Another Republican Legislator Endorses Armed Insurrection

Shares

One has to wonder how many members of the Republican Party in the Montana Legislature have to express support for the Oregon militia before the Montana press takes note and begins to ask some difficult questions for these supporters of armed mobs and wannabe militias. The latest Republican in the Legislature to give rhetorical support to the Bundy Gang should come as no surprise, as she has long been associated with the fringe that is taking over the Montana Republican Party.

From Theresa Manzella (HD 85) on Facebook today:

militialegislature

Her reference to the “three percent” is especially troubling, as The Nation describes the three percent movement as the armed wing of the TEA Party lunacy:

A fair assessment of this strategy is that the Threepers intend to be the armed wing of a larger movement of Tea Partiers and patriots, in a manner not unlike the way armed movements of a revolutionary left once swam in a sea of like-minded supporters.

A growing movement within the Republican Party in this state is endorsing an armed insurrection against the country, offering support for a movement whose aim is nothing less than overthrowing the federal government. Surely the press should be asking Montana Republicans like Senator Fielder and Representative Manzella if they truly believe that actions like those of the Bundy militia are justified, and for some answers about their affiliation with groups like the Three Percent crowd.

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.

I’m confused. Does the Constitution call for “multiple use”? I don’t remember anything like that in the US Constitution, and if it’s in the Montana Constitution, it certainly doesn’t apply to Oregon. Help!

Agreed, you are confused. But most folks don’t have the narlies to admit that! A leetle background on mother Teresa manzilla. She’s is what she appears to be, another outta state christofundiwackmentalist WACK job sent her by G-O-D to save us from ourselves, the reprobate low life agnostic/atheist sinners that we are! You see, mother Teresa manzilla puts the thrilla in manzilla! She knows that we worship nature, just like she worships the ground that the Kockh brothers walk on! SHE is the one that is quite confused. But the question must be asked again, for about the thousandth time,… Read more »

I think Rep. Manzella is confusing the Multiple Use and Sustained Yield Act of 1960 (http://www.fs.fed.us/emc/nfma/includes/musya60.pdf) with the U.S. Constitution, which says nothing about multiple use.

Rep. Manzella would do well to read, or reread, the Congressional Research Service’s report on the constitutional history of public lands (http://www.law.umaryland.edu/marshall/crsreports/crsdocuments/RL34267_12032007.pdf).

It’s high noon in Bundyville. Time to go out alone and meet the bad guys in the street in a fight to the death. Oh wait. These are the bundy boys of the vaunted Snafu Legion of mormonn morons. If they’re gonna fight to the death, they’s gonna have their underage concubines run a leetle heavenly interference! Gary Cooper they are not! What a bunch of buffoons!

No, because you can’t. btw, sonny, the word that you misused is “necessarily”, not necessary. For the record, what was your highest grade level achieved? I promise not to laugh.

In other words, to quote my Hemmingway muse, this is the final JERK OFF! Fini, the end, and cum, to jerk off! Levoy, meet Leroy! Jeebus. Too funny. Levoy, with a 5.5 Manlicker on his side, informed the FBI and the residents of Burns, Ore., that he was willing to dictate the terms of his release. RELEASE, mind you. Not surrender!
