Oregon Should Make You Realize We Ignore White Terrorism
Three of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s sons and what they claim are 150 militia members have occupied a federal building in eastern Oregon in order to keep two local ranchers out of prison, according to local reports. The group is believed to be heavily-armed.
According to The Oregonian, the group seized the headquarters building at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge about 50 miles outside Burns, Ore. The remote facility was closed and unoccupied at the time. Brave patriots withput a doubt.
Bundy and his supporters were in Oregon after two men were scheduled to go to prison on Monday for setting fires on federal land, according to a report by Oregon Public Broadcasting. The case has caused a stir in eastern Oregon because the two men were charged under anti-terrorism laws.
White Terrorism In Oregon
Were fires set on Federal land? Yes. Is that illegal? Yes. Should the two men who started said fires have known better? Yes. These men set a wildlife refuge on fire in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. This is known as brush-burning, and it’s practiced around the country all of the time. It doesn’t excuse them from the fires spreading to Federal land, but it’s a legitimate purpose. However, it sounds like one of the fires’ purpose was to obscure poaching.
The two men were scheduled to go to prison on Monday for setting fires on federal land, according to a report by Oregon Public Broadcasting. The case has caused a stir in eastern Oregon because the two men were charged under anti-terrorism laws. The two were convicted of the arsons three years ago and served time — the father three months, the son one year. But a judge ruled their terms were too short under federal law and ordered them back to prison for about four years each.
Personally, I’d like to know why these white people destroy their own communities in protest? While it seems like they are generally feral in nature, it’s important we determine how they were radicalized. An important question we need to ask ourselves is where are the moderate white people I’m always hearing about, and why aren’t they condemning this activity?
In all seriousness, the National Guard might be over-matched by these anti-government terrorists armed to the teeth. This is not equivalent to Baltimore or Ferguson for the enemy here is the entire federal government (and the shadowy world government behind them). These guys are more akin to ISIS or, given their rural tendencies, “Yall Qaeda”.
