I see they arrested the "Armed Protestors," at the Wildlife Refuge.
It was not a routine traffic stop.
Here is a link to the developing story. Or one of them.
A couple observations....
Can you imagine if the Black Lives Matter people, The annoyed white folks, the Oath Keepers, Middle Class Black folks subjected to stop and frisk, people who lose their land to "eminent domain," all got together?
You do realize their "beef" is with one particular group.
But this is what you get when you elect a community organizer as president. You get a divided population and you get anger and special interest groups who hate everyone else.
Read the comments on my Oregonlive link, or this OPB link.
Here's the other thing you must understand.
While we, (meaning those of my social economic and political group) are somewhat annoyed with black gangsters, illegal Mexicans selling drugs, and Portlanders and their bicycles, I rarely meet anyone who hates them. Mostly they want people to stop stealing their personal property and selling drugs and if they meet a person who works hard and is moderately polite they really don't care their skin color. They will even be friends with Democrats. Heck, some of them are Democrats!
The folks in Portland hate us.
This includes your friends and relatives who post condescending crap on Facebook. Read their elation with the conclusion of the Bundy issue. They are glad a white guy was killed.
The FBI and LE may be the devil when it suites the cause but when it's a white guy with a gun getting shot these folks can't hold in their joy.
They hate you and me and they will turn you in for having guns or if they think you spilled roundup in the ditch or if they don't like how you discipline your child.
Have you ever read about leftist revolutions in China, Russia, Argentina, Venezuela? You know it is neighbor against neighbor and friend against friend.
Or the American Civil war.
The events in Harney County are important for more reasons than the gubment just got away with stealing land and burning out ranches. You now know who your friends are and you know what your local officials do should you object.
