Like lots of other folks I kept my eye on the situation at the wildlife refuge near Burns, Oregon. I had my doubts that the occupation of the wildlife refuge was something the Sagebrush Warriors should have engaged in. I don’t question their intent or their integrity but I kind of felt this was one battle they should have passed up. It seems like all it did was to give the feds a chance to get even for being made to look so bad at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada in April of 2014. And you have to know, with their current Marxist mindset the feds will not just get mad, they will get even and then some.
However, Lavoy Finicum interested me. He was a Mormon rancher from Northern Arizona and seemed, from what I could see of him in videos to epitomize the Western lifestyle, and I in no way mean that in a derogatory sense. I have spent time in the West over the years. My family and I have camped and hiked over much of the country. I have talked to people who have had problems with the BLM and their confiscatory efforts at “acquiring” land. And Mr. Finicum had had his problems with the feds taking his water and generally harassing him. There seems to be sort of a federal agenda nowadays to get the ranchers off the land many places in the West and you have to wonder what the deal is. Does the land contain uranium or other valuable minerals that the feds and their corporate fascist buddies would like to make millions off of, even though it isn’t theirs? The fact that it isn’t theirs would pose no problem at all for them. After all, they’ve got the power so they can basically do what they want and if they lean hard enough on the local and county politicians and law officers, most of them won’t fight back. Some will but most won’t.
Anyway, Lavoy Finicum was part of the protest at the refuge in Oregon. He seemed like a mild sort of man, not a troublemaker, but like most Westerners used to be, he didn’t like being pushed around. Like many Southern folks he just wanted to be left alone to lead his life, care for his cattle, and not bother anyone. When the feds started coming after him he made some You Tube videos explaining why he was resisting what the feds were trying to do to him. I watched a couple of those before I wrote this article and watching them and seeing his clear line of reasoning in what he said, I thought “here is a marked man.” The feds don’t like people who resist and who carefully explain to whoever will listen why and what they are resisting. My first thought was that, if they can, they will get this guy–one more irritant out of their way, one more example of the Western lifestyle shoved down the memory hole.
The Westerners have the same identical problem we here in the South have. Their lifestyle, traditions, culture and all the rest are under assault just like ours is. They have become the victims of the current phase of “reconstruction” only most of them don’t realize what it is yet. They and the Southern folks really need to get together because the cultural Marxists have their way of life slated for destruction just as they have ours here in the South. For the New World Order to triumph, both the Southern and Western ways of life have to go.
I sincerely hope some folks in the West who wish to preserve their culture and lifestyle get to read this and that it will begin to make them think. We are all being subjected to cultural Marxism and ethnic cleansing and we need to help each other to find ways to resist.
Lavoy Finicum tried to resist in the way he knew how to. It cost him his life. I also watched the FBI video of when they were pursuing them. They claim he pulled a gun. Others in his vehicle said he was on his way to a meeting and had left his weapons back at the place the protesters occupied. It was pretty hard to tell from the video exactly what happened, and I watched it all the way through twice. It looked to me, like when he hit the snowbank and got out of his vehicle he had his hands in the air but then lowered them and that’s when they shot him. The police claim he was armed. It would be nice to see a real close up of him on the ground there after they shot him to see if there really was a gun or not. Knowing the feds penchant for “truth” I honestly have my doubts.
But the feds have now atoned for the sin of losing out at the Bundy Ranch in 2014, so we will have to see what ground angels fear to tread on that they will next stomp all over in their campaign to rid the West of real people.
