(CNN) The armed occupiers of a wildlife refuge in Oregon say they will turn themselves in on Thursday morning, hours after Cliven Bundy — the father of protest leader Ammon Bundy — was arrested by federal agents.
Honestly…what did you think was going to happen? Did you think thousands of passionate Americans would rise up to join your “so called” patriotic crusade in an ultimate battle of Freedom against Tyranny!!!!!
Well no, of course that didn’t happen! You overtook a bird sanctuary in the middle of ‘bumfuck’ nowhere! Literally no one gave a single shit as to what you were talking about and most people still don’t give a shit. As patriotic Americans, you should have understood that we Americans could care less about something unless it directly affects our personal lives AND MAYBE 1-2 people closest to us. Even then, sometimes we still don’t give a shit. Its hard enough to get people to fill out a petition or vote for things they care about, and you were asking people to leave their families, travel hundreds of miles, all for the opportunity to sit in a bird house “indefinitely” with complete strangers awaiting a bloody battle with the United States Government???… Not too smart guys, not too smart all… but I guess that is pretty obvious at this point…
I rest my case.
Here is a suggestion for your next siege, take over something where there are actual human beings within 100 miles. The federal building occupied was in a city with a total population of 228 people, yes TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY EIGHT PEOPLE. There are literally more people on the 8th floor in my office building than in the ENTIRE city of which you occupied a SINGLE building. I mean, at least when the smelly hippies started Occupy Wall Street, they WENT TO WALL STREET!!!
The truth is, I feel bad for you guys… because there may be some legitimate gripe to be had, but at this point, all people can talk about is how some guy thought he was going to fight the federal government from under a bright blue tarp, and unfortunately it did not work out for that guy.
P.S. Mr. Bundy, you are no Rosa Parks sir.
