Wingnut Militiamen Seize Government Building In Oregon (VIDEOS)

2aa9cb66aeb8db3102c9de8460cd21c4f497e62cThe Bundys are back. You probably remember them from the Nevada standoff with the Feds over daddy Clive’s freeloading cows grazing on BLM property. The Feds backed off on that one, because they didn’t want bloodshed. BIG MISTAKE! That has just encouraged these troglodytes to continue their crusade against the government. Burns_OR

This time they’ve occupied the headquarters of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, 30 miles south of Burns, a back country burg in eastern Oregon.

Their cause du jour is preventing two Burns area ranchers, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46 from going to prison after being convicted of arson.

According to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s office,

The arson occurred shortly after Steven Hammond and his hunting party illegally slaughtered several deer on BLM property…Steven Hammond handed out “Strike Anywhere” matches with instructions that they be lit and dropped on the ground because they were going to “light up the whole country on fire….The fire consumed 139 acres of public land and destroyed all evidence of the game violations.

The Hammonds are supposed to surrender to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons on Monday (1/4/16) to start serving a five year sentence. The’ve stated that they fully intend to surrender themselves on Monday, however that hasn’t deterred wing-nut militia morons from trying to interfere.

Militia members have been arriving for the last few weeks, strolling around Burns with their hog legs strapped on and questioning citizens that voiced criticism. Among those ammosexual idiots are the Bundy boys, Ammon and his two brothers.

The militia has been demanding the the local sheriff grant the Hammonds sanctuary. The sheriff has naturally refused.

Last Friday evening, (1/1/16) a local resident organized a meeting between area residents and the militia. About 60 people attended the meeting including a number of armed militia members. Confrontational at times, the meeting ended with an agreement that a peaceful rally might be the best way to handle it. According to a report on the Oregonian newspaper’s web site,

The meeting ended with handshakes and and then more conversations outside with cigarettes in the 7-degree weather.

Saturday, about 300 people marched through Burns to protest the prosecution of the Hammonds. Arriving at the local court house, they threw pennies, because they were “buying back their government to serve the people.”

However, that didn’t end the protest. After the march and the “purchase,” the Bundy bozos along with some ‘Murican “patriots” drove to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to occupy the headquarters. The “patriots” claim they are 150 strong, but by all evidence, that’s a lie. An Oregon Public Broadcasting stringer, who was at the march/rally says the real number is between 6 & 12. Other local citizens said the number may be as high as 15.Untitled

Ammon, who seems to be the main mouth of the occupation, stated,

The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds. We’re planning on staying here for years, absolutely. This is not a decision we’ve made at the last minute.

They are demanding that the Hammonds be released from having to go to prison and the government relinquish control of the Malheur National Forest, north of Burns.
The best possible outcome is that the ranchers that have been kicked out of the area, then they will come back and reclaim their land, and the wildlife refuge will be shut down forever and the federal government will relinquish such control. What we’re doing is not rebellious. What we’re doing is in accordance with the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land.

Another militiaman, Blane Cooper, added,

Until that line is drawn and say ‘we’ve had enough of this tyranny, you are going to leave us alone’ it will not change...It doesn’t have to stop here. This could be a hope that spreads through the whole country, the whole United States. Everybody’s looking for this hope because the government has beat us, and oppressed us, and took everything from us; they will not stop until we tell them no.

Ammon said that he had tried unsuccessfully tried to enlist local residents to join the occupation, but was turned down.
We went to the local communities and presented it many times and to many different people. They were not strong enough to make the stand. So many individuals across the United States and in Oregon are making this stand. We hope they will grab onto this and realize that it’s been happening

He claimed that the occupiers would fight and die if necessary.

Another militiaman, Jon Ritzheimer, seemed to think he wouldn’t survive the occupation. (Or maybe he’s just a drama queen.)

Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward has asked everyone to avoid the area as authorities work to defuse the situation.

A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution. For the time being please stay away from that area. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation.

However, Ammon put out a call on his Facebook page for reinforcements. Other militia morons, such as Dave Acton, are actively encouraging a confrontation.
