Bundy Ranch Facebook page targeted by violent rhetoric, death wishes, haters

March 6, 2016

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Sons and supporters of Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who rebuffed agents from the Bureau of Land Management and FBI as they attempted to confiscate his cattle in 2014, traveled to Burns, Oregon in an act of civil disobedience to bring attention to the jailing of father-and-son ranchers, Dwight and Steven Hammond, on federal terrorism charges.

Whether or not you agree with the actions of the Bundy family and their supporters in taking over a vacant federally owned building on the Malheur Wildlife Reserve near Burns, most Americans would wish for a peaceful resolution to the “standoff.”  But from the beginning of the standoff, the Bundy Ranch Facebook page has been spattered with posts calling for the Oregon protesters and their families to be slaughtered.  Since the killing by law enforcement officers of LaVoy Finicum, a rancher from Arizona who acted as spokesman for the “occupiers,” the vicious rhetoric has only intensified.

Prior to deleting violent and obscene posts, administrators of the page have been capturing disturbing screen shots of calls for violence against the Bundys, their supporters, and ranchers in the West.  Although some of the posts can be attributed to internet trolls and others looking to incite online warfare, the following post by somene identifying himself as the ordinary-looking James Brent made it clear he wanted all the protesters dead.

What would cause a poly-sci professor to pray for the deaths of an entire group of Americans who were peacefully protesting government overreach?  James Brent’s Facebook page reveals his profession: San Jose State University professor.  He studied political science at Ohio State.

The San Jose State directory confirms that James Brent, the man “praying” for the Bundys to be shot and killed, teaches political science at a California university. Unless someone with a grudge is impersonating him, this appears to be his genuine identity.

But other posts make merely “praying” for the Oregon protesters to be “shot and killed” seem tame.

ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who pressed Ted Cruz about his promise to “carpet-bomb” ISIS, may want to question S.D. Wardell and Carter Wayne Allen about their desire to carpet-bomb Americans.

Renee Wheeler and Sherry Hartin apparently think the ranchers are worse than the ISIS terrorists currently ravaging Syria and Iraq, calling for their elimination post-haste.

Aaron Ancheta fondly recalled the brave acts of Janet Reno during the finest hours of Clinton’s term as president.

Edwin Hooper called for killing families and waterboarding children.

Dave Haney suggested murdering the Oregon protesters with “ricin laced food.”

Following the killing of LaVoy Finicum by law enforcement officers, numerous gleeful and sadistic posts celebrating his death were posted on the Bundy Ranch Facebook page, like this one by Marcella Moine.

This post by Martyn J. Hall is particularly giddy.

Derek Jimenez, Jerry Lee Jackson, and Matthew John showed great pleasure not only in the death of LaVoy, but also in the thought that the remaining protesters would be shot to death.

The managers of the Bundy Ranch Facebook page have had their work cut out for them, ensuring that the visible posts on the page are civil.  This pitched incivility seem to have rattled even the sheriff overseeing operations in and around Burns, Oregon and the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.  Sheriff David Ward was quoted in the February 12 Washington Post, making this plea to warring factions in his community:

We can’t continue to go on tearing each other apart and hating each other because of differences of opinions. Get off Facebook. Write a letter. Leave out the insults. And if you’re so persuaded, turn off the computer and get on your knees and pray for your leadership, because there’s no way we’re going to fix this country if we’re all mad at each other and fighting over everything[.]

Most Americans would agree with Sheriff Ward.  There is always space in a free society for disagreement and peaceful protests.  Let’s hope America’s “safe space” for peaceful disagreement isn’t overrun with obscene calls for the killing of Americans whose only crime is to defy federal overreach.

    Obvioulsy, being pro-life and pro Manly-man (this one, I have to say, made me giggle aloud) doesn’t exactly make you pro-truth. May I remind you of the outcome of Mr Bundy’s 2014 brush with the law? Does the name Jerad Miller mean anything to you? Why not mentionning the repeated refusal of Mr Bundy to pay for his use of federal land? Why claiming that the Malheur refuge was vacant, as if it were a valid excuse to occupy it illegally? Would you appreciate my coming to your Pro-manly-man abode while you are on holidays and make it my home? (Warning: I’d take the trophies down. Gives me the creeps.) What about Mr Bundy’s partisans’ rabid attacks and death threats against Sheriff Ward?

