Militia members who took over the bird sanctuary in Oregon are engaged in harassment and intimidation of locals.

Courtesy of NBC News: 

Local law enforcement is accusing armed protesters who seized an Oregon wildlife refuge of harassment and intimidation. 

In a statement Monday, Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward described an "uptick" in reports of "law enforcement officers and community members being followed home; of people sitting in cars outside their homes, observing their movements and those of their families; and of people following them and their families as they move around the community." 

Ward added, "While not direct physical threats, these activities are clearly designed to try to intimidate." 

Federal employees of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the site occupied by the protestors, also reported "a number of uncomfortable instances" of "unknown" outsiders idling outside their homes, watching them and initiating debates about their employment. 

"Many of these confrontations are taking place as their employees are grocery shopping, running errands with their families and trying to lead their day-to day lives," Ward said.

Gee what tough guys.

Bunch of overweight bullies is what they are.

In other news a judge has said that the county will charge Bundy and his associates up to $70,000 a day for the increased security.

So yes this little occupation is working out perfectly.

P.S. Well it looks like I got fooled by a parody site as well. In an earlier version I shared a story that came from  a site that seemed legit, but turned out to be having a laugh.

Oh well that kind of thing is bound to happen eventually.

    To repeat what has been said many times before: if these terrorists were Natives, or Muslims, or Blacks, they'd be hounded by the local police before the sun had set on the first day.
    Instead, a bunch of yokel bullies are allowed to occupy and intimidate our jointly-owned land. They should be fined -- and jailed.

      The last time the Bundys held a misinformation festival on their ranch, there were loaded weapons pointed at Federal officials. Nothing happened to anybody. One arrest was made, on an unrelated warrant. So it's no wonder they think they're untouchable.

    I'd be so pissed at those militia/domestic terrorists if I was living in that community! Don't those idiots realize that bird refuge is most likely the life blood of that community? No bird watchers = no money. I don't think folks realize how much the majority of westerners take advantage of federal land for recreation. States like Texas that very very little public land swarm to NM and Colorado for recreation, because those states are rich in public lands that EVERYONE can enjoy, not just ranchers, miners, loggers, and oil/gas companies. Bundy's followers may still be occupying, but they are losing the PR battle.

      These domestic terrorists just want something for nothing, they want free land.

      Bunch of moochers,pretending to be patriots and have no idea why militias were formed in 1776.

      Would be interesting to see how many of them are using federal land for grazing and not paying.

      That "using land and not paying" was what started the last confrontation with the Bundys. Everybody who uses public lands is supposed to pay grazing fees. They don't want to. Little Bundy was the proud recipient of a $500,000 FEDERAL loan back a few years. Which, no doubt, he has no intention of paying back.

      "These domestic terrorists just want something for nothing"

      And yet they are the first to scream about lazy 'blah' people on welfare, while applauding politicians who want to cut food programs for hungry children and people who are elderly, disabled or veterans.

      Free stuff for them = good
      Free stuff for anyone else = very, very bad

      No, it's not. The disclaimer is usually loud and clear at the bottom of the page. If not there, it's in the "about us" section.

      Mis-information is running wild. It is our own responsibility to keep it in check. All of us. But, especially journalists and bloggers who should know always to check their sources.

    Excuse me, but why are these terrorists allowed to roam around? Drive around? Get mail?
    This is utterly ridiculous. Either drone them or arrest their families on the outside as accomplices and keep them locked down until they starve themselves out.

    Anyone who says there is no such thing as white privilege, well this is it. Any minority or non christian would have been slaughtered already.

    To all non-minorities, this is a fine, fine example of white privilege -- regardless of whether you choose to or "feel like" you use it or not. I am hurt, offended, and constantly reminded of "my place" in this society every second this so-called standoff is allowed to continue. Yes, I am taking this personally for the fact that if my son were to take a "peaceful" stand for what he believed in with a gun, he would face a guaranteed death.

    This event is a big fuck you to all the progressives in America and it lets you know what mentality is still running the county. The US can terrorize other countries thousands of miles away, kill their children, destroy their land and resources, and displace surviving families but can't remove 15 dudes from a building in the middle of nowhere and now allow them to terrorize a nearby small community? What the FUCK!?!?!

    Where are the protests from white progressive Americans that are soooo against this tyranny, ignorance, and bullying? After all, this is your fight and your responsibility to fix and resolve. What other group can put out a call to action for the entire community: women, minorities, LGBT, non-Christians, and every group this terrorist cell hates to re-occupy the building and return it to the people they have stolen privilege and use from? Answer: None!

    The message is loud and clear to me what the reality of America is and it makes me sick!

  13. The story about the old man, while funny, is not true. It comes from a Canadian paper that is their version of the The Onion. I wish it was true. this group is most definitely a group of domestic terrorist and I do NOT understand why they have not been arrested. As a veteran, it is my view that a blatant attempt to put things in motion to overthrow the government is Treason and should be treated as such. Why aren't they in a federal Pen?

    I was married in Harney county. The day after 9/11 on a big ass bicycle ride with 2000 other riders. (Cycle Oregon.. It's a blast)

    As a kid I attended steens mt hell camp.. I mean Steen's Mt X country camp. If you run, are a teen living in the great northwet.. Steen's is a rite of passage.
    http://steens.camp/
    (There's a great video of teens running though the paths.. It triggers me.. 😜 But gives a great idea of the beauty of the area)

    Swear to a god I don't believe in.. If these small dicked, never served, stolen valor ass wipes ruin one of the most beautiful PUBLIC lands
    In our nation.. They will wish for stronger gun control. This area is scared to runners, Oregonians (conservative and liberal) cyclists.. Birders.. Man. That group is filled with serious mutha fuckers.. You don't mess with birders.

    And yes, I send them a box a dicks. Money well spent.

    Ha! I read this here this morning and completely fell for it! Probably because I went to an Audubon Society talk on owls here in Portland OR last night. 400 folks ready to take down the interlopers before the burrowing owls start to nest. Not really, of course they are more civilized than that, but very aware that they and the rest of us OWN that federal land!

    7:55 am - Completely agree with you except on one point. You state that "this is your fight and your responsibility to resolve." It is all of our fights. Yes, white people need to stand up and be counted as being horrified by these Neanderthals and the kid gloves with which they are being treated. One problem is that these guys profess to be willing to die to make their point - which is very much a terrorist move - but our Federal agents should not be forced to put their lives on the line to round up these idiots. When the stakes escalate to death, only diplomacy will extract all from the corner they've occupied.

    Someone else suggested that their families be sequestered somewhere and that these clowns be constrained to the site. No trips, no food, although I'm iffy on power. Anyway, we need to start making them pay. When they are hungry and uncomfortable, the prospect of waiting this out will look bleaker and bleaker.
