These people are not a militia. They’re nothing more than a bunch of gun happy, right-wing radicals who hate the government and converged on Cliven Bundy’s ranch in a proud showing that they support a man who refuses to pay fees that multiple courts have upheld for violating federal law by letting his cattle illegally graze on federal lands.
They’re not a militia, they’re idiots.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines militia as:
Militia: a group of people who are not part of the armed forces of a country but are trained like soldiers; a part of the organized armed forces of a country liable to call only in emergency; a body of citizens organized for military service.
A bunch of random anti-government fanatics converging on a scumbag’s ranch in Nevada because he refuses to obey the law doesn’t fall into the category of any those descriptions.
For some reason these anti-government radicals believe that a group of people getting together to shoot their guns in the woods constitutes a militia.
It doesn’t. All these people do is prove their mental instability by showcasing their paranoia as it relates to our government.
Think about it. These Nevada idiots really believe that because the Bureau of Land Management backed down when they realized that violence might break out, due to their idiotic behavior, that somehow they’ve “won.” That alone proves how ignorant these people are.
If the government wants to seize Bundy’s cattle that have been illegally grazing, or even arrest him, they can and will. A handful of idiots with guns aren’t going to stop the government from enforcing court upheld federal laws.
The government backed down because they don’t want this to escalate into violence. Not because they can’t crush these fools with ease, but because this really isn’t an issue that should lead to violence. But if these people want to continue to go around pretending to be some “armed militia” standing in the way of the federal government carrying out a court order that says Cliven Bundy has repeatedly violated federal laws, it might eventually lead to violence.
And that’s when these morons will realize that a handful of mentally unstable people suffering from some kind of paranoid delusional disorder doesn’t equate to being a “militia,” and they damn sure aren’t any match to go up against the federal government.
