Wrong... That's not what happened with Ruby Ridge.
The entire incident started with Randy Weaver being entrapped for allegedly selling a shotgun. Then for some unknown reason a gang of FBI agents acting like some sort of military unit invaded his property and Weavers son grabbed a gun and started shooting at the invaders, which cost the kid his life, and before the incident was over Weaver lost his son, wife and a friend in the incident.
Then the FBI trying to justify their actions tried to portray Weaver as a member of the KKK which didn't work out for the FBI because everyone called bull****.
As far as I'm concerned Janet Reno belongs in prison....
Lets also not forget Waco either - the FBI only smashed buildings in their compound with tanks and lit the place on fire murdering people.
The FBI had no business whatsoever being involved in either incident - and the only reason why they were was because they wanted to flex their muscles against families and individuals who want nothing to do with their authoritarian government.
BTW, Randy Weaver sued the government and won...
Can't wait for the CON screams about another 'WACO' to start puking up...
Now imagine a small group of Muslim Americans had been using federal lands/buildings for 20 some years rent free even as a series of court orders told them to desist. Imagine that when the feds FINALLY move in to evict these free loading bums an Islamic 'militia' shows up from outside the state, armed and proclaiming they are there to fight to Government. Go on TV saying they will put women to the front, and be on film as occupying prone, bipod supported overwatch positions.
Would the CONs still be supportive and sling claims of 'another Ruby Ridge setting up' ????
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
