Lie #1 Ammon is an anti-government
VIDEO AND DESCRIPTION IMPORTED FROM YOUTUBE
This accusation always makes me laugh because not only is it a lie, but it is a total mischaracterization of the events and of my beliefs. The way the media tells it, it sounds like I led a group of wild militants, using hostile force and blasting our automatic weapons to forcefully takeover a government building. It’s just total nonsense.
First of all, I’m not anti-government. Think about it this way—if you don’t eat poison, does it make you anti-food? If you don’t do drugs, does it make you anti-medicine?
And if I don’t support government overreach nor the open, plain, and obvious corruption in government, does that make me anti-government or just anti corruption? I think it’s pretty obvious.
The story of what happened at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge has been completely distorted and it has nothing to do with militantism. It has everything to do with protecting the rights of our neighbors who were being bullied and abused by corrupt government officials who were trying to steal their land.
And contrary to the popular media accounts, we had the support of the local people who were there and we never broke a single, solitary, law. Let that sink in. We never broke any laws.
Anyhow, the entirety of the TRUE STORY can be seen by clicking on this link, so you can determine for yourself what really happened, and you can see, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that the caricature created and narrative created by the media was and is patently false.
