And in Bundy Family News…

American Exceptionalism

Oregon’s most famous kiosk operator and noted birding enthusiast, Ammon Bundy has thrown his 10-gallon into  Idaho’s gubernatorial rodeo:

“I’m running for governor because I’m sick and tired of all of this political garbage just like you are. I’m tired of our freedoms being taken from us and I’m tired of the corruption that is rampant in our state government,” he says in a campaign video.

Oh, so he’s a reformer? (Spoiler Alert: No.)

[Bundy] is currently banned from the Idaho State Capitol Building after being arrested multiple times by Idaho State Police. During an incident in August of last year, Bundy refused to leave a committee room following a hearing and was removed by police in the office chair he was sitting in.

He’s running on the Republican ticket, I assume?

“Mr. Bundy is currently not registered to vote in Idaho, and he is not even registered as a Republican. Furthermore, we do not support his antics or his chaotic political theater. That is not the Idaho Republican Party, and we will not turn a blind eye to his behaviors,” Idaho Republican Party Chairman Tom Luna said in the statement.

Oh, so maybe he’s another asshole? Nailed it!

“… “I won’t bore you with the typical platitudes from politicians about how they’re strong conservatives, and how they support small business and education and all that. Nor will I pose in a hard hat at some random worksite talking to workers, nor will I show you pictures of me reading books to little children… I’m tired of our freedoms being taken from us and I’m tired of the corruption that is rampant in our state Government.”

Bundy also claimed President Biden is controlled by the “deep state,” and said that the president and the deep state are “going to try to take away our gun rights, freedom of religion, parental rights, and more.

We’re talking Idaho (ground zero of militias and potatoes), and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see him win the nomination.

    And if he gets elected and they don’t lift the ban on him entering the capitol, he can always govern remotely, via Twitter, following the examples of the man he’s admired so much, for so long now, TFG. (I recommend golf courses, as they seem to have the best cell coverage.)

    And there’s always Skype & Zoom…

    So many yahoos and such little respect for our country. I guess guys like Bundy and the many Oat nut keepers and such, were absent the day we were taught our countries motto. “Out of many, one”. Or how about the ever-popular “One Nation, …” So much of our country is about getting along but there are so many voices choosing other ways instead.
    The most hilarious part is they claim to be “patriots” yet have no idea at all of what that means.
    I understand “reeducation camps aren’t popular, but seriously, what else can we do?
    All this hate and division is not getting us anywhere.

    “That is not the Idaho Republican Party”. Specifics, please, Mr. Luna. I can’t see any difference.

    [sigh] ~ If we had just locked the Bundy Boys up when they broke into a tourist kiosk that was closed for the winter and called it an armed insurrection, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We didn’t, and here we are.

      Didn’t they end up going to a jury trial in California? And didn’t the jury decide they were innocent (on the grounds that those were their distant cousins, as far as I could tell) of the charges?
      If they’d had the trial in Clark County the people pissed off at the other ranchers having to foot the bill and having to deal with their feral cattle running around on the freeway from time to time might have chosen differently. But there really is no way of knowing. Cousins everywhere.

    isn’t ‘ground zero of militias and potatoes’ a tad bit redundant? and insulting to potatoes?

    “I’m running for governor because I’m sick and tired of all of this political garbage just like you are…”
    Is he calling his potential voters garbage?

    My reaction to his gigantic whine was “So are you, butt breath.”

    I blame home schooling. In part.

    I agree, but I must also point out that there is legitimate homeschooling going on as well. My granddaughter went straight from homeschooling to public high school.
    It’s the cretains who fail to fully educate their spawn and even go so far as to indoctrinate them in all sorts of crazy ideas.
