Did you not read what I wrote?
These clowns can protest--peacefully. That's within their rights. But once you start waving guns around, it's no longer peaceful. Peaceful would have been a sit in or some such.

Which is UTTERLY irrelevant. They are armed and openly threatening law enforcement officers WHILE ILLEGALLY OCCUPYING A FEDERAL BUILDING. I can't believe I even have to explain this to you.

Let me lay it out for you. People like these nuts are dangerous. Anarchy is not a good thing--but if you think they're in the right, Have Gun Will Travel, why don't you go and join them?
I also don't take very kindly to their sympathizers calling for my death simply because I am a federal employee. So yeah, I want them taken out before they get me.
Is that plain enough for you? They have no right to threaten me or anyone else who is employed by ANY government agency, be it federal, state or local or law enforcement at any level. That is terrorism.

I am using reason and logic and the rule of law. It's not my fault if you don't want to hear it.

Because I am sick of these types of people. They're insane and they're just as dangerous as ISIS.
At least be honest with yourself: if they were not white rednecks--if they were black, Latino or Arab Muslim--they'd be dead already and you'd be questioning what took the G men so long to get them.
And in other news, Tamir Rice is still dead.

They are not protesters. They are terrorists and should be dealt with as such. They believe the federal government is illegitimate and is not allowed to own land even though that land is held by the American people. They will never attempt to settle their issues legally in court because, of course, the courts have no authority either because the United States of America doesn't exist. In their fantasy world, taking land, rights and property by any means necessary, including armed sedition, is acceptable. It's also okay to threaten police and law enforcement who are attempting to do just that: enforce the law.
This is what right wing hysteria does to people.
What do you do with them?
