I don't know, I'm having a hard time gathering sympathy for a cause that explicitly stated multiple times their intentions, and although many of the
members have now deleted their YouTube videos, I very clearly remember them promoting violence.
As I said - I'm having a hard time finding sympathy for these people, after all the chest-beating and empty threats they made, what did they expect to
Now - with that said, I would NEVER support a LEO, Fed/State/Local, shooting a suspect while on their knees and with their hands up. Is this the case?
I don't know, I wasn't there.
What I do know, is I've watched Ritzhimmers videos - one of which regarding Muslims, "You effed with the wrong country! Eff you! Eff your effing
book!," and he was red in the face, screaming at the top of his lungs. After talks of "bloodbaths," "death before jail," it absolutely amazes me at
how they are the ones playing the victim card, ESPECIALLY by using their family as justification (and they want donations).
Was this a "false flag?" Well, I feel like the term "false flag," has been thrown around WAY too much, and this - in my opinion - was by no means a
A group of armed individuals seized property that wasn't theirs, dished out multiple threats, didn't leave when asked peacefully by the townsfolk,
drove around in stolen vehicles under the influence, and have solicited donations from complete strangers.
I'm truly having a hard time even remotely caring regarding their situation, now - if they actually HAD been peaceful, and were more level-headed and
mature towards what they were protesting - I believe they would have gathered much, much more support.
I'm still a bit fuzzy as I've had differing opinions passed off "this is exactly what's happening/why they are protesting," yet it seems to be that
there are many different and conflicting opinions to this.
What really sealed this for me, was the townsfolk asking them to leave, and they didn't.
I certainly do not have expectations to break federal law and face no criminal wrongdoings whatsoever, I don't know why others feel differently?
And beyond this - it absolutely SHOCKS me at how some posters suggest that anyone who isn't offering their full-pledged support to these men are
"government lovers who love to see those who protest squashed," or whatever other ridiculous notions are used.
I've taken heat for it before, but I've peacefully protested - many times, in many different places. In no way, shape, or form, did I break laws
whilst doing this, and I CERTAINLY wouldn't have gotten bent out of shape for breaking the law and having to answer for breaking the law.
On the other side of things, how exactly are we meant to "protest," in the means of "inside the law?" Isn't that almost an oxymoron, I can certainly
see how some don't agree with that. But over the years, I've realized that I in no way would support an all-out armed revolution. I have no desire for
bloodshed, and further conflict.
As far as I'm concerned, that's not the correct way of going about these issues, albeit I can see how others disagree with this. But with that said,
I've done more than click away on Internet forums, and I certainly did not make threats towards anyone whilst doing so.
