Entrenched Oregon militant: ‘Rioters in Ferguson’ are treated better than us and it’s ‘unfair’

Published

on

One of the four remaining armed militants occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge complained on Thursday that law enforcement was being “unfair” because protesters in Ferguson, Missouri have been given better treatment.

After three weeks of occupying the refuge, one of the occupiers opined on the DefendYourBase live YouTube stream that militants had brought guns with them for personal protection, and that it was law enforcement who escalated the situation by killing Robert “LaVoy” Finicum at a traffic stop earlier this week.

According to the man, the remaining militants had been told that they could leave the refuge without being charged. But authorities said that one man, named Sean, would be arrested because he was wanted on a federal warrant.

“It feels unfair because a lot of those rioters in Ferguson, they went to the riots with intentions of robbing and burning down cities and everybody here came with intentions of thinking it’s a peaceful revolution,” the militant insisted, adding that “everybody brought guns I guess as self defense measures.”

“So, we’re still stuck here, four of us,” he said. “They’re telling us it’s safe to leave, but it’s not.”

Trump is ‘losing it’ and ‘devolving down into rabbit holes of conspiracy theories’: Conservative TV host

Published

on

On Monday, conservative CNN talk show host S. E. Cupp slammed President Donald Trump for his behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think no matter who the president is, there's always going to be someone criticizing the response to a disaster," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "But something that has been true since the beginning of this is that the president really had a real opportunity, handed one, to unify people, to lead, to set a tone, and he's really squandering it, isn't he?"

"I think we should say, Brianna, this has long gone past offensive, and distasteful. I think what we're seeing is the president losing it," said Cupp. "I don't think that the president's behavior is that of a healthy, stable, balanced person. That he can't focus all of his energy and efforts and attention on this global pandemic, on securing the physical and economic safety and health of this country, is very alarming. Instead, devolving down these rabbit holes of conspiracy theories, baseless conspiracy theories as you pointed out, attacking women for their looks and their weight, you know, threatening governors, one in Michigan for mail-in voting, another in North Carolina for not guaranteeing a full house at the RNC."

On CNN Monday, former Trump adviser and Republican lobbyist David Urban defended President Donald Trump's decision to take a golf outing as coronavirus deaths approached 100,000.

"Every death is horrible," Urban said. However, "people die in America every day, and just to expect the president to sit frozen in his office is unrealistic."
