    They’d be killed if they were black: The racial double standard at the heart of the new Bundy family standoff

    Armed white men seize a federal building. The government stands down carefully. But a 12-year-old with a toy gun?



    At least 150 armed white men have seized control of a federal building outside of Burns, Oregon. They are led by a cadre which includes Ammon and Ryan Bundy. They are the sons of Cliven Bundy, the rancher who led a successful armed rebellion against federal law enforcement officers in Nevada last year. Since that event, Ammon and Ryan Bundy have been traveling the United States, meeting with other white “militia” groups, and inciting violence against the federal government ...

    They simply want something for nothing :facepalm:



    The Armed Oregon Ranchers Who Want Free Land Are Already Getting A 93 Percent Discount


    The takeover of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon appears to be more than just a protest of the impending imprisonment of two ranchers who set fires that spread into public lands. The armed demonstrators are led by Ammon Bundy, whose father, Cliven, has refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of the federal Bureau of Land Management to own some public lands or to regulate their use for grazing. But the government is giving the Bundy family a pretty good deal on the grazing rights it refuses to pay for ...

    It's about the past or present treaty agreements with that state's native folk:

    Man behind armed Oregon band says he's on mission from God


    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The man behind the armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge comes from a Mormon family that has been challenging government authority for at least two decades.

    Ammon Bundy, like his father in previous confrontations, says he is following directions from God and invokes his family's faith when explaining the anti-government movement he is attempting to lead ...

    No, White Militiamen, You're Not Treated Worse Than Black Lives Matter Activists

    Did I miss the call for the national guard in Oregon? I recall them in Ferguson and Baltimore. #OregonUnderAttack

    10:34 PM - 2 Jan 2016


    It's been days since a group of armed militiamen stormed onto a federal wildlife refuge in Oregonand refused to leave. Now, the group's got a bone to pick with what they think is the media's negative portrayal of them.

    "The Black Lives Matter movement, they can go and protest, close freeways down and all that stuff, and they don't get any backlash, not on the level that we're getting," one man told reporters on Monday, according to the Huffington Post. But even before the man's comment, observers noted that the militiamen were absolutely not being treated the same as black protesters: ...

    Cheers for sheriff who tells armed Ore. group to 'go home'
    Leader Ammon Bundy told reporters they will leave when there's a plan in place to turn over federal lands to locals
    Today at 11:33 AM

    BURNS, Ore. — Cheers erupted at a packed community meeting in rural Oregon when a sheriff said it was time for a small, armed group occupying a national wildlife refuge to "pick up and go home"

    The group objecting to federal land policy seized buildings at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday. Authorities have not yet moved to remove the group of roughly two dozen people, some from as far away as Arizona and Michigan. The group also objects to a lengthy prison sentence for two local ranchers convicted of arson.

    "I'm here today to ask those folks to go home and let us get back to our lives," Harney County Sheriff David Ward said Wednesday evening.

    Schools were closed following the seizure of the refuge because of safety concerns in this small town in eastern Oregon's high desert country and tensions have risen. Ward told the hundreds gathered at the meeting he hoped the community would put up a "united front" to peacefully resolve the conflict.

    Group leader Ammon Bundy has told reporters they will leave when there's a plan in place to turn over federal lands to locals.

    Several people spoke in support of Bundy and his followers at Wednesday's meeting.

    "They are waking people up," said 80-year-old Merlin Rupp, a long-time local resident. "They are just making a statement for us, to wake us up."

    Earlier Wednesday the leader of an American Indian tribe that regards the preserve as sacred issued a rebuke to Ammon's group, saying they are not welcome at the snowy bird sanctuary and must leave.

    "The protesters have no right to this land. It belongs to the native people who live here," Burns Paiute Tribal leader Charlotte Rodrique said.

    Bundy is demanding that the refuge be handed over to locals.

    Rodrique said she "had to laugh" at the demand, because she knew Bundy was not talking about
    giving the land to the tribe.


    The standoff in rural Oregon is a continuation of a long-running dispute over federal policies covering the use of public lands, including grazing. The federal government controls about half of all land in the West. For example, it owns 53 percent of Oregon, 85 percent of Nevada and 66 percent of Utah, according to the Congressional Research Service.
