We realize you saw what follows from MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell last night. The segment includes remote coverage of a US terrorist who has joined in occupying a federal building in the Great State of Oregon. Under the guidance and tutelage of the Cliven Bundy family, dozens of US anarchists and militia (and only the heavens know what else) have invaded a US wildlife refuge.
The man spotlighted in the video has been very visible and on the forefront of the seditious takeover of the facility. It seems he developed a publicity niche that accomplishes two points. First, his antics and highly unusual behavior garnered the attention of he so obviously cherishes. Seconds, his antics highlight the abnormal behavior inherent in many of the anarchist who took over the facility. Another key point of consideration. You will notice the man under the tarp, indicated he is on site to support the two Hammond family members who have reported to prison related to charges and conviction of arson on federal land. Of particular significance, the Hammonds have reported to prison and prior to reporting commented about non-support of the wildlife preserve terrorists.
One last point. The anarcho-terrorist in the news segment indicates he is not part of an armed insurrection. We published this piece yesterday with two clear martyrdom seekers, who might (instead) actually live as showboater publicity seekers.
The first segment is eleven minutes in duration, but it is intriguing to put it mildly.
The nut case reveals like a turtle to speak about his form of "patriotism" while speaking of the rights of the states. One has to wonder if the man realizes the Koch brothers are major influencers of state and local politics across eh full breadth of the nation. Oligarchs who would love nothing better than state legislative and official stooges granting their desire to purchase western lands.
The "tarp guy" spoke of local and state authority and I believe he mentioned federalism at least twice. As a western state rancher, it is impossible the "tarp guy" doesn't know of the Kochs and their influence over state and local politics via ALEC sponsored model legislation.
Anyone who believes in the prospect of modern-day federalism is either a libertarian (all of which are conservatives) or a Koch stooge. Since, it is obvious the 'tarp guy' is well read, I leave the video segments wondering which part of federalism does he hang is hat and spur: Koch stooge or propagandized nut case who serves as fodder for willing and uber wealthy oligarchs?
The "tarp guy" seems to be an intelligent individual who is so consumed with anarcho propaganda his paradigm has actually flipped to that of the insane. There isn't a normal person on Earth (other than a hunter) who would cloak himself in a rocking chair with a shotgun on his lap and drape himself in a tarp.
