“Finally, we acknowledge the comparisons that many are drawing between what is happening in Ferguson and the armed standoff that took place at the Bundy ranch this past April. The dramatic differences in law enforcement response to the two events are difficult to ignore. Why are white pro-gun activists able to point loaded firearms at law enforcement and avoid accountability under the law altogether while unarmed, peaceful African-American citizens are met with a militarized police force and mass arrests?”
You want to know why the Bundy ranch guardians were able to make the government back down, while Ferguson residents remain under the government’s jackboots, CSGV? It’s because at the Bundy ranch, the government knew that they would not enjoy a “monopoly on force”–that they would pay for their excesses in blood, more of it than they were willing to lose. The Ferguson cops, on the other hand, clearly like their overwhelming edge in firepower.
That’s your “government monopoly on force,” CSGV. Own it.

And Kurt nails it again…
Suddenly the specter of what CSGV has been wishing to happen to us might happen to them make the Ladd and his Laddites very uncomfortable. But they find themselves trapped with their own words and wants. It is incredible that a group of allegedly intelligent individuals would think themselves somehow immunized from the maladies of unchecked government just because they played cheerleader.

No, the difference is that Ferguson began with a criminal apparently attacking a police officer, and immediately moved to violence against otherwise uninvolved innocent people.
Bundy was the result of bureaucrats thinking they’re kings, and the people resisting COMMITTED NO VIOLENCE. They made it clear they had the capability, and that it would be directed and focused — they even kicked out hotheads who wanted to do what’s happening in Ferguson.
Frankly, I’m sick of people sweeping the violence of the thugs in Ferguson under the rug in an attempt to promote their concerns about the police. I share those concerns, but I think arsonists need to spend quite a bit of time in jail.
Yes, yes, and again, YES!
I believe it was Bob Owens that once wrote, “Never get into a logical debate with Kurt Hofmann.”
I agree. I have yet to read anything that he’s written that I could possibly find any fault in.
and he can boobytrap your ass in his sleep
Annnnnnnnnnd the race card…. /sigh/
I don’t know how they waited until the *third* sentence…
Convenient they don’t mention the police arresting media personnel, seizing/dismantling video equipment, and evicting media from a public restaurant so *THEY could eat…
Oh no, that’s incorrect, sir. They did it for the journalists “SAFETY”!
(Excuse me while I get a towel to wipe all that dripping sarcasm off my keyboard, what a mess!)

I’m sure quite a few Germans regretted their modest support for the Nazis when they were underdogs and helped vote Hitler into power.
People need to realize that governmental officials rarely operate with the citizen’s best interest in mind. They need to learn how to discern which political candidates and parties are willing to do anything to get into control. I think the acid test is gun rights. Only your enemy wants you disarmed. Ask yourself, which party is hell bent on taking away our firearms? Don’t vote yourself a one-way ticket to a re-education camp.
I’ve been telling folks they have 2a rights for a reason. And every time I was asked why Bundy got away with it, and ferguson protesters didn’t? My answer was “riots”. I have never been called a racist so much in my life. Silly me, I thought rights were for everybody, makes me sick…
