Birder respond to armed Militia takeover of Oregon National Wildlife Sanctuary

I am not entirely sure that this is the place to put this but I enjoyed this response very much.

Warning-from-the-Birding-Community-to-the-Terrorists-in-Oregon-We-re-Watching-You


Just a friendly warning from the birding and wildlife photography community to the Oregon terrorists. We are watching your every move, and we have been watching you for a long time. And yes absolutely you are domestic terrorists of the worst kind, and the truth about your decades of constant poaching of protected wildlife around Malheur and other wildlife refuges, national parks, national forests and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) lands has been well-documented. For years those of us who are wildlife photographers, birdwatchers and carers of wildlife, have been documenting the activities of you poachers and criminals around many of our nation's wildlife refuges. With our powerful cameras, and ability to move unseen in the wilderness, we have found and documented your illegal hunts, your illegal traps and all sorts of illicit activities, and are constantly feeding that information to law enforcement, and we have finally got many of you poachers on the run and into jails. And I for one am a westerner sick to death of you welfare queens and cheats living off of BLM land, illegally gutting our wilderness and our wildlife. ...
the letter continues...

Me too. If I were president, federal troops would have settled the hash of these enemies of wildlife and the public lands on day one.

79 year old birder knocks down militia. These armed thugs are trying to control everyone who wants to go onto the bird sanctuary.

Quote:
BURNS, OREGON — Grandfather of four Robert Saunders says he was just out to check on some young burrowing owls at the crack of dawn this morning when he was confronted by a “red-faced pudgy man with a big gun”.

And things got physical when Saunders refused the barked orders to halt and identify himself.

...

“So I said there was no darn way I was getting down on the ground and he poked me in the shoulder — so, yeah, I did a leg take-down.

...

“He landed pretty hard on his back and I could tell he was winded because he started moaning and trying to suck air into his lungs. And that was that.”

...

“We’re hoping this is an isolated incident and we’re asking the elderly not to knock any more militants on their ass,” said the grinning FBI agent.

What is the world coming to, and I am not meaning 79 year old gentlemen flattening the brain dead.
