahoma City-style domestic terrorism.

"When Members of Congress compare health-care legislation to ‘government tyranny,’ ‘socialism,’ or ‘totalitarianism’ — in the hopes of scoring political points — it's like pouring gas on the fire of extremism," McCollum said.

McCollum's St. Paul office was one of a few that received an envelope containing gasoline-soaked tatters of an American flag and a letter that called her things not fit for print in this or any publication. Several police departments, including St. Paul and the Capitol Police, are investigating.

"The members of this House — Democrats and Republicans — have a duty and an obligation to end the dangerous name-calling that can only inspire the extremist militias and phony patriots," McCollum said. "In the most free, prosperous and greatest democracy on earth it is time to return to a civil, decent debate of public policy."

"I don’t want another 'Oklahoma City' to ever take place again," McCollum said. "Just as we would not give aid and comfort to al-Qaida, let us not allow the words of elected leaders give comfortable excuses to extremists bent on violence."

And Al Gore was a key influence on the work of the Unabomber. What’s her point?

Anyone who has read any of Tim McVeigh’s writing knows that he would have been far more comfortable at an ANSWER rally than a tea party.

Well, maybe. But it's also telling the truth.

I notice MSNBC is running a Maddow special with McVeigh interviews. They are doing their best to associate him with Tea Party members. That’s all they got. Seeing as how there have been numerous Tea Parties and no violence, I think they are wasting their time.

It's a far uglier period of history than what the Left calls "McCarthyism" and "The Red Scare".

The evil sister of Michelle Bachmannn in the district next to her. The polar opposite, a shrill frump who if she was not connected enough to get elected would be a checkout girl at the St. Paul Whole Foods with a bone through her nose and a 40 year BF who played in “Band”. Liberals are truly Mental Midgets, and our universities are pumping out 100s of thousands of ready little socialists who are on the intellectual level of this idiot and a chimp.

Well mzzzz McCollum, when members of one party do a cram down of socialism against the majority wishes of the country it could be like pouring gasoline on the fire of freedom. Geez, does that sound like anyone we know Mzzzz McCollum. Damn, it sucks to be you McCollum.

Incendiary words?

That article title is wrong. Should have said, ‘Idiot compares Tea Party to Al Quada’.

They are the ones with the inflammatory rhetoric and the thugs to intimidate. These people are terrified.

Really? Then can the dems stop calling me a rich, white, over 45 year old, redneck because I agree with the Tea Party? How about you stop calling me racist because I don't like Obama? I mean... it couldn't possibly be that I don't agree with higher taxes right? No... I don't like him because... He's black?

And as far as domestic terrorists... LOOK AT THE GOVERNMENT! Our own government is the best example of domestic terrorism.

Democrats are the most uncivil bastards this country has seen.

The attack on Bachman alone is uncivil.

According to them everyone who opposesm high taxes and the takeover of business is a racist terrorist.

This is not new the left has always thought of most Americans this way.

The very idea of constitutional government makes these people lose their minds.

The only acts of violence being committed are being committed by DNC and the Left.

Of course when Al Gore literally screamed that “George Bush betrayed us,” he was simply speaking to the better angels of human nature. Nobody would ever take what The Great Fulminator said as being incendiary. And when various liberal Black and White speakers called Bush a racist after Katrina, that was not in the least provocative. Hypocrites all.

When liberals scream for violence, that’s just free speech. When conservatives hint that the government is exceeding its charter — a protest with a venerable and respected history in this country — they are advocating terrorism.

No double standard at work here.

-- What's her point? --

I think she's saying that there are some Democrats who are so angry, that they will resort to terrorism in order to make their point. The terrorism is going to be directed against that part of the public who has been taxed enough already.

Opposition to Democrats is TERRORISM, just like opposition to the Nazi’s was.

The left has much more the fear from a Bachman than a McVey. He was an evil flash in the pan. She would destroy them, by revealing who and what they are, and destroying their legislative accomplishments.

And what the hell are Dems inspiring? The take over of the US by subrogation of the Constitution to a Marxist way... no thank you! McVeigh was a loner and accomplished only evil... we are America and will struggle against all evil, including subversives like the Socialist Democratic Party. We will struggle within the bounds of the law, but if the law becomes unlawful, we will struggle within the bounds of natural law, that is the rights the constitution acknowledges are ours from God. We are not deluded, though, the civil war instructs us as to what can happen in the history of man upon this soil.

WRONG!!! This bunch of thugs that is stealing and dismantling this country as we KNEW it will be the cause of any action of that sort. They are not listening to the majority. Those in power steal and rig our votes (ACORN) in order to stay in power. Those actions invite a backlash response, what ever that is. It’s the old Pot and Kettle scenario, basically, it is their call.
