A 'Liberty' Rebellion in Idaho Threatens to Undermine Coronavirus Orders

Source: MSN / New York Times

SANDPOINT, Idaho — Inside an old factory building north of Boise, a few dozen people gathered last week to hear from Ammon Bundy, the man who once led an armed takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.


The meeting, which appeared to violate orders by Gov. Brad Little of Idaho to avoid group gatherings, was an assertion of what Mr. Bundy said was a constitutional right to peacefully assemble. But Mr. Bundy said he also hoped to create a network of people ready to come to the aid of those facing closure of their businesses or other interference from the government as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.


“If it gets bad enough, and our rights are infringed upon enough, we can physically stand in defense in whatever way we need to,” Mr. Bundy told the meeting. “But we hope we don’t have to get there.”

In a state with pockets of deep wariness about both big government and mainstream medicine, the sweeping restrictions aimed at containing the spread of the virus have run into outright rebellion in some parts of Idaho, which is facing its own worrying spike in coronavirus cases.

The opposition is coming not only from people like Mr. Bundy, whose armed takeover of the Oregon refuge with dozens of other men and women in 2016 led to a 41-day standoff, but also from some state lawmakers and a county sheriff who are calling the governor’s statewide stay-at-home order an infringement on individual liberties.

6. Or as my late grandfather, a staunch atheist, would say:

"It is our god give right to be snake handlers. Now praise the Lord and pass the anti-venom".

He also had a very interesting version of the Lord's prayer, but that's a story for another day.

7. There was a lot of that mindset back in the 19th Century

A lot of backwoodsmen who didn’t let “government,” abolitionists, D**n Yankees or whatever tell them what to do and defied quarantines for such diseases as smallpox, yellow fever, measles, cholera, etc. and all too often brought contagion home with them. Friend Bundy might get to go through a brutal history re-enactment. So will families, friends, and innocent bystanders.

14. FU, Bundy and other idiots. My nephew is in med school in Boise - is in school to save lives.

Fu for not givng a damn about other peoples' lives (let alone your own - but that is your choice to gather together and increase spread during your meetings.) May your actions "Liberty" without life, is meaningless. Forcing that behavior onto others (who work in essential services, who live with people who do) via potentially spreading the virus among yourselves and then spreading it to others, is pure ignorance that raises to the level of malignant evil.

31. One opened in Meridian in 2016

https://www.idahocom.org/

It is a College of Osteopathic Medicine that opened in 2016. In modern America osteopaths and MDs are trained in the same things...but if someone would have opened a college in Idaho to train MDs, the “American Redoubt” crowd would have burned it down by now.

15. How dumb are they?

It was a little easier early on to give the mouthbreathers a pass because the news consisted largely of scary-sounding concepts such as "models" and "projections" of what was likely to happen in the US, plus coverage of furriners dying.

But now there is nonstop footage and stories from right here in the USA of many deaths, immense suffering, and easy transmission. Yet these kooks somehow think they're special? I agree with above posters--no medical care after they get sick.

21. It's unfortunate, but I guess we have to expect such blatant stupidity from certain segments.

It’s almost like one could write the script for this early on, and sure enough, there it is, for all to see. Stupidity on full display. Guns at their side and and a roll of toilet paper to wipe up the crap coming out of their mouths.

If they want to die, let them. They’ll be doing the rest of us a huge favor.

30. North of Boise is somewhat of an understatement

It's 4 1/2 hours driving time non-stop to be exact, just south of the U.S.- Canada border. Palin history notwithstanding, Sandpoint is a very cool and scenic spot, and the only place in Idaho where one can catch an Amtrak train to Chicago.

Still, as far as Idaho goes, it's the one and only option. Sadly, Boise was taken out of service over a quarter century ago.

28. They want the "freedom" to ignore lockdown orders

Then when they start dying, do we have the "freedom" to not treat them?

You want your individual liberty to ignore public health orders, you get the individual liberty to suffocate to death without treatment.
