“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
www.infowars.com reported that the Oklahoma Militia was willing to fight in support of Nevada rancher’s grazing rights on federal land. Members of the right-wing militia says it has 50,000 volunteers ready to go, if the
Bureau of Land Management once more attempted to confiscate Cliven Bundy’s cattle. Their leader Scott Shaw said to the website, “Evidently in America we don’t actually own the property anymore if you ever did. A showdown is up to the feds. The ball’s in their court! You can do this legally or if you want to try to do a land grab violently, you can do that. We’re going to resist you! Just look around the country, they are doing it everywhere. If they can do it in Nevada, they can do it in Colorado, Texas. I mean, what’s to stop them from coming to Oklahoma? The only thing to stop them is ‘We the People’.”
Senator James Inhofe was quick to criticize the militia.
You’ve got a bunch of people there trying to take the law into their own hands and they shouldn’t be doing that. And the Bureau of Land Management is not government-owned, it’s publicly owned. There’s a big difference there. I blame both sides.”
Me, I blame everyone involved, but armed insurrection against the USA is never a good idea.
Just ask the South.
