From the Huffington Post:
A group of gunmen seized control of an empty federal building in remote Burns, Oregon, on Saturday, announced they planned to occupy the facility for “years” and called for “patriots” to join them — and bring more guns. The men now occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building include at least two sons of Cliven Bundy, the rancher whose legal battle with the government over grazing rights culminated in an armed standoff with federal authorities near Bunkerville, Nevada, in 2014.
“We’re planning on staying here for several years,” Ammon Bundy said in a video posted to Facebook Saturday. “We’re calling people to come out here and stand…. We have a place for you to stay warm. We have food planned and prepared. We need you to bring your arms. And we need you to come to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.” His brother Ryan Bundy told The Oregonian’s Ian Kullgren the militiamen are “willing to kill and be killed if necessary,” Kullgren tweeted Saturday.
I am also reminded of the situation when AIM took over possession of Alcatraz Island in an effort to publicize the plight of the original Americans … despite being immigrants themselves. My question is: why is this new batch of well-armed terrorists holding what is actually a empty building hostage? What are their demands? What is the point?
But it’s still true: if they were black or muslim they would already be dead and laying cold on a slab.
