That was a very dangerous confrontation. The feds backed off because they knew ....civil war.

Yep, they could easily deal with them, but not the millions of others and no more country to keep funding them. Although they did get away with Waco but that was before the internet.

They didn't get away with Waco.

Two years to the day after the Federal Government burned down Mount Carmel, Timothy McVeigh set off three and a half tons of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, specifically in a building occupied by the DEA and ATF.

They didn't get away with anything.

The feds backed off because everyone at the confrontation understood one thing: If so much as one man had an itchy trigger finger then a shit-ton of people would have died, including the blm wackos.

It's called a stand off for a reason. If it were just one dude with a rifle, versus all of the feds, the feds wouldn't have hesitated to blow a hole in his wig.

I believe they call the concept acceptable losses.

Everyone should watch the documentary Waco: The Rules of Engagement. It's a must see for every citizen.

How do people remember OKC which happened a year later? And why are the Feds always so jumpy every anniversary on that date they created?

How did that end, and how does everyone remember it?

It ended two years later, when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in direct retaliation for th ATF attack on Mount Carmel. Being from Oklahoma, you might remember it.

The Federal Government absolutely remembered it.

Turns out the zombie apocalypse won't be caused by a virus of the flesh, but a memetic virus of the mind.

Stop food distribution into the cities for 3 days and zombie herds will come flooding out.

I am too, but, you wanna know something? It's going to happen anyway. I'd MUCH rather die with a gun in my hand, than die at 92 years old, shitting my pants, and gasping for breath like some pathetic animal. At least in the case of Day of the Rope, I'd die fighting for something that mattered more than a social security check and the Denny's Senior Menu.

The liberal (mindset, individual) is not the enemy here! The conforming executive branch is the direct offender in this case. Propped up by liberal campaigns that somehow discourage liberty, yet buttressed by their own convictions, these licensed killers made a smart, brave, choice to back down from this group of freedom fighters. History will show these individuals to have shown restraint as a virtuous quality.

The Liberal label was stolen from the British Enlightenment by Marxists whose goal is to subvert our system of government. List off the core facets of British Enlightenment Liberalism, and you'll find that the modern Liberal agrees with none of them, as those elements align perfectly with the U.S. Bill of Rights. Fact is, we're technically the liberals.

The government could easily crush them, but decided not to for the sake of how it would look. These people think it would look good for the government to do it anyway.

Yup. The Bundy Standoff.

RIP those who were shot to death.
