I've gotten some blistering hate mail in my box from my comments about
David Koresh being a pedophile.
I suppose by archaic standards and by the standards of the Islamic
world, David Koresh may not have been a pedophile. Many of his "brides
of the Lamb" were very, very young by American standards...12 and up.
And they were wives in every sense of the word...Koresh fucked them.
Nobody talks about how horribly persecuted Jim Jones and Jonestown
was. And yet, David Koresh did the very same thing. His lieutenants
doused his compound with gasoline and set the compound ablaze for the
self-immolation Koresh often told his followers they would suffer for
the "Kingdom of Heaven's" sake.
In the case of the initial raid...the BATF and the FBI fucked up, big
time. Their handling of this and other situations was ham-fisted and
stoooooopid. But stoooopid doesn't mean malicious. I am no fan of
either Louis Freeh or Janet Reno...but their actions and the actions
of the departments they head are the actions of idiots, not of wily
conspirators. For one thing, at Ruby Ridge, the sniper fucked up so
badly that instead of hitting his target, he hit his target's pregnant
wife. Yet another example of idiotic decisions.
But that doesn't excuse the megalomania of an obvious mind-control
cult leader with a death wish and a wish to take everyone else with
him. I have dealt with mind-control cults in the past. Let's just say
I *earned* the SP4 designation I have the right to, but don't use, in
alt.religion.scientology.xenu. And I have had brushes with other
I am no fan of the US guh-mint. It's got some serious reforming to do,
and the "Money Trail" follies expose a lot of what needs to be
reformed. However, that doesn't mean that I have to embrace a cult
leader who used mind control techniques, had a death wish, and led his
flock into a firey death. David Koresh was as bad as Jim Jones, "Ron,"
that retard Applewhite and his "Heaven's Gate" doofuses, Charles
Manson and others of their like. If you need someone to blame for
Waco, blame the feds for making stoopid moves, but most of all BLAME
KORESH. He knew what he was doing.
And certainly, none of this warranted the blast at Oklahoma City. None
of this warranted the act of a few cowardly men who think that they
are American heroes. None of this warranted babies being crushed to
death by flying concrete.
Think about it.
