A large group of armed militia members have broken into and occupied a federal building in Oregon. The group reportedly includes three sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who had a tense standoff with federal officials in 2014.
Radical militia members from across the country descended on Harney County, Oregon today to protest the conviction of two local ranchers for arson on federal land. They claim “that the federal government had no authority in Harney County.” The militia occupying the headquarters building at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is a splinter group from the larger protest. The gambit seems intended “to provoke a standoff with the federal government.”
In a phone interview with the Oregonian, Ammond Bundy said that “would not rule out violence if law enforcement tries to remove them.” He called the headquarters building “the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds” and said he was “planning on staying…for years.” In a message on Facebook Bundy said he planned on establishing the facility as a base for militia members across the country:
How the Leader of the Oregon Armed Protest Benefited From a Federal Loan Program
Ammon Bundy decries federal “tyranny,” but he sought aid from the government to help his company.
Mon Jan. 4, 2016 5:42 PM EST
As one of the leaders of a band of armed, anti-government activists who have taken over a Fish and Wildlife Service building in Oregon, Ammon Bundy has denounced the “tyranny” of the federal government. And he has brought a new round of attention to the anti-government militia movement that in 2014 rallied behind his father, Cliven Bundy, when the elder Bundy and armed supporters confronted federal agents in Nevada. But not long ago, Ammon Bundy sought out help from the government he now decries and received a federal small-business loan guarantee.
Ammon Bundy runs a Phoenix-based company called Valet Fleet Services LLC, which specializes in repairing and maintaining fleets of semitrucks throughout Arizona. On April 15, 2010—Tax Day, as it happens—Bundy’s business borrowed $530,000 through a Small Business Administration loan guarantee program. The available public record does not indicate what the loan was used for or whether it was repaid. The SBA website notes that this loan guarantee was issued under a program “to aid small businesses which are unable to obtain financing in the private credit marketplace.” The government estimated that this subsidy could cost taxpayers $22,419. Bundy did not respond to an email request for comment about the SBA loan.
YES! NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH HERE.
Cut the electricity and water off. Feds did it to the Lakota at Wounded Knee 1973.
SAY IT LOUDER, SO WE ALL CAN HEAR IT
I thought just the second tweet would show.
The Oregon occupation is an ARMED, TERRORIST threat. They need to be removed immediately!

Oregon Considers Wall to Keep Out Angry White Men
By Andy Borowitz
BURNS, OREGON (The Borowitz Report)—A majority of Oregonians favor building a twenty-foot wall along the border of their state to prevent angry white men from getting in, a poll released on Monday shows.
The survey indicates that Oregonians are fed up with irate male Caucasians pouring into their state and bringing with them guns, violence, and terrorism.
“This used to be such a nice state,” said Oregon State Senator Carol Foyler, a pro-wall lawmaker. “Since the angry white men came here, parts of it are unrecognizable.”
But even as support for the Oregon wall grows, critics of the proposal say that it does nothing to address the fact that there are already thousands of angry white men living in the state.
Those critics favor forcibly removing the angry white men through mass deportations and resettling them elsewhere, possibly in Texas.
While some argue that the deportation of angry white men would separate them from their families, others believe that their families would be O.K. with seeing them go.
Please read this asinine nonsense.
Bundy says he saw Bill Clinton in burqa & Obama sell “Muslim oils at a street vendor stand with a wig and mustache.”
quiet as church mice pissing on cotton
Republican candidates stay quiet on events in Oregon
January 3 at 10:09 PM
Republican presidential candidates are staying mum as an armed group has taken over part of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon — even those who supported the father of at least one of the group’s leaders, who had his own standoff with the government in 2014, and have called for limits on federal control over Western land.
Some of the issues involved in the standoff — constitutional rights, allegations of federal government overreach and individual liberties — have come to the fore in the GOP primary race. And as Western states are poised to play a larger role in the contest, so has the issue of property rights in a region where the federal government controls about half of the land.
But few candidates seemed willing to wade into any of these issues Sunday as the leaders of the group said they are standing up against government overreach and are prepared to remain there for “as long as it takes.” The group said it is protesting the case of two Oregon ranchers who were convicted of arson in 2012 and are scheduled to report to federal prison Monday. The ranchers were convicted on a broad terrorism charge. Many ranchers and land users in the West lease public land.
No law for white men with guns. They can steal land, take siege of a government facility and then give press conferences.
Oh! So they want to overthrow the government?
LMAO. Those are too funny.
You know, I don’t eat beef anymore…red meat not good for me.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Federal officials are flying into Oregon Sunday to take control of the situation in Burns where armed militia have seized control of a building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge
Sources told KOIN 6 News those officials will work with local officials to try to bring an end to the situation. The FBI will be the lead agency in dealing with the situation, these sources said.
Law enforcement officials have asked politicians to refrain from public comments on the situation out of fear it could inflame things.

