Oregon Occupation vs. Federal Prosecution Overreach

They don't look like terrorists to me, they look like pissed off citizens...

A grassfire is not terrorism.  

What could go wrong?  While I am not a big supporter of civil disobedience occupy protests, I understand why these ranchers feel like they are being abused by federal authorities (they are getting screwed over on a plea deal that the federal prosecutors appealed but they could not). Donald Douglas is on this with posts herehere and here.  Instapundit is also posting herehere (it is only terrorism when conservatives do it), here and here (the left is demanding the media call this occupy group terrorists, I don't recall the left doing the same for Occupy Wallstreet).

Legal Insurrection: Some occupy groups are more equal than others.

RedState/Caleb Howe: #Yallqaaeda: The New Leftist Obsession With Shooting People

Conservative Treehouse: What's Going On In Oregon (this is a read the whole thing link, it explains what has been going on historically with this wildlife refuge and these ranchers and why the federal prosecutors singled these ranchers out)

Hot Air: FBI offering to settle this protest peacefully (as much as I support the Hammond family, the Bundy bunch should do so)

Wombat: DaTechGuy: The Obama Administration dumber than the Bundy Brood and Not all useful idiots are Leftists

TOM: When Crazy Is Against The Law

Reason: The absurdly harsh penalties that prompted this protest

  1. This is how the Lefties always get their way.

    Now, yeah, the Choom Gang could go all Branch Davidian on these guys, but what does that do in an election year?
