I have not seen the McVeigh Tapes that recently aired on MSNBC, and hosted by Rachel Maddow. However, I am looking for the complete show to see for
myself if they try to politicize the events in OKC and the dastardly actions of Timothy McVeigh. Timothy McVeigh was a delusional coward and deserves
nothing but scorn and ridicule for his crimes. However, his story needs to be told objectively by those in the MSM without spin or political grand
standing. Show the people the facts and let the facts speak for themselves, and not an agenda of either the Republicans or Democrats. As of now,
people are practically frothing at the mouth, and even more so than when McVeigh carried out his crimes.
For the MSM to intentionally push an agenda and further fan the flames is counterproductive and irresponsible. However, I see both the Republicans and
the Democrats resorting to divisive tactics to pull apart Americans and demonize those who have views counter to how government is being administered
at the present time, or how a particular political is governing and legislating.
People are out of work, and government bailouts are being given to the very companies, corporations, and banks who brought on the economic woes to
begin with. They get saved and the little guy loses it all by losing jobs, homes, and economic stability. Then the American people spoke out against
the bailouts, and most recently Healthcare Reform, and they received nothing more than rhetoric and inaction by their elected representatives. Last
but not least, heavy taxes and inflation looms on the horizon as a result of deficit spending and government bailouts. Dark days are certainly on the
I can understand politicians being a divisive force, because that is how they get votes and support of a certain target demographic, however, the
MSM's purpose is to report both sides and remain fair and objective. However, those crucial elements are practically ignored. The MSM wears their
political affiliations on their sleeves and make no effort of even hiding it anymore. You can see certain political ideologies present on the major
networks whether it be Republican or Democrat. Their content and news coverage is laden with a political agenda of whichever side that network
supports. It is plain as day. However, it is dangerous when they go so far as to demonize one group of individuals and spin the facts, thus angering
protesters and political opposition groups.
If the irresponsibility continues in news coverage as it has up to this point, they are only going to make more Timothy McVeighs, Joe Stacks, and
other violent individuals who believe they have nothing to lose and their rights have been violated. One can only shake a stick at a dog for so long
until it finally bites. That is the dangerous game being played by both political parties and the MSM at this crucial time in American history.
Personally, by seeing their rhetoric I really feel they have no idea about how serious things are at the moment. They play this game at their own
peril, and the peril of the country as a whole.
