Here’s some irony for you. After he encouraged his supporters to give up peacefully, Oregon terrorist leader Ammon Bundy told federal authorities in a recording that was posted on Thursday to “go home.”
It’s advice Bundy and his yahoos should’ve taken a long time ago.
“It is time to end this.”
Towards the end of last month, the scion of Cliven Bundy, Ammon Bundy, and several others were involved in a shootout with the feds. As a result, one person was killed, two shot, and Bundy taken into custody.
It couldn’t have happened any sooner, either; Bundy and his buddies cost the Oregon taxpayers a minimum of $500,000, as well as being a public hazard. So when he was thrown in jail after being deemed a flight risk, the population of Oregon breathed a collective sigh of relief.
Now, a 90-second recording from his jail cell shows why people with with the self-awareness of the thermostat shouldn’t give others advice.
In the recording, Bundy states that he’s in solitary confinement and that he only recently learned about his indictment. He says that his actions were motivated by the “government officials ignoring the people,” and added “taking over the refuge was not only right, it was the duty of the people to do.”
Then he gives the Oregon state police a bit of advice he would’ve done well to follow himself from the beginning:
Go home Oregon State Police. You have already killed enough. Go home FBI. It is time to end this.
Oh, they will be going home, Ammon. And so will you — only your home will feature bars and an orange jumpsuit.
