As law enforcement moved in on Wednesday to contain militants who have occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for weeks, a broadcast from inside the refuge showed angry militiamen promising a “bloodbath.”
A live video feed from the DefendYourBase YouTube channel, showed several militants operating a large excavator. At least one of the militants was dressed in military-style gear and carrying a rifle.
“The media has been ordered to leave, and that means they are coming to kill us and they don’t want them to see that!” the man yelled into the camera. “They’re going to murder all of us and the media are cowards.”
“The media has been waiting for a bloodbath this whole time we’ve been here!” he exclaimed. “Now, there’s going to be one and they’re told to run? Because the feds don’t want them to know who is murdering us!”
Continuing to shout into the camera, the militia member called for the American people to join his cause: “Right now, it is on!”
“What you going to do when the militia comes after you, FBI?” a second militant added.
“Get here, get some,” the first militant said, pleading for volunteers with military training. “This is history in the making.”
“There are no laws in this United States now!” the man insisted. “This is a free-for-all Armageddon. Any LEO or military or law enforcement or feds that stand up and f*ck their oath — don’t abide by their oath — are the enemy!”
“If they stop you from getting here, kill them!”
