Ryan Bundy to OPB: We’ll Leave if The People of Harney County Want Us Gone

The armed militants occupying a federal building in Harney County, Ore. will leave peacefully if the people of the county want them gone, a leader of the group tells Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Ryan Bundy, a Nevada cattle rancher leading the seditionists with his brother Ammon, says the group will hold a community meeting with Harney County residents, according to OPB's John Sepulvado.

"This is their county – we can't be here and force this on them," Bundy tells Sepulvado.


This was published at about 6PM Pacific. If they stick to this (I have zero doubt the locals will ask them to leave at that meeting), then it looks like this has a good chance of ending without bloodshed and destruction. I'd like to see arrests, but the main thing is that no one die for this foolishness.

Camping out in the cold is really no fun it seems.

15. OTOH people now know about the Hammonds, which was their goal

So, in that sense, they accomplished what they wanted to and are heading home.

5. Translation:

It's cold as hell up here and no one thought to bring enough rations to make it through the winter! Oh...I know we said we'd be here for years....and this cause is too great to surrender, so please send us your support, mainly in the form of heating fuel and snacks.

21. Their loophole was they said they'd die for the cause WHEN THE CHIPS WERE DOWN

Now we know what they meant.

9. Local schools closed for up to a week or more.

Many eastern Oregon school children are getting a few more days of holiday this week near Burns. Parents and school officials are worried about security for children since an armed group began occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

~

Nearly a dozen Burns-area schools are closed. Some won’t start again until at least January 11, while others are assessing closures day-by-day like the tiny elementary in the community of Diamond.

Yeah, the locals must really love these guys.

10. Yep. I suspect a concise summary of locals' comments at that meeting...

 

...will be "don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out."

Still, I've always found the people out there to be a friendly lot...maybe they'll pitch in and buy the seditionists some snacks for the trip.

13. Looking for a way out to keep from looking like candy ass quitters.






I think the fun was over for them after the first thirty minutes or so.

They will all be compared to the half governor from now on.

16. Looking for a face-saving way out

Will declare mission accomplished, respect for the wishes of the people, etc. Then go home and get warm where there's Red Bull and Cheetos.

17. Sounds like they are looking for a face-saving way out of an ill-considered attempt

at grandstanding.

19. Maybe if they hadn't thrown all their change

on the sidewalk while mocking land use fees they might have been able to use it for the snack machine.

22. Go away from our refuge / Leave at your own chosen speed

You're not the ones we wanted / You're not the ones we need

Gotta love the Turtles.
