Is it something about the Southwest? Are Freepers shy when actual violence seems immanent? Are Sovereign Citizens too crazy even for Freep?
It remains a mystery, but my personal hypothesis is simple tribalism. Maybe it's the influence of this evocative article's discussion of the silly rivalry between Colorado and Arizona militias, but I think it's that simple - minor cultural and vocabulary differences mean these guys aren't Freepers. Thus, they are viewed with default suspicion as to their true motives and virtue.
Still, you have a few 'special' Freepers who are either not super-loyal, or whose paranoia extends beyond their tribalism. So you have short, but crazy threads.
spirited irish dreams that now the Feds will be liable!
Wonderful news! Prayers have been answered. Now for vindication of Voy Finicum and possible restitution for his suffering family.Reddy heard the defense attorney got tazed, but not that he rushed the judge, I guess:
WTHeck?Bshaw wants to arrest the courtroom Marshalls, and loves him some jury nullification, since it's in his favor this time:
The treatment of the defense lawyer was a warning to any other lawyer who even thinks about defending a patriot in the future...
The judge should hold all of the Marshalls in contempt of court and jail them without bail, pending a citizen’s review and possible criminal charges, for impartiality’s sake.FreedomStar3028 keeps it grade school:
As for the verdict, you just witnessed the brilliance of the founding fathers in action.
The federal marshalls tackled and tased a defense lawyer after a not guilty verdict on his clients was delivered.WhirlwindAttack has dire portents!
F the Feds, and the State of Oregon. F them all in the A.
It will all come to a head soon if these oligarchs remain in power.norwaypinesavage decides the Feds have escalated:
It looks like the liberals just found out they can’t convict peace loving citizens, so they’ll just have to shoot more of them.Boomer has a plan to make the FBI administrated by the always fair and nonpartisan Congress:
I really want to support the police whenever I can but for whatever reason there are elements within certain departments that make it really difficult to do sometimes. The FBI has traditionally been known for their cool heads and honesty regardless of which party is in power.As is more and more where Freeper take refuge, Hacksaw focuses on how liberals are sad:
I agree with the Freeper who said our law enforcement agencies need to be under congress and not the executive branch. It's just too easy for a corrupt President, like we have right now, to use them wrongly because they will obey the chain of command even if the orders are wrong and probably illegal. Definitely illegal if the goal is to gun down a citizen who has not fired a shot at them or even had a gun in his hand or who was not attempting to attack them. Pretty hard for a team of police officers to make a case of self defense in that scenario; especially when it's all on tape and has been released to the media for distribution like the Finicum shooting was.
Great news. Libtards on twitter are all upset, I guess the feds should have shot them all and have been done with it.an amused spectator yells at a fellow Freeper who noted that some of the yahoos plead out:
When someone posts Fedgov propaganda on FR, I feel the need to correct it. FedGov already has the MSM working for it and its Narrative.mad_as_he$$ hates the government yet more:
There's plenty of people that share the "Bundys Are Guilty" Narrative on Twitter:
Check it out - you might like it over there better.
Got it? ;-)
The Marshal’s service behavior has been noted. I used to think they were the last fed agency that had some integrity.trebb is sure the Marshalls were super liberal:
The Marshalls are left wing thugs, frustrated that they couldn’t railroad them. Still going after them for the ranch standoff even though they haven’t been able to manufacture enough lies after two years....Candor7 knows Obama was involved somehow.
Ping to Fascism of Federal Government.'Revolt is coming!' he said on the 40-post thread.
The civilized veneer of the Obama administration is wearing very thin.
(The “peasants” are readying their pitchforks!)
