Leader of effort in support of ranching family charged with arson: "The people have been abused enough."

Ammon Bundy chats with a protester Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016, during a march on behalf of a Harney County ranching family in Burns, Ore. Bundy, the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a standoff with the government over grazing rights, told The Oregonian that he and two of his brothers were among a group of dozens of people occupying the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

    Standard AgitProp (AP) fare.

    On the one hand, why would theStream re-post such drivel?
    On the other …… in order to showcase the sad state of mainstream media.
    ” A judge ruled [the Hammonds’] terms were too short … ”
    —-> due to pressure from the DOJ

    ” … controversy in a remote part of the state. ”
    ” … touched a nerve with far right groups … ”
    ——–> e.g. NOT ultra liberal ‘ progressive’ intellectual Portland
    ——–> just some backwater lowbrows who vote against their own interests
    Stark contrast to the far-left occupation of the Wisconsin statehouse in 2011.
    AgitProp was right there, arm-linked in the proletariat fight for social justice,
    cheerleading for the poor oppressed unions as part of the …
    ‘ peaceful and united front while we work through the situation …’

    Well ! I happen to be in support of this type of activity. I firmly believe that this will be the only way we will ever take back our nation from foreign powers, that direct the infiltrators who have seized power over us. We are in a hostile takeover of our nation,and having happened after our nations males have been demasculinized, purposefully in order to accomplish the UN goals. What makes me have this view is that I know what is happening, while most of American demasculinized males have no interest. We are in grave danger here. The Communist agitators have been hard at work, and they made well thought out decisions, & carried them out, all while we have been sleeping. They made agreements with others who would enter the fray, and through their combined strength, they are coming after this nations Christian members. They are not after those who will not resist , and the Homosexuals and Atheist’s are among their partners. Islamic nations were purposefully agitated in order to create a body of Muslim fighters. Islam has only needed a little push to stir them to try to create a new Caliphate. We are dealing with all who hate Christianity. We are going to be fighting AntiChrist, and AntiChrist’s useful idiots. In America we have the constitutional right to defend ourselves, and tear down this tyrannical government. Especially when it is no longer our government, but an usurped government ran by monetary theft, by strategies put in place by foreign powers. People our government is hijacked by out constitutions enemies. We had soon come to know where we stand, and prepare for armed conflict. We are either going to be made slaves, after being herded into detainment camps, or we are going to see the writing on the wall, and fight evil. I hate evil.
