McVeigh -- Neither Hero Nor Villain
by Angry White Female
I have followed the story of the Oklahoma City bombing very closely, as have many of you.
Many lessons can be learned if you turn off that Trotsky-vision and THINK about this with
the brains the Gods gave you rather than the images and sounds the controlled media feed
The FCC-dependent media, the government (and the lemmings they lead) need to have someone to
scapegoat for the actions of one frustrated former U.S. soldier. Hence, anyone to the right
of Joseph Stalin is suspect, a potential terrorist (or "rebel," depending on your
relationship with the U.S. government). Are these people really "paranoid conspiracy
theorists"? Hardly, but I do believe the government and their lapdog media are. Do you
remember the foaming hatred unleashed on "right-wingers" after the bombing? They publicly
pondered their own paranoid conspiracy theories about mountain men in shacks plotting
against democracy and assorted "militias" who believe in the constitution. They labeled as
"extremists" all who questioned the official line or implied that the government's informants
knew of the plan in advance. Now we are learning the "quacks and crazies" were correct in
many instances. It is not the "right-wingers" who are paranoid, it is they who have
delusions about anti-fed conspiracies hatched in cow fields and churches they call
"compounds." That kind of paranoia (encouraged by the so-called "watchdogs") is what led
them to massacre the people at Ruby Ridge and Waco. They were truly "paranoid," and that
fact has been exposed by the revelations that their initial justifications were either
totally off-base, half-true or based on delusions of right-wing conspiracies. Now their
paranoid actions have prompted a reaction, and finally they have fulfilled their own
prophecy predicting terrorism on U.S. soil.
The truth hurts...
Let us never forget Mr. McVeigh's use of the term "collateral damage" in reference to the
kids in the day care center. The lemmings were outraged. But as McVeigh stated, the U.S.
calls other people's children "collateral damage," such as the Serbian kids in the
Children's Hospital that they bombed. "We regret the collateral damage" they said. I
remember being outraged when they said that, just as the lemmings were when McVeigh said
it. But the lemmings don't make the same connection because the television didn't point it
out to them. Our government, after bombing the hospital, said the Serbian military was
"using children as shields." McVeigh said the same thing about the day care center in the
F.B.I. building. Instead of Saddam and Bin Laden, McVeigh's boogeymen were fellow domestic
terrorists Bill Clinton and Janet Reno. The only real difference was that the latter were
considered "authorities" and McVeigh was not. If McVeigh had been President and bombed
that phramaceutical plant in Sudan (after having been exposed as the recipient of
out-of-wedlock fellatio), the lemmings would have supported him too, provided he also
claimed Bin Laden was there. But Bin Laden was not there, and the American government felt
no remorse for the "collateral" damage that extended well beyond the immediate victims.
And the American people did not demand accountability, as usual.
The supreme irony is that McVeigh was doing what he learned in the U.S. military, and his
lack of conscience reflects that of those who direct our military to dole out the same kind
of fate to the nameless, faceless multitudes in countries our government doesn't like.
McVeigh believes (or believed, depending on when you read this) that the U.S. government
only understands the "language of force". Ah, that's another government soundbite to
justify atrocities against civilians. Atrocity? When does this government call bombings of
non-allied nations "atrocities?" When has our media zoomed in on "atrocities" in
non-allied nations the way they did after the recent the suicide bombing in the Israeli
nightclub? Come to think of it, when have their lapdog media even filmed the bloody
aftermath of the effects of U.S. made bombs dropped on refugee camps in occupied
Palestine? Iraqi children dying because of our sanctions? Serbs fleeing with their
children as the U.S. drops bombs on their Orthodox churches? Are these not also
Two minutes hate....
Two minutes hate is what Winston of 1984 used to describe the government-mandated
outpouring of pent-up lemming (whom he called "proles") anger. That is what we will see in
the next few weeks.
I do sympathize with the victims of the Oklahoma City blast. I just have a hard time with
reacting to it the way the establishment wants me to and an even harder time with being
told which lessons I should learn from it. The outpouring of emotion and anger surrounding
McVeigh's execution reminds me of those old movies where the English execute bad people in
front of the vengeful and ignorant peasants. The lemmings will all be glued to their TV
sets and breathe a sigh of relief that McVeigh won't be able to talk anymore. They'll vent
their pent-up frustrations at a government-approved target, McVeigh and those the government
and media try to link to his alleged "ideology." Yeah, we gotta root out that "anti-government"
thought for fear it could lead to another Oklahoma City bombing. They don't want to hear
the correlations made between the OKC bombing and drive-by bombings in Kosovo or Iraq.
