Mutiny from stern to bow

Huh. If memory serves, when a bunch of smelly hippies, Injuns and uppity colored people tried pulling this seditious shit they got shut down right fast, shot all to be damn, jailed, and vilified for decades afterward.

Even candidates for office were derided for having “palled around” with them.

Ah, but I was so much older then. I’m younger than that now.

    And they’re so much nicer today : http://www.wunderground.com/

    Stan, that’s funny right there.
    Guess the Bundy clan figured that grabbing assault weapons and taking over a federal building is easier than getting a real job. Put a law enforcement cordon that’s tighter than a gnat’s ass stretched over a rain barrel (there it is again Patrick) around that building and surrounding area and just wait them out. Patience is what’s needed.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I wonder what Teddy Roosevelt would have to say to this crowd.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        “Every reform movement has a lunatic fringe.” TR
        How’s that?
        Now, what’s for lunch at the Rancho Pendejo cafe?

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        I haven’t contemplated lunch yet, Pat. Dinner is likely to be a combination of leftovers and new stuff, maybe bean burritos smothered in green with a side of Mexican rice and a salad.

        Still got that leftover chorizo, though … I may have to add tacos to this combo platter.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Sandy decided to make whole wheat pizza dough. What was I to do but make the salad and cut up some grilled chicken, sweet yellow onion, bell peppers, and kale for the toppings? We washed ti all down with a Sierra Nevada Nooner Pilsner.
        Time to waddle out to the garage and get the Niner lubed and polished for the boyos at the LBS. And remember, taking a dirty bike to the shop is like going to the dentist without brushing your teeth.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Not even free beer will save you then.

        We did huevos rancheros here. Next, the walking of The Boo, and then the riding of the bike.

      • Larry T. Says:

        PO’B – or going to the proctologist without wiping your ….
        which is what I used to say when someone brought me a dirty, disgusting piece of exercise equipment to work on.

    And just as Charlie Pierce points out, Tamir Rice is still dead.

  4. khal spencer Says:

    Agree with O’Brien. Surround them. No food or water. Let ’em starve to death or come out with their tails between their legs. Idiots.

    • khal spencer Says:

      Forget the Weather Underground. When the lunatic right pitched a tantrum in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957, Eisenhower sent in the 101st Airborne and federalized the Arkansas National Guard because Gov. Orval K.K.K. Faubus was using them to enforce illegal segregation.

      I suspect these toy soldiers don’t think the Kenyan in the White House would have the backbone to do the same and unfortunately, they are calling his bluff. Asshats….send in troops.. We need to stop this seditious shit once and for all.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Gotta be a tough call. Waco remains very much in the back of the federales’ minds, I imagine. Make martyrs out of dipshits and you may create more dipshits. Hm, where else have we done that?

        That said, it must be an awful temptation to send in the B-52s on this little love shack. And no, not those B-52s.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Now there is an idea. Send in low flying P-3’s and instead of firefighting foam in their tanks, just a lot of water laced with dilute LSD.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        After reading Charlie Pierce’s piece, linked from weaksides reply above, I am starting to wonder about my suggestion for patience. Maybe a couple dozen of Chicago’s finest, along with the SWAT team from Ferguson, would convince them to lay down their guns and quietly surrender.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        In the meantime, they’re getting all the free publicity their “movement” could ever desire. The Oregonian is keeping an eye on things.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Strategy is important. Sometimes Grant’s Vicksburg strategy ain’t a bad one. Siege.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Remember Wounded Knee? Doubt the wasichu can expect any solidarity from AIM in a turf war with Uncle Sam.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        The terrorists occupying the wildlife refuge don’t have any hostages. So, I guess a siege isn’t a bad idea if they can isolate them in a small area, and turn off the utilities to the building and arrest them when they try to leave. Surely they are in a no camping area. Must be a misdemeanor violation of federal law. If they are armed when they leave, then order them to disarm as they approach. If they raise their guns, shoot them, with extreme prejudice.
        Or we could try this.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Add Kevin Drum to the surround ’em, wait ’em out, pants ’em and imprison ’em crowd.

      • weaksides Says:

        Pat O’Brien, you’re forgetting one crucial detail with the shooting suggestion- they’re the wrong color for death by cop.

  5. Patrick O'Grady Says:

    Ho, ho. Occupy Wall Street is hashtagging these dudes as #YallQaeda on Twitter. I proposed #Daeshbags, but I think theirs is funnier.

  6. khal spencer Says:

    YallQuida’s role models.

  7. Hurben Says:

    This post caused a few dusty neurons to glow.

    My copy of Jerry Rubin’s “We are everywhere” still sits on my bookshelf, dusty & unread for decades.

    He was a piece of work, from radical activist to wall street multi-millionaire.

    From sticking it to the Man to becoming the Man

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I’ve lost my copy of Jerry’s book, but I still have a few others in my lefty collection, among them “Weatherman” and Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book.” Seems a thousand years ago.

      Commie claptrap

      • Hurben Says:

        If you want a copy of Jerry’s book to complete your Commie, Pinko,Anti-American collection, let me know, I’ll send you mine, it means less to me & is far less relevant.

        Next minute you’re going to be telling me that you have more Whole Earth Catalogs than me..

        Video sort of triggered memories of when we’d get called up to protect the police while they beat the shit out of protesters

      • Hurben Says:

        Indeed, it all seems at least a century ago..

    Here is the NPR story. They have broken in to a building.

    Can’t help by remember the old George Carlin, “An unarmed man has barricaded himself inside his house, but nobody is paying an attention to him.” from his silly newscast. These bozoa will get cold and run out of hot chocolate soon enough.
