You are completely FOS for lumping “militia/freemen/sovereign citizens/tea partiers/etc.” together for purposes of espousing your misguided, misinformed and under-educated opinion.
In including freemen & sovereigns, you might as well have thrown in Travelers & Gypsies as well… maybe homeless squatters too, along with the whole Occupy Wallstreet crowd who defecated on public property, raped, and pillaged.
You have no concept of the principles upon which your own country was founded.
My opinion? Yours is moot, that’s my opinion.
Cliven Bundy did, indeed, violate legally binding orders for him to remove his cattle. The BLM did, indeed, have a legal right to come in and impound his cattle.
What they did NOT have any right whatsoever to do was violate citizens constitutional rights, violate multiple laws themselves, illegally arrest and detain citizens, close such a massive expanse of public land for purposes of executing said orders, and use the kind of threats and intimidation tactics that they used against law abiding citizens who were perfectly within their rights to do what they were doing.
NV Governor Sandoval was absolutely correct in the way he addressed the situation. His position on it perfectly sums up the legal aspect of it. He did not address the issue of BLMs presence there to do what they had multiple legally binding court orders to do; rather, he took issue with the illegal and immoral acts perpetrated by them upon multiple innocent citizens in executing those orders.
When the feds come knocking on your door to illegally take your property (which they do indeed do from time to time) and the police won’t come to help you, you are going to wish that there was a citizens militia assembled to protect your rights and property. And when there’s not, because all the guns have been confiscated and the only people those militia members can afford to look out for is themselves at such a point, you are going to deserve to have your property illegally taken from you.
If you can’t see what’s going on around you in that regard, you are quite simply blind. No, the sky isn’t falling and the country isn’t descending into chaos and ruthless tyranny against all citizens, and Alex Jones is not telling the truth because he is, indeed, a lying POS con man, but things are most certainly headed in the direction of a very gradual, virtually silent takeover by the federal government. And that is something that’s worthy of resistance at all costs, even bloodshed if need be. If you want to give away your constitutional rights, you are not worthy of America.
