    The guilty parties are willingly reporting to jail to complete their sentences, and want nothing whatosever to do with the nutjobs who have hijacked this case to pursue their own misguided agendas.

    Publicly, no. But the militia terrorists claim privately they are begging for help.

    Saw a tweet that said the 150 was more like 6-8. Million Man March math?

    I assume they are white people who can do math better than that.

    This was written in 2014 after the Bundy Ranch standoff.
    The author thinks Bundy had a legitimate grievance and the federal government was bullying him and he stood up to the bully.
    He thinks you have to respect someone who is "no-shit ready to die" for what they believe in.

    Can someone explain why this guy is right because I don't see it.

    BLM-Nevada rancher showdown

    All I see is that the feds should not have let the standoff end without Bundy and his supporters in handcuffs or dead.

    So you're a big fan of armed government agents killing citizens? Must be why you loved the Clinton years.

    You can't let them think they can just walk all over you just because they get some friends with guns to come to their aid.
    Cliven had his day in court. He lost. More than once. He should have either sucked it up and paid his grazing fees or gotten his cattle off the federal land. It's that simple.
    They pointed guns at federal agents. If what happened in the Tamir Rice case was OK, why should that have been any different?

    For those of you smart enough not to take the word of the thugs in the Justice Department, here's a little more believable story on the Hammond "charges" that started this.


    Hammond and his son were already sentenced to prison for their "crimes" but Obama's thugs thought a 73-year-old white rancher deserved the full five years, so they appealed.

    It's also interesting to note that the real terrorists hear are, unsurprisingly, a "green" group that has been trying for years to push the Hammonds off of land they have long had a legal right to use.

    Too bad. They had their day in court and they lost. Time to go to prison.

    Of course, they already WENT to prison. But Obama's goons thought it was a good use of resources to destroy a 73-year-old man's life after he'd served his time.
