28. Exactly, also anti-Clinton propaganda.

People need to look at historical context when critiquing things like the Crime Bill, Waco, Jewell etc. Crime and violence from the 70s-90s was out of control, at historical highs, thus the tendency for politicians was to err on the side "being tough" and protecting kids and communities. The Clinton admin also had to deal with the rise of the militia movement, cults and other RW extremism, along with typical crime. They also had to combat the idea that Dems were weak on crime. They did a great job overall, considering the circumstances.
