I’m going to admit, the situation with the Oregon Militia is really starting to worry me. Before you read, know that this article isn’t going anywhere, it’s just me venting and expressing fear over an incredibly stupid situation.
Now, let me make this clear. The Oregon Militia does not scare me. At all. I think they’re one of the biggest jokes to ever enter this country uninvited. In fact, so far, the only person they managed to kill with their guns is one of their own. And, I’ll completely admit, the fact that one of them died fighting over a gun with another one is beyond Stormtrooper level incompetence and sort of hilarious.
Here’s what the Oregon Militia makes me scared of though. Our government.
Think about this. One of the things that started the Oregon Militia on their little temper tantrum is the fact that while they really wanted to use that sanctuary for their cattle, they were, supposedly, coming to the defense of two government authorities who burned down part of the woods in order to cover up their illegal hunting.
So, the Militia comes to the aid of rouge government authorities and, suddenly, the authorities show up and treat these guys wonderfully. Giving them the ability to make food runs, giving them snacks, letting them get deliveries (which you know have weapons in them occasionally) and, as of recent, letting them tear down the fences protecting the endangered species and setting forth to ruin the land with their cattle.
This is what scares me. It’s not that the Oregon Militia is clearly being aided by the government, it’s that the government seems to be more aided by the Oregon Militia.
These actions made by the agents out there that should be stopping them now show something far scarier than a bunch of moronic rednecks. It shows an outright disregard for the law by these federal agents.
I won’t even get into the massive double standard this has cast on the race issues facing America because, holy shit, you cannot deny that fact.
But this is showing signs of an uprising.
Now, I know they can’t win. Rednecks are one of the biggest joke villains in history for a reason. They never win. They’re awful at fighting effectively and, let’s face it, dumb as hell. But they’re VERY effective at getting people hurt by accident and when this comes to a head, which it will, people are going to get hurt and that terrifies me.
Anyways, I just wanted to vent about this. Not really going anywhere just…I don’t know…wanted to dump out some errant thoughts.
