In Georgia a former enlisted member of the United States Air Force was arrested for interfering with the burning of the flag of the United States by a mob of so-called students.
Why should anyone make a fuss about burning our flag?
The burning of our flag is a symbolic act. As the flag represents us as a free people so does the destruction of the flag represent the destruction our nation and our way of life. Without question those perform the act of burning the flag are nihilists who would--given the means and opportunity--actually perform the act of murdering Americans in the worst way possible. But this isn’t simply a wishful thought on the part of a gang of collectivists. To our shame it had actually happened here in the United States. Today is the 22nd anniversary of the event commonly known as the Waco Massacre.
The local office of the BATF received a report of automatic weapons fire at the residence of Branch Davidians outside of Waco, Texas. No inquiry was made with the local law enforcement agencies. Nor did they as allowed under the current regulations send agents out to inspect the federally licenced firearms dealer residing on the site. And they could have arrested Koresh as he made his morning run but did not do so. With his past history of cooperation with local law enforcement they could have simply asked him to come down to the local sheriff’s station.
Instead they attempted to stage a military-style assault, code named Operation Showtime, in order to impart a positive impression of the agency upon the current administration in Washington. After the task force was driven off the Hostage Rescue Team of the FBI, descended upon the Branch Davidians and laid siege to the residence.
On this day 21 years ago The HRT used armored vehicles to destroy the exits from the building and to allow the wind to blow through it and then injected CS gas, known to be inflammable and toxic to children and elderly persons, into the wooden structure. HRT fired CS rounds, which are incendiary devices into, the building.
A tactic to commit mass murder used by the Nazis in Poland and Russia was to confine civilians, especially women and children, in wooden buildings and set the structures on fire.
To this day the perpetrators remain at large.
The other anniversary today is of the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.
Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the Oklahoma City bombing was a white racial collectivist and was acting out the white racial warrior martyrdom fantasy depicted in The Turner Diaries.
The novel, if I recall reading it correctly, depicts the conquest and subjugation of the white population of the United States by a self appointed elite group that called itself "The Order." All non-whites, including Jews, were exterminated. Any white person who refused to obey The Order was executed as a race traitor. The actions of The Order as depicted in the novel were very much like the practice of Islam without the claim of divine sanction. Unlike today's political Right, but like all known collectivists, such as the National Socialists of Germany, The Order rejected all of the Rights of Man and killed anyone who served no place in their collective.
Fortunately, I read it on a website where the text was posted. So apart from the fee for Internet access, I didn't have to pay a cent to read it. I would later describe the experience of reading it as being the intellectual equivalent of the act of swimming in raw sewage. The website and text is gone now. I think this is somewhat unfortunate because I believe that no rational person should have to pay a cent for the privilege of reading a book that calls for their own murder.
