Forum Post: SPLC Investigation of the Bundy Ranch "Standoff"

Someone should inform them that most REAL cowboys were Native Americans, Mexicans and Black people.

But anyway, very informative report.

"As officers of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department withdrew from Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville, Nev., ranch on April 12, the question had to be asked: How could a scofflaw like Bundy, who owes more than $1 million in grazing fees but was backed up by hundreds of armed antigovernment zealots, manage to run off federal officials who clearly were in the right for seizing Bundy’s cows as payment for what he owes? The standoff very nearly ended in bloodshed, as large numbers of Bundy supporters pointed their weapons at law enforcement officials, a felony that is now under investigation by the FBI. The BLM wisely withdrew, avoiding possible violence.

The Bundy standoff has invigorated an extremist movement that exploded when President Obama was elected, going from some 150 groups in 2008 to more than 1,000 last year. Though the movement has waxed and waned over the last three decades, antigovernment extremists have long pushed, most fiercely during Democratic administrations, rabid conspiracy theories about a nefarious New World Order, a socialist, gun-grabbing federal government and the evils of federal law enforcement. Today’s disputes with federal authority, many long simmering, are an extension of the earlier right-wing Sagebrush Rebellion, Wise Use and “county supremacy” movements."

You won't find them charging off to defend the Palestinians though, because most of those loon conservatives think Israel can do no wrong.

I don't suppose you have a link?

Most of the gun nutterz I've ever met hate all things Jewish.

I do get tired of you saying things you can't prove.

[-] 4 points by turbocharger (1431) 3 months ago

HA! Those freaks love Israel, would like to see the Palestinians and the rest of the Arab world blown off the fuckin map. You are so full of it. Actually, you are kind of just like em.

Those are the Bushite style evangelicals, hell bent on ushering in the apocalypse that I've already talked about, yet most here refuse to admit their responsibility to the trouble we're seeing now.

The gun nutterz I'm talking about are more likely to read George Lincoln Rockwell and are less likely to be reported upon.

You might find them marching against "illeagle immigrants", or joining any one of a number of militias.

Now if you would be so kind as to comment on the lengthy report I actually posted.

That would be nice.

[-] 3 points by turbocharger (1431) 3 months ago

No, its not just the evangelicals. Its the overwhelming vast majority of the right.

[-] -2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 3 months ago

LOL

Aren't you the guy that just posted some crap about the NWO?

Yup.

You should have stuck with Alex Jones.

BTW, more and more of the "right" is comprised of evangelicals these days.

So that doesn't negate anything I've said.

Watch all the Republicans coddle up to this disgusting organization:

Oh, so you too applaud Chris Christie for embracing this invasion of Gaza?

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1431) 3 months ago

Oh, don't like that one?

[-] -3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 3 months ago

You haven't commented on the threads theme yet.

But no, I don't care for Alex Jones style BS.

I prefer bigfoot.

At least that's good for a harmless laugh.

Hey, that was ZenDogs crew that posted the World Truth stuff on their facebook page, I just reposted it because it said

"This isnt about right vs left, this is about the state vs us".

Thoughts on that? Or just more comments to avoid the obvious?

[+] -4 points by shoozTroll (17632) 3 months ago

I find it more like us against corporations and individuals like the Kochs.

You're the one that likes all the conspiracy theories.

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1431) 3 months ago

Its just another half truth on your part.

Like your overwhelming loyalty to Israel and refusal to say anything against them.

Your masters are invading Gaza and your concerned with some hick on a ranch. Keep up the good work.

Sooner or later you are going to have to deal with the core issues here, of which Israel is right in the middle.

I'm so very, very sorry that you are unable to actually read.

It's very sad.

This is a thread on the Bundy Ranch militia's, and their links to racist and other nefarious groups.

There's already a plethora of conspiracy theory threads on the subject you attempting to drag me into.

Or you could go post over at prisonplanet.

You should try for a little better comprehension.

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1431) 3 months ago

No need to go to Prison Planet, you can just go to any number of Occupy facebook pages. Of course, they are linking (as Occupy Vermont did) to some of those sites too, so I guess you have a bigger problem than just me.

You do realize what site you are on, don't ya? I mean, all are welcome, even the Zionist backing globalists I guess.

Here, Chris Christie would be proud of your endorsement of this ground invasion: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117214/republicans-and-democrats-part-ways-israel

[-] -2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 3 months ago

You are all that. ( Alex Jones zealot)

Now are you going to comment on the threads actual theme?

Or will you continue to perpetrate conspiracy theory?

This time from a hot bed of Koch/libe(R)tarian BS?

You've almost made it full circle, back to the John Birch Society.

Want to talk about the minister in Texas that self immolated?

Just further proof that these are people that think it's still the turn of the 19th century.

Yep.