    • Ms. Jean – It seems that based on your use of ‘holidays’ as opposed to ‘vacation’ that you are not a citizen of the United States.
      Nevertheless, perhaps you may wish to avail yourself of a modicum of education in the Constitution for the United States of America. Specifically Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 – “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;”
      This is the pertinent part of our Constitution that defines exactly what “land” the federal government may own. Notice that the only land mentioned is 10 square miles, which is the District of Columbia aka DC? The remaining ‘Places’ – not land – are designated to be only for the specific use of military installations. The Malheur Refuge is NOT a military installation, and is therefore an Unconstitutional holding by the federal government. As a matter of fact, it was never purchased by the federal government from Oregon. It was set aside as a wildlife preserve by President Theodore Roosevelt on August 18, 1908 in his Executive Order 929. This means that a sitting president STOLE land from a sovereign state via executive fiat, using a Power that is not delegated to him by the Constitution in Article II. The President cannot write law; only Congress can write laws.
      As for any “rabid attacks and death threats” against Sheriff Ward – prove that any occurred. Based on my research, none have; else I am quite certain that Sheriff Ward and the State of Oregon would have pressed charges against any and all who did same.
      The men and women who took control of the refuge did so lawfully and Constitutionally. They broke no Natural Laws; only capricious and temporary “laws” created only for the expediency of the federal government to control the behavior of its people.

        You guys keep parroting a bankrupt legal theory that was shot down in court years ago as if by sheer repetition it will suddenly become valid.

        • ted

          Actually it is people like you that has destroyed our democracy. It is short sighted liberals who know nothing about our Constitution or our history but rather spew filth & lies that you have been programed to think & say. You are as Un-American as the terrorists that hate us. We will be destroyed from within from the likes of you. May God have mercy on this country!!

        One of the most interesting conversations I’ve had was with a couple who had a trail ride business in Southern Utah, They were from the UK. We talked about how much we loved the western states until we got to see how far too many of the ranchers , and others there had no respect for anything but profit. We agreed that most were horribly short sighted and selfish. The majority in these states also seemed to have no sense of wonder, when it came to the amazingly beautiful states they were fighting to trash. We don’t live in a wide open world anymore. There are 7 billion people on this planet. We have pushed most of the wonderful lives god created into tiny corners, and cruel and sadistic humans won’t even let them live as intended there. My family no longer eats beef. We have found that to many ranchers do not consider themselves part of the American family, and feel they have the right to trash what they want, when they want.. like the Bundys at Malheur Wildlife Refuge. These are not manly men. Reagan started ALEC, and the end of the middle class. Princeton has said that ALEC is our government now, they have destroyed the US Democracy.

      Go on ahead and try to come on over to my place, trouser-stain.

      I have .45 reasons why you’ll just wet yourself at the door.

      Death threats against Ward? Evidence? Oh wait, I forgot… evidence and facts are anathema to progressive tards like you.

      Get lost, child.

    • John "Big John" Johnson

      At the very least having equality of the laws is important. There was the “occupy wall street” movement where people did not go to jail. The same for “black lives matter” groups. Bill Clinton visiting polling locations also against the law. From the bottom to the top our criminal government is selectively deciding who to imprison. Its a rogue government.

      • GW

        “Occupy Wall Street” didn’t take over places with guns. Big difference.

        Play with fire you’re going to get burned. Too bad it took the death of a man for you all to realize this.

  2. Matthew John

    I was shared on, I made it. I really made it. I would like to thank God. My family and friends. I would like to thank everyone who helped me get here. Thank you.

    • ted

      Carrie, You are a liar & you know it! Liberals are so filthy I feel like I need a shower every time I talk to one. Liberals are Un-American & want to destroy this country. The hate & death threats, bigotry & racism comes from liberals. You are a scourge on America!

    • John "Big John" Johnson

      Matthew John… we are all reporting you to local authorities. Theres no place for you and your vile hatred.

  3. Carrie McMarmot

    Have you ever looked at the Facebook pages of these “patriots” and militia members?? They are full of death threats, hatred, bigotry and racism toward liberals, democrats, President Obama, Native Americans, African Americans, Muslims, Jews, Mexicans, homosexuals, the list goes on and on. They despise anyone who is not a white, conservative Christian. You should do a story on that. So, no, I do not have any sympathy for the whiny rednecks sitting in jail where they belong, nor their butthurt Bundy Ranch page. Boo Hoo.

