Armed, Pathetic and Hungry: How the Oregon Militants' Revolutionary Plan Went Sideways



The armed standoff in remote southeast Oregon, where white militants led by the Bundy clan have taken over federal buildings at a wildlife refuge, isn't going according to plan.

The would-be insurrectionists are undermanned, undersupplied and exhausted. They've been unable to provoke the confrontation with federal agents that they chest-thumpingly declared themselves willing to die in. And they've found themselves roundly mocked on social media as "Yee-hawdists" in the service of "Y'all Qaeda," "Yokel Haram" or "Vanilla ISIS."

Taking up arms against the federal government is no laughing matter, of course. And if the militants were black, brown or Muslim, they'd likely be dead by now. But for a group of heavily armed Christian white dudes play-acting at revolution, things could hardly be going worse.

1. They probably thought

Thousands would show up with supplies.

But not even Crazy Cruz is backing them.

They should've invoked god/gay people so Huckabee showed up.

3. Is it really a "standoff"

when only one side is present?

And if you really think the Obama DOJ would charged in and and routed a bunch of "black, brown or Muslims" in the same situation, well, I've got some high and dry swampland in the Everglades to sell you.

Instead, liberals would be seeking to ascertain "why they hate us," and would be discussing "blowback" and "chickens coming home to roost" and whatever other apologia they could come up with.

4. RUBBISH !

You want to talk about a protest that went side-ways ?

Let`s talk about the Baltimore riots last spring.

9 MILLION dollars in damages.....burned-out buildings, stores looted, pharmacies looted, cop cars destroyed.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/13/baltimore-rioting-damage_n_7277692.html

It was so freakin` outta control that the National Guard had to be called in.


Your attempts to magnify what is going on in Oregon are pathetic.

You came specifically to this and other Oregon threads to disrupt with your deflections because you want ppl to STOP talking about this front page issue.

Speaking of frauds...didya hear about one of these "patriots" getting caught lying about his non-existent military service, aka stolen valor? And some of these anti-govt freaks loves getting their SSDI every month. That's why these dumbasses have the time to pull this stunt. that is some serious fraud right there.

Again, spare us the sanctimonious bullshit.

27. So far at least 2 of these "So-Called Patriots" are also frauds

Claiming to be veterans

Are they ''Terrorists"?

Not really, Yet(That could change quickly since they have a mob with no real leadership).

So far they are all puffery and bluster, a bunch of Fatass wannabes playing Red Dawn who didn't even think to bring Food and proper clothing, sleeping gear and made themselves a laughing stock of the planet. Right now they are their own Prison, Guarding themselves. A Bunch of Schmucks, plain and simple.

IF they execute a Terrorist act, they should be treated accordingly and with swift punishment.

They are Criminals though, and however this ends, they should be arrested and charged accordingly to the laws they've broken so far.

29. I haven't seen the left condoning destruction from the riot.

 

Although I have seen people pointing out the cause and effect of how the riots happened in the first place or saying "I told you so". But that's far from condoning them.

31. The mayor of Baltimore said she was allowing those who wished to destroy

stuff to have a space to do so. ( ie ...she condoned the destruction )

That has to have been the most asinine comment by a politician ever.

More like trying to contain the violence to a certain area, rather than let it spread.

It's also better than mowing people down. To some, at least.

City of Baltimore received FEDERAL tax money to ( cough ) rebuild what the thugs tore up.

5. It really is shocking that anyone on the right is speaking against this gang of loons. You

 

would think that they would be the poster boys for conservatism "activism" against the evil commie government of the Kenyan Muslim Nazi.

Does this mean there is actually a LIMIT to the degree of utter craziness that even those on the right will not accept or support?

Or are they abandoning this latest attack on America because they have not gotten universal support from regressives that they fully expected based on the previous history of cons (public and pols) supporting all kinds of extreme and violent actions?

26. ''And if the militants were black, brown or Muslim, they'd likely be dead by now.''

Pure Hyperbole

Last August, armed ''New Black Panther Party'' members with so called ''assault weapons'' stood in front of a police station in Waller County Texas yelling “Oink, oink! Bang, bang!” “The revolution has come! Off the pigs!”

Was any of them even given a ticket, much less shot?
