The not yet arrested Oregon protesters are upset that the FBI is blocking their cell phones and internet access.

LaVoy Finicum, martyr or moron?
Courtesy of OPB: 

OPB spoke with the remaining occupiers inside the refuge Sunday by cellphone. They say federal authorities have locked down their ability to make or receive calls. 

David Fry, one of the four remaining militants, said the FBI made it so the occupiers can’t make outgoing calls on their cellphones. Fry said he can receive incoming calls, but that the other three in the refuge appear unable to receive calls on their cellphones. The militants also said they’ve lost access to the internet.

Wait, no phone calls and no access to internet porn?

The feds are playing hardball now.

On the other hand none of these yahoos have been arrested or shot dead by the side of the road, so you know there's that.

Speaking of being shot by the side of the road, as expected the death of  LaVoy Finicum at the hands of law enforcement encouraged some sympathizers to form something called a "rolling protest" on Saturday.

It also inspired a truly horrible tribute song called, I kid you not, the Ballad of LaVoy Finicum (Cowboy's Stand for Freedom).

Let me say once again that if this had been a group of brown skinned Muslims taking over this building that the bodies would already be piled up to the sky and there would be no tribute songs or rolling protests to mark their passing.

      It has been reported that Cliven Bundy visited the family of Finicum in Cane, AZ which is smack in the middle of polymagy country where Warren Jeffs still rules.

    I am a cattle rancher and have only my mortgaged ranch. I am just fine working for what I have. I need no handouts.
    These so called cowboys are a bunch of misfit panhandler's. They wouldn't recognise hard work if they saw it.
    If they would harness all the energy they have used frightening law abiding folks and costing tax payers. Maybe they could contribute to society? Bunch of dumb meanies!

      It truly has divided that community. So many people want their old lives back, if that is even possible, and for the media and them to leave!

      Time to stop these handouts in the form of grazing rights, time to just let the wild horses stay instead of being rounded up and butchered.

    1. More importantly.

      Are they allowing him to have his French Vanilla creamer in jail?

      Are those pink jumpsuits chafing?

      Definitely a MORON! He wanted to die--suicide by cop? He depended on the $115,000 he got a year to use emotionally disturbed teen-agers as ranch hands, and now, because of his actions, no more foster teens. Any money for foster care is SUPPOSED to go toward the care of the kids--but he used it for his own purposes.

    This site, while sympathetic to the Bundy's cause, lays out a plausible, frame-by-frame analysis of the video of Finicum's shooting that concludes Finicum forced police to shoot him. The author sounds like he might have an LE background.

    1. But, like the Planned Parenthood videos, there is a faction of nutjobs and whackos that want to believe what they want to believe. No amount of analysis or debunking will sway these morons from believing that LaVoy was murdered for their righteous cause, no matter how deluded that was.

    The lone woman, which will not face charges once this is all shut down, said from jail that the FBI set him up to die. Yeah, right, that's why they released the graphic video.

    "Rolling Protest"? Don't you mean "Rolling Dumpster Fire"? It breaks my Bleeding Liberal Heart that these patriots exercising their rights are being denied the basic necessities, like internet and cell phone coverage. Oh, the inhumanity!

    1. I guess that cuts off their begging access for French Vanilla creamer and Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

      I don't remember anything in the Constitution regarding fundamental rights for internet or cell phone coverage. If there were, it would be FREE for everyone across the nation.

    And let me say one more time that I am very glad that this is not turning into a Ruby Ridge or Waco because that is what this bunch is hoping for.

    Say what you will about Levoy, he died doing what he loved- living stupid. The song absolutely sucks, and not in the good way. Don't quit your day job or try "America's got Talent".

  10. I am sick of these stupid asshats! They have disrupted life in a whole county (and beyond) with their incoherent nonsense. Keep 'em in jail until trial.

    Fuck those babied white "Men?". They should have been shot weeks ago. Sorry, if they were any other skin color they would have been dead already, perfect example of "white privilege".

    I've got to admit that when I first heard the term "white privilege" my hackles went up, because I have never felt particularly privileged. But, damn! If terrorizing a community, stalking federal employees, stealing federal vehicles and breaking into and trashing a federal facility isn't the very definition of white privilege, I don't know what is!

    1. Yup. We've been putting up with this RWNJ crap for a month too long. Any minority would have been closed down in less than an hour.

  14. The live streams on Twitter (#OregonStandoff) or news feed (oregonlive.com) are HILARIOUS to follow. Information is "intel," THOUSANDS of PATRIOTS are getting ready to descend on Burns to assist in this RIGHTEOUS struggle for FREEDOM; and this guy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvZ_L9JsUsw)is still there.

    David Fry is allowed incoming calls but can't call out. Revolution Radio on youtube had him on the phone today...I listened for a couple of hours..it could still be on-going. Anyway RRadio let callers call in (which I'm sure the FBI allowed so they can record everything). The Hatriots are saying what brass balls this kid has...that they have 100's of malitia coming to help him..and saying he should be president. Fry's shortest conversation was with his parents about 1 minute. I half way expected them to ask him when he's bringing the family car back home.

    Cliven Bundy (father of jailed Ammon Bundy) has sent a certified notice to Obama, Oregon sheriff and "Internet to the World" that he will not stand down. He is egging it on even though his son has pled with the holdouts to leave. Check Cliven's certified notarized letter. Malheur is spelled wrong.

    1. Time for Cliven to pay all those back grazing fees or have his ranch and all his assets SEIZED! I am tired of listening to his fucking bullshit. If the Feds had nipped his little rebellion in the bud, this latest debacle would never have happened.

    Let's at least acknowledge that for all his faults, the man did wear a mighty fine hat. Sure he lacked the common sense god gave a gopher and he died a senseless self-initiated death but let's not deny the man his hat.

    And fashionable western-style shirt, also too.

  18. It's time to add the category "Mormon rancher" to the terrorist watch lists. And the no-fly list. Now, if we could just get them on the no-whining list, that would be something.
