The occupation of an Oregon federal wildlife refuge by either anti-government activists or “terrorists” as many liberals are now calling them is a boon for Emperor Obama as he seeks to implement his anti-gun agenda during his final year in office. The heavily armed group – which is led by Ammon Bundy – the son of conservative hero Cliven Bundy – has provided Obama with the perfect opportunity to use the Rahm Emanuel strategy of never letting a good crisis “go to waste” as he seeks to crack down on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Obama has announced that he will be bypassing Congress – a worthless pack of pandering con artists who are already in election mode – and using an executive order to close the gun show “loophole” in order to restrict the sale of firearms. That’s only going to be the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent though as Democrats are looking for another campaign issue that can be exploited to turn out voters come November.
The disturbing thing about the situation is that it has liberals foaming at the mouth and calling for the feds to take out Bundy and his fellow activists with extreme prejudice with a massive use of force along the lines of what was unleashed in Waco during the Clinton years. Not only are there cries of a double standard in how the protesters are being treated because they are white but some are actually backing the killing of those holed up at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Among those advocating for a massive use of state-sponsored violence against Bundy’s men include the black talk show host Montel Williams:
Then let’s give them some – put this down using National Guard with shoot to kill orders.https://t.co/KSzUZzUor6

Williams’ call for government troops to simply murder the protesters is detailed in a Washington Times story entitled “Montel Williams calls for ‘massive use of deadly force’ against Oregon refuge occupiers”:
Television personality Montel Williams, a former Marine, called Sunday for a “massive use of deadly force” against the armed anti-government protesters who have taken over a building in a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon.
Mr. Williams began his rant Saturday evening by retweeting a post from a user who said the anti-government group, joined by Ammon Bundy, the 40-year-old son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, “should be dealt with as Waco was dealt with.”
“Send in the national guard. I’m over #ClivenBundy and his band of treasonous morons who call themselves patriots,” Mr. Williams said of the now-famous rancher who was involved in a 2014 standoff with the government over grazing rights.
Mr. Williams then started promoting a White House petition claiming the group’s occupation of part of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge “is the greatest threat to our freedom, rule of law, and protections of the commons.”
“I have proudly signed this petition asking the Gov’t repo its property from #ClivenBundy terrorists,” he wrote Sunday morning.
“It appears #OregonUnderAttack by a bunch of undereducated terrorist buffoons who follow #ClivenBundy shall we send them to meet #ISIS,” Mr. Williams continued. “There is method to my madness… Bundy, Ritzheimer, et al need a meeting with natural selection. #OregonUnderAttack”
Does it really need to be asked whether Williams would be calling for a similar use of force if roles were reversed and members of the Black Lives Matter movement or entitled college students would be the ones occupying a building?
One thing that always troubled me about my liberal and progressive friends and acquaintances is just how quickly they sold out their supposed principles once their guy Obama was the one in the White House. Barry has been allowed to get away with bloody murder for his wars, mass surveillance, Wall Street criminal coddling and any other number of things that they were squealing like stuck pigs for George W. Bush’s head on a pike for. Republican presidential contenders are also exposing themselves as feckless, power-hungry chickenshits over the standoff with neocon golden boy Marco Rubio calling Bundy’s bunch “lawless”.
The wildlife refuge is a complex issue stemming from an overzealous government vendetta colliding with a growing disgust with the post 9/11 overreach of Leviathan. Some whose opinions should be considered of merit including those within the patriot/liberty movement suspect that Mr. Bundy is being used by informants and snitches as a publicity seeking dupe who can be sacrificed in an orchestrated showdown with the federal government. The media is already engaged in their typical deceptive tactics in the referring to the small compound that is being occupied as a “federal building” which evokes memories of the Oklahoma City bombing. While technically it is a “federal building” it is only because it is actually owned by the government and using this loose sort of definition even an outhouse or a hot dog stand could be labelled as such.
The story continues to develop but with the desire for payback that exists with some of the more militant aggrieved elements in America who are goaded on by guys like Montel Williams meshing with the need for the feds to set an example of what happens tho those who disagree with them it is probably destined for an ugly end for all involved.
