Paragraph Of The Day: Josh Marshall Edition

It comes from a post about the Bundy militia, actually, it’s the whole damn thing:

Here where I live, if you pull a gun on a law enforcement officer, things go down hill pretty fast. But out in Bundystan, as long as you’re a far right militia member and/or white supremacist, apparently it’s not a problem. At least until now. Apparently the FBI is starting to investigate the Bundy outlaws as part of “formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations.”

Because Second Amendment. If you’re an African-American or even a homeless guy in Albuquerque, you get shot with few or no questions asked. I suspect the authorities were hoping these knuckleheads would leave when Fox News dropped them but, apparently, they have nothing better to do with their time. This should be interesting.

    Not just if you pull a gun…if you react to a police officer grabbing you inappropriately, you can be convicted of a felony.
    That is, if you’re advocating for a liberal cause

    I’m quite confused by putting this together with Bundy’s strategy. Specifically, saw a news article where Bundy is going to court to sue the Federal Govt (you know, the one which he doesn’t believe exists. Somehow, I’m guessing that he’s probably representing himself.) As part of it, he has released a list of activities which he is asking people to report. Several have to do with non-police pretending to be police. Armed people stopping cars. etc. Apparently he is planning to argue that the BLM is acting as some sort of de facto police without proper authorization.
    But if his folks are waving guns, stopping cars, etc. then he’s totally shot any shred of a case he may have started with to the lowest levels of hell.
