Power cults on the attack
In Nevada, some of the militia members in the vicinity of the Bundy ranch have set up checkpoints (link via Green Eagle) "where residents must prove they live in the area before they are allowed to pass". Who the hell do these people think they are, an amateur military occupation? This is way beyond a mere land dispute. If the authorities don't put a stop to this immediately, they're failing in their duty to protect the public.
In Texas, a gun cult is threatening to publicize the personal information of anyone who calls 911 on them for waving their dong substitutes around in public, and has already done this with one person, in an open attempt to intimidate anyone who would report their behavior. This, too is outrageous. If the authorities determine that a 911 call was made inappropriately, they have procedures for dealing with it -- and in this case the police have explicitly encouraged the public to continue to report the group's activities.
These are not the acts of isolated individuals (like this) who might simply be mentally disturbed. These are organized groups of power-crazed thugs openly terrorizing the public. If the government is not going to stop such flagrant violations of people's rights, why is it the government?
Update: Squatlo reports that, in the absence of anything else to confront, the militias around the Bundy ranch are increasingly turning on each other. Given that these are among the stupidest, most paranoid, and most heavily-armed people in the country, anything could happen. Let's hope they sort themselves out with no further danger to locals or BLM employees. See Rachel Maddow's report found via Squatlo.
