YALL QAEDA SEIZURE OF BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT FACILITY IN OREGON BEARS OUT THE TERRORISM DOUBLE STANDARD IN AMERICA
I read just recently a post Facebook post by Janet Shaffer of Southside Beach, South Carolina who makes a clearheaded argument of just what the seizure of a building at the Bureau of Land Management’s outpost at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by so called “patriots” lead by Ammon Bundy in response to the return to prison of two ranchers found guilty of arson on federal land. Shaffer states, “This meets all legal definitions of a terrorist act. Unfortunately, people will probably die over this, but the government cannot allow armed occupation of even a trivial gift shop. They want to support the ranchers, so they should raise money for an appeal lawyer or try to peacefully lobby for a change in the laws. These ranchers had their day in court and lost. Guns and protests should not mix.”
The response to Shaffer from one commenter got me thinking. Eric Urquidi, of Simi Valley, California had this to say, “Maybe because not one building has been destroyed, not one vehicle set on fire or broken in to. Not even a damn candy bar was stolen. American citizens occupying American citizen owned land. Our tax dollars manage it, or tax dollars built the building.. and now black lives matter are mad because now they look like a bunch of Fucking goons. Can’t even have a protest without stealing some Shit on the way through town. This is the start of something big. This is how you do it.”
So by Mr Urquidi’s logic if a group of armed Muslims occupied the National Cathedral when it was unoccupied and decided they were going to stay there until two Muslims were released from prison and that Muslims could worship there as they wished this would be seen as the same sort of “patriotic” protest? And here is the root of my problem with what is going on in Burns, Oregon. This has nothing to do with the Hammond family or the crimes they committed; this is about the desire to get white American conservatives to finally come to the event that sparks the “revolution” these religious far right militia people have wanted since Ruby Ridge.
The anger that the Bundys have for government goes back generations to Cliven Bundy’s father David Ammon Bundy who was run out of a town he built because he was not granted the right to water on federal land. Now it is the time for David Bundy’s grandson, Ammon Bundy, to raise the flag of “Captain Moroni” and fight the federal government. This is what is happening by one hundred or so heavily armed people in Burns, Oregon. One member has already told the press that he is willing to die at Malheur and I can’t imagine he is the only ultrafanatic in a group of fanatics. This is about far more than a case at law or even the rights of the people. This is about a lust for martyrdom by a fringe group of white people who see no other means by which to regain power they feel was taken from them by the federal government. Sadly, this was power that they never had in the first place.
Now, all Americans can do is sit and watch and wait, just like me to see just how stupid these people are. I hope the weather makes their declaration that they could stay there for years an impossibility. The forecast for this week is very cold and heavy snow tomorrow.
