Notes on the Occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

The Bundy group seems to have hoped to spark an uprising of the radical right, but even the radical right thinks they're crazy. On the other hand, #BlackLivesMatter and Islamics are angry. They  see this lot of heavily armed cranks being treated with patience and wonder why people of color and/or Muslims are being beaten and shot for minor, or even no, infractions.

And could we please stop calling it "a federal building?" It's the headquarters of a remote bird sanctuary, not an FBI office. All the buildings on the site put together might be the size of a few houses.
