Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, who died in the shootout.


Guys, we are not sure, but we think big gub'mint tyranny may have winned. How else to explain what transpired Tuesday night as jackbooted feds descended upon the Oregon militia boys (and little girls!) illegally occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, during a traffic stop, and started a shooty-shooty, which ended with the feds arresting dingbat militia leader Ammon Bundy and six other constitutionally ignorant dongbeavers. The shootout claimed one casualty, 55-year-old Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, the group's spokesman. Bundy BFF and militia dickwhistle Jon Ritzheimer turned himself in and was subsequently arrested in Peoria, Arizona, around the same time, according to the FBI.

[contextly_sidebar id="oVTyKTLjBymPYBWVn5EVlp2Msz4qEeaQ"]According to what Ammon Bundy told his wife, as reported by another dingbat, Nevada Assemblywoman and big-tittied militia fetishist Michele Fiore, the shooting was TOTALLY UNPROVOKED, so we guess BLM stands for Bundy Lives Matter now, who even knows?

Fiore, a vocal supporter of the Bundy family, said that Ammon Bundy told his wife that Finicum was cooperating with police when he was shot.

But sources told The Oregonian/OregonLive that Finicum and Ryan Bundy disobeyed orders to surrender and resisted arrest.

Oh, so maybe it wasn't completely "Hands Up Don't Shoot."

Ryan Bundy got shooted too, by the way, but did not die.

You'll remember LaVoy Finicum as the dude who was interviewed under a tarp, either because it was cold or because that's where he chose to hide from the government on national television. Oh, and his code name may or may not have been "Fluffy Unicorn," because why wouldn't it be?

While it's easy to laugh, Wonkette takes no pleasure in this guy dying. Dude was a nutbag, obviously, because he was prepared to die for the "noble" cause of teaching the federal government a lesson about whether or not it's allowed to own land (obviously not, according to these morons). However, he also talked lovingly about his family in this interview with NBC News, and we're sorry for pain they're in right now.

Also very sad about the loss of their BFF, whose name they apparently cannot spell through their grief, is whoever runs the Bundy Ranch Facebook account:

Wonkette doesn't take pleasure in this whole fuckshow of a resolution either, because it gives militia-supporting dildo-weasels EXACTLY the martyrdom story they need to prove that YEP FOR SURE the government is doing tyranny to them, and it must be stopped.

It is definitely OK to laugh at the others now in federal custody, though. Here, from the FBI, is the full list of which dorkwad losers the gub'mint done captured in Oregon:

* Ammon Edward Bundy, age 40, of Emmett, Idaho

* Ryan C. Bundy, age 43, of Bunkerville, Nevada

* Brian Cavalier, age 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada

* Shawna Cox, age 59, Kanab, Utah

* Ryan Waylen Payne, age 32, of Anaconda, Montana

* Joseph Donald O'Shaughnessy, age 45, of Cottonwood, Arizona

* Peter Santilli, age 50, of Cincinnati, Ohio

[contextly_sidebar id="0ADn7QQSKsANJKlaNONfgZL9N425XZQH"]Not in custody? That buddy of theirs who murdered his dad. Maybe he was busy doing more murder or something and missed the big showdown.

The FBI says they are all charged with the same thing: "felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation, or threats." Ooh, FELONIES! All together now: ENJOY PRISON, FELICIA!

These buttnuggets occupied a bird-watching sanctuary for the heroic purpose of supporting criminals convicted of committing arson on federal land. And once they were firmly ensconced in their little federally owned hidey cave in the wilderness, oh what fun was had!

[contextly_sidebar id="lO5GdjisHWkSV9i9q7boaYmDC9tQgTOS"]For one thing, they quickly realized they really, really, REALLY needed some snacks, because they totally forgot to fill their fanny packs with snacks like their moms told them to. They needed Miracle Whip and tampons and those Walmart underpanties Ammon Bundy likes to wear on his freedom berries, and oh could you also send some Pall Mall Menthol 100's?

[contextly_sidebar id="kjmZOPVYeIB8fQIccoNKVWaITxnt4azh"]Instead, America doubled over laughing and mailed them a bunch of dildos, which made militia dude Ritzheimer SO MAD BRO. Shall we watch that video again and giggle?

Oh well, it's over now we guess. RIP LaVoy Finicum and all those wasted dildos and freedom and America and stuff.

Now look, commenters: We know there are parts of this story that are funny. The dead guy is not the funny part. And let's all remember to obey the fucking Rules For Commenting Radicals, OK? We don't want to have to do any jackbooted tyranny to you by threatening you with the Banhammer Of Loving Correction.

You may commence to making comments, which are not allowed.

On Monday, someone attempted to murder George Soros by putting a bomb in his mailbox. Also on Monday, someone threw a rock into House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's office. Also, I spilled some hot coffee on myself. These are all things that happened on Monday, and were by some measure unpleasant. While most people might say, "Yes, all of those things are unpleasant, but they are not equal degrees of unpleasant," most people are not Chuck Schumer.

In what appears to be an attempt to get someone on Fox News to describe him as a "reasonable guy," Schumer sent out a tweet today lamenting the "despicable acts of violence and harassment" being done by "both sides."

Republicans are KILLIN' IT in Florida, you guys! No worries about election day, Gators. It's all smooooooth sailing for the Sunshine State GOP. Just take it from Governor Rick Scott's lead pollster Wes Anderson, who produced a whimsical, unskewed poll for the campaign, featuring nostalgic jams about high Republican turnout in those good old days, telling the Tampa Bay Times,

As the linked slides indicate, Governor Scott currently leads Senator Nelson 51% to 46%, a lead that is outside of the margin of error.

It should also be noted that this sample from last week is very robust at 2,200 interviews of likely voters, stratified by county to reflect historic mid-term turnout. Our sample shows the Republicans with a one-point turnout advantage, even though we believe we will end up with a two- or three-point advantage. For historical context, in the past two mid-term elections Republicans had a four-point advantage in 2010 and a three-point advantage in 2014. At R+1, that makes our current sample a very conservative take on the likely partisan composition of this year's electorate.

NEEDZ MOAR BILL MURRAY.

No other pollster has replicated those numbers, with SurveyUSA, Quinnipiac, and CNN/SSRS all finding Bill Nelson in the lead, but if OnMessage, Inc. says Scott is running way ahead, then it must be true! Only OnMessage promises to "take your principles, your experience, and your opponent's weaknesses to develop a winning message plan that the voters will embrace." And who wouldn't trust a push pollster, right?
