One hundred, sixty-eight people, killed when a truck bomb blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Six hundred others injured. Their “mistake” was to be working for or having business with the United States government.
That was 15 years ago Monday. Only a week ago, tea party members and conservative legislators were buzzing about the idea of establishing a “militia” to defend Oklahoma against federal tyranny.
Bomber Timothy McVeigh no doubt would have smiled at the idea.
Got that? Tea party = Timothy McVeigh.
