Rolling Stone Hits the Y’AllQaeda/Vanilla ISIS Nail on the Head

This brilliant, devastating article published by Rolling Stone, entitled The Dumb and Restless, by Matt Taibbi (of course!), perfectly sums up the Bundy yahoos occupying the Malheur Bird Refuge.

Every time these people open their mouths, it’s comedy.

He goes on to point out:

There’s no doubt that these people are dangerous, but their ridiculousness is a huge part of who they are. [snip]

The Bundy militiamen are an extreme example of a type that’s become common in America. Like the Tea Partiers, they seem to not only believe that they’re the only people in history who’ve ever paid taxes, but that they’re the only people who were ever sad about it. What they call tyranny on the part of the federal government just means putting up with the same irritating bills and regulations and other crap that we all put up with, only the rest of us don’t whine about it in the front seats of our cars while posing in front of tripods.

Again, these people may be dangerous, but their boundless self-pity, their outrageous sense of entitlement and their slapstick incompetence as rebels and terrorists are absolutely ridiculous. Sure, it may not help, but how can we not laugh?

The paradox of these misfits is that they’re simultaneously fully capable of being deadly and completely laughable. They’re hysterical (in both sense of the word). And they’re going get somebody killed.  It’s time they stopped playing dress up and grew up.

    These self-proclaimed “militia” guys are mostly living on their wives’ income anyway, or government disability checks. I doubt they owe a lot of taxes. Yet they are unpaid champions for the 1 Percenters, which is what public land welfare ranchers are. Go figure.

    Call For Supplies As Oregon Standoff Enters Second Week

    On Saturday, Ammon Bundy’s mother, Carol Bundy, sent an email to supporters asking them to send her son’s group supplies from a list of more than 80 items, including sleeping bags, wool socks, cigarettes, toiletries, food, coffee and “French Vanilla Creamer.”

    While things were quiet at the refuge’s entrance Sunday, on Saturday a separate group of armed men arrived but left several hours later after occupation leaders told them they weren’t needed.

    I gave the Occupy Salt Lake people a really nice sleeping bag, but I wouldn’t give these clowns a box of used Kleenex’s.

    First they put out an all points bulletin, telling everybody to show up and then they send them home when they get there. What the heck?

    I plan to never get Matt Taibbi on my bad side. :)

    GOP lawmakers meet with Oregon militants against the advice of law enforcement officials

    Charge them with providing material support to terrorism.

      That is really crazy.

      Is Bundy trying to set up his own gov’ment? I bet Gary Herbert didn’t know what kind of people he was egging on here. He got a preview with Cliven. I actually thought this thing was going to fizzle out, but talking to God seems to work.

      Get me out of here!

    Stephen Colbert: As the stand-off in Oregon continues, the brave men in fatigues have found themselves in need of hair care products, creamer, and the most essential survival gear of all, cash money.

    I’m having real trouble understanding why half the country isn’t at the refuge. If you get on Facebook, it seems like everybody is ready to throw caution to the wind to get the government out of their lives and defeat Stalinist statists, bringing Hitlers socialism back to life.

    Of course the whole fake bunch is totally silent, now that a true leader has shown up. Ammon Bundy is on his own. :(

    A lot of sarcasm in my last comment there. Didn’t want anybody to think I’m crazier then I am. :)

    I don’t think Hitler was a socialist. I don’t know WHERE Trump is coming from? Hitler, at least, had a hard life in a country that was going through extremely difficult times. What the hell is Trump and his follower’s excuse for going nutcase?

    Marketing experts lambaste Oregon militants’ social media tactics: They’ve ‘created a big mess’

    Most recently, militiaman Jon Ritzheimer, the prominent anti-Islam activist from Arizona, posted a Facebook video of himself opening hate mail sent to the refuge, including a box filled with dildos. “It’s really ridiculous. This one was really funny – a bag of d*cks,” he said in the video before angrily shoving a bunch of packages off the table. “They just spend all their money on hate, hate, hate, hate!” he shouted.

    Good to know the mail is getting through.

    You heard what he said folks. Start sending a lot more dildos.

    Oregon militants use traditional Jewish horns as Christian ‘battle trumpets’ in insanely weird performance


    Yeah, let’s send in the troops.

      The only way to counter somethings like that, is to bring in the worlds largest PA system and start playing “These Boots Are Made For Walking”, 24/7.

    Bundy Boy Jon Ritzheimer Gives A Lecture On The Constitution And Gets It Wrong

    Crazy Jon Ritzheimer posted a new video to his Facebook page in an effort to “educate the public” about why the Bundy Boys are illegally inhabiting the Malheur Wildlife Reserve. Boy howdy, is it a doozy.
