|Look What The Jack Booted Federal Thugs Did|
From the LVRJ: From near and wide, armed men are trickling toward Cliven Bundy’s ranch, where the embattled rancher’s fight with the federal government has become a rallying cry for militia groups across the United States.
On Wednesday, that dispute teetered at the edge of deadly conflict, when Cliven Bundy’s family members and supporters scuffled with rangers from the Bureau of Land Management sent to protect the ongoing federal roundup of Bundy’s cattle on public land. One of Bundy’s seven sons was shot with a stun gun, and Bundy’s sister was knocked to the ground, but no one was seriously hurt and no arrests were made.
By late Wednesday, three militia members — two from Montana and one from Utah — had arrived at the ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Other militia groups have inundated the Bundy household with calls and pledges to muster at the site. Their stated goal: to protect the Bundys from tyranny.
They say they are prepared for armed confrontation, but they insist if bloodshed happens, they will not be the instigators.
Ryan Payne and Jim Lardy, members of the West Mountain Rangers, made the 12-hour drive from western Montana on Tuesday night. Payne is also a coordinator with Operation Mutual Aid, a national association that describes itself as a coalition of state militias.
“They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne said in an interview at the ranch.
Payne didn’t put a specific estimate on how many militia members may come, but he said the groups expected are from places like New Hampshire, Texas,and Florida and could number in the hundreds.
“We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” he said. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”
Payne, 30, and Lardy, 49, both wore holstered handguns as they spoke, but they downplayed the display of firepower. They wear their weapons daily....
Serious bloodshed was narrowly avoided earlier in the day, when a BLM ranger shot Ammon Bundy with a stun gun during a heated confrontation a few miles from the ranch house.
A video posted to YouTube shows a group of angry protesters and law enforcement officers yelling and threatening each other as trucks involved in the roundup attempt to drive through. The officers have their stun guns drawn and one is trying to push the crowd back with a barking dog on a leash.
Cheryl Teerlink, who witnessed the altercation, said Ammon Bundy was hit by a stun gun in the arm, chest and neck, but he shook off the first attempt to incapacitate him. “I pulled the tasers out of him,” she said.
I don't agree with Bundy on this issue because he has not been paying rent, even a token rent for his cattle on the Federalland.
However, I do agree with him and his followers that the Feds have way too much land in Nevada and the Feds are abusing their powers by saying removing the cattle to protect some stupid tortoise.
In other cases, governments, local and the Feds are stealing people's land and homes just because the governments want some open space.
We are slowly getting to the point where we will see armed revolt like we have seen in other parts of the world... like Ukraine.
No, I am not totally blaming Obama- this has been brewing for a long time, before Obama. But before, it was the liberals who were threatening violence.
But we are getting closer and loser to an armed revolt against the U.S. government and I am getting closer and closer in supporting it.
