I gotta hand it to Wonkette, they thoroughly cover the pillaging of western lands committed by the Bundy family and their allies. Just one paragraph of their much longer piece, worth the click:

Now that the John Brown of welfare ranching is a-moulderin’ in a jail cell awaiting trial, let’s look in at what’s happened to Gold Butte, the sensitive 350,000 acres of desert area near the Bundy ranch, since the unpleasantness of 2014. Sadly, the Bureau of Land Management, understandably leery of getting shot at, has pretty much stayed away from the area since the end of the standoff. That may be changing, as environmental groups and local Native Americans have been calling for increased federal protection of Gold Butte. Saturday, the day after Earth Day, members of the Moapa Band of Paiutes and other tribes staged a “culture walk” across 11 miles of Gold Butte to call attention to vandalism of cultural sites, illegal offroading, and ranchers letting cattle onto land where grazing isn’t allowed. You know — what the Bundyite crowd calls “responsible local control of the land.”

And yes, they drew dick pics on Native American artifacts. Ordinarily we wouldn't discuss such an off-color image here at C&L, but it's such a perfect illustration of what these folks actually are that I couldn't think of a better exhibit A for the prosecution. May they rot in jail for as long as the artifacts they damaged have been on the earth.
