The Bundy Militia sure knows how to monopolize media attention.
Juliette Kayyem at CNN, among others, says this latest Bundy Militia action amounts to terrorism.
Personally, I think that’s a bit of a stretch. If prior experience can be used as a guide, the Bundy Militia will continue to monopolize media attention for a while, negotiate a settlement with the authorities. and walk away scot-free with another victory notched on their handgrips.
Is this an act of treason, do you think? How is it that a group can invade U.S. land, solely occupy it, and defend their occupation with threat of violence toward law enforcement and U.S. military, and not be viewed as enemies of the United States? It looks a lot like an act of war against the federal government. This, because two people committed arson and they don’t like the minimum sentence given to them? And, they hold a grudge because they can’t use land they don’t own free of charge? That’s not how America works. They are anti-patriots. I don’t understand the tolerance of these acts.
Treason? I don’t know…
What we’re calling the Oregon Gunmen, from WaPo here, based on what appears in 15 “major news outlets” surveyed by Christopher Ingraham.
“Oregon” gunmen probably isn’t accurate either as the leaders and those who have revealed themselves to the media aren’t from Oregon. The folks convicted of the arson charges who, by the accounts I’ve seen, turned themselves in to law enforcement today, said through their attorney the Bundy Militia doesn’t speak for them.
I’m sticking with right-wing extremists.
Perspective from The Losers Bracket here.
They seized a bird sanctuary in wintertime? Maybe we should send in the Audubon Society. Busloads of retirees in sensible shoes asking to use the restroom and demanding the AARP discount in the gift shop. That’ll fix ’em.
Or just seal the place off and wait them out.
