Yes, they did grievously abuse social media by posting way too many maudlin and meandering calls for violent confrontation — to the extent that one of their more gullible brethren got himself killed. And yes, they did stalk and threaten a number of Oregon residents who weren’t sufficiently enthusiastic about the idea of civil war.
But I wasn’t at the trial and I’m sure the jury had its reasons. Anyway, we can’t forget that these are white folks with folksy accents and late-model pickup trucks — the very people who can never get a break from the fascist Obama regime.
For them, this ain’t America no more: There are way too many immigrants. The government owns way too much land, just like the Indians used to. Time to take it all back. Out west, you get things done at the point of a gun. One wildlife refuge at a time.
And so the Bundys may soon walk among us again. Hallelujah. With this verdict, I think we’ve all learned a valuable lesson: Give a white man a weapon and a cowboy hat and he can pretty much do as he pleases. Yes, Obama’s a lawless dictator, but certain Americans can still get away with quite a bit.
Duly noted. I wonder if these patriots appreciate the irony of being acquitted by the same oppressive system they’d love to destroy. Probably not. Even after the verdict, I see they’re still talking about “restoring” the Constitution. Can’t wait to see how that plays out next time around.
