Here’s Some Background on the Militia Members “Occupying” the Oregon Wildlife Refuge
The far right loons who took over the headquarters of Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge are now in their second day of “occupation,” and oddly enough there isn’t a single post about it yet at Breitbart “News.” When they delay writing about something that’s so obviously appealing to the right wing base, it usually means they haven’t decided on their talking points and coordinated them with other right wing media yet.
Meanwhile, here’s video posted to Facebook of Ammon Bundy, son of racist nutbag Cliven Bundy, calling on right wingers to join them in their “occupation” (he says they’re planning to stay there for “years”), and bring weapons.
At the end of this video you see militia loon Blaine Cooper ranting about how he’s retaliating against the government because tyranny.
To give you a sense of the kind of people involved in this far right theater, here’s another video featuring Blaine Cooper in which he uses a high-tech bow to shoot a John McCain mask in the face. Lovely folks. Not violently inclined at all.
After pantomiming murdering John McCain, Cooper concludes his video by saying “God bless.”
For some background on what set these domestic terrorists off, here’s a good piece at The Oregonian with lots of info: Oregon ranchers’ fight with feds sparks militias’ interest.
