I wonder what most people imagine when they hear "armed militia hijack government building". I bet they aren't picturing what the building actually looks like, located in one of the least densely populated areas in the lower 48 states.

The way the liberals here talk you'd think it was more like this:

Nope, that's BLM in Baltimore.

Or maybe this?

Nope, Ferguson.

Here's the Oregon protest in Burns, OR the liberals want shut down with guns blazing for being terrorists:

Peaceful protest followed by Oregon wildlife refuge action

The two are equivalent because one had police killings?

Take up arms against the Federal Government, you can die in a shoot out or surrender. Two choices is all you get. Choose wisely.

The Hammonds burned 138 acres of public land to cover the fact they were poaching there. It's in the trial records.

That's correct. They are criminals and deserve to be punished.

If this is true, it burns me up.

Why were they slaughtering deer on public land?

This is being depicted as a private land takeover by supporters of these people.

If the government is rededicating public land to a wildlife refuge instead of renewing sweetheart "welfare" leases at far below market value, as is typical of BLM lands all across the west, then good riddance, especially if they were slaughtering deer, which are a public resource.

If it is part private land takeover and part refusal to lease, then what are the percentages? More information, please.

I don't understand why people who haven't hurt anyone are being compared to ISIS.

Leftist fear mongering....

That's all they know.....

Default American Patriots to Fed Gov: We are not holding hostages and don't want to resort to violence

Ryan Bundy

But will not rule out self defense if we are attacked. 2nd American revolution is a lot longer than the first for sure. Its opening volleys were at Ruby Ridge,Then Waco continuing on.

The Hammonds are claiming that they were burning to clear a section of overgrowth, and the fire got away from them. The question is, was there proof that they were poaching? Were they convicted of poaching, or is this the story the government is telling us to justify going after these people?
