Oklahoma Democratic chairman says Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh would be member of tea party were he alive today
He overlooks the fact that conservatives generally and the Tea Partiers in particular are in fact IN FAVOR of government: Constitutional government. Unlike Obama and his ilk, American conservatives have great reverence for the Constitution. But there are lawless murderers and terrorists by the millions on the Left. Just look back on the regimes of some of the self-described "socialists" of the 20th century: Stalin, Hitler, Mao etc.

The chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party is refusing to back down from comments he made that likened convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh to tea party activists.
"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," Collins said Tuesday. "They dislike the government. I don't know if you'd call them a government hater, but I certainly see them in a similar vein. Maybe they're an offshoot or offspring or next generation."
