Yesterday, this writer lamented the BLM’s stupid, short-sighted surrender to a thieving rancher and his terrorist supporters. Comments elsewhere were largely dismissive of the dangerous precedent that was being set, by those whose ideas are more based on theory than reality. As we can see today, reality trumps wishful thinking: the terrorist bastards are loudly claiming victory, and are using the BLM’s caving as proof.
An Arizona state representative in attendance, David Livingston, said the battle over the Bundy cows would serve as a unifying event for lawmakers across 11 western states working on state sovereignty issues.
“This was a major tipping point,” Livingston said.
So now the terrorist traitors will, as predicted, turn it up a notch. They are feeling frisky and are on the offensive, borrowing tactics like using women as human shields that are also used by al-Quaida and other violent motherf***ing extremists. Sure looks like they won, doesn’t it? Yup.
Throughout the decades-long imbroglio between Cliven Bundy (supposedly no relation to Ted) and the rest of America, one thing stands out as clear and consistent: his complete disregard for the rule of law. So what happens when a bunch of “militia” goons takes up arms against the lawful authorities and defeats them? His disrespect for the rule of law becomes even more intense, as it does for all those like him. This is going to breed more domestic terror activity.
You can say “at least a bloodbath was averted”, and that’s a fair point. But that’s based on the assumption that the terrorists would have actually started shooting, which is contrary to their own stated plans. Of course, now that they think we’re weak, they are far MORE likely to shoot next time: their belief in the power of their cheap-ass imported wanna-be assasult weapons has been magnified by the surrender monkeys at the BLM.
The terrorists and Bundy got a cookie and a pat on the head, instead of the boot up the arse and trip to jail they deserved. Anyone who thinks this will do anything other than encourage them to commit more acts of violent, treasonous sedition has their head in a very dark and smelly place. This will not end well for any of us.
