I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: God needs new henchmen. The latest addition to God’s merry band of morons is Welfare Cowboy Cliven Bundy, who claimed that the confrontation in April between him and the Federal Government was part of a greater spiritual war between “good and evil.”
You don’t get any points at all for correctly guessing who he believes is “good” and who he believes is “evil.”
Bundy told an Independent American Party gathering in St. George, Utah, that God provided him with “personal inspiration” to steal federal land from the tax payers and put the lives of government officials at risk over a few damn cows he was too lazy to move:
“The Lord told me … if (the local sheriff doesn’t) take away these arms from federal agents, we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, ‘This is your chance to straighten this thing up,'” Bundy said, according to The Spectrum of St. George.
The BLM backed down on the standoff, and promised that Bundy will be held accountable for his role in the standoff as they continue to pursue the matter “aggressively through the legal system.” The case is still open through the DOJ.
About 100 to 120 people were in attendance at Sunday’s gathering, and Bundy questioned why more weren’t there, according to the Huffington Post:
“Where is all of your college students? Where’s our young and where’s our old? Where’s our black and where’s our brown?” he asked. “Where are you people? Aren’t you interested in freedom and liberty?”
Other Bundy family members talked about how they fasted and prayed for the spirit of their forefathers to be with them as they prepared on horseback to defy the Bureau of Land Management’s efforts to impound the cattle.
Maybe they didn’t show because they’re not completely and utterly insane?
Just a thought.
