On April 19, 1995 Timothy McVeigh attacked the United States, by detonating a truck bomb, in the worst single case of domestic terrorism in U.S. history. The attack took place in Oklahoma City 15 years ago today.
Former President Bill Clinton during a recent interview said he thought the heated rhetoric of the so-called Tea Party movement and like minded TV and radio hosts could lead to another Oklahoma City type attack.
I tend to agree with the former President. It only takes one right-wing nut to pull off a major attack. Especially with so much info online about bomb making and weaponry. And yet the threat of such an attack prompted by the hate speech of people like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin doesn't seem to be enough of a bother to the Tea Party adherents to dial back their violent rhetoric.
It's clear that the biggest and loudest voices of the Tea Party movement are just chasing money. They really have no concern for their fellow Americans because if they did they would remember what happened when a lone nut with a grudge against the government parked a truck bomb outside a Federal building and blew it up killing 160 American citizens and injuring at least 660.
If another Oklahoma City happens and the terrorist says he was motivated by Palin or Limbaugh or Fox News or the Tea Party, then what will they say?
