Bundy Supporters Drove ATVs Through Native American Ruins
Yahoo-ey News ^ | 5-12-14 | Sara Morrison

Posted on 05/12/2014 11:36:38 AM PDT by Paul46360

"If there's one thing that will get your point across and persuade the general public to support your cause, it's driving a bunch of ATVs through Native American ruins and burials.

That seems to be the logic used by anti-Bureau of Land Management, pro-Cliven Bundy protestors who drove ATVs through a Utah canyon trail where motorized vehicles are banned. The rally was organized by Phil Lyman who, believe it or not, is actually a commissioner of San Juan county, home of Recapture Canyon. Hundreds of years ago, it was also home to the Puebloans, as evidenced by the ruins of their homes dug into the canyon rock. It is currently on federal land."

How do they know they were “Bundy supporters”?

Just demonizing them with no evidence?

Self-identified including Bundy's son (I think?).

And they didn't drive "through the ruins", they drove on an ordinary-looking jeep trail below the ruins.

Are they inferring that the BLM guys didn’t?

Even so, I would consider the “trespass” as being trumped by military necessity. Reminds me of the scene in Tora Tora Tora where the Audubon Society wouldn’t let the army put the radar station on the mountain where the coverage would be best.

If they really knew who the were they would have had them arrested. Just part of a disinformation campaign.

Uh, the Canyon has been open to motorized vehicles for decades.

It's just now that 0bama, Rustler Reid and their minions want you OUT OF THEIR PARK.

So . . . can we look forward to having Manhattan placed off-limits for motorized vehicles? How about most of the Northeast which once was the domain of Native Americans?

MrB:" How do they know they were “Bundy supporters”? "

Since they transgressed land claimed by BLM, even though it was weeks after the confrontation,
they are 'assumed' to be "Bundy supporters"
Another case of "Jingo Journalism" by media .

Yahoo is worried about this? I found out moments ago I have a saudi keyboard. Pressing a certain key on the saudi keyboard activates a sleeper. Had to go into virtual reality to kill the sleeper and yahoo is worried about an ATV ride?

So the Indians like in the cliffs and the ATV’s drive up the river bottom. The people who want to keep everyone out says the drivers defiled the Indians. I wouldn’t trust anything the BLM said or anyone associated with BLM on this matter.

Thanks for posting, but I’m not reading the stupid article.

Did they actually drive on an Indian ruin? They shouldn’t do that. Some alphabet agency should shoot them and their families. Gaia demands justice.

Everyone runs over Dinosaur ruins ALL THE TIME....

Eventually people will be driving over other people’s graves on a regular basis.

In my home country my ancestors ruins are probably being driven over all the time...

Some perspective is needed

Apparently thinking that a back east bureaucracy should loosen its hold on half the land area in the West make you a “Bundy supporter”
Apparently riding an ATV on a county rode is roughly the same as doing donuts in a archaeological dig site.

“”If there’s one thing that will get your point across and persuade the general public to support your cause, it’s driving a bunch of ATVs through Native American ruins and burials.”

So...50 years ago they built a road over those burial grounds? That is what they drove on, a road that the BLM had closed for no known reason.

Why do people get all up in a fuss over some broken pottery laying around to the point that it is illegal to drive near it or on it.

If you think about it many of those sacred sites are where ancient people discarded crap they weren’t using anymore. We call them landfills nowadays.

There is a big rock out this way called Independence Rock it has thousands of names and dates scratched into it by various people over the years. People recording their part of history while they were crossing Wyoming to settle the West.
We can’t do that anymore because it is a Federal crime. We have given Government permission to log our history for us it is stored on NSA computers and on numerous forms scattered through the files of the Fedgov.

You know the road doesn't go directly over burials because the BLM and Indians still allow mountain bikes to use the road.

This “Native American burial site” crap has been around since Wounded Knee. First of all, most Plains indians didn’t bury their deadh they left them on scaffolds to be picked clean by the crows. And where burial was common, since the indians didn’t recognize any boundaries, they buried their fallen wherever was convenient. Therefore, ANY place could be a “burial site.”

So this is just another lie by the fascists in charge.

Millions of vehicle miles are driven over hundreds of former Indian sites all across the country every day.

But this is something else that'll likely resonate well with the Idiocracy tonight @ 6pm.

Any nation whose course can be altered even a smidgen over tripe like this is destined to find THE iceberg anyway.

Native American ruins are all over out here in the southwest. Houses have been built over them. Malls. Highways. Many of them are preserved in places like Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde.

"How do you know they know they were Bundy supporters"

Because they are both talking Posse Comitatus. And Bundy's son led the group.

Many freepers are also Posse Comitatus, in fact, Posse Comitatus has become a main stream group in the GOP. Before you know it, they will be using Elohim City as voting place for the GOP primary