They don't want to hear McVeigh say, "If the F.B.I. lost over 3,000 documents in my case,
what happens to the little guy?" They don't want to hear about all of the inconsistencies
and they especially don't want to entertain the thought that ATF informants knew this was
going to happen. If they listen to that kind of talk, they believe they are betraying the
memory of the victims. The same principle applies to World War II revisionism.
I feel like I am on the outside looking in at this Orwellian scene. It is so surreal. I
could write the script before it happens. People will do what is expected of them, hold a
candlelight vigil, cheer as he is euthanized and rail against those who criticize the U.S.
government (I never should have read those Orwell books). My fascination at their herd
mentality will prevent me from processing what the media tells me to think. The lemmings
want to show how "good" they are. But that goodness stops when the government and media
tell them sympathy is reserved only for Americans and allied nations. If the U.S.
government plants a bomb, you are not supposed to cry for the innocent victims, you are
supposed to rail against their leaders and blame them, the same way McVeigh blames the U.S.
These "on cue" Americans are of the same ilk as those who scream obscenities at
conscientious individuals who take to the streets to oppose American raids against small
and powerless nations and mourn for their "collateral damage." Show the "on cue" Americans
a flag and they fall into a hypnotic state. Kill a thousand foreign civilians and we are
supposed to worry about the guy who is dropping bombs on third-world nations from
sophistocated high-flying warplanes. I have personally seen these Ugly Americans' blinding
hypocrisy in action. I recall once when protesting the Kosovo war, a little Marine started
yelling at elderly Serbian refugees to go back home. These old folks (who suffered through
WWII and iron-fisted communism) have seen decades of unrest and bloodshed, and should have
NEVER been treated that way. This little low-IQ SHIT who wore a Marines uniform hasn't
known that kind of suffering and hardship and probably never even considered what it would
be like to live your entire life in the state of war on your own soil. This little SHIT
didn't consider that many of these people had family members over there. I was enraged at
his arrogance and hatred. He seemed genuinely suprised that this American woman would
scream obscenities right back into his his face in defense of these long-suffering
The lemmings will dismiss any non-conventional thought surrounding the "blinding hypocrisy"
issue as the ranting of an "extremist." What they don't realize is today's labelers were
yesterday's extremists. They are now the establishment, and the lemmings, as they always
have, will MOO ON CUE with the rest of the herd. Thank Odin we are not all lemmings,
otherwise, civilizations would have never been built and we would still be a flat-earth
Reflecting on the real lessons...
To me, Timothy McVeigh is neither hero nor villain. I have thought much about this. I
don't see him a model of resistance and I don't see him as evil incarnate. Why? Because
he at least shed a few tears in court when the children were mentioned. But those
operating the U.S. government don't take responsibility, let alone shed a tear for their
collateral damage. Perhaps they would if we put them on trial and described, in detail,
the consequences of their actions. The bombing of the Murrah building opened my eyes to
the sufferings of other people, and it has made me a more "compassionate racist." I
learned a tough lesson about my own personal hypocrisy through McVeigh's actions. But when
the U.S government pulls a McVeigh overseas, I learn nothing except that ugly Americans
feel no compassion for people their government tells them are "bad." I will not play that
game, nor will I conform to societal norms of politically correct thoughts. I will take
from this a very different lesson from the lemmings (get dem right-wingers). I feel awful
for the families of the clerical staff and children who died in the Oklahoma City bombing.
But I will always wonder why the ATF took that fateful weekday off and why none of their
children died that day. I will wonder what happened to the lady who said she saw (on the
air, minutes after the blast) the bomb squad in her parking lot a few blocks away BEFORE
the blast. I will wonder if Carol Howe, BATF informant, was really a nutcase or if the
government really was informed this was going to happen. I will reflect on the innocent
victims from David Koresh's multi-racial commune and the children who burned to death in
there at the hands of the ATF. I will reflect on the victims of the Ruby Ridge massacre,
now dismissed as "White supremacists." I will be enraged every time this government
callously calls dead foreign children "collateral damage." I will never allow this
government to tell me who my enemies are, I will make that choice for myself. I don't
beieve in violence, but permit me to pray that they too will be euthanized someday for
their atrocities. And that will be the image in my mind as McVeigh takes his final
And the mooers can take that out to pasture and chew on it.