This tweet of yours is great, SG2:
Effing morons I tell ya!!!!
Oregon farmers at center of grazing rights dispute REJECT Bundy family occupation of federal building and insist they plan to ‘peacefully’ report to prison on Monday
These bigoted racists are not going to stop until the wrath of God rain down on them.
Do these TERRORISTS have jobs or are they self-employed.
Because the longer they are ALLOWED to hold a governmnet building hostage, without having to punch a clock and get a paycheck, WHO DO YOA’LL THINK THESE MOFOS will be looking to for helping them?
THE FUCKING GOVERNMENT!
Trust, there is ALWAYS a way for LAW ENFORCEMENT & MEDIA to get in there, if they really wanted to.
Let’s not for one moment think that if these terrorist taking a government buidling under seige where BLACK, BROWN, YELLOW, OR
BANG, BANG, BANG

Remember, in the U.S., whether it’s terrorism depends on the skin tone and religion of those doing the terrorizing. #OregonUnderAttack
Right before our eyes we are seeing this as true!
Apparently, white dominated law enforcement is not going to take these domestic terrorists seriously until the next Timothy McVeigh emerges from their ranks.
It’s because our current LE is filled with Timothy McVeighs in the making….it’s sad but the truth
It’s just a matter of time…
Unbelievable. A domestic terrorist schedules a news conference. What next? Sunday morning talk shows?
Just what I was thinking….it IS unbelievable!!
Ya know, I never saw an image of God with an AK…..just doesn’t seem right, right???
I can only imagine what the members of A.I.M. (American Indian Movement) are thinking of as they watch these armed terrorists occupying the Federal facility in Oregon considering the Wounded Knee massacre of their unarmed ancestors and considering their treatment by Federal forces in 1973.
Just tweeted this.
Thanks. And, I am glad you emphasized this:
You are doing a great job on Twitter, SG2!
What you are doing is SO important!
We’re all in this together.
They teach their children that the laws don’t apply to them and that they should kill or be killed in order to protect what they want, devoid of any thought or compassion to the needs and wants of others, and you want to talk shit about our parenting skills?? I have to teach my kid the rules about being brown in this country and how we can’t just get what we want. We have to be damn near perfect, while u sit there basically telling your kids to be lawless cuz white??? The fragility of the white man threatens us all!! We have been forced to be tougher in all ways and vilified for it while the frailness is protected at all costs.. You tell me whose parenting skills should be questioned. Overgrown, spoiled brats, the whole lot of them
What in the ever living fuck is MSM doing??? It’s like they are purposely trying to prove the difference in the way black and white is treated….hmmmmmmmm???
So…..let me get this straight…..weeks of planning on social media, meetings with the locals, and not one hint anywhere to LE that this siege was to take place???? Bullshit….if there was ever a clue that LE is deeply entrenched in the white supremacist agenda it’s this transparent show of the way white fragility has been elevated to white supremacy. These fuckers can’t deal when their perceived right to rule over all is put into question. the true terrorists have always been the white man in this country.
Well, it would certainly be no surprise if local law enforcement folks were buddies with these terrorists. But the Feds, that’s something else. They need to respond. I read that the townsfolk, apparently the ones who aren’t certified loons, are afraid of these militias and rightfully so. I would sure as hell be afraid because these people are going to kill someone eventually.
Law enforcement official Art Roderick: The #Oregonstandoff is in a rural area, they’re not destroying property, no shots fired. Just wait them out, they’ll go home.
Law enforcement’s plan of action is to just wait and see if they go home before they freeze off their limp dicks? It seems like a bad idea to me to not react to an act of terrorism. Doesn’t that just insure that their next act of terrorism will be taken to a higher level?
Precisely!!!! It’s like they are showing the world that there is no thing a white man can’t do just on the strength of his skin tone. Damn!!! Thanks merikka, for helping to prove exactly what the true lovers of this country have been saying for generations; America, you racist AF!!

Last May, 200 armed white bikers killed 9 ppl = “A Brawl”

The silence on the part of those running for president is deafening regarding this act of terror. Where’s the leadership? #OreganUnderAttack
I mean what can they say…the structure of power in this country has assured that this day would come back around. Not one of these so called leaders can say a thing because they have been led by greed, corporate interests and power. The status quo made this. They are the status quo.
this is some straight up bullshyt.
I’m screaming inside!!!
I’m waiting on #FBI director James Comey to come and out and tell us the #Oregonstandoff is not terrorism.
Armed white militia is occupying a federal facility & threatening violence if removed & no media coverage ANYWHERE. GOT DAMMIT!
Look how ABC described an armed to the teeth militia occupying a federal facility & threatening violence.
Would ABC call #BlackLivesMatter or Muslims peaceful if they occupied a building armed to the teeth? Fuckallthewayouttahere ABC
