Conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter declared that Barack Obama’s “civilian national security force” would likely result in “a lot more Waco raids.”
The reference was to the February 1993 raid by federal agents on the Branch Davidian ranch near Waco and the subsequent siege, which left 86 dead, including four agents.
During Coulter’s appearance on Bob Grant’s radio show on Nov. 5, Grant played a portion of Obama’s July 2 speech in Colorado:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Grant asked: “Ann, what do you make of that?”
Coulter replied: “Sounds like there’s gonna be a lot more Waco raids, Elian Gonzalez snatchings.
“I don’t know, I don’t know. I mean, I think Obama is a frightening candidate. We’ll see.”
Several days before the election, Coulter — whose most recent book is “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans” — called Obama a “Marxist” and told Newsmax that his presidency and “a far-left Congress” would be a “total disaster” for the average American family.
