Who knew that moocher rancher Cliven Bundy would be the face of the next American revolution? Emboldened by their victory over the Bureau of Land Management where he and his supporters drove away the jack-booted thugs of the government in order to return to their cows their god-given right to eat where they damn well please, they have now set their sights even higher.
They are now planning to challenge the BLM’s banning of the use of all-terrain vehicles in part of Utah because why should only cows have the right to roam freely?
A band of angry citizens plans to ride all-terrain vehicles onto closed-off, federally managed public land Saturday in protest against the federal Bureau of Land Management, which many say has unfairly closed off a prized area, cheating residents of outdoor recreation.
The ride, organized by San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman, is a gambit to assert county sovereignty over Recapture Canyon, known for its archaeological ruins, that BLM officials say has been jeopardized from overuse. The canyon was closed to motor vehicles in 2007, the agency said, after two men forged an illegal seven-mile trail. Hikers and those on horseback are still allowed there.
It is clear that these people are itching for a shooting war to occur and want to provoke the BLM and the government into firing the first shot so that they can claim victimhood.
But the main event will be on Friday when they expect 10 to 30 million people to descend on Washington DC for something called Operation American Spring where by sheer force of numbers they will drive that usurper Barack Obama and his cronies from office and install true patriots as leaders.
This group is thinking big.
“We are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, leader of the Operation American Spring protest group. “They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”
Operation American Spring aims to pressure those lawmakers who remain – or are replaced by officials of their own choosing – “to sponsor and pass very Constitutionally crafted State legislation to dissolve the size, powers, scope and spending of the U.S. Government by 2/3rds.”
Organizers also anticipate “incremental nullification” by state legislatures of “all withholding taxes, employment taxes, employer taxes, and income taxes.”
You can read the manifesto of the group here which takes a somewhat big picture approach to planning this uprising, saying that “There is not much time and the only planning necessary is to select a starting date, which we have done, and then show up in Washington, D.C. on that date, and plan to stay for the duration.”
Key details are lacking for such a mass uprising such as when and where will they meet? DC is a big town after all. Is it near a convenient subway stop? Will there be portable toilets? Should we bring sunscreen and maybe a picnic lunch? The 1960s Black Power slogan “The revolution will not be televised” is likely to be true of this one.
I also notice that they issue their call to all patriots including ‘black, white, red, yellow, brown’. What do you mean by red and yellow people, Kemo Sabe?
