Who said it?
We don’t need that. We don’t want it and we’re asking you to leave.
Answer after the jump.
Armed members of the Pacific Patriot Network are leaving the occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
Joseph Rice, a spokesman for the network, told reporters that his group presented occupation leader Ammon Bundy and other protesters with “articles of resolution.”
Todd MacFarlane, a Utah lawyer acting as a mediator, said occupation leader Ammon Bundy doesn’t want the armed visitors there.
Bundy’s message: “We don’t need that. We don’t want it and we’re asking you to leave,” MacFarlane told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
Why PPN thought Ammo Bundy wanted them to come to MNWR is indeed a mystery. At the end of his Dec. 30 FB post he writes:
CALL TO ACTION: All able body men and women come to Burns, Oregon on or before January 2nd. Come prepared and be willing to stand.
PPN showed up seven days after the deadline. That’s not fashionably late, that’s just gauche.
MacFarlane said he had just met with Bundy and other leaders of the occupation.
They’re “alarmed” by the arrival of Pacific Patriot Network members, some carrying rifles, and concerned about the perception they convey.
Ammo, please. Rifles weren’t the problem. A lack of snacks – that was the problem.
No word on how many Harney County residents were admitted to the hospital due to irony overdoses.
As an aside – “Articles of resolution”? I try to resist such comparisons, but sometimes the similarity between these morons and children playing make believe is really hard to ignore.
