IMAGES: Bundy Militia Member Says They Went To Oregon ‘To Die’


“They have nothing to live for, and blame everything that has gone wrong in their lives on someone else (none of it is their own fault, don’t you know?), so the rest of us are subject to the danger of their suicidal dramas,” the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence writes on Facebook in reference to one of the occupiers described only as Capt. Morni saying, “I didn’t come here to shoot I came here to die.”

The group is exactly right. These badass ‘patriots’ took over an unoccupied bird sanctuary. So very brave.

Reporter Amanda Preacher is on the scene posting updates on Twitter. She asked how the Bundy militia members obtained entry into the refuge building and was told, “They found a whole set of keys.”

And they want to die.

The anti-government extremists covered the sign leading to the refuge with the American flag.

We don’t think they’ve thought this out. The group’s stockpile of supplies already looks low on the first day of the occupation.

There’s not a sign of law enforcement in the vicinity.


The entry is blocked. In short, they’ve taken the refuge from some birds.

However, the Oregon ranchers at the center of the dispute do not want them there. Ryan Payne, an electrician from Montana who wears a pistol on his hip, said the Hammonds need to be defended from the federal government, OPB reports. “[The Hammonds] are being brutally oppressed,” said Payne.

But again, the Hammonds’ attorney have already stated the militiamen showing up in Burns do not represent the ranchers.

Harney County Sheriff, Dave Ward, said he received death threats via emails from people in other states after he told militia organizers he would not create a safe haven for the Hammonds to stay in Harney County, according to OPB.

“What we’ve been threatened with here is civil unrest and the insinuations of armed rebellion,” said Sheriff Ward.

This whole armed takeover of a bird sanctuary is pathetic and American voters are sick of this sh*t.

The sanctuary’s website states, in part, “The Lake Malheur Reservation was established on August 18, 1908 by executive order of President Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt set aside unclaimed government lands encompassed by Malheur, Mud and Harney Lakes “as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds.” The newly established “Lake Malheur Reservation” was the 19th of 51 wildlife refuges created by Roosevelt during his tenure as president. At the time, Malheur was the third refuge in Oregon and one of only six refuges west of the Mississippi.”

The townspeople do not want them there. The sheriff isn’t thrilled either. The Hammonds do not want them there and the birds sure as hell don’t want the armed ‘patriots’ in their sanctuary.

One word: Drones.
