Treason for the Lord: An armed right-wing militia group has taken over a federal building in Oregon.
CNN reports a heavily armed anti-government militia group has taken over a building in a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon. The domestic terrorists are being led by Ammon Bundy, the 40-year-old son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, and two of his brothers. The Bundy family is well-known for their anti-government action.
Also among them is Ryan Payne, who organized snipers to aim weapons at federal officers during the Bundy Ranch standoff last year.
Oregon Live reports militia members at the refuge claim they have as many as 100 supporters with them.
The terrorists are protesting the federal prosecution of two ranchers (Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46,) both convicted of arson in a failed attempt to cover up illegal poaching on federal lands.
The terrorist group is demanding that the Hammonds be released and the federal government relinquish control of the Malheur National Forest.
The domestic terrorist group is described by reporter Les Zaitz as “hard core militia” who adopted the ranchers’ cause as their own.
The terrorists occupied a remote federal wildlife refuge in the rural southeastern corner of Oregon over the weekend. The building at the refuge seized on Saturday afternoon by the group houses the offices of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, and is operated by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, in Harney County.
Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward released the following statement:
After the peaceful rally was completed today, a group of outside militants drove to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they seized and occupied the refuge headquarters. A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution. For the time being please stay away from that area. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation.
In a video released January 1, Ammon Bundy claims his decision to launch the terrorist action was the result of divine inspiration, a result of what he claims to be a “heart-felt conversation with the Lord.”
In the video, Bundy repeatedly claims that God is on his side, and wants him to fight the federal government, declaring:
the Lord was not pleased with what was happening to the Hammonds…
Bundy concludes the video by asking fellow Christian terrorists to join him in his act of domestic terrorism:
I am asking you to come to Harney County to participate in this wonderful thing that the Lord is about to accomplish…
Because Bundy and his band of domestic terrorists are white and Christian the mainstream media and the government authorities are engaged in a double standard by failing to label these armed domestic terrorists for what they are: armed domestic terrorists.
Bottom line: If these were Muslims, or Black Lives Matter activists taking over a federal building, the response would be completely different.
Watch Ammon Bundy justify his terrorist action by invoking “the Lord” –
