Racist cattle rustler, impressionist historian and de facto warlord Cliven Bundy emailed his faithful disciples this afternoon to inform them that even though the federal government is evil and terrible, they won't be suing the feds for not shooting him, because of some incoherent reasons:
On the heels of Bundy's new avocations as a defiant commander of armed wahoos and a purveyor of error-ridden historical blather on YouTube, his announcement not to antagonize the Bureau of Land Management seems a bit surprising. "The Bundy family has been approached many times by well known, highly effective lawyers from all over the country offering their services free of charge," the family's letter to supporters reads. "This case, they say; 'has the makings of greatness'. The crimes and civil rights violations committed by the BLM are a lawyers [sic] playground."
Nevertheless, the man behind The Shot Heard Round Nevada has decided not to sue because, apparently, he believes people are fallible, and also because they expect the state governor and local sheriff to get off their fallible asses and do something.
What that something is isn't exactly clear from the letter, pasted below. But the Bundys hint that they're starting some kind of a legal fund/organization to hold politicians accountable to the PEOPLE, you know, in some way other than an election or a campaign contribution.
Bundy Family Statement
It has been several weeks since the BLM's special forces came into the valley with guns raised, barricading our lands, stealing and destroying our property, and terrorizing the community. Their original plan was to occupy the land for seven weeks.
They would still be in the valley today if the people did not stand and demand departure. We can only imagine what would have happen if they were allowed to remain.
In the six days they were present on the land, people from the community were threatened and interrogated for simply being on there public lands, others were beat to the ground, boot on head, hauled off while their families watched in desperation with guns to their faces.
Others were violently thrown to the pavement, gang tackled to the rocks, tasered, threatened by guard dogs, and ultimately hundreds of lives balanced on the triggers of the BLM's special army. The people took the right action by standing up to these trained mercenaries.
If allowed to remain for the seven planned weeks, lives most assuredly would have been taken and the freedom we enjoy on this land would have been forever lost.
The Bundy family has been approached many times by well known, highly effective lawyers from all over the country offering their services free of charge. This case, they say; "has the makings of greatness".
The crimes and civil rights violations committed by the BLM are a lawyers playground.
We have chosen not to engage in legal action up to this point for two reasons. First, is simply because we have not felt impressed to do so. We understand that as humans we are limited to knowledge and understanding. We believe that the creator of this world possesses all knowledge and understanding.
We also know that if we seek this knowledge he will share it with us. Until recently, legal action has shown no benefit to this cause. The second, is time based, the people expected Sheriff Gillespie and Governor Sandoval to take action.
We felt it was important to give them ample time to do what is right, time enough to start investigating the crimes that were committed upon their constituents. The primary purpose of both their positions is to protect the lives & liberties of the people they serve, and be a buffer against outside threats.
It is disheartening to see them betray and run with open arms to the very entities that mock the constitution and threatened the peoples lives. Our governor and sheriff should have been our heroes, but yet they remain corrupted.
It is first and foremost the responsibility of the PEOPLE of the State of Nevada and Clark County to correct Governor Sandoval and Sheriff Gillespie, they work for us, not the federal government.
With a sense of sadness and duty we announce that we are assembling a team of legal advisers and will be seeking the wisest action in assisting the PEOPLE in re-establishing individual protection through government.
Our action will not be for the benefit of person or family. Any action taken will be an effort to protect individual rights and to restore the principles of the Constitution. As always; we will continue to seek the Lord's guidance in these matters.
We need Your Help!
Call to Action: Two Fridays ago around 30 people went to the Sheriff precinct and filed CRIME REPORTS on the action of the BLM agents, many others since then have done the same. The Sheriffs has taken no action in investigating these crimes.
We need everyone to contact the County Commissioners and insist that they put pressure on the Sheriff to protect the people. This fight will be won by the people.
Your voice is the difference.
