From tampons to french vanilla creamer: Armed Oregon militants update their occupation wish list
One week into their uninvited stay at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the militia members who have occupied the park have given no indication that they will be leaving soon, posting a wish list of items they have requested from their backers.
Despite the fact that the local “safety committee” founded by leader Ammon Bundy has asked them to leave, the list — posted on social media — indicates that they are in it for the long haul, with requests for bedding, throw rugs, shelving units to store food and ice chests.
Previously, the occupiers were mocked for their requests for “snacks,” indicating a short stay, but the new list has expanded to food item staples including eggs, flour, coffee, hamburgers and hot dogs, french vanilla creamer and assorted condiments including Miracle Whip.
Apparently many of the militiamen rushed to Oregon to help hold the park without packing properly for freezing temperatures, with the list also asking for boots, socks, thermal underwear, snow pants, warm blankets and sleeping bags.
Personal care items requested include body wash, shampoo, tampons, shaving cream, razors and deodorant.
