One could view Rosendale’s ad as just part of a larger trend of political candidates, seemingly all Republican, releasing ads in which they literally use a gun to make a political point. But it’s almost certainly the first camapign [sic] ad to literally target a drone. - Yahoo News, 04-15-2014
Because in the land of the upstanding white rural militia and tinfoil hats, teh drones be spying on you. //
Back in 2012, the BLM announced using drones to fly over sparsely populated areas in Idaho.
Some people have expressed concern about eyes in the sky keeping a close watch on American homes. Congressional representatives have even brought forward bills to outlaw drone use without a warrant. But the BLM said its plan to put flying drones in Idaho skies won’t run afoul of privacy issues.
“We’re only flying over BLM-managed land,” said Brady. “We’re not flying over private land or state land or any other ownership other than BLM property.”
But we all know how evil the BLM is. Just ask Cliven Bundy. It may have been drones (caution: wingnut link) that documented more than 900 cattle grazing for free on public land designated to graze only 150.
