Vanderboegh speech at Bundy ranch warns Feds

Nationally known investigative blogger and gun rights activist Mike Vanderboegh was a featured speaker at the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada over the weekend. Vanderboegh was invited as the titular leader of the "3 percent" movement in America, and he had a warning for the Feds who are itching to inflame the standoff in Nevada into an all out civil war.

Vanderboegh stated that politicians like Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. are doing nothing but attempting to incite civil war with venomous rhetoric designed to malign the character of Bundy, his family, and all ordinary Americans who support him. His message to the Feds was, simply, the patriots who support Bundy are in this for the long haul. They are organized, focused, and determined. And they are ready to stay at the Bundy ranch as long as necessary to insure that not a single member of the family is harmed.

Of the federal agents and other government law enforcement personnel Vanderboegh declared, "You mess with such people {those who defend Bundy} at your own deadly peril." Further, he stated,

Today's Three Percent have drawn a line, just as you here drew a line, that we will not cross. We Three Percenters state very plainly to would-be tyrants that we will not disarm. They cannot convince us. They cannot intimidate us. They can kill us, if they think they can, but they should remember that we'll shoot back. That is the calculation that you presented the federal government the other day. They came to force you with state-sponsored violence. They came to bend you to their will. But they discovered that you would not be bent. On that day, they didn't like the odds. But the odds would have meant nothing without your determination. And you WERE determined.

But Vanderboegh saved some of his juiciest rhetoric for Harry Reid himself, who seems determined to crush and destroy the movement of the patriots who have come to the defense of a lowly cattle farmer in Nevada who is facing down a huge oppressive army of Feds:

Now we believe, as did the Founders, that government should serve the people. It is evident that many others believe differently. But this is not a question whose differing answers can be compromised, or negotiated or finessed. It is one or the other -- that of individual liberty codified by the Constitution and the rule of law under the Founders' republic, or the rule of man as represented by the law of the jungle backed up by the iron fist of tyrannical government.

Harry Reid understands this. You all saw what he said the other day: "This isn't over," he threatened. And you know what? He's right. It can never be over until one side or the other wins. And don't think he's just talking about the Bundys. He is promising us all civil war on a vast scale because state-sponsored violence is the only way they can win the argument with free people, especially free people who are armed and willing to use those arms in defense of liberty. Ole Dirty Harry understands that. But he mistakes the character of the people he wishes to victimize and subjugate. He mistakes you. He mistakes the true nature of all free Americans who intend to remain free. And history has shown that mistake to be a terminal one for many tyrants. For there are laws higher and older than any of Harry Reid's unconstitutional "laws," one of which is the Law of Unintended Consequences.

The entirety of Vanderboegh's speech at the Bundy ranch can be read at his blog, Sipsey Street Irregulars.

Vanderboegh founded the 3 Percent movement several years ago as a testament to the iron will of the first Patriots who fought for independence against England. They were called 3 percenters due to the fact that they adhered to "the doctrine of the 3 percent" -- that our brave patriots who fought for and obtained liberty from England never numbered over 3 percent of the population. Yet they defeated the largest and the most advanced and powerful army on earth -- that of the British Empire.
