It's just after 11 PM Pacific time now. Anyone who sees this needs to turn to Crooks and Liars and spend a few minutes listening to the live audio feed coming right now from the four people left at the Oregon wildlife refuge.
I must say that, in my entire life, I have never heard such madness. These people are in a state where they could do anything. I won't even characterize it- I can't even begin to find the words to describe the state that these people are in. The raving about the government is truly beyond belief- and you know how much time I've spent following crazed right wingers. Well, here is the truth with the mask ripped off, and it is really scary. Anything could happen at this point. Please, if you read this post in the next little while, click on the link and listen. It is truly frightening, and a horrible demonstration of what we have bred by letting these people get away with their malignant idiocy for years.
It's really hard to hear, but I will try to listen for a while longer to hear if they really go over the edge and start shooting.
Update: It's about 11:45. I've never in my life heard adults work themselves up into a state of hysteria in my life. I thought like a bunch of two year olds throwing a tantrum, they would have worn themselves out by now, but they seem to be determined to work themselves in a state where they could do anything, including a Butch and Sundance scenario. They seem to have convinced themselves that if they die, a revolution is going to start tomorrow, and in my admittedly untrained opinion, I think they are working themselves up into a murderous state. I'm going to have to stop listening soon. I shudder to think what we will find by tomorrow morning.
These are truly evil people. We all have a responsibility to not give in to such hatred, but these guys are just surrendering to the worst of all human emotions.
Now they are saying that if the feds tear gas them, they have a right to start shooting. Within a couple of hours, they will talk themselves into believing that anything the feds do is a justification to start shooting. They are demanding that the feds turn the headlights on their vehicles off. Soon, that will be a big enough excuse.
I wish every person in the United States could hear this- it would let them all understand just how crazy and violent these people are.
Update 2: Well, these jackasses promised to surrender at 8:00 AM this morning, but it's now 9:30 and of course they are still there, blabbing about Obamacare and liberty and Sharia law.
Here's something funny. The guy says that Sharia law isn't the law in the United States because US law comes from our God-given rights. This remark alone may qualify him to be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Lack of Self Awareness.
Got to go out for a while- I'm sure I'll have more later.
And That Little More: Early afternoon, and its all over. The last jackass surrendered after his demands for disbanding the police, ending abortion and Obmacare, and for weed, were not met. This incident, if nothing else, should definitively demonstrate what self-centered assholes these people are, and how little they really care about the Constitution, this country, or anything else that they don't think will benefit themselves instantly. In other words, except for being more stupid than most, typical Conservatives. I tell you what- blaming these people barely makes more sense than blaming a puppy or eating a shoe. The real blame lies on both the right wing politicians and spokesmen who have egged these people on, closer and closer to violence, over the years, and the media and Democrats who have steadfastly refused to deal in public with this pack of fascist, violent, armed subhumans.
