Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) took to the House floor Friday to express his disdain for the idiots at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge making his state look bad. What starts as a man with with a message ends with an extremely disgruntled lawmaker storming off in disgust.
Rightfully so. The Justice Department in its desire to not have a shooting war with armed imbeciles that could escalate into a nationwide crusade of right-wing extremist buffoons taking aim at federal agents, has decided on a course of action that includes no action at all. It’s the same course of action they took when Cliven Bundy scoffed at officials and had his cattle seized, leading to BLM workers being watched through the scopes of high-powered “patriot” assault rifles.
The congressman wants the same kinds of answers we all want: Why are the lights and the heat still on? Why are federal agents not doing everything in their power to make the nitwits holed up on the taxpayers’ dime as uncomfortable as possible.
It’s not quite that simple, of course, as shutting down the utilities would cause catostrophic damage to the plumbind and who knows what else when it freezes, but still. We feel your pain, congressman.
