In a speech to the militia members still gathered at Cliven Bundys ranch in Nevada last week, Mike Vanderboegh, leader of the militia group Three Percenters, warned that the country is staring a civil war in its bloody face.
Vanderboeghs Three Percenters group, named after the number of American colonists they believe fought against the British in the revolutionary war, was listed in a recent Oath Keepers press release as a stalwart of the standoff at the Bundy ranch. Vandeboegh, who wrote a novel that allegedly inspired a domestic terrorist plot in 2011, is also known for his role in pushing the Fast and Furious scandal.
All over this country, we are still staring civil war in its bloody face, Vanderboegh warned the crowd, in a video posted by Tom Lacovara, the host of an anti-government radio show.
Vanderboegh claimed that Sen. Harry Reid, who has criticized the Bundy ranch militias, is promising us all civil war on a vast scale, because state-sponsored violence is they only way they can win an argument with free people, especially free people who are armed and who are willing to use those arms in defense of liberty.
Vanderboegh then told the legend of an Alabama woman named Jenny Brooks whose husband and son, according to Vanderboegh's version of the story, were killed by state law enforcement collecting taxes for the Confederate government. According to the tale, Brooks went after the men who had killed her family, killed two of them in return, and turned one of their skulls into a soap dish.
Vanderboegh then pulled out a skull and declared that he would present it to Reid as the 2014 Award for Incitement to Civil War.
He added: Dont poke the wolverine with a sharp stick, Harry, unless you want your balls ripped off.
They are wrong but they will tell that lie to try and maintain their fantasy of the right.
The other thing they are wrong about is that the right is not watching this situation. We are. This situation should have been left to the local sheriff. There is not way in hell that every government agency needs their own well armed military force.
Could it be that they are trying to force their own wishes on us?? Could it be that they really want an armed conflict with the conservative and libertarians in our nation?
I actually think they do.
The only thing I can tell them is be careful what you wish for because it seldom goes the way you think it will. No one or side will win an armed conflict between the people of our nation. It will touch and harm every one of us if it happens.
It will never turn into a force on force war. It will be decades of unconventional warfare where they will take your steady food source, water supply, and electrical power. Most of all you will have to give up your freedoms so they have the power to pursue the bad guys. Which of course will just create more bad guys.
Most of the firearms are in the hands of the conservatives. Most of our military come from the red areas of our nation. The food water and power all originate there as well.
All of these things are food for thought that should be considered before you push others to violence.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
At some point the line must be drawn...
That was probably a little less cordial than Harry is used to....
And the government purchased all that ammo for what reason?
But it is telling that this was done in Reid's face (so to speak). Throwing down the gauntlet.
I think the Bundy "incident" illustrates that the Feds are deliberately getting more heavy handed because they sense an increasingly restive segment of the populace. How large the segment and how restive is open to interpretation. But the point is that the feds believe it is serious and their response is to [illegally] come down like a ton of bricks. IMO, with the goal of making an example of Bundy to intimidate other potential dissidents.
There is some escalation occurring on both sides, we will have to wait & see just how much and where it goes.
You are so right....
It will an absolute mess on so many different levels.... food, water, power, no work, economic bust, etc. etc....
There will never be a force on force conflict. That is a liberal dream. The full force of the US military will never be used on our citizens either. The troops simply won't do it.
A handgun gets you a rifle. The rifle gets you a truck load of fertilizer. The truck load of fertilizer takes down an electrical tower, or takes out a rail bridge or a waterway or pipe that carries drinking water to a large city. Then everyone goes home and waits for the next opportunity. This force on force fantasy will hot happen. Unconventional warfare could happen and could succeed in causing massive disruption of our culture and day to day life.
The goal of this type of warfare is to create disruption food fuel and water and to create fear. We have been teaching it and utilizing it around the world for decades. If you don't believe it can happen here you are delusional. And yes it would not take a very large portion of our population to make it work.
Two idiots with an AR-15 and an old Chevrolet had the nation’s capitol freaked out for weeks. Has everyone forgotten that?
It’s been decades that the government, BLM, FS, EPA, have been stealing land from rural Americans without much response from Republicans or even conservatives. Out of sight, out of mind. The Sagebrush Rebellion need renewing.
Why would we want to take down an electrical tower, a rail bridge or a waterway or pipe that carries drinking water to a large city? This is OUR land. There’s no reason for us to destroy it. We can block the highways into DC, stopping the federal workers from getting to their government offices.
Myself, I think it would be a better idea if we sent our wives up to talk with the legislators wives. A half dozen ladies sitting at a kitchen table drinking coffee can quickly decide what to do to make their husbands come around to their way of thinking.
I’ll bet you a beer that the kids won’t miss a day of school and the ladies will enjoy straightening their husbands heads on just what makes America tick. No, it is not G-men armed with the latest and greatest black, scary assault rifles.
it would be really really Bad,,,
and missing my TV show is going to be bad too.
That soap dish skull thing,
just to icky !
This has happened when????
If we must there is always the option of sending a 7mm Mag through the legislators front door. The ensuing conversation with the Mrs will guarantee some new opinions at the sub committee conference table. Perhaps even a few resignations.
Our legislators will not get off scot free if there is a shoot out. If their decisions endanger our families, those same decisions will also endanger their own families.
Can you name another internal conflict in which the people were armed as well as the American people are armed?
