Far Right Militia Groups Worry That Bundy Boys Will Start Civil War II

When you've lost the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, maybe it's time to call it a day.
Far Right Militia Groups Worry That Bundy Boys Will Start Civil War II

When you've lost the wingnuttiest of the wingnuts, maybe it's time to stand down and call it a day, Bundy boys.

The Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters seem to be aggravated over the Bundy Boys' occupation in Oregon, and besides, they think they're all "fcking morons."

But that doesn't mean they've outright condemned them. No, instead they're cooking up some kind of half-baked conspiracy theory about how there's a false flag or other argle-bargle to distract from what's happening there in Oregon and suggest it could end in civil war.

Jeebus, people, take a breath.

Right Wing Watch:

Stewart Rhodes of the Oath Keepers isn’t the only “Patriot” movement leader slamming the armed militia takeover of a federal building in Oregon. Mike Vanderboegh, the leader of the Three Percenters militia group, wrote on his blog yesterday that the group in Oregon, which is being led by sons of rancher Cliven Bundy, is full of “sociopaths and idiots” and probably includes some who are working for the government.

Nevertheless, Vanderboegh, who warned at the Bundy ranch that the standoff could lead to “civil war on a vast scale” and more recently warned that a new Oregon gun buyers’ background check law could also lead to a civil war, wrote that if the federal government ends the Oregon standoff with force, he will have no choice but to join the Bundys in — you guessed it — a civil war.

In a statement published on his blog, Sipsey Street Irregulars, yesterday, Vanderboegh called the leaders of the Oregon takeover “federal provocateurs, sociopaths and idiots with a John Brown complex” and said that there are “far fewer than is claimed” occupying the building, adding that they have “written a check that they expect the rest of us to cash in our own blood in a ghastly civil war.”

Maybe a nice anti-anxiety medication is in order.
