Politics: Bill Clinton on OKC bombing anniversary: Don’t demonize leaders

  • Criticism is part of the lifeblood of democracy. No one is right all the time. But we should remember that there is a big difference between criticizing a policy or a politician and demonizing the government that guarantees our freedoms and the public servants who enforce our laws.
  • Former President Bill Clinton • In an op-ed piece that ran in today’s New York Times. Clinton wrote the piece to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City federal building bombing, an act of domestic terrorism which in some ways still offers vibrant lessons today. Clinton has been espousing these concerns for a few days, but (no matter your political party) they come from the right place. source
