Democrats at all levels are digging in desperation for anything they can. Recently, the Oklahoma State Democratic Chairman Wallace Collins made a statement that if Timothy McVeigh was alive today, he’d be a member of the TEA Party. After being rightly criticized by people associated with the TEA Party, he dug in deeper and refused to apologize. Here is his statement:
“I certainly stand by my remarks, because it’s widely known that McVeigh was anti-government. I think that he was a right-winger, and I think the current tea party people, while I’m not saying that they’re proposing violence, they’re anti-government.”
A mild walk-back maybe, but apparently he is too ignorant to know what he’s talking about. The TEA Party may be at a crossroad struggling to navigate a course (I wrote about this subject here), but never has it been anti-government. It has been for smaller, more efficient government that operates by the principles and guidelines that were laid out by the Founding Fathers.
Personally, I think it’s a joke to make someone apologize. It’s not sincere, when they do. But I am for taking their words and using them against them at every possible chance. I just think it’s best to let people like Wallace Collins wallow in his own ignorance and stupidity, while his hypnotized sheep follow him off of the proverbial cliff.
