Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward is asking the militia group in Oregon, Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, to leave. This past Saturday, the group seized the main office building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which is primarily a bird sanctuary. The militia group is led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, sons of Clive Bundy, the Nevada rancher who was involved in a dispute with the federal government′s Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the Department of the Interior back in 2014. They claim that the seizure of the bird sanctuary in Oregon is in response to the resentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son team of ranchers. They were convicted of starting a brush fire which accidentally burned some 127 acres of federal land. The Hammonds, ages 73 and 46, were originally sentenced to serve three months in jail, but a federal judge claimed that this was well below federal sentencing guidelines. So both men were resentenced to serve one year and have turned themselves in.
The militia group says that they will occupy the bird refuge until the Hammonds are released and until the federal land in dispute is turned back over to ′the people′. Or, at least to the state governments. Federal agencies are now involved in the standoff with the FBI in charge. After four days of the siege, the Oregon Cattlemen′s Association is now also involved, requesting that the militia group disband themselves and go home. Sheriff Ward says that the group is no longer welcome in his community, as if they ever were in the first place! Even the Hammonds want the militiamen to go away. They already turned themselves in to authorities at the San Pedro Federal Prison in California. The Hammonds say that they intend to appeal their case directly to Barack Obama and request a full pardon.
We can argue the merits and details all day long, but it does not really matter. This militia group are a bunch of kooks! For starters, they still think that the Constitution is worth fighting and dying for. That is their first mistake! If they were smart, they would just go home and prepare for the coming collapse of Western Civilization. Dedicate themselves to peaceful pursuits, like learning how to make do without electricity. Being ranchers, they already have the food-thing down, but what about good water sources? Have they built any rain-catches or filtering-distilling equipment? This is the time to make the most of learning skills needed to survive and thrive after The Great Culling so their descendents will one day build the starships which will conquer the galaxy. Not to be confused with the alternative universe of The Great Un-Cucking which would follow the election of Donald J. trump as our next President of these United States of America. On the other hand, if they are so hell-bent on saving the Constitution, inspired by The Great One – Mark Levin, maybe they will be caught up in the Un-Cucking of America? If so, then these militia guys would appear to be more closely related to Cuckservatives than to Neo-Reactionaries.
