The Truth About the BLM’s Land Management Policies
Melissa Dykes |
For all those people who believe everything the one-sided, agenda-driven mainstream media has reported on this issue, please take a look at reality.
The Oregon patriot militia takeover of the wildlife refuge began after ranchers were unfairly re-sentenced under terrorism statutes for controlled burning of vegetation on federal land.
Less than two weeks after the Hammonds were re-sentenced to five years — that’s sentenced twice for the same instance of the same “crime” they already did time for, just under different statutes — the Bureau of Land Management was filmed setting uncontrolled, unmonitored fires to land around Prince Glenn, Oregon. This is the same exact thing for which the Hammonds were put back in jail.
Some fires were lit within a mere 100 feet of corrals. Ranchers were reportedly told to stand down, forced to watch the fires creep closer to their lands, cattle, and homes and do nothing to intervene. They were told if they did, they would be arrested.
The video begins with a message from Ammon Bundy. Start around 2:55 to watch the feds light the fires that threatened these people’s property, livelihoods, and lives.
Again, burning back vegetation is the exact same thing the Hammonds were sentenced not once, but twice for — the second time under terrorism statutes. Makes you wonder who the real terrorists are.
The video clearly shows these unattended fires start to creep up on people’s homes… You can hear the ranchers talking about how the fires are cornering the cows and see the cows are burned alive.
Some 80 cattle reportedly died due to this particular string of government-set fires… and the government does this all the time.
As Gavin Seim wrote on his YouTube channel, “Two of Hammond men are being sent away for 5 years on terrorism charges because they did maintenance on the grazing land… Federal Bureau of Land Management is destroying property, terrorizing American families and torturing cattle.”
Do you see what’s happening here? It’s like watching the mafia send a message.
This should shed a lot more light on what happened in Oregon. While many people may not agree with the tactics the patriot militia used up there at the wildlife refuge, if the government comes and sets multiple fires around your land and walks away, leaving it to burn and potentially burn your animals alive and burn down your home while putting your neighbors in jail and labeling them as terrorists for actually doing a controlled burning of encroaching vegetation that doesn’t endanger everyone around it, well…
What would you do?