    • Annie Rutherford

      They are not very smart people. They threaten , destroy, walk around with a bullying , just try me stance… then whine like crazy when they are tried and they lose.

    • Bayushi

      No, no they’re not.

      Nice try, but no bananas.

      Sit down and be silent.

    • John "Big John" Johnson

      I have never seen that. I believe you are just making up lies like the main stream media does.

    the biggest problem on this planet is hate towards another living being simply because they live differently or have a different belief than you, does not give you the right to wish death or harm on living soul, if this is what you believe if you take joy in the death of another YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!!!!!! ALL LIFE MATTERS NOT JUST YOURS!!!!! i wish you peace and hope you find enlightenment and compassion and peace.. learn to love people not hate them, you can’t fight the fundamental law of the universe and for every action you take creates an equal and opposite reaction.. the harder you hate the more you will receive hate in return, learn to love and you shall in turn be loved.. i feel sooo sorry for you the haters you have my pity truly for you will never find peace or love or joy because you are unable to understand it because your full of anger and hate… its truly a sad day to be you and live in your world.. 🙁

    In recent history, one of the greatest acts of calculated insane hatred toward fellow human beings was carried out by the Hitler regime where people were literally treated with less regard than garbage. In the Washington DC holocaust museum, Evolution is identified as the key motivation and justification for Hitler spearheading this incredible unthinkable breakdown in society in his insane quest to perfect the Aryan Race. Evolution is having the identical result in our society hear in America.

    Many people do not realize that Evolution completely undermines the definition of Law in a free Republic. The Truths that we are endowed by our Creator with Unalienable Rights become totally irrelevant to the Evolutionist. 57,000,000 million unborn babies have had their Unalienable Right to Life removed, I believe, as a direct result of our obedience to Evolution. Now we are are seeing increased top down lawlessness in the removal of our Unalienable Right to own property. The only difference is that property owners can stand up and let their objection be known resulting in the unthinkable hatred of men against them. I believe that if the unborn could speak they would receive the same spewing forth of hateful filth from those that worship Evolution and secularist dogma.

    The solution is repentance, beginning in the church, for allowing this top down lawlessness to take place before our eyes. Christians have convinced themselves that top down lawlessness should be obeyed, when it should be resisted. Not doing so is in fact sin. I am not talking about being an anti-government anarchist, but rather being pro-Constitution and intent of the founders, since they identified so well how Liberty (a huge Biblical principal) is achieved–simply receiving it as a gracious endowment from our Creator. That would be a very good place to start.

    These domestic terrorists are in prison where they belong. And they are going to be there for a very long time.

  7. Fantastic write up filled with the truth, not the crap coming from liberal America.

  8. opps, part of my website got cutoff in the copy and paste

  9. Jimmy Smith

    Someone should post screenshots of all the death threats issued by the Bundy followers, especially towards the State Trooper who shot that Leroy whatshisname.

    US Government Agency that has a duty to STEAL land
    “The Division is also responsible for the acquisition of real property by eminent domain for the federal government”

    and the soils under them, were not granted by the Constitution to the United States, [[[but were reserved to the States respectively]]]. Secondly, the new States have the same rights, sovereignty, and jurisdiction over this subject as the original States. Thirdly, the right of the United States to the public lands, and the power of Congress to make all needful rules and regulations for the sale and disposition thereof, [[[conferred no power to grant to the plaintiffs the land in controversy]]] in this case. The judgment of the Supreme Court of the [[[State of Alabama is]]], therefore, affirmed.

    **Federal can own land upon these bases**

    U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17) ” and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the [[[Consent of the Legislature of the State]]] in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings”

    **Arguers will eclipse and construe the Constitution “…” to justify (property clause – Article 4:3:2); Take it out-of context of creating a new state (Per Section 1)***

    The Congress shall have Power to [dispose of] and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting (definition: with regard to) the Territory or other Property [belonging] to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, [or of any particular State].
    – Upon Statehood the area is no longer a “Territory”

    **Arguers will also play a “finders keepers” game claiming a belonging to the US without providing any justification of such claim**
