It seems as if the good folks won one for a change instead of the government’s thugs. Today it was announced that the BLM will remove themselves from the area of Clivan Bundy’s ranch and will no longer try to remove his cattle, either by running them to death in the heat with helicopters or just by rounding them up and rustling them.
The BLM totally misread the intent of the folks that showed up to help Mr. Bundy resist their “government” aggression. They thought all they had to do to stave off resistance was to shout “one step closer and you’re dead.” This time it didn’t work. The assembled crowd just kept coming slowly, one step at a time. The BLM would have had to start shooting people to stop them and even the lapdog media would not have been able to cover that up satisfactorily–and besides, some of the assembled crowd probably might have returned fire. They were ticked off enough.
The county sheriff finally got enough backbone to do what he should have done in the first place–disarm the BLM and order them out of the area, which he did, after an ultimatum from Mr. Bundy to step up and do his constitutional duty.
