Joo keep using dat word...

From Sunday's edition of the World's Worst Newspaper:

So. Let's see. "Free federal lands" is Oregonianspeak for these douchenozzles' expressed intention; "take what public land we want, pay nothing for it, and we have guns, so, freedom!"

What a shock!

It turns out that a group of armed traitors to their government believes that their "...government has no constitutional authority to hold vast land tracts" and, instead, think that "freeing" these lands means that they should be able to take them for themselves and do with them what they want.

Free the lands!

Well, okay, free them until I can take them, fence them, and run my cattle all over them.

But oh, you whacky Oregonian editors and your "free"! Are you joshing me, you pranksters, or do you really think that "free" means what these goddamn traitors say it means? Next thing you know you'll be expecting me to believe that "free" means what the North American Man-Boy Love Association says it means; that men should be free to poke young lads up the backside!

What's infuriating about this - beyond confirming the overall spinelessness of the response to this fucking armed insurrection - is the World's Worst Newspaper being a willing accomplice to these traitors' vomiting their nonsense all over the public record.

The only remotely-nice thing about Oregon's Paper of Record bending over for the Bundy Bandidos like a debutante at a NAMBLA key-drop party is that it allowed my own personal favorite Oregonian Ursula LeGuin to come out swinging her Big Battle Axe of Fuck Your Stupid Bullshit and lop off the empty gourd that this idiot Payne uses to keep his cowboy hat off his shoulders:
Ammon Bundy and his bullyboys aren't trying to free federal lands, but to hold them hostage. I can't go to the Malheur refuge now, though as a citizen of the United States, I own it and have the freedom of it. That's what public land is: land that belongs to the public — me, you, every law-abiding American. The people it doesn't belong to and who don't belong there are those who grabbed it by force of arms, flaunting their contempt for the local citizens. Those citizens of Harney County have carefully hammered out agreements to manage the refuge in the best interest of landowners, scientists, visitors, tourists, livestock and wildlife. They're suffering more every day, economically and otherwise, from this invasion by outsiders. Instead of parroting the meaningless rants of a flock of Right-Winged Loonybirds infesting the refuge, why doesn't The Oregonian talk to the people who live there?
Get some, Ursula!

Erik Loomis over at Lawyers, Guns & Money has some more on this, but for Oregon's only daily newspaper to act as the butt-trumpet for these fetid droppings of the Right Wing fever swamps is unacceptable and beyond a mockery of journalism. But that's why it's the World's Worst Newspaper, after all.

Meanwhile, we're still fucking losing the fucking Whiskey Fucking Rebellion.

I like what you're doing here. They're making noises that they basically want land to be open for loggers and ranchers to use, and to hell with the rest of us and our environmental concerns. That's not free. That's letting a few people grab it and spoil it.

And the whole problem that MNWR was created to solve was that decades of fucktarded logging, mining, and ranching had turned the Blitzen Valley into a wasteland and the Harney Lake basin into a damn dustbowl. The locals worked for generations w USF&W and the BLM to manage the area to repair the damage. And now these fucktards - having, like the Bourbons learned nothing and forgotten nothing - want the goddamn dust bowl back.

In the words of John Muir, Christ, what a bunch of assholes...

I get that the Feds don't want loss of life, hence no large confrontation.

I don't get why they let the rebels come and go at will.

At least put up a road closed sign 10 clicks up the road road leading to the refuge.

No in your face confrontation, but no tolerance either.

Yeah, the degree to which the government has coddled these damn insurgents is ridiculous. You want to be a rebel, fine. But you gotta REBEL. You gotta hunker down in your trench whilst the government forces shell your village. No driving into town for a shower, nap, and a fuckin' latte'.

Plus it's really past time to spike this nonsense. Hanging and burning. I tell ya; it's the only way these nimrods will learn.

I hope you consider adding a share button/feature to your site. I would dearly love to put this summary up on twitter.

Couldn't agree more about the Oregonian which is practically an accessory after the fact and so infuriating. I live in eastern Washington, also home to more than its share of right-wing loons -- I am not getting the sense from coverage from the MSM and off the East Coast that people understand how dangerous and insidious this Bundy bullshit is.

Found your link at Nancy Nall, the incomparable, btw.

nancydrew: ta. I'm not worthy, but I'm glad you enjoyed. I agree; the media isn't doing enough to spread the word on how completely, utterly seditious and dangerous these sonsofbitches are. These guys are the freikorps of the wingnut Right, andif they aren't hammered down - as, now, hopefully they will be after the arrests - they will continue to fester.
